    Turning your Fermonster into a complete closed transfer system for cheap!

    I tried this method with my fermonsters and it didn’t work very well but this little easy set up works like a charm to go from fermonster to keg. It’s not oxygen free but certainly greatly reduces exposure. I attach a liquid post to the tubing and push it into a keg with a couple psi of...

    Omega OYL-200

    I was thinking the same thing. Even if you’re a hyper vigilant Homebrewer you’re not achieving sterile conditions. I love Omega Tropical IPA I have brewed with it numerous times and always with great results. I pitch it warm - mid 80s and hold it there for a week and it’s done. The results are...

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    I have a roll of vinyl tubing on a garden hose reel that I run up from my basement directly off my well pump out to the garage for brewing in the winter time. I run the chiller tubing out into the yard creating an ice skating rink. With the cold ground water I can chill pretty quckly though.

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    I brewed 5 beers in January at night because I'm a 3rd shifter it was single digits all 3 brewdays. You can't let a little thing like cold weather get in the way of brewing.
