May be interested in some Dog Fish brewery stuff.
You ever have Wheach? Plenty around to give away. Most places in my area stopped carrying it. After tasting it, I can see whey.
Really into their unfiltered wheat though. Good stuff.
Got some great ideas. Thanks all. Will be a little more patient for a good deal, but looking like a HD freezer which is always on sale seems to be the way to go. We also have a Sears outlet near by that sells dent and scratched appliances at decent prices, thanks to the person who suggested...
Used frig or freezer too pricey in my area. Live in the St Louis area and check CL every day. People still want $150+ on average for a frig 9+ years old. Freezers are not much better.
May be time to look new and pay the premium.
I wonder how many brewers buy new rather than used frig or...
My favorite are wheat beers and the only batch I have made so far is wheat, and plan on doing another next weekend. Let us know how this works out. I would like to experiment with hybrid wheats myself. I think there is plenty of room to mix wheats for some unique flavors.
Best of luck to you sir.
This is what America is about. As a small business owner myself, I appreciate it when people put some skin on the line to make it work for them. America was built on small businesses and will survive on small businesses.
Good luck and will keep track of your...
thanks tremendously for the information. Going to get that temp controller for sure and the space heater. Still contemplating on drilling into the frig, seems like it may work without, but will see how it goes, then see if I have to drill.
read too to tape the probe to the carboy...
hey running, are you fermenting same type of brew (ale or lager)? I'd love to have like 4 going, and freezer is the best way to go, but don't want to limit myself.
Forget it, I guess I can get a belt to warm up the ales if need be. Just thinking out loud.
For fermentation. Mostly ales, maybe occasional lager. Many deals on craigslist to pass up. Simple standard frig, freezer on the top.
Was going to get a freezer, but only have space for a stand up frig at the moment.
Just getting a frig and a Johnson digital temp controller.
nvr2low, already got the advance on Village Burger. My sister lives in Liverpool and she said I can't leave without eating a Spitfire burger there. Into hot foods and she says this will do it.
Thanks for the tips everybody. What was going to be a fun family gathering, will now be tons of fun...
Will be spending most of my time in Liverpool, so seems like Limp Lizard is on the list for sure. Thanks for the info.
bierhaus, I enjoy all types of beer, and the tusk is a place I would definitely frequent. Thanks for the tip.
