    New to kegging. What size CO2 cylinder should I get?

    I've found a cannabis grow supply place near me that does 20# CO2 exchange for $11. They will exchange cylinders that are out of date without any extra cost (they never check the date). Their supply seems to sort of rotate among the three local welding gas companies.

    Dehumidifier in Keezer ?

    SEndorf, I have one of those upright dehumidifiers linked in your first post, but we in NorCal haven't made it into our wet and humid season since I got it - we are still dry and on fire. I got it to use in my keezer because of the low temp usability - it uses a desiccant like the rechargeable...

    Yes, this is another thread about selling beer... but on a tiny scale.

    Hey MMP126, I think you miss-read what BuzzedBomber was saying. He said he did open a brewery and restaurant for $500K in response to someone else saying you needed $1-2 million.

    Have you talked to insurance companies to get this ridiculous number? When I was at NanoCon 2019 there were a couple insurance companies represented - I did not get hard numbers because I did not have a location, but $45,000 a year was not anywhere near what the reps were talking about...

    Yes, this is another thread about selling beer... but on a tiny scale.

    It is easy to think that, but in your 66 years a lot has changed - beer laws have changed dramatically allowing the microbrewery industry to explode and in many states you can buy and use weed legally - unthinkable when I was young. At one time they actually made all booze illegal in the USA -...

    I appreciate the tenacity of the OP for sticking to the topic and not getting frustrated with the naysayers! Where I'm at in California, folks selling at farmers markets do pay sales taxes, they are regulated by appropriate authorities (depending on whether they are selling fresh...

    is there a low-rpm electric stir paddle on the market?

    I have checked into the Mattmill - a bit on the pricey side, the only thing that stopped me was they wanted me to pay German VAT, which is BS since they don't need to pay that to the German tax collector on products exported out of the EU. So I would have had to pay the German VAT and then pay...

    Ipb-16s replacement sensor

    Hey Aress99, I don't see a link or any details about the NTC sensor from Amazon that you said works perfectly. Can you post some details?

    Ipb-16s replacement sensor

    BannonB, I'm super interested in a report back on that thermistor probe from TTI, Inc, and how it compares to using the thermowell. My concern with using a thermowell in a RIMS setup is the potential delay in response causing me to over-shoot my mash temps.

    Glycol Temp Control Set Up

    Thanks so much changchuyo, 3/8" will work perfect with my existing system. Now I know what to ask for when I order. Cheers!

    Glycol Temp Control Set Up

    Hello rdavidw & changchuyo, What size SS tubing did each of you use? The link posted by rdavidw is to 1/2-inch OD tubing, and the tubing in changchuyo's photos looks like it could be 1/2-inch. I'm asking because 10-inch coils is the smallest diameter I see in stock coils on the Stainless...
