    is there any simple stout recipe, with very simple ingredients???

    I'm a shoot-from-the-hip type brewer and just end up throwing things into the pot. Here's the last stout I did and thought it came out pretty well. ---5 gallon batch----- 6# pale ale malt (45L) 2# pilsner malt 1# briess caramel (40L) 2/3# english black Mash @ 152F (67C) for 60 minutes 1 hr...

    DIY Kegerator: Moving Beyond Functionality

    @tonymark I used 1" foam and built up to a total of 2" on all sides except the door. The thinner foam allowed me to stagger / step the joint and I used spray foam as the adhesive. 4" of foam like you're doing is probably the start of diminishing returns. You may want to focus on getting it air...

    DIY Kegerator: Moving Beyond Functionality

    Thank you for compliments. But in the interest of full disclosure, the refrigeration components just kicked the bucket not even a year in. My thought is that I loosend a joint somewhere allowing gas to slooooowly escape or kinked a line just enough to strain the compressor. Noise from the...

    Calling all Information Scientists

    My interest is piqued despite the fact that I needed to look up "ontology" in a dictionary before responding. Honestly I'm still a bit confused with the point at which you're trying to arrive. Mind clarifying?

    Starting a cabinet-erator Project

    I did something similar last summer. The article (Moving Beyond Functionality) is published here on HBT with some really helpful comments from other members. My suggestion is to put a lot of thought into how to make the insulated door air-tight. I'm using weather stripping, but it's still not...

    Southern MD brewers club

    There is a brew group down this way called Hollywood HopHeads (search Facebook). The guy that runs it already does bulk grain and homebrew supply orders. I'm a mead maker if you're looking for that specific genre of brewing and need local contacts.

    what brewery is this?

    FYI. Click the "under 21" button on the Knee Deep website and it sends you to a PBS website. .....hand-eye coordination be damned.

    Mead Recipe

    No futuristic facility that I know of. However a 5gal pail isn't exactly 5gal. It can be more like 5.4-5.75 gal. And at 12lbs/gal, that's closer to 70#. Plus I know it's a lower moisture because it has a haze due to crystals. But no, I probably didn't get an extra 10# from moisture alone. So I...
