    Best advice to give a new brewer?

    As many have said don't jump into it all at once. Sure you could spend thousands of dollars all at once buying all the things you think you might need but I've found it's best to make smaller equipment purchases and figure out if they work for your brew day. Doing lots of research and reading...

    What's in your fermenter(s)?

    I brew ten gallon batches. Smaller batches sound interesting to try different style/recipes/technics but I just brew from recipes I've done over the years with small changes if any. Sometimes I'll split a batch though like in a wheat, I'd flavor one or both differently. I'm always afraid if I...

    What's in your fermenter(s)?

    It's Brew Day Saturday - coffee is on and the mash is going so by mid-afternoon I should have a Maibock/Helles Bock in the fermenter.

    A gargoyle tap handle . . . that sounds super cool!

    What came in the mail for you today?

    I've been waiting since the first week of December for my order, granted we are neck deep in a shipping nightmare with the plague but zero follow up from them. I have contacted them several times about my order and they are always good to talk to but what bothers me the most is they aren't...

    What came in the mail for you today?

    I told them I'd wait for a couple weeks with the hope my order gets filled and if it doesn't I try to swap it with something in stock or just cancel my order and hope I get a prompt refund.

    What came in the mail for you today?

    NOTHING from MoreBeer for me either! I've ordered a few things from MoreBeer in the past but this kegerator deal has me baffled. I've seen on their site reviews from purchased kegerators for the 3 & 4 tap models, "Purchased 2 weeks ago", both of which according to their site are labeled...

    Very nice, looks like a good quality mill! It should serve you well and give you better control with your brews. Milling my own grain has been a lot better with my brews. Good Luck!!

    What came in the mail for you today?

    Yesterday I got a box of food for our African Grey - still no kegerator. Called MoreBeer, the kegerator unit is in stock but the tap tower is backordered. I asked if they could ship the kegerator now then ship the tower when they get more. They aren't able to do that but they could alter my...

    What came in the mail for you today?

    I called MoreBeer and they said they were expecting more "any day now". Strange but they said my order would be shipped from the west coast, not sure why they would ship to Wisconsin from the west side facility. Really weird - I'll give them a few more days then call again. Thanks for your...

    What came in the mail for you today?

    Well I guess there's a strong possibility the one I ordered in December is on it's way then too. Good for you!

    You know you're a home brewer when?

    Terrible accident and I'm glad no one was hurt . . . other than the mashtun. I hope your son didn't learn any new words.

    You know you're a home brewer when?

    Good thing it's the garage and not somewhere in your home - still sucks though.
