    Absolute minimum requirements for kegging?

    I'm leaning towards the Sanyo 4912 with a twin faucet tower. I definitely want to be able to have two brews at a time going.

    nOOb dumb kegging question #2.

    I hear people refer to "chest freezers". You really want a chest "REFRIGERATOR", right, not a "FREEZER"? :confused:

    nOOb dumb kegging question #1.

    Do I have to keep the beer in the corny keg cold immediately, or can it be stored at room temperature until it is ready to go into the kegerator?

    Absolute minimum requirements for kegging?

    at this point. As for budget, if I could do something for less than $500.00, that would probably be ideal.

    Absolute minimum requirements for kegging?

    to have to carbonate my beer prior to kegging. I would like to have two taps. Now I'm getting picky, huh?

    Powdery substance on bottlecaps

    I bottled my Barleywine this weekend. I had a handful of bottle caps that I had left in some StarSan in a bowl. The starsan had turned cloudy, so I removed the bottle caps and rinsed them in a Mason Jar with scalding hot water from my "always hot" tap. I then put them in another clean bowl...

    Beer Styles & Flavors

    styles is a great question. Those on this site should have a more informed opinion than your typical Coors Light drinker (or at least we would like to think that - no offense to Coors Light Drinkers). There are a ton of beers out there. I say find a local grocery store that has a bunch of...

    Okay, It's been 68 hours....

    no signs of fermentation. Wheat beer. 6.6 lbs Coopers Wheat LME, 1 oz bittering hops, 1 oz finishing hops 1/3 oz irish moss. Wyeast 3068. I think I got a bad batch of yeast. Temps were correct at pitching.

    Starter Vessel?

    Don't you need an airlock or some type of blow-off?
