    10-gallon corny kegs for under $100

    I use them for aging. Just finished a bourbon barrel stout. Aged in the keg for 6+ months. It's nice to be able to bottle right out of the keg using a beer gun.

    10-gallon corny kegs for under $100

    These things are still popping up on EBay occasionally. I just bought 2 for $50 each. When they showed up, they were still in the original boxes. They had never even been used. The manufacture dates were 2014. I've recently been looking for kegs with 'local pickup only' set. People tend to...

    Looking for beer gas sources in Buffalo NY

    Yep - Overall, you can't beat the CO2 prices. I think I'll probably pickup a new 20lb tank and get that filled rather than re-certifying my 10lb tank. 20lb should last me a long, long time, and the 10lb tanks are kind of an oddball. Most places won't take them for trade-in. I can probably get...

    Looking for beer gas sources in Buffalo NY

    Had mixed results at Irish Carbonic. I got a 5 lb CO2 tank filled, and it was quite a bit cheaper than expected. The fill came to $15. It literally took about 3 minutes to get the tank back. I'll definitely go back for that. I had issues trying to get the beer gas. I assumed they could do a...

    Looking for beer gas sources in Buffalo NY

    I have a beer gas tank and regulator, so I'm all set. I've been paying about $25 for a 5 lb tank of CO2, which seems kinda high to me. It keeps going up. I miss KegWorks. I have a 10 lb tank that needs certification. Most places need to send the tank out for the certification. Looks like I'm...

    Looking for beer gas sources in Buffalo NY

    That seems like it may be my only option. I might need to take a few hours off of work. Does Irish Carbonic do fills, or just swaps?

    Looking for beer gas sources in Buffalo NY

    Just like the title says, I'm looking for sources of beer gas in/around Buffalo NY. I bought a nitro tap, and I have some aged bourbon barrel stout in a small keg I'd like to get flowing. I go to a welding shop in Kenmore for my CO2. They don't do beer gas. I'm aware of Irish Carbonic, but...

    Homemade PBW Recipe

    I use this mixture as well. It works great. This stuff will suck up moisture. Make sure you have a bucket with a lid that seals tight. Otherwise you'll end up with a lumpy mess.

    Broken Glass Carboy Horror Stories Compendium

    They make 10 gallon cornys as well. I've bought them on EBay for as little as $30. Usually I pay around $75. You just need to look for them. I bought a few corny extra lids and drilled some holes in the old lids to be able to ferment. Drill a hole, add a grommet, add an airlock, and you're good...

    Broken Glass Carboy Horror Stories Compendium

    I use Better Bottles as well, but I've had some issues with longevity. After 4+ years they seem to get brittle. I've had 4 crack on the bottom. It's always in the same place, and luckily I've never lost a batch because of it. I did find one while filling a carboy with wort, so I lost a little...

    Knockoff 630SS Perlick thoughts?

    Personally I'd go with the ss perlicks. You know what you're getting and the quality is great. I've had some of mine for 8+ years. Never had a problem. My friend bought some chrome knockoffs and they are peeling all over the place. They are expensive, but totally worth the extra money.

    Passivate equipment...

    I think Barkeepers Friend will work as well. It uses oxalic acid.

    Used buckets

    Lowes sells food grade buckets for ~$5. Look for the white ones. Add a Gamma Lid, and you're in business. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Encore-Plastics-5-Gallon-Commercial-Food-Grade-Bucket/3694238...

    cat-proofing a keezer

    I second the flow control taps. I have them on my kegerator. They will completely shut off any beer flow. They are also great for minimizing foaming, especially on your first pour from a semi-warm tap. Definitely worth the extra $10.

    Fermentation chambers - let's have a good discussion on what you all are using!

    I use a large chest freezer with a temp controller. I liked it until I injured my shoulder. It's getting harder to schlep the carboys in and out of the chest freezer. I'm in the process of constructing a pole barn on my property. My plan is to build a walk-in fermentation chamber there.

    Barley Crusher - Customer Service????

    When I sent mine in, I never got a confirmation that it was received and never got a confirmation that it was repaired. I just got it back weeks after I sent it in. I didn't even pay for the return shipping. That was after months of emails to the guy asking about getting it fixed. I don't even...

    Barley Crusher - Customer Service????

    I've mentioned before, it was a great product for several years, until it wasn't. For the money, I think I got a lot of use out of it. My biggest peeve was that the item carried a lifetime warranty that turned out to be useless. If I wasn't promised a lifetime warranty, I probably wouldn't be...

    Yep - works for me as well. I use the real Oxiclean free though.
