    WTB 7/16 barbes tailpiece for a shank

    Anybody know where I can get one of these $1 pieces for cheaper than $6 shipping? If anybody has an extra one, I would be more than happy paying a buck for it and shipping. Thanks! Tuck

    Homebrew Store

    Nobody think there's a decent demand for a local homebrew store in Baton Rouge? I think the selection that Marcello's has is crap. Something I've always wanted to open.

    Pumpkin Ale vs. Christmas Ale

    Hi all, I wanted to do both a pumpkin ale and a christmas ale for this coming winter. My question is, would they taste nearly the same? I've heard that you don't really taste the pumpkin in a lot of pumpkin ales, but rather just the pumpkin spice. Are they going to be too similar? I plan on...

    Please help my 3 month old daughter

    Hey guys, I realize I haven't posted in a while. Still enjoying homebrew, but with a new baby and working 60+ hours a week, "me" time is very minimal. As i get a moment to reflect, I ask you for 20 seconds of your time. We have never really won anything, but my daughter is in a photo contest to...

    F*ck Gustav

    I'm writing from a connection tethered from my cell phone on a charged from my laptop. I think 90 percent or of us are out of power in Baton Rouge, and we are told to expect power in about 3-4 weeks. WEEKS! We got tore up over here, and I don't know what the national media is talking about, but...

    BJ's Restaurant Brewhouse

    Anybody have one near them? Seems like they have quite a few restaurants. They are moving into Baton Rouge and I checked the website and surprisingly found the malts, hops, ibu, SG, and ABV. Everything but the Yeast which I'm guessing might not be too hard to figure out. Any body had one of...

    Another What the Hell am I to use this for?

    A friend of mine had this keg laying around his house for several years he said. I think it's aluminum because it's rather light and looks slightly pitted, although it may just need a good cleaning. I don't know if i should use a scouring pad or what. It's like 3.785 gallon or somewhere around...

    Make your own LME

    Ever made your own LME to store and brew at a later date? What are the problems with this. It seems all that the extract manufacturers do is continue to boil until most of the water is removed. For recipes like Edwort's Haus Ale, it's all grain and I can't do it. I haven't found an extract...

    Soda in soda kegs

    I really don't know where to post this so hopefully the mods can help me out. Has anyone actually bought the boxed bag soda concentrate from Sam's and put it in the corny keg and poured from the tap. Would you have to dilute it with boiled water that doesn't have oxygen and then pressurize it...

    Ventmatic vs. Perlick

    What's the difference if any besides the price and if I had unlimited money, which one would you choose? I plan on buying 4 for now and another in the future. I really tried to find a thread that had this being discussed. I know most of you use Ventmatics, so try to stay unbiased. Thanks...
