    Maryland Cleaning out the basement. Barley crusher, March pump, chillers, burner, buckets, etc

    As a once very active brewer and member of the community (hey I won the first ever HBT competition) it's will sadness and reluctance that I'm selling just about everything I have. Over the years various things have left me little time to brew so I'd rather see this stuff go to someone that will...

    Kegs, pot/burner, flask/stir plate, 1 gallon StarSan, and more equipment

    I'm in the process of cleaning out some unused equipment and reclaiming some basement space. All of the following has been used, but it's in great condition. Everything is for local sale only in the Baltimore/Washington DC area. I probably have even more than this and if you buy something for...

    10 Gallon Cooler False Bottoms

    After another stuck sparge this weekend I'm finally ready to call using a braid quits. I'm thinking about getting a false bottom, but want to know everyone's experience with the different variations in a standard, orange, round Rubbermaid 10 gallon cooler. Do you just use the 12" mesh that...

    Brew Stand Help

    With the current cash influx of a Christmas bonus I'm thinking about finally getting a brew stand and I'm trying to find something that will be easy to move in and out of the house. The bonus was big enough that the budget is just about unlimited and I might as well get something with burners if...

    Hose lengths

    I'm looking for some info on the length of hose that people have used for a single tier system. I already got all the disconnects and have 10' of 1/2" silicone hose and 2' of 3/8" hose. Now I need to cut up the hose, but at $2/ft I'd rather cut once :) I need to make a portable system so the...

    Roeselare Blend Is Back!

    Yesterday I sent an email to Wyeast asking them when #3763 Roeselare Blend was going to be back as a VSS. I also dropped a tidbit that I heard about them making it a full time straing. Here's what I got back: WOO HOO! So get your Flanders ready to roll!

    Siphoning into a corny - The Reverse BMBF

    I had a moment of genius today. One of those things that when you think of it you wonder why it didn't hit you sooner. I was getting ready to keg a beer and went to siphon some StarSan into the keg when I realized I had thrown away my hose list time I kegged a beer. It was starting to get nasty...

    Smooth bittering: FWH or All Late Additions?

    I'm working on my next recipe. It's going to be an American Amber using Nugget and Williamette as the hops. I'm looking for a nice smooth bittering targeting a BU/GU of around 0.70. There seems to be two competing methods to achieve this. The first is first wart hopping and the other is to late...

    Stop raining!

    I usually just deal with what mother nature dishes out, but this is getting ridiculous. I swear it's rained every other day this summer. At least I have an excuse not to cut the grass this weekend.

    Thoughts on kegerator in a garage

    I'm finally going to put a tower on my Sanyo 4912 this weekend and I'm looking for peoples thoughts on keeping it in the garage. I've had it out there for about a year now while I just use cobra taps and it's been OK. I'm not sure if it'll get too hot with the tower on it and make the beer...

    Just wanted to start off by saying I'm mechanically inclined, but have no idea when it comes to screw sizes. The screw fell out that holds my door lock in the door. I searched and searched inside the door but couldn't find the damn thing. Problem is I have no idea what size to replace it...

    Ommegang's Ommegeddon

    A few months ago I found a bottle of Ommegeddon at my source of fine ales. Knowing that this was getting to be a tough beer to find I grabbed the bottle and headed for the cashier. I finally decided that today, the wonderful spring evening, would be a great time to crack this one. The bottle was...
