    Kegerator And Kegs For Sale Phoenix, AZ

    I recently purchased an old project kegerator and some kegs that I am looking to get rid of. I am not going to have the space or time to have these around. The kegerator runs and gets cool but needs a replacement fan inside and possibly a recharge on the freon side as well. The tubing needs to...

    What kind of keg?

    One of the local scrap yards down the street from my office has some interesting kegs. One batch look like 3 gallon, polished, stainless, corny kegs with a set of protective stainless rings at the top to protect the connectors. The other group of kegs look like standard stainless kegs about 4...

    Mesquite Pods For Brewing Or Flour

    So I have access to a few different varieties of mesquite with varying colors of pods that I am going to start harvesting next week. I will plan on getting 2 pound batches for people since that seems to be a decent amount of pods to do a nice batch of beer. If anyone is interested in a trade...

    Preparing Some Fruit For Addition To Fermentation

    If this is the wrong forum please advise where I should post it or a moderator can move. I have some apricots that I harvested yesterday that have probably had fruit flies visit here and there. I am planning on slicing, pitting and then blanching them for 10 minutes. They will then be...

    Vintage Apple Press/Grinder - Not Mine

    From Phoenix area Craigslist - This is a Happy Valley Cider Press. Since the 1980's they no longer make the 3 legged style. It is the American Harvester style. My husband bought it new and I know it has not been used for at least 20...

    Question About Mashing Oatmeal For A Stout

    I'm brewing an extract stout this weekend that I want to get some oatmeal into. If I do a mash of the oatmeal to get a wort started for the rest of the extract recipe, will special roast, kiln amber or chocolate malts give me enough starches to do the conversion? Thanks in advance for any...

    What Happened To My Ferment Here?

    Three weekes ago I did this recipe with a 3.5 gal boil and topped up to 5 gal after cooling to 80 and aereating the heck out of it with a paint stirrer on a drill. It bubbled away at 68 - 70 degrees in a water bath for 12 days and has sat for another week and a half at the same. I didn't do an...

    Cheap Store Brand Oxyclean Left Film On Bottles

    So I bought Frys/Krogers oxygen cleaner thinking that it would be a good, cheaper alternative to Oxyclean. It is but is leaves a white film on the outside and the inside of the bottles. I think that a Starsan soak and brushing might help fix this but am looking for any other recommendations...

    3 Year Old Brett Dregs

    I've recently harvested the dregs from a 2008 Boulevard Saison Brett that I would like to try to use. What are te chances that I have viable yeast in there? Should I just pitch it into a starter and see if I get any action to see? I've got a honey wheat wine that I want to turn it loose in...

    Too Much Potassium Sorbate

    So in a stupid move I put way too much potassium sorbate into a 4 gallon batch. 4 teaspoons instead of 1. Is there anything that can be done with it besides blending it with 20 gallons of un-sorbated mead? Thanks, GTG

    Foamy Tupelo

    Day before yesterday I started a 4 gallon batch of mead with a gallon of tupelo honey, energizer, nutrient and added a cup of white raisins about 12 hours into primary. I haven't seen a batch krausen up and get so foamy like that before. I thought I was going to have an MEA in there without...

    Pyment Information Wanted

    I picked a bunch of white grapes this morning and want to make a pyment. Should I freeze then squeeze to try to juice the grapes or should I just freeze and then mash then put in grapes whole into my fermenter? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, GTG
