    Upright keezer build

    Here are a few pictures of my keezer build, thanks for the inspiration JonW. I was going to get the same freezer that Jon used but, I was able to find this Kenmore elite floor model for $850. I spent more so I would be able to be in our dining room. The result was better than expected, it looks...

    Year old hops, still good?

    I got a lb of cascade pellet hops last summer and I weighted them out, put them in little zip top bags, and stored them in the freezer. I opened a bag up tonight and noticed a little funky smell (not overwhelming) and the normal hop smell. I know if they turn brown and/or smell like stinky...

    Need some help with hop garden

    I am in need of a more permanent hop garden and need a little advice. I was thinking of putting four 12'-14' - 4"x4" posts and making an "archway" of sorts. I can not do anything super hard to remove, since one half of the archway will be on the regulating districts land. I am going to put wire...

    I have a question for the more voltage savvy members. At my parent's house in upstate NY we lose power a lot. My parent's bought a generator at a military auction and got a 60,000 kilawatt generator and built an incloser for it. There is no automatic turn on for it so we turn it on when we lose...

    Immersion Chiller

    I have a 30 foot immersion brewVint chiller but now I am doing 10 gallon batches. I think it's going to be a slow cool down, should I either get a larger chiller, if so how big, or should I get a pre-chiller? I am a little strapped for cash since I just got my all grain set up and a barley crusher.

I want to do this b/c i need a place to leave my fermenters and it looks like my dads...

    Order not shipped

    How long do you guys wait before contacting a company asking when your order will be shipped? It's been a week, this is the longest I have had to wait, especially with this company, they are always quick. I ordered two kits and some random things. So, should I give them more time or give them a...

    Keg conversion

    I guess I am not going to do this myself, but I am going to have my 1/2 barrel kegs converted into keggles. I am not very handy, aside from building computers, I just built a stir plate and I think that is the extent of my capability. So I am having a guy covert my kegs for me. I am wondering if...

    Bottling - Priming Sugar

    It is the first time I am bottling beer with my friend. I normally keg so I don't worry about priming sugar. It's been over an hour since I added the priming sugar to the bottling bucket and the beer to that. What I am concerned about is there going to be enough sugar to carb the beer? Do you...

    Keg Most bottle a few

    Hey everyone, I am getting back into brewing and I have a question. Is there anyway I can bottle a six pack of my homebrew and keep the rest in a keg. Is there a liquid priming sugar product that you only have to use a drop or two in the bottle then fill up the bottle with beer? I have some...

    Pin lock keg help

    I got 2 coke kegs off of CL last week and they have not been used in years (~8), the guy told me. I was trying to get the posts off one of them and they wouldn't move. I was using a wrench which is a little tricky with the pins. My friend gave it a go and broke one of the pins off the liquid...

    Full boil or 3 gallon

    I recently got a 8 gallon Polarware SS pot off of CL, so now i can do full boils. I am brewing a Newcastle clone from MHS, extract with specialty grains. Should I go with ~6 gallon boil, instead of the 3 gallon that the kit calls for. The main thing I am concerned about is cooling the wort, I...
