    Mark II Keg Washer - Totally happy!!!

    I picked up a Blich Hoprocket for Christmas and decided I didn't want that extra deadspace in my system so I took it back and exchanged for a Keg Washer (and a 10th gram scale) and boy, I am really happy I did that. This thing is just great. I've had beer sitting on yeast for wayyy too long...

    Chiller for SS Brew Bucket ordered!

    Just ordered the chiller set up for my SS BB's. Unfortunately couldn't find the daisy-chain kit to add to my order. Might have to make one. Cost was pretty steep at $274 total. Hope it works well, though I know it will be a painting clean it. This will free up my beer fridge to be a cold...

    Size of grain bill limited by BK volume
