    (bottle conditioned)Bottling with a beer gun?

    I was thinking to myself the other day that I could add priming sugar to a keg, siphon beer into keg, and then using CO2, gently push the beer into bottles with my Blichmann beer gun. Am I missing any reason why this wouldn't work? It just seems easier than a bottling wand (that I'd have to go...

    National Homebrew Day San Diego

    I just wanted to say I'm going to have people over to my house for National Homebrew Day. I'll be brewing, I'm inviting people who want to brew to bring equipment if they'd like, and other than that it'd be fun to have a get together. Since it is my house, I hold discretion of who I will...

    Showing off my new kegerator!

    First picture is a little dark. The stripe on there is dark brown, and it is chalkboard paint, so I can mark what is in the thing. I love it.

    How do I make this shelf more sturdy?

    It bows in the middle from front to back because I don't think it was made to hold as many bottles as I want it to hold. Thoughts?

    I was at a small hop field here in town yesterday, and I took a couple of nice pictures, and I wanted to show them off. I'm going to post them as links because they're massive and I don't want to make them smaller. I like them big. :)...

    Broke my Blichmann thermometer AND a carboy today...

    But I still made beer! I somehow snapped the probe end off my thermometer, and it was hot enough in my driveway today to break a carboy just by splashing water on it. Thankfully it was empty and I have 3 backups. But when all was said and done, I made a very pretty beer that will at some...

    I'm Going to Beer Camp!

    I just got an email notification saying I'm a finalist and they just needed age verification and acknowledgement of the rules to declare me a winner. I'm so excited and will probably take all the same pictures from Sierra Nevada that everyone else does. I'm so excited!

    I'm kind of a big deal... That guy who won best in show... That's me. :) 2nd in IPA and English Brown and an honorable mention (first loser!) in veg/herb/spice. Good enough.

    My Sierra Nevada Beer Camp video

    So Sierra Nevada is running a competition to go to Beer Camp, and I made a video. The cut that was sent to them had to be 2:00, but I like this one. It is 5:30, but I think it is much more fun. XpycE-yge2k&vq

    Kegged and carbing!

    I just kegged and am carbing 10 gallons of blonde and 5 of IPA, I have carbed up my biere de garde and my berliner weisse, and I am also carbing up an ESB, Southern English Brown, and an American Brown. The only beer with issues is the American Brown which is way overhopped, and I'm thinking I...

    Beer tonight and tomorrow!

    Mexican food is tonight. I know the traditional thing to do is Corona or some light lager, but I'm going with two beers. Alesmith Horny Devil. It is about 2 years old, so I am sure it'll be interesting. I will also open Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza, which I think should be perfect with...

    I have a brewery wide brett infection

    And I'm kind of sad that I want to wipe it out. I just tasted a beer I made a few months ago and it is super bretty, well on its way to sour and I really, really like it. I've already thrown away all my plastic, and the rest will be washed thoroughly, but I really do love the taste. This is...
