    Thermostat Relocation

    I'm doing a keggerator conversion on a Frigidaire mini-fridge right now and need to know how to relocate the thermostat. I want to fit two 5 gallon kegs in the fridge but they won't fit without moving the temp control. Is there a step by step thread on here regarding this? Thanks for any input.

    What happened??

    I recently brewed the Gold Seal Blonde Ale kit from Austin Homebrew Supply. Its been in the bottle for 2.5 weeks so I tried one tonight. It was really bad. It has an extremely strong alcohol taste. I just don't know where I went wrong... I hope it gets better with time.

    Is it to early to start Kegging?

    I started brewing beer about a month ago and only have three partial boil extracts under my belt. I have a mini refrigerator and Im thinking about converting it to a kegerator. Is it too early to start kegging my beer? Should I wait till later on down the road when I move into AG?

    Tastes Bitter... What do I do?

    I took my first hydrometer reading tonight after 4 days of fermentation. I was unable to take a reading after I brewed because it had not come in the mail yet. After I took the reading, which was 1.007, I tried the beer and it tasted very bitter. Will this bitter taste even out or will the...
