    Show Me Your Wood Brew Sculpture/Rig

    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas, on how to fireproof the burner chamber on the left. I want to go electric with it one day, but for now, it's going to be propane fired. So i need to line the chamber with something, and I am going through different ideas, and none that seem good. And...

    Show Me Your Wood Brew Sculpture/Rig

    I wanted it to be all in one, so the mill had to be there, with a place for a bucket. The right switch controls the mill. Which right now, is just a milwaulkee drill with the trigger pulled about 1/4 of the way. But it works great.

    Well it's been about a year since I moved in with my in-laws, and the brewing has ceased to exist. Well I just couldn't take it anymore. Last week I brewed a extract batch, that's currently in the fermenter, I cleaned up and tweaked my kegerator, and then Thursday I realized I was missing...

    Tight Scew on regulator!!

    Sorry I have not been on here in a while, moving back in with the inlaws put a stop to my homebrewing. But I can't take it any more, so I started getting things back together, when I realized the screw on the regulator would not screw in and out. I bought it from Austin Homebrew about a year...

    Swmbo thinks this will be better.

    Well, over the last few months things have gotten worse. The money issue has gotten worse. I make decent money, and swmbo makes aight money, but things have been going down hill for a while now. We don't own luckily just rent and the landlord really likes us, that's why we get a steal on our...

    Boiling equipment for yeast starters question

    Well, the point is to boil the wort in the flask/beaker. That way you sanitize them both at the same time....Just my honest opinion.

    I enjoy home brewing so much that......

    OxyClean delableing solution got on the inside of one of my bottles!

    I use the generic "sun oxygen cleaner" from dollar general. Seems to work great for me. I soak everything in it, bottles, kegs, cat, spoons, etc. Even my aluminum hlt once. Wow did that thing oxidize fast. It took hours with a brillo pad, to make that thing shine again..................

    Hops bag options

    For cleaning the bags out, I might be crazy, but right after the brewing, i shake the majority of the hops out, and then I sit them somewhere to completely dry out over night. The next day, I just rub it together and the hops just crumble away. And then I just rinse sanitize and put in a...

    Cheap Fermenting vessels?

    Oh and don't get me wrong, I still use 6.5 gallon ale pails for my primaries, use the water bottles just for secondary aging.

    Cheap Fermenting vessels?

    You know I have been using the exact same primo bottles in the amazon ad, for a long time now, and have not noticed any off flavors, nor had I experienced any problems. Not that I am saying this is the proper thing to use, just that I have not had any problems with them. That is only my opinion.

    Broken Hydrometer - Can I test the carbed beer later?

    But ain't the hole point of taking a fg reading, to make sure that the beer is ready to bottle. Cause if you don't take the reading, you would not know if it is done fermenting. Then you rerouse the yeast when you rack, and then get bottle bombs. Get on me if I am wrong in thinking this. And...

    Let's Talk GPS Units!

    I have a tom tom one, I've had for years. Love it, but I am not knocking the Garmins at all. But when I bought my tom tom it was $300 Dollars, when the closest comparable Garmin was still $380. You know money talks... But there map is sometimes lacking.
