    Filtering.... Just saw this little toy...Anyone use one? topic a bit, but here goes anyway. I use a 1 micron filter only and get a fairly clear beer (usually). Would there be a benefit from me putting inline progressively smaller mesh filter media? Sean

    Outstanding Questions

    1. The bucket will be fine as long as it is clean and sanitary. It isnt in contact with the bucket that long. RDWHAHB 2. Your problem may be the beers didnt go the full length of fermentation. A lot of folks dont wait until the fermentation is completely done. It is better to wait rather...

    I got 7 and am always keg poor. Get as many as you can get and growl at anyone that tries to take them away from you.

    My attempt at a single tier brew sculpture
