    Belgian Bottles, corked and caged vs capped

    Wow those bottles look perfect, no way I could order that many at once though. I have never ordered from them, but I see these guys mentioned in other threads where people are looking for lots of corks and cages http://www.weekendbrewer.com/corksequipment.htm#Belgian%20Bottle%20Cork I ordered...

    It was a big surprise for sure. I had mentioned to family members that I was looking to buy a grain mill soon.

    Grain Gobbler advice?

    I was just given the Grain Gobbler with stainless hopper from morebeer as a gift! The reviews for this mill are a bit mixed. Does anyone have one? I am particularly concerned about connecting it to a power drill. One reviewer said he stripped the threads fairly quickly. I would love to...

    Online printed source for thin, long labels to go over cap?

    I want to make some thin strip labels like Pretty Things uses over their caps. I don't own a printer, so ideally this would be something I can have printed for me. All I can find are more rectangular labels around 1"x3.5", these are more like 0.75"x6". I suppose I would settle for 1.5"x6"...

    Naturally carbonate 3gal in 5gal keg

    Just purge with extra co2 when you rack your beer. 3 gallons in a 5 gallon carboy is fine.

    First Keezer Build

    I bought one of these off craigslist a while back. I ended up selling it since I couldn't figure out how to safely bend the shelves with the tubing in there. How do you plan to bend them?

    my long awaited build, and a question

    Looks really nice, this is very close to what I hope to build soon, especially the stand. I haven't been in the electric brewing scene for long, but I know that your plugs should definitely *not* be female on the kettle side. This means you are plugging in a live male plug with more than...

    Help building electric HLT in NH

    Hey everyone, I have been asking around trying to find someone in the central NH (Concord/Manchester) area to help me convert a rubber covered sanke keg that I have into an electric HLT without success. I don't have access to the tools or expertise to do it myself. I just need help with the...

    Help building my electic HLT?

    Yes that is my current plan, turn it upside down and find a way to attach a stainless ball valve. I have the sanke fermenter kit from Brewers Hardware which will give me at least the tri clover clamp that I need. Then I need to find a NPT which will take a ball valve, which I think would be...

    Help building my electic HLT?

    Good to know. How can you tell from the picture? I will be sure to check the gauge of wire before buying an element or installing a new outlet.

    Help building my electic HLT?

    Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I'm going to start with a 2000W 120V element as you suggested, and if that doesn't do the job fast enough, add another. I have another GFCI outlet on a different circuit just as close if needed.

    Help building my electic HLT?

    This is an outlet in my kitchen about 10 feet from my porch where I'll be brewing. My panel shows it is 20A: Is this a GFCI outlet? Is this outlet safe as is? What heating element would be compatible? Since I'll only be using electric for my HLT and not full boils, I'm hoping I can get...

    Help building my electic HLT?

    You're right! I searched a bit before and didn't find anything, but after some advanced google-fu I did find a couple examples: https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/rubber-coated-kegs-235345/index2.html#post5092450 http://www.buttcrackbrewery.com/2012/02/25/insulated-kegmash-tun/ This is...

    Help building my electic HLT?

    I think I'll ask my LHBS, I bet they will know who could help with the cutting. I guess my first order of business will be to remove the rubber/plastic on the top, since all of that will need to be removed for the top. Then I should have a good idea of how to cut the other areas.

    Help building my electic HLT?

    Greetings! I have had this plastic (rubber?) covered keg in my possession for a few years: A while back I removed the spear and used it to ferment 10 gallon batches, which worked fine, but I realized I'd rather use it as an electric HLT if possible. Has anyone worked with a keg like...
