    Houston Group Grain Buy #2

    That is really strange - never heard of a place that wouldn't accept a regular old visa, regardless of the name. Would they take a bank check, or wire transfer from a bank?

    WTB: Stainless Stout Faucet

    I have that Perlick and it is great, but a stout faucet it isn't. I too am looking for a stout faucet to go with N2. So far it is tough to find the all stainless ones. If you see one that says stainless then look at the fine print, it is often just the stem and restrictor plate. Or if they...

    50A 3P 4W Grounding Plug and Recpt.

    That's a great find! I just finished my electric brewery (it hasn't received the final test yet) and I had to go to home depot to find this kind of plug. I couldn't find the twist lock style anywhere that could handle 50 amps. Best I could find was 30.

    Houston Group Grain Buy #2

    Schaez, Have you had any luck with Country Malt? Did the work around work, or are you just up to your neck with work stuff - I know what that is like. I do have a DBA, but not a separate tax ID, don't know if that would help or not. The electric brewery is pretty much done, just the...

    Houston, TX Group Buy

    It looks like we're getting close to another pallet's worth of grain. I'll take 4 sacks or so. I have a truck and garage space to store if that helps.

    I've placed several orders here. Always a great experience. The shipping has been lightning fast - even around the holidays. Good pricing and good shipping is worth a lot. Haven't had to return anything yet, so I don't know about customer service, but based on what I've seen so far, I...

    4500 or 5500w element?

    +1 to this. I just picked up 2 5500W units yesterday. They were a buck or two cheaper than the 4500W for some reason. They are the straight incoloy, not the wavy ones, but they fit wonderfully into a keggle

    Trade 2 Pin Lock Kegs for 1 Ball Lock (TX)

    I have two pin-lock kegs and would like trade someone for 1 ball-lock keg. I'd rather trade with someone than do the conversion myself. I like the form factor of the ball lock better - so my fastidiousness is your gain!! Would rather trade locally instead of trying to ship - Houston, TX

    How to restore an old corny?

    First, I'd clean the outside of the keg a bit - wash off any dust, gunk, cobwebs, etc. Then press down on the 'gas in' side of the keg. Wear glasses and press down on the little metal poppet on the gas side and you should hear a hissing sound, releasing the CO2. Then you can open up the keg...

    Converting Pin-lock to Ball-Lock

    I recently got two pin lock kegs from my neighbor - very nice of him. Of course, all my stuff is ball lock. I either need to convert them over, or trade for some ball locks. I know ball locks are a bit more of a premium so I'd trade 2 for 1. Anyone in/around Houston up for a swap? I know...

    Diy jockey box questions

    I just put the finishing touches on my jockey box. Before I put the SS coils showed up, I had a BBQ cookoff to go to. We got a keg of Shiner (don't have any homebrewed stuff yet). We kept the keg on ice and just used ~20ft of 3/16" beer line (plastic) in the jockey box and kept it covered...
