    [FREE] Several cases of 12oz bottles

    I recently moved to kegging and no longer need the stockpile of 12oz bottles that I had accumulated. They are free if you come over and pick them up. I have about 6 cases of cleaned bottles and a bunch that need cleaning that will go in the recycling if no-one wants them. Got to make space in...

    Outdoor Kitchen?

    Hot on the heels of the keezer - I'm thinking of building an outdoor kitchen. Nothing too mental, just a charcoal grill area, a sink, and a built-in cooler (no fridge). I'd like to run electric cable out to it also for lighting and tunes. Does anyone know of good places for info on the net? Or...

    Sanding a freezer - am I being stupid?

    Heh, I've just about finished the collar that will tranform a battered old chest freezer into a keezer, and because the collar turned out quite well, I'm wondering if I shouldn't sand down the freezer and repaint it. It's functional, but it's got bits of tape stuck to it and it's scratched up a...

    Faucets - Is the perlick worth the extra?

    Hi all, I'm looking to build a keezer and have a question about faucets - what's the deal with the perlick faucet? Why is it so much better than the basic standard ones that are half the price? I imagine that, as in many things, you get what you pay for, but in what way will the superior quality...

    Different serving pressures - worth it?

    Hi I am just putting together the equipment to build a kegerator - and I had a question about serving pressures - If I get a regulator with multiple gauges (i.e more than two) I can serve beers a different pressures - is that really worth the extra cash? I'm not planning to force carb, so I'd...

    Venting pressure during carbonation in a keg

    I've finally landed in the world of kegs, and I've gone with a portable set up and priming sugar to get carbonation into the beer. I think I measured it ok and racked into the keg etc, then gave it some CO2 to clear the headspace. My question is - do I use the pressure release thingy to vent...

    First AG Today - Lessons Learned

    Thought this might be of some use to someone else transitioning to AG. Did my first AG today (Edwort's Haus Pale Ale, natch), I've been doing PMs for nearly a year, but not doing much brewing since April/May. Apart from taking a bit longer than a PM this was no major difference (*) - but what I...

    Mendocino Brewing Company Pub - worth a visit?

    Hallo - we're in Russian River Valley on vacation and I noticed that the Mendocino Brew Pub is in Hopland - but it's getting a poor review from what I can find on the net. Has anyone been there?

    Pearled Barley sub for Flaked Barley

    Hi, I'm wanting to brew up some Dry Stout and my LHBS was out of Flaked Barley, but they said I could get barley from Wholefoods or whatever and just boil it for 20minutes, then add it to the mash as you would the flaked barley. They say this would gelatinize it and it would have the same...

    Two Turkey Fryers from one Propane Tank?

    What do I train my hop bines onto?

    Hi all, I've set up my hop garden with a central pole arrangement and I'm going to train the bines up to the pole from hop hills 10-12ft spaced out around the base. My question is, being even more of a novice in the garden than I am in the brewhouse, what to use for the lines up to the top of...

    Simple lager temp control

    hi, i'm looking to make an oktoberfest but don't have the fancy temp control options for the fermentation (lagering itself is not a problem) so i'm probably going to go the "fermentor in a big bucket full of water and ice" route. but i had a quick question - what temp should i be looking for for...
