    i've been reading a crap ton on electric brewing over the last week. lot's of information! i've seen people build a box, control center if you will, that holds the pid, and the ssr, usually a couple switches to be able to completely cut the power to the elements if needed. also looks like a...

    i was making my keggle today, and tightened my weldless blichmann thermometer too tight, and the orange rubber o-ring got smashed, and broke, so of course it leaked. i went to menards, and they didn't have any temperature ratings on their o-rings. i just got a black #10 o ring, which fit...

    single tier brew sculpture questions

    i'm really tired of lugging around, lifting hot water, heavy mash tuns full of grain up in the air, etc. and want to build myself some sort of brew sculpture. at first i was thinking a three tier gravity fed system, but i don't like the idea of an HLT way up in the air, for safety reasons...

    anybody ever make a dark/black ipa?

    i know that the word "dark" and "pale" don't really go together, so maybe this is a style that already exists under another name, and i'm just not familiar with it. what i'm curious about, as dumb as it may seem, is making a beer that looks like a java stout, as far as the color, like really...

    I'm having abig party tomorrow, and have about 25 lbs of pork shoulder to cook. I've never cooked that much at once before, would it be ok if I just boiled the shoulders for awhile first, and only smoke them afterwards for a couple hours for flavor? I don't want them to be tough, I plan on...

    why do i need a co2 manifold?

    just curious. my old kegerator i had three kegs in it, and all i did was use stainless steel "T" fittings, to split the one co2 line from the tank to the three kegs. i used that for quite awhile, and never had any issues. now my new set up will have five kegs, and i'm thinking of doing the same...

    glycol runs-flexible copper lines, or vinyl lines?

    in my bar set up, i'll have about 5ft or so between the kegs and the faucets. i don't want to have to tear apart my whole rig because the beer lines are getting warm, so i want to do it right the first time. i'm thinking i'll do the whole d.i.y. pond pump in a corny keg or bucket inside the...
