    how strong is 1/8" plexi-glass?

    I am looking to build a fermentation chamber and found a really good deal on this. I was going to use this acrylic (plexi-glass) as the inside bottom over my insulation board so that it would be easy to clean up any spills. I found this used sheet for 10% of what 1/4" would cost. The chamber is...

    How much does 2000lbs of grain cost?

    Ok, I meant for 2 row. And where I get it from? The cheapest place, like LHBS do. It must be below 70cents too. I can get it for 60cents from my LHBS.

    Using a step bit

    So, I am trying to drill a hole in my keg with a step bit. These are the $10 step bits from harbor freight. The first 3 steps went fine, but now I am at about 1/2 inch and it doesnt cut. It just spins and smoke (thats when I stop). Is there a trick to using these bits?

    Price for Keggle?

    Willynilly, You are right. The distributor does not own anything. The Breweries own the kegs, so these distributors are selling something they dont own. The distributor probably pays the brewery a $30 deposit fee, maybe less. That is why the distributor does not care if they get the keg back...

    should I buy a stainless steel or copper wort chiller?

    I want to buy a wort chiller (immerson), what is the best to go with? I know that a steel one is stronger, but a copper chills better. How much better does copper chill? I want to chill 10 gallons, and looking to brew once or twice a week. (Sharing the equipment with people.)

    Ball valves for gas

    So, I am going to plumb my brew rig with some black iron pipe. Is there a special ball valve for gas, or will the brass ones that people use on the brew pot work fine? This will be high pressure propane.
