    Need help getting my CO2 lines set up

    I got my 2 product regulator but it didn't come with any airline so off to the LHBS. Very dissappointed, they don't have the hardware to attach the airline to the regulator. How could this be? Looking on line I still don't see what I'm looking for. I would just like a few feet of air line with a...

    Is a 2 product regulator the way to go?

    I have a kegerator I just bought with two taps. I need a regulator. Should I go with a primary and secondary or a 2 product regulator? Any suggestions on makes and models?

    Another newbie with a kegerator

    My son in law's dad is putting all his kegging equipment up for sale after doing it for a couple years.

    What's on your brew Christmas list?

    I was circling some things in a brew catalog to drop some hints for the wife and other interested parties. 1. A convoluted counterflow chiller. I thought hard about a plate chiller, but I'm just not comfortable with the inability to really clean them. 2. Precise pocket scale. Measures to...

    OG for first runnings

    I'm wondering if there is a table for wort gravity relative to the ratio of water to grain in the mash when pulling out the first runnings. I'm curious as to what the limit for the gravity would be. I don't think you can go much less than a quart per pound or the mash is just too thick.
