    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    Looking for a little help with this recipe. I brewed the original version a couple of years ago. I've been rereading this thread and was about to brew it again adding Vienna to the bill. Just went to my lhbs and they were almost out of flaked corn, had just shy of 0.5 lb. I bumped up the amount...

    Keezer problem - not cooling

    Yeah, finding black is not easy. It looks like my Kenmore (a few years old) was 18702 and I replaced it with Frigidaire FFFC07M1QW. They are exact matches. Good luck.

    Keezer problem - not cooling

    I just recently had the same issue with a Kenmore (Sears) chest freezer that was about 3 years old. I installed the "hard start" kit from Amazon and that didn't help. The compressor ran continuously it just wouldn't cool down. I was pretty bummed that I might have to rebuild my entire collar...

    Possible dead freezer-Reusing collar?

    So I finally finished my kezzer build late last year. (I modeled it after GrainToGlass's build and posted mine in his build thread https://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=515869&page=3 ). We recently moved across the county and used a moving service. The keezer seemed to arrive...

    Ferm Chamber cooling question

    So I think maybe the freezer itself isn't working correctly. After a few days the temperature still wasn't dropping so I took everything out of the freezer, unhooked it from the temp controller and it just plugged it up as a stand alone freezer. After running for 24 hours the temp inside the...

    Ferm Chamber cooling question

    Just for clarification I'm not currently using it as a keezer, strictly as a fermentation chamber. But I did not pre-chill the chamber before I put the fermenters in there. That makes total sense but didn't occur to me at the time.

    Ferm Chamber cooling question

    I recently moved to a much warmer climate leaving behind a house with a basement perfect for fermentation. The new place has no basement so a ferm chamber is in my future. To get me through I brewed a couple batches and am using my currently empty keezer as a ferm chamber. Its a 7.2 cu. ft...

    Just moved to Dallas area

    Hey guys! My wife and I are in the process of moving from Kentucky to the Dallas, TX area (following a job). We are currently in a temporary corporate apartment in Plano while we house hunt. My wife's office will be in Plano so we will likely end up somewhere between there and Dallas (if we can...

    My Keezer is done!

    I don't have the info in front of me, I'm in the process of moving across the country. Terrifyingly, my keezer is about to be moved and stored by a moving company for what looks like at least month. I'm not excited about it. I actually built the base several months before I finished the rest...

    Show us your Kegerator

    Finally got around to finishing mine. I lost track long ago how much time and money I have in this keezer but I love it. 7.2 cu ft, can fit 4, 5 gal. cronies on the floor. I have to give a special thanks to user "GrainToGlass" whose build I modeled mine after and who answered the numerous...
