    Not trying to sound arrogant but...

    Go AG... I did 1 extract and wanted to have more control on what my recipes would be like. Immediately after my 1st extract I started building my MLT, Keggle and Kegerator. I have only done 3 AG batches and they all turned out ok even for still being a NOOB... I would start watching some online...

    Leave CO2 Bottle Open or Closed

    I know different types of beer need different levels of pressure, but for the most part do most of you always leave your CO2 bottle open so its has a constant head pressure on your kegs. As long as the keg is sealed correctly it should retain that pressure correct? The one microbrewer locally...

    ESB Recipe - Need Input

    Exactly.... :) Feels like I just sat through a 2 day seminar all in 1 hour. I appreciate the suggestions, but since I have all the current ingredients for the original recipe, I would like to stick as close to it as possible without losing the ESB style as some of you mentioned... I will...

    Should I substitute anything for the Barley. Also should I use a whirlflock tablet with this recipe?

    ESB Recipe - Need Input

    My brewpot is a Keggle so it holds approx 15 gallons so I usually think my boil size is about 6 gallons... usually loose 1/2 gallon during the boil. My MLT is a 70 qt coleman cooler that I converted.

    ESB Recipe - Need Input

    thanks everyone so the 154 mash in temp sounds good? I have never done the iodine test, I am also going to have to reread my previous brews as I will have to figure out how much water I need at mashin and how much I need for sparge as it's been over 6 month since I brewed. I have Beer Tools...

    Yuengling- Who's tried it?

    Yuengling is my staple beer when it comes to my local bar since they try to keep the price of beer under $2.00 a bottle... On tap its only $1.00 per pint, so I can't argue there. Their Premium is not bad either which is a pilsner style, but not easily available here in Buffalo. My cousin lives...

    4912 External CO2

    hmm maybe if I put a small piece of wood under the the co2 it will clear the lip of the bottom edge of the door as I did take the bottom shelf off as well. Otherwise I could run a line from the co2 through the drain hole and connect it to the regulators inside the fridge. Thanks for the input.

    4912 External CO2

    Last week I finally was able to build my kegerator out of the Sanyo 4912M model. I must give props to all the tutorials and documentation the homebrewers have provided. As they all made the job very simple and less stressful knowing exactly what needed to be done and how to do it. Anyways, I...

    Coleman 62 qt Xtreme Wheeled Cooler <$20!

    From everything I have read online as long as you are batch sparging the bed depth is not that critical. And I will be moving to 10 gallon batches soon so I wanted to have enough room.

    Coleman 62 qt Xtreme Wheeled Cooler <$20!

    Everything is dry fitted (unsoldered) except for the tube that connects to the valve. That part is soldered to the threaded adapter. Hope that helps, but leaving them unsoldered as someone else said makes cleaning a snap!!

    Fementation Temp Question

    That should do it for you... Hope it works out.

    Fementation Temp Question

    Have you thought about putting the carboy in a tub or a container filled with water and an aquarium heater? This way you could keep a more consistent temp without spending a lot of money and not having to turn the heating pad on/off. I agree with everyone else, your batch should be fine.
