    what are the best carboy cleaners

    PBW or oxyclean soak with hot water over night and a quick swish with a carboy brush. Then rinse. I have the mark 2. The pump stopped working after about a month.

    Splitting a 5 gallon kit

    I'd say this is the easiest way to go. Also add a little flavoring at first. If it is not strong enough add a little more. Repeat this until it tastes right. Easier to add more than get too much out.

    Your life is over, you'll never brew again...... I'm just kidding (my little guy will be 2 in February) being a dad is great. I haven't brewed in 10 months, and that's OK. Life gets in the way. We moved, bought a house, priorities shift. I'm finally settling into things so I can brew a batch...

    Last year's Applejack

    It sat in secondary for about 4 months, then I froze it. Then aged on cinnamon and cloves for a month, then moved to bottles. It's been bootled for six months now.

    Last year's Applejack

    Started at 10% before freezing, and reduced 10 gallons to 5. Then aged with cinnamon and cloves for a month. It's a touch hot but mixed with a little fresh cider it's great!

    Hop garden pic & what is this

    Ok thanks for the info... Lots of lady bugs around the garden. Definitely have a good amount of spider webs too. I've notice the bottom foot or so of some of the hops look like that leaf. They all are really green and prolific up top though

    Cube fridge jockey box....maybe

    I attempted to do this myself, the coil idea was a fail. After the first pint or two, the coil had warmed and the pours became foamy. I switched to a cold plate and would leave that submerged in a bowl of ice that I filled prior to serving. This worked well until the ice would run out, which...

    Showing off

    Bottled my cherry dessert wine 1.120 OG and the FG is 1.020. Also bottled my dry white plum wine 1.099 OG and 1.000 FG. Both need more time to mellow but taste good. Cherry wine has much better flavor right now.

    Press is second hand so I don't know where it originally came from. I didn't time myself but the press pulled about a quart in five-ish minutes. So about 40 minutes to get you two gallons

    Last Straw bottle filler - need help!

    I can vouch for this method, I turn pressure down to about 2-5 psi and make sure the bottles are being filled below where the keg is sitting.
