    Sanke Replacement Parts

    During my fall keezer cleaning I noticed that the ball retainer in my sanke coupler was broken. Any one know a place that won't charge me $13+ for shipping on this $3 part? Been looking for about a week now and everyone that carries it wants insane shipping costs. your pal THE CAD

    Medieval Burnt Mead!

    I have survived the brew and have to admit it was probably the most interesting thing I've ever made. "Magma Honey" is an understatement. The honey boils and plumes like volcanoes seen on National Geographic, spewing molten honey several feet at random. I was foolish enough to do this in...

    Medieval Burnt Mead!

    I'm gonna try this today, since i'm off and the wife is at work. Gonna be using about 12lbs of honey and hopefully turning it into a 3 gal batch. I will be making it outdoors so i gain the challenge of fighting off attacking bees. While the wife is away, THE CAD will play. If i do not...

    Medieval Burnt Mead!

    thanks for the reply. I'm currently engaged in a epic battle with the wasps, but have seen few actual honey bees.

    Medieval Burnt Mead!

    going to be trying this soon. How hard is to clean the brew pot after burning the honey? Is it doable or should I try to find a cheap one and just toss it after i'm done?

    What am I missing?

    i do have a line for the manifold already. My current system is a picnic set up (co2 tank, regulator, keg, picnic tap that sits in a chest freezer with a plug in temp regulator) I prefer the threaded fittings, no real reason, just what i like

    Ferment Restart after 18months

    Had the same thing happen to me last summer. Mead was well over a year old and was shooting corks across my basement a few months after bottling. Started check the gravity again and it was still going down. About 9 months later if finally leveled off (hopefully for real this time). My FG...

    Where does this go?

    Thanks for the help. I'll get more CO2 monday and spray the entire thing down with star stan. Then see what bubbles up. Your pal THE CAD

    Where does this go?

    The set up is 5lb CO2 bottle to a single dial reg to a single keg to a picnic tap.

    Where does this go?

    so it should go between the CO2 line and the gas in for the keg? There is no manifold at this point. I found the bottle to reg oring ( that was my first CO2 tank :o).

    Where does this go?

    Put to gether my keg set up from the LHBS with the very poor directions provided and had orings left over. Figured out where all of them go except for one. I've gone through 2 CO2 so far in my quest for on tap beer. I have no idea where this goes but I'm almost certain it is the cause of my...

    Smart person question

    The school I'm looking at requires one of the tests if your undergrad GPA is under 3.0. Mine was a 2.8 and is from 10 years ago. I'm looking at the school mostly because of location, scheduling and my employer gets a 20% discount. I'm not really concerned with getting a job right away. My...

    Smart person question

    hmmm, I hate logic. It's up there with common sense, sobriety and rational behavior, things I am strongly against.

    Smart person question

    I am looking at an MBA because going further in my field would be a waste of time and resources. I plan on at least getting some practice books and brushing up on everything prior to the test date.
