Makes sense.  Thanks, Brad!

Going to be brewing up some "Grapefruit IPA" this weekend!

P.S. - Sorry I missed your last post Christopher. How did your reindeer spit turn out this year?

Comment by Brad on February 26, 2016 at 3:06pm


The best idea I can come up with is to use a large collapsable plastic jug. (Boxed wine)  Unfortunately, you need to keep the wine under an inert atmosphere to prevent oxidation so once you tap the keg time is against you.  A container with flexible sides would allow you to replace the displaced volume from the outside of the container instead of within as a pressurized keg needs to.

Does anyone know... is there a way to throw wine in a keg and pour it without using compressed air?  I hate washing and sanitizing bottles and would like to avoid it if possible.

I just finished my annual "Reindeer Spit" this is one of my favorite times of year!

I just threw a batch of "Brickwarmer Holiday Amber Ale" into the fermenter last night.  Hoping to have a nice batch in time for the family Christmas party!

I've been brewing beer for a few months now. I am thinking about doing a cider. Any words of wisdom?
Comment by Gentleman Engineer on April 14, 2015 at 1:34pm

I have undertaken brewing previously. However, of late my intentions do stray towards that of meads.

What is your expected ABV?
Comment by Dakota Caraway on March 18, 2015 at 11:30pm

Made three, one gallon batches of mead using two different honeys and two different methods.  Here goes nothing!  Racking will be done 2-3 weeks from now. Hopefully I'll have some glass gallon jugs ordered and ready until then.

How to negotiate a higher salary?

From my previous post, I mentioned that I am currently a temp for a corporation. This past week my boss said they want me in for a permanent position. It looks like I'll be getting hired as a permanent employee. I would greatly want a higher salary though. As a temp I'm getting $20/hr without the benefits. The employees who currently work there started off as temps. I asked around and they said their hourly rate went up when they became permanent employees.My question is, how reasonable of an…See More
