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

ZP,

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.

Thanks!

Vendetta,

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.

Comment by Christopher Kaffer on March 18, 2015 at 11:37pm
Nice!!

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.

"I love the taste of hoppy IPAs, but they're neither anything special nor all that different from each other, just like fine wine vs. box wine. The connoisseurs are faking it. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid sucked. "
