  1. haven't brewed in a while. want to get back on track soon. just need to go get spring water and get going. I have 2 batches worth of ingredients sitting here at the house. NO EXCUSES!!!
  2. right. i think the solution is to use an airlock for cold crashing instead of the blowoff tube. I am using an airlock now, and although it makes it taller, the vodka stays in the airlock.
  3. what's the minimum cold crashing time? did a ton a dry hopping to a pale ale and looking to have it clarify a bit. put in the fridge tonight. can i keg/bottle tomorrow? or should i go 3 full days? impatient.
  4. no, i just had time to run over there today. raining here today. maybe tomorrow?
  5. going to the brew shop today. going after CO2 fillup and grain bill for an APA that I put together using my Veteran's Blend Hops that i bought from YCH.
  6. this is my local tap water report but it's from 2018. isn't that pretty much worthless being 2 yrs old now?
  7. ive read about water profiles etc....it's way over my head. i use Kroger spring water and it tastes good to me. someone on another forum basically told me that i was doing it all wrong by using spring water, because i don't know every detail about it and that I should use RO or distilled water and build a profile from there. go figure.
  8. yes, "Jdub in Texas" is extremely high society! i drink my shiner bock out of a diamond crusted crystal beer mug! LOL
  9. true. i started with brand new perlick faucets. will have to youtube how to take them apart. can't be that difficult to maintain them. i know that they pour great!
  10. well, i've only had my keezer up and running a couple of weeks, but I recognize it could get out of control quickly if i don't practice good habits. I have been drinking alot out of it though....lol
  11. ok @RickBeer you got me paranoid. just ran hot water through my faucets. i feel better now!
  12. ok, i can dispel the myths in one post. i bottle a lot from my kegs and give beer away. the key is to put your bottles into the fridge 1st. i sanitize them, and put a piece of sanitized foil on top of the opening. let it get fridge temp, and then turn down the pressure, pull the PRV and fill your bottles. just bottled a sixer for a friend yesterday and that worked like a charm.
  13. planning on brewing an APA in the morning. should be good weather. the only obstacle will be the wife and potential honey do's since i'm off tomorrow. #homebrewproblems
  14. newer pic of my keezer. ipa and stout on tap. blueberry wheat on the co2. haven't connected it to a tap yet. could fit a 4th keg in there and i will soon.
  15. @Big Sarge im going to buy a sanke tap and i can't wait. the breweries around me sell smaller kegs of great brew that could fit in my keezer. i'll have some craft commercial and home brew on tap!
