2nd LBK

Recommended Posts

I just ordered a 2nd LBK! I am excited to get more brewing done and I am especially excited to start buying some 5 gallon recipes I have been looking at online and splitting them between the 2. That is all.

With 2 LBKs I've been making different beers in each, and the variety is nice, but it's surprising how quickly 8 liters of a really good beer can go away. It's great that you're having a good time with it, I know I am!

This is exactly why I NEED to brew more lol! I am hoping to brew as much as I can before summer. I am also hoping to get a 5 gallon set up sometime in the near future but I am trying to keep costs down as much as I can because SWMBO is getting on my case ;)

Good deal Deejay, that will help you getting some beers ahead in the pipeline, But the magic number on LBK's seems to be 3. It works good with the 3 week fermenting schedule, and when and if you want to split 5 gal batches it leaves one open to do a MB.
I have 4 LBK's but mostly do 5 gals in carboys, but I usually have a couple LBK's going most of the time also. Nothing wrong with having a spare or 2 LBK. You're on the right tract.

My second LBK arrived a week ago. I was very excited. I'm fermenting a hefe I brewed over the weekend. I have my other LBK cold crashing. It's really great to be able to keep them in rotation.

I think I can agree with berryman, having 3 LBKs would be near perfection.

Yeah I agree as well. Now that I think about it I should have ordered 2 :( At only 10 bux you can't go wrong and saving on shipping is nice too. My buddy has 3 and hes says he rarely uses them. He has 3 5 gallon carboys so he doesn't need them. I am trying to get him to sell me one but he keeps saying "maybe". Hopefully he will come around.
