I usually mill by hand (although I will occasionally bust out the drill). To pass the time, I count the number of revolutions.
one fermentation bucket, a plastic carboy, and a bottling bucket (with a spigot).
sounds to me like you can start at least two beers
and I would recommend it as well, homebrew goes fast!
how would i do two beers? wouldn't my first ferment always be in the bucket or would I just do a first fermentation in the carboy?
When I brewed this Saturday it occurred to me how lucky I am that our kitchen is old so it didn't matter that I dripped some undiluted Starsan on the counter or banged it with a kettle that I was cleaning. The old laminate looks just like it did before I brewed. That said, I'm sure at some point my wife would like to make a change so I'd better start thinking about it.
What type of countertops do you have and how are they holding up? Heard of any disaster stories?
Picnic tap? You probably shouldn't trust those to hold force carbonating pressures. That's too bad.
FWIW, I use nothing but picnic taps and force carb and there's never been a problem.
+1, except once when the tap had a hairline crack. That was thankfully quite minor ( < 1 pint)
