Equipment and Software / Re: Kegerator Thoughts

I bought an one-tap retail unit from my supervisor at my old job. It's meant for one half keg but I can fit two 1/6 bbl in it.

My opinion is do a custom job if you need more room- convert a chest freezer or buy a big upright fridge and have taps in the door...

Alton Brown grilled undressed pizza dough flipping once then adding toppings once flipped. IIRC... ;D



With a stone I ran into the same problem as pete describes. Burnt bottom undercooked top.

Once baked(?) a thawed frozen pizza (DiGiorno) at 375* on the grate in the BGE that turned out evenly cooked for some reason.

I want to build a wood fired oven!

Thanks!

How are you planning to rack out the bottom fermenter?

That's sweet.  Just for reference, how big are those fermenters?  Could you fit a carboy or betterbottle in those fridges?

The buckets are 20.5" H x 12.5" W  , looks like you have about 6" to the bottom of the freezer...if that helps?

Is that 12.5" at the lid on or at the base? Looks like the vessel flares.

So this is a "special" lid with a lid for the Weber that holds the stone? Interesting though pricy.

Very nice! A coworker is giving me his nice komodo kamado ceramic grill, and I can't wait to grill pizzas in it.

+ 10 That is one serious score. If you haven't already you should price them online...

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Beer soap?

You gotta be careful putting organic material in your soap such as leaves or fruit or the like. It can get moldy as previously mentioned.

I haven't had this problem using oatmeal or dried basil flowers for their scrubbing properties, but I keep the amounts fairly low.

Used to live in Vegas.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Question About Beer CO2 Absorption
« on: April 21, 2015, 09:23:03 AM »
I've found that over time the metal head of the poppit wears away at the post. Had a small leak from several gas poppits and under magnification there were scalloped grooves in the rim where the poppit mates with the post. They would cause the poppit to re-seat incorrectly when I removed the QD.
I have some leaky poppets with rubber gaskets that look great to the naked eye. Thanks for the explanation. I feel better about ordering new ones now.

New posts or poppits? I'd order both.

I don't believe the beer can absorb enough co2 to disrupt the keg's main seal and cause it to lose pressure or depressurize.

More likely there is a minor leak somewhere or unrealized operator error.

Beer Recipes / Re: Ideas for brewing with Grand Marnier
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:47:36 AM »
It doesn't say how to apply the GM. I certainly wouldn't boil or ferment with it as it would drive off the delicate volatiles in the liqueur.

Add at racking time IMO.

And I don't care for that recipe either. Looks like a terrible beer actually. But then again I'm not a fan of brewing huge beers like that; seems like most homebrewers go through a phase where they brew ridiculously strong beers- just because they can... ;)

Glad all is well with your family and business!

Hope you've had time to squeeze in some brewing here and there.
