It's probably double the cost of the keezer I built with all new parts. But it looks real nice and if you need it to match an existing counter top, it may be worth it.

I would not go less than three taps. I have four and sometimes need more.

All Grain Brewing / Re: your experiences in moving to 10g?

I've been brewing at least 10 gallons most of the time for 15+ years. I do 5 gallon batches of some beers like BVIP, Oktoberfest and other "seasonal" beers. I like to maximize my brew time (usually once every 6-8 weeks) and I enjoy having that extra cornie after the first one is gone of a beer that I really like.

I'm with Keith, just tell them you appreciate that they enjoy your beer. Never hurts to be humble.

Euge- Did you make this beer (Apikolsch)? If you did, how did it turn out? A friend just brought by 12 lbs of apricots and told me to "make something". I think I'd like to go the lighte beer route making either a kolsch or a lager. I have cascade, tetnang, saaz, and sterling hops available. I'm leaning toward sterling.

Any thoughts, anyone?

A few more suggestions in my area (Yakima Valley) would be Ice Harbor in TriCities has two places both with good food and great beer. I like the old location on Benton Street, while my wife prefers the newer place on Clover Island. A few miles west in Prosser in Horse Heaven Hills Brewery. A small brew pub owned by a couple great guys. I often use Gary, the brewer to critique by lastest brew. In Ellensburg is Iron Horse Brewery. I haven't been to there "Micropub", I've only been to the Brewery/Tasting Room. It was a small place with good beer. Their Irish Death and IPA are worth the stop.

Have a great journey!

It's on my birthday wish list. I'm about 99% sure it arrived the other day (saw an empty More Beer box in the garage), so will let you know in a few weeks. I hinted that it'd be nice to have this Saturday while kegging a pale ale.

I hope they dont ever take away our rights to sunshine. Here in AZ, we'd be screwed!

If they could only figure out a way to tax it...

Must be the irrigation district who own the water (I guess technically the Bureau of Reclaimation). That's who I paid almost $100/acre last month for my water this summer which it now looks like it will be very tight.

Reminds me of when I was a lttle kid my older brother made some root beer. Every once in a while a bottle would explode in the basement. When you opened one you'd end up with about 1/4 of the bottle left. Could have used them the 4th of July for fireworks.

Go for it. I do it when I feel it needs more hop. You're using the correct hop IMO.

Kegging the 2 week old Kolsch then putting it in the fridge. Got some kegs to clean and some other projects in my shop. 

Should finish cutting the cherry wood sometime soon before I get busy at work and it gets hot.

Speaking as an employer, it's almost never a good idea to burn bridges. While some of the comments here are funny and are fun to joke about, the "is this the hill you want to die on?" is a better approach. You probably don't know the repercussions of a negative action. Who knows, you might have to work with him or worse yet work for him down the road. He might get a few chuckles from a few people around him, but I bet most know what he's all about. In short, take the high road....
