General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Gift for homebrewer with everything....
« on: September 07, 2013, 10:39:03 AM »
If you are in the Northeast, the Woodstock Inn and Brewery in Lincoln, NH has a Brewer's Weekend package.  If you are not in the Northeast, check some of the local small breweries and see if they offer something similar.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Taking Newly Bottled Beer on a Plane
« on: April 27, 2013, 04:12:30 AM »
I had considered doing this myself the last time I flew out to see an old college buddy. I spoke to someone at the airline (Southwest) and they advised that bringing beer (either carry on or checked) onto a plane is not a problem as long as the beer is in a clearly labelled (aka commercial) bottle.  When I told her that my homebrew was in a plain brown bottle she advised against it. Not wanted to risk losing some of my precious beer (not to mention some of my dignity during the inevitable cavity search) I ended up shipping it instead.

I tend to keg my session beers. That way when I say "just another half a glass" (usually more than once) I can't get myself into too much trouble.

Star San for me.  Used to use iodophor but didn't like the way it stains my equipment (and counter tops).

5 gallon batch?   If your kettle will fit in the sink give it a nice ice bath.  I keep the lid off until the temp gets under 140 degrees. Then I put the lid on, soak a towel in the ice cold water and drape it over the top. I can usually chill down to pitching temp within 45 minutes.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Two Tap Kegging setup Question
« on: February 16, 2013, 08:57:19 AM »
The cheapest and easiest setup would be one CO2 bottle feeding a single output regulator, feeding a dual output manifold.
I agree...this is the best way to go as long as you don't mind using the same psi for all your kegs

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Beer Labels?

I have a Hallmark program on my PC that the wife uses to make Birthday cards, etc......It also has a section for making shipping labels which I use to make labels for my special brews.  The last 2 years, the kids have made the drawings that were used to make the labels on my Christmas Ale.
