MoreBeer as I always have enough to get the free shipping.  I also like their expanded AG kits for known commercial beers.  I used to buy all bulk grains and hops; but now that I don't brew as often as I used to, the AG kits are pretty convenient and the quality has always been good for me.

I soak the keg in PBW and hot water; probably about a gallon.  Give it a shake every time I walk by it, turn it upside down in my garage sink, etc for about 24 hours.  Then push the PBW through my beer line.  I then rinse the keg with clean water, then add about a quart or two of StarSan, shake, and then push that through my beer line.  Then I store the keg and leave the line until the next batch.

Update -
I got an email this morning from MoreBeer that they are officially discontinuing the MoreBeer forum. 
I am going to reply and request that perhaps they can leave the Board up so people can at least access the information but I guess that may be easier said than done.

Anyway, take a moment to raise a pint to the B3 Forum.  I learned a lot there and it was the first forum I visited when I started this quest over a decade ago of trying to learn how to brew a decent beer. 

With that, hope you guys don't mind if I pull up a chair and start hanging out with all of you - my new beer buddies.

Hello all,

I still serve as a Moderator over at B3 - not much to moderate over the past year as we probably only have about a dozen or fewer regulars.  That was my first forum when I started brewing about 13/14 years ago so the sentimental value has kept me from moving on.

Anyway - started having a ton of Spam and really no site admin left to ask about it.  Brewtime and I sent messages to B3 with a plea for help and the next day the site was down.  I sent a message to B3 and got a response that they are "upgrading the software and the site should be back up very soon."  That was about a week ago and I have not heard anything else.

Good to see some old friends on here!  Had to laugh at the mention of TF and USMCruz.

Breaking mine in today - approx 11 gallons of Porter in a 60L. 
I found a stopper with a lower profile and use the standard airlock.

With all the rain we have been fortunate to have this summer, my other hobby is cutting grass.

Otherwise, I fish and have started tying a few flies.
