Has anyone tried the Hop Rocket as a Randall-type hop infuser?

Pimp My System / Re: Anybody use Minibrew?

I have one of their conicals. I hated it. Used it twice. Waste of money. For one thing you have to buy a separate seal to seal the lid down, otherwise you are just resting the lid loosely. Also, the valves are not sanitary and you can't take them apart. That works fine on a  boil kettle but you want to be able to clean you valves after every brew (or at least every 2 or 3).

As far as their MT I'd just stick witha  cooler, personally.

I've used www.plastickegsamerica.com and while they haven't been without some issues (have found a handful that leak) they have worked well enough and they are much cheaper than stainless - and people don't steal them, which is nice.

One suggestion about kegs - order 4Xs the amount you think you will need. For every one keg you have at the brewery there are 3 others out (one on its way to location, one at location, one on its way back). Rotating cooperage is a pain.

I like their O-fest and try and pick up a six pack every year. Some years it is better than others, but it is always far from terrible. One of the seasonals they do best IMO, along with their Spring Pilsner seasonal.

I know where he's coming from. I always try and order local beer on tap from a bar, but there have been times that I've quickly switched to bottles or even BMC.

that was a general statement, eh? It wasn't pointed at all? Wow. I guess I just misinterpreted it.  ::)

I don't know, seems like you are making assumptions ... or trolling again.

So, are you saying my beer is crap, and you know that for sure?

The Pub / Re: Don't know what to think

Was a big SD fan way back when. 


Some of their new stuff is awesome. "Everything Must Go" was their latest album, it won a grammy. Worth the purchase of the album for sure. "Two Against Nature" also had some really good songs on it. And Fagen's "Kamikiriad" was a solo album but since Becker produced it it sounds like Steely Dan. good stuff, all of it.

I invited him to my brewery, if he shows up that should be enough to convince/encourage/convert him. Assuming he likes my beer.  ;) I also shouldn't accuse the guy of drinking Bud Light. He was buying a double wide of Sutter Home at the time. ::)

So, before you begin yelling that we need to start big with big systems if we want to make money, let me tell you that this will be a part-time gig to start, as we grow we can upgrade.


Well, to be fair this is a much better approach than your first post where you said "hooking up your homebrew system, basically kegs with cut off lids" - dairy equipment can be a very good way to start a small brewery.

You'll forgive me if this is the wrong link  but I am on dial up and cannot check and see if this is the correct link, but I think this guy uses a lot of used dairy equipment IIRC - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEmvcslPpoM

Also, not sure what kind of response you will get here but there are a few guys that have used dairy equipment to start a brewery over at www.probrewer.com - very good guys over there who would be more than willing to help you.

yeah, I'm sure even Brandon's beers will be better than a Titan's game this year. :D j/k - I am looking forward to trying a few. I may even be going up for the Nashville Brewfest Oct. 1st.

Well, in that case, I wouldn't get too worked up about it. You will get negative feedback from time to time. especially from people who don;t know what the hell they are talking about. I was talking to a guy the other day who said he "didn't like any of the local beers". I asked him if he had had my IPA? No. My Belgian White? No. My Alt? .... maybe but not sure. WTF? The guy had never had ANY of my beers. Whatever dude. Go back to your Bud Light.

Serve it over buttered pop corn?  :P

Seriously, do you add any minerals to your water? I was adding gypsum to my mash and stopped because I got some mineral character I didn't care for (even though I thought I needed it w/ my water profile). Cut it out and it was gone.

Just a stab.

Beer Recipes / Re: Non-alcohol beer

I don't think its worth the time or effort. If you want something non-alcoholic brew up a batch of iced tea. Way better than non alc. brew.
