Anyone like mini-kegs?

Not really.  But they did work out better for me the last time I used them then they have in the past.  I have a batch of 70/- in them right now.

I purchased a backup hydrometer several years ago.  The funny thing is...I have never even used it.

Perhaps that is a stroke of luck.  I'm certainly not complaining.  :)

The only time they break is when you don't have a backup.  That's a law.

One pristine Wort Wizard, courtesy of Denny Conn.  A few years back, my wife emailed Denny on the sly to see what brewing stuff I might like for my birthday.  He suggested a Wort Wizard since he himself uses one, and to be honest, he couldn't really think of anything I might want.  But, my system is even "cheaper and easier" than Denny's.  No Wort Wizard required.  Gravity reigns supreme.  Anybody want to buy a Wort Wizard cheap?  Trade?  C'mon!!!

I used mine quite a bit and found it really great, but I've got a _real_ pump now!

I had a bottle washer for two years and was unable to use it because there was no way to hook it up the the faucet I had.  I have since moved to a new house with a standard faucet and I love it.  I can't believe I suffered for two years.  I should have just sprung for a new faucet and saved myself all the pain...

I got a refractometer for father's day, and I haven't been able to use it yet.

I've got so many unused things, I can't even remember them all. Maybe I should open a HB Shop  :D

I bought a co2 tap that pushes into the top of the 5 liter mini-kegs, thinking I'd start using mini-kegs instead of bottles.  Didn't really catch on though....


Maybe we should work out some kind of unused equipment trade.  Anyone like mini-kegs?

I sold mine an unsuspecting newbie.   ;D  As far as I know he hasn't even brewed since he bought them but is always " gonna try and make beer next month".
