Sgt. Major. The LCBO by my family cottage has a cold room, it was one of the few places I could get Sgt. Major that was cold, even though it had 'Keep Refrigerated" on the side of the 6'er.

I have bought from Ontariobeerkegs a few times now. Great service, good prices.

If you are mechanically inclined, you can hack the thermostat on a chest freezer, eliminating the need for the external controller. Saves $30ish.

I hate to bottle alone, but if I have a second pair of hands it isn't too bad. I generally brew with 2 other guys, so if we bottle, there is a good flow going. One to sanitize (and rinse when filled), one to fill, one to cap.

Sure, 0.6 is exact, but 0.66 would work.

I have had the white drops a few times, it has always been yeast colones agglomerating. Don't stick anything in, you're more likely to infect doing that. Wait, watch, have a beer. Look for hairs to grow on the white spots. All righty. If hairs do end up growing, then what's the plan? Dump it? I wou...

After some additional reading on another home brewing site I am leaving my beer in the primary fermentor for the whole time. It has been just over two weeks and I dropped in 1oz of NZ Cascade hop pellets. I will let this sit for another week and will bottle condition for 2 weeks. My Festabrew brown...

I have plasma cut the tops off of about 10 kegs so far, frankly I find the cut better with a grinder and jig. If you do a search on HomeBrewTalk for it, there are a few jigs that are quite easy to make. Plasma cutters, even when used by an experienced person, leave a somewhat ragged edge, as it is b...

Did a taste off tonight of 2 pretty damn good stouts to decide which to enter in a competition. One is 2.5 years old and still hoppy as balls. The other has an incredibly complex and smooth malt profile, the aroma has a hint of cherry. Very interesting, two very different, but very good stouts... n...

I'll bet that you end up with beer JP, and in the end that is what counts.

/I use paper towels to sop up the bubbles in the hydro vessel
