You could file this one under “first world brewing problems.” This tweak is not going to revolutionize your kegging game. Not even close. No one will ever eye your setup and say, “Wow! Sweet mess of tubes! Show me how to make my brewing life more difficult, Mr. Goldberg“. Fuck the haters. Sometimes a brewer has […]
Much like Dexter, success or failure of an afternoon often hinges on the availability of the tools needed to complete the task at hand.

You might be asking, “Garrett, I thought you accomplished all you had ever hoped to accomplish in terms […]
I’d like to talk more about it but the first rule of it is not to talk about it. Stay tuned.
We now have over 100 students and couldn’t be happier about helping them find their path to home-brewing enlightenment one ice box mash tun and/or TV cabinet grain mill at a time.
