The Brew Cave is coming together!   The brew cave is coming together slowly but surely  I have decided to downsize the beer fridge due to the smaller space but I gain so much more shelving and work space in doing so. Now I have even more room for new projects LOL! The Danby Beer fridge is almost plumbed and ready to go, I just need to put the Beer and Gas posts on and connect it to the C02. Eventually I would like to upgrade the tower to two taps but that’s easy enough to do, and I’ll have some more photos of theRead More →

I just took a peek at the Cerveza and it’s smelling amazing! And the fermenting chamber is having no problem keeping the temp between 10-13°c in the Fast Fermenter with the thermal probe from the INKBIRD 308 Controller inserted into the thermal well on the fermenter, and fits perfectly!   And the great people at FastBrewing & WineMaking have hooked me up with a 30L model of the FastFermenter with the accessories to put to work and review, and so far I’m really enjoying it. Very simple to setup and clean, and with the option to hang or use a stand it’s really a great spaceRead More →

Perlick Keg Fridge Restoration I got lucky and found this Perlick Keg Fridge for $200 on www.usedvictoria.com and I am excited!  My friend Rich has the same unit and he loves it.  This is going to need a little work to get it back into it’s old glory but it’s going to be awesome! The fridge will be serving 4 taps once it is all setup and has room to hold 8 ball lock kegs.  The consensus so far is that I will need more taps down the road. And I’m ok with that.Read More →

Sorry it’s been a little slow on the blog the last little while, Melissa and I have found a house and we are moving at the end of September!  We are in the process of packing up and sorting through everything and clearing out the excess in anticipation of the moving day Oct. 1 and it’s going to be great! We are moving into a large house with a massive yard and some apple and plum trees, so there will be plenty to post soon.  I am slowly but surely adding parts to the shelf for projects on the go and the first two areRead More →

Beer Bottling gun & Stout Update I have kegged the Bourbon Soaked Cacao Nib and Vanilla Milk Stout today, the FG was 1.022 with an ABV of 5.25%. It’s very aromatic right now, and has cleared very nicely. I did not taste it yet however, i want to allow it to condition a little more first so I will have some tasting notes in about a week or so. And I have swapped the gas hose barb on the bottling gun with a new bulkhead and gas disconnect. And I have swapped the gas hose barb on the bottling gun with a new bulkhead andRead More →

Brew Mail I have a couple new items of brew mail that have arrived recently including the new Beer Bottling Gun I ordered from www.OntarioBeerKegs.com during the pre launch sale along with a Gas Ball Lock post with 1/4″ bulkhead assembly (www.Ebay.ca) so I will be getting it setup soon and give it a try and see how it goes.  And I have received a product sample from HopTop: Mason Jar Airlock, I have previously posted about them a few months ago and I heard quite a good response back and now I am very excited to be able to try it out and really seeRead More →
