Project Updates – Cam Locks & Fittings arrived!, HopTop still in progress…….
My cam lock pump starter kit has arrived from www.OntarioBeerKegs.com and I have it dry fit together at the moment. Still need a few more parts but nearly ready to build the brew pump toolbox. It’s really exciting to finally see some of these projects start coming together!
And a quick update on my progress with the HopTop Fermenters – I have not been able to get anything started yet but it is on my to do list asap, I’m sorry it’s taking so long. What I can say about them so far is it’s definitely an excellent idea/product, very light weight and tough. They only need a tablespoon and a half of water and your fermenting product is completely safe from oxygen exposure or bugs getting in.
I have given one to Duncan Blackman and he’s currently using it for making yeast starters for his baking, and I am planning to get some Sauerkraut, and Garlic Pickles going soon and maybe a small batch of cider to round it all out.
Does anyone have any pickled item recipes they would like to share? I love trying new things and on a small scale like this, it’s perfect for trying new ideas on a small scale.
