    Drawer rails for my mill

    I scored the rails at eBay here in Germany. They should be found as "extra duty drawer slides" or similar all over the globe. The blue bucket is a "Trofast" storage box from IKEA. The rest is some strong laminated plywood. Use thick wood to prevent torsion of the rails: the mill might fall off...

    Fementer In Fridge.

    Vibrations while opening the door or walking towards the fridge? You can simulate that: put an open bottle of beer into an ultrasonic bath. But use a remote switch... ;) Cheers, Alex

    Electronic Bung Valve

    Sure. For natural carbonating. Forced carbonation is almost unknown over here... ;) Cheers, Alex

    Electronic Bung Valve

    Exactly. No need to calculate FG os anything. Just put the beer into a keg for secondary fermentation (under pressure). It helps to get exactly the CO2 content you want. It is at least here in Europe a very common method used in almost all breweries. Alex
