    To stay?To quit? To move?

    OK as a group I respect; I should probably explain a little. The past four years for myself, and those around me have been hard with a few on going legal issues. We are now at the end of all that mess and it is best we move on. Away from this mess and also away from the city, some time for some...

    What Tap is this?

    So I got these taps above with a font from flea bay recently, gave 'em a good soak in PBW for 48hrs. There are a few things I'd like to replace along with seals. You might be able to see on the exploded Tap the shank has a mild steel cir-clip, I want to change this out to stainless as well as...

    Switch to MLF and stainless QD's

    So considering switching over to MLF fittings, but as with everything there's a reason behind it. For the last year I've had drama's with leaks, now as best I can tell it's the ball valves on my gas distribution, so I was going to upgrade the ball valves to high pressure and I can get 1/4 to MLF...

    Pitch into bottles

    I have a rather large Belgian (12%) that is struggling to carbonate. I know it fully attenuated and I added the appropriate amount of sugars but to this point (3mths) epic fail on carbonation. It tastes incredible but a little heavy on the pallet so some bubbles and head would really make this...

    Hey guys, Neither of my HB shops stock White Labs, so while I there I just grab what I thought might be close. The recipe calls for WLP022, I got Wyeast 1098 and 1028, are either of these close?
