    Engine Crane as Brewery general lifter

    Everytime I see the engine cranes come up on special from SCA and the like, I wonder if this would make a good multipurpose brewery crane for lifting malt pipes from the braumeister or moving other equally heavy things around, such as full fermenters etc. I know one could build something more...

Ability to be able to level, some sort of crane or pulley to lift the malt pipe out, wheels, brewday stand, quick assembly/disassembly, basically a 'triton workbench' that can do everything with the BM in...

    Hop Thief 8

    Anyone have any inside information on Hop Thief 8? I thought HT had become a yearly seasonal upgrade release, but suspect HT7 may have set new sales records, perhaps putting a version 8 on hold for the time being?

    Just wondering if anyone has an Australian source for wide mouth glass fermenters in Australia. Wide mouth pickling demijohns have been mentioned, and seen the US wide mouth carboys (like in the pic below, which holds 7 gallons).

    Marking glass for identification

    I am looking to put some sort of identification mark on some glasses on the underside so it doesn't detract from the glass itself. I think those dymo type stickers or marking pen will just wash off. Worried about engraving in case a crack develops. Any suggestions on how to do this would be...

    AABC 2016 Guidelines?

    Will there be updated AABC style guidelines this year, considering that BJCP style guidelines were released last year? The idea of having a common set of style guidelines sounds like a good idea, but perhaps there would have to be some leeway on both sides.

    Tube for aeration stone kit

    When using a stock standard aquarium style aerator with stone on the end, I find the line connected to the stone just wants to coil up, making it difficult to get the stone to stay at the bottom of the wort. Anyone have an easy solution? A tube between the stone and the line would do the trick...
