I've been brewing ever scince I moved home from germany and realized I couldn't afford to keep buying the good stuff in bottles. I've got about 40 15 gal batches under my belt now. I use kegs for everything, pots, fermenters, and serving, and I'm sure that anheiser busch hates me because of it. I currently have 2 on tap. One is a hefeweissen made using yeast cultured from a bottle of weihenstephener, and a tripple decoction mash, pain in the a$$, but you gotta use the decoction if you wan the right body and flavor in the hefe, (took me 3 lame batches to figure that out). Also an amber or pale ale (whatever you wanna call it), american style, hoppy and oaky as hell (lots of french oak in the secondary). I love it. I also make alot of browns, wits in the summer time, belgian dubbles and strong darks when the stock pile is big enough to let a batch sit for 6 months, IPAs, ect. Always all grain. I'm totally interested in a swap or something. Does anybody deal with soda kegs. I have a few of them and if your making 15 gal batches, I think they would work great for trading. I haven't made a batch in a few weeks cuz my false bottom colapsed duing the last one and am in the process of outfitting a new one. With the new tun I should be able to get 30 gal of atleast 5% from one mash. So finished product will be 2 3/4 full half barrels. I will definatly bring a growler or 2 to the swap though. I think it would be great to see how some other people brew as well. Maybe we could set up an event and everybody bring their own 5 gal bucket/carboy and we brew and when it comes time to transfer to the fermenter, we split it amongst the buckets/carboys and take it home.
