brewig stand/kegs
« on: November 06, 2014, 06:49:49 PM »
I just welded stainless a coupling into two kegs and bought the ball valves and fittings to attach them. Do y'all use Teflon tape to seal the thread and do y'all take it apart to clean? BTW the stand I made is a 3 tier gravity system. I am also looking for ideas to addon to or make another stand that is unique, difcerent, custom, or useful.

Take a look at my Face Book page. "Freak Brothers Homebrew". I have a few pictures on there of different systems. Mine is kind of old school. You may not be into that but, I was just at a buddies house last weekend and he has a really cool set up. There are some other things on there that may give you some ideas.
Brewing massive amounts of freakin' good beer since 1991. We had to learn the hard way. No homebrew stores or beer nerds (like me) to talk to back then. Just pure passion and determination. Relax, Don't Worry, Have A Homebrew! -23 Karma! Yee Ha!! It went up! Smite me if you must but, trust me.
