Based on my estimated, home beer making is about 75% brewing and 25% cleaning.  I had recently drained a couple of kegs so today it is time for me to clean them and my taps in preparation for my experimental Oktoberfest Ale and my next to be determined batch of homebrew.  Thankfully for home brewers, there are cleaning solutions out there like PBW home brewing clean that can help with the job.

 

How to clean a keg

My keg cleaning process is pretty simple. I place a keg tap head on the output post of the keg, so that the dip tube of the keg can pass fluid, I then flush the keg post and dip tube with water and rice any yeast, trub or particulates from the keg.  After doing that 2 to 3 times until the keg is visibly clean, I add in a scoop of PBW and fill the keg up to the rim with PBW solution. I then allow it to sit for at least an hour.  I then flush the keg and dip tube again and inspect the keg.  At this point I may or may not remove the posts for a more complete cleaning and run a brush through the dip tube.  I then spray sanitize the kegs for storage.

If you need home brewing cleaner, I highly recommend PBW ( Powdered Brewery Wash).  It is fantastic.  Whatever you do, do not use household dish soap unless you have no other choice.  I dish washing detergent would be a better choice.  For a food grade sanitizer I recommend star san.  They both can be purchased via the following link at a great price!

Beer Brewery Keg Stool


For today is project I welded up a old decommissioned 5 gallon brewery keg and made myself a new home brewery stool with an adjustable height seat.

I had bought a cheap stool for the base materials and cut it up to be used for parts. The items did not fit together perfectly so there was a good deal of cutting, grinding, welding and finishing. All in the project took about 3 hours but I am happy with the results. Having the ability to adjust the height on the seat comes in pretty handy depending on what project I am working on.  The additional legs around the base of the keg adds some stability to the stool in case one of my friends has had a few too many!

The tools that I used to make my brewery stool were a mig welder, grinder, hack saw / cut saw, wire brush, hammer and a little sand paper for finishing. If you would like to make your own brewing throne, brewery stool, keg stool or keg seat and have any questions, please feel free to ask or leave a comment.  I am always happy to help out!

Coupon Description
:  There has been a price drop on the RoboBrew home brewing system and you can now pick one up for just $472 at Williams Homebrewing. Turnkey home brewing systems have been all of the rage over the last couple years as manufactures have been coming up with clever ways of simplifying all grain home brewing and shrinking the footprint of home breweries. Keg King has now entered the market place with their Robo Bbrew digital home brewing system. While the name may be less than desirable, they certainly got the functionality right for their home beer brewing system.  For the price, it is difficult to find a better home brewing setup.

The Robo Brew homebrewing system includes a pump for wort recirculation with an on off switch, as well as a false bottom and grain pipe to both protect the pump from clogging, and hold the crushed grain above the bottom for good wort circulation. That is a big feature upgrade when compared to lower cost home brewing systems.  The Robo Brew holds  9 gallons which makes it the  perfect size for 5 gallon batches of your favorite home brewed beer. The grain basket will hold up to 18 pounds of crushed malt and grains! I real plus is the Robo Brew runs on a 110 volt plug, so you do not need a 220 v to power it unlike some electric home brewing systems; you also do not need to worry about running out of propane during your brew day since it is a fully electric home brewing system. The Keg King ROBOBREW is like a simplified Grain Father home brewing setup.

The Robobrew has a basic electronic thermostat that lets you set temperature and relax while the Robobrew electric home brewing system handles your mash conversion for you. Heck, you can even program the RoboBrew home brewing in advance! The RoboBrew includes just about everything that you need to start brewing right out the box and it is built from almost entirely stainless steel!  In fact the Robobrew even includes a stainless steel immersion wort chiller with standard 1/2″ hose barb outlets! The Robo Brew home brewing system also includes a Digital Backlit Temperature Control,  Malt Pipe, Dual Element Heating, a stainless steel ball valve and Magnetic Pump! With all of this, the RoboBrew is one of the best home brewing deals out there for just $472.

:  If you are looking to break in to home brewing and want an economical all grain home brewing setup then this is the home brewing deal for you! Williams Brewing is offering the Brewer’s Edge all in one home beer brewing system for just $299.  The BrewersEdge is a simple an compact home brewing system that has high end features such as digital temperature control and electric heating. The Brewer’s Edge eliminates the need for an outdoor burner or even a 220 volt circuit. The Brewer’s Edge home brew setup plugs right in to any standard 110 volt household outlet. The Brewer’s Edge Mash and Boil’s exclusive double wall stainless construction conserves heat to achieve a rolling boil with only 110 volts and its precise thermostat and internal home brewing sparge basket lets you mash and boil in the same vessel.  A typical brew day with the Brewer’s Edge Mash & Boil home beer brewing system begins with formulating your 5 gallon all grain recipe and then heating your strike water to 162° F, the preset heat temperature.  The just mix your crushed grain into the sparge basket already inside the Mash and Boil. The mash will cool to 152° or so, and then you set your thermostat to 150°, cover, and let mash for 1 hour. After one hour, lift the sparge bucket and lock on its included legs, and let the malt sugar drip into your Mash & Boil, which has now became a boiling pot. Turn the thermostat up to 218° F and prepare for your boil.  Now remove the grain basket, and when the boil begins, add your hops as per your recipe. Boil for 1 hour, and then cool with a suitable wort chiller, or use the stainless valve with ½” hose barb to run the wort through your external chiller. The Brewers Edge homebrew system also features a delayed start timer, so you can program the Mash and Boil to turn on up to 24 hours after setting. For example, load it with strike water, and have it set to be hot when you come home from work to save time. Intended for 5 gallon batches, maximum capacity is 7½ gallons.

Digital Home Brewing System v4

Digital Home Brewing System

Digital Home Brewing System

 

MoreBeer recently released the latest version of their Digital Home Brewing Brew Sculptures and if you have not seen them, you should check them out.  What I like most about More Beer’s home brewing rigs is simply reliability.  There are a lot of advanced home brewing systems out there, but the More Beer digital home brewing system is about as top of the line as they come. When you are dealing with digital controls, temperature regulation and flow control if your system is not reliable it become very easy to destroy a batch of beer. More Beer has been building and innovating home breweries for as long as I can remember and their home brewing setups are used by some of the highest regarded breweries in the world for creating test batches.  A few breweries that use them are Russian River, Sierra Nevada and Stone; and that is just a few of them. What More Beer has built with their latest version Brew Sculpture is basically a miniature professional brewery for your garage.

Here are just some of the features of their latest digital home brewing system:

  • These home brewing system are built in the USA in the MoreBeer! Metal Shop
  • Made from 304 stainless steel making for the ultimate home brewery that will outlast you. No paint or powder coating, just like a professional brewery.
  • Every Homebrew Sculpture includes folding handles and built in rear casters that allow you to move your Brew Sculpture with ease.
  • Oversized 304 stainless steel home brewing Kettles with welded fittings, notched lids, internally etched volume markers, aluminum clad bottoms, and silicone handles. Built to last.
  • The More Beer Large option comes with 22 gallon kettles, while the extra large model it comes with 30 gallon kettles.
  • The fluid path is easy to use and clean. We’ve included the time tested, top of the line March pumps along with heat resistant food-grade silicone tubing and our own specially designed stainless quick disconnects.
  • Burners are fast, efficient, quiet and have great flame control.
  • Mashtun includes the More Beer home brewing Ultimate Sparge Arm with innovative design to eliminate hot-side aeration. This is the same sparge arm that I use for my home brewing system and it is fantastic! The center draw outlet with quick disconnect is locked in during mashing but easily disconnects for cleaning. The mash screen has a very low volume of base water under the screen to aid with efficiency and mash consistency. The perforated stainless mash screen is reinforced for use with pump recirculation and includes a silicone gasket to make a perfect seal with the kettle wall. Internally etched volume markers make mash water additions super easy.
  • Boil Kettle includes innovative Whirlpool maker for leaving hops and trub behind. Volume markers are etched on the inside so you know exactly how much wort you have at all times. The lid notch is super handy for hanging hop bags, using an immersion chiller, etc., but when not is use an included silicone plug seals the notch. The bottom of the boil kettle is tri-clad with a 4 mm aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of 304 stainless. The aluminum core eliminates scorching and the cleaning that comes with a scorched kettle.
  • Digital home brewing control system
  • Easy Mashing – Choose from 3 preset mash schedules or Custom design your own with up to 5 steps. From there the control panel guides your mash through the temperature raises and time rests automatically.

 

  • Always Hot – Controller maintains the Hot-Liquor tank temperature you choose by turning the burner off and on automatically.
  • Auto Sparging –  Sparge water flow is controlled automatically with an integrated Mash Tun float switch
  • Timer Alarms – Built in boil timers remind you when to add hops, finings, or anything else
  • Manual Mode –  allows you to control pumps manually for anything you want such as cleaning.

Ohhh and did I mention that these digital home brewing systems ship free!
