10 Gallon Used Whiskey Barrels Available!

These 10 gallon used whiskey barrels from Sons of Liberty Distilling Company have been unavailable and out of stock since December of last year.  They popped back up earlier today.  I have no idea how many are available, but generally speaking, availability of barrels in this size range are limited and they sell out relatively quickly.  Update: These sold out in about 24 hours.

Cereal Killer Adjustable 2 Roller Grain Mill – $99.99 Shipped + Reasons To Get a Grain Mill

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  2.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain.  3.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer. and… 4.  Mad street cred… :)

Cereal Killer Grain Mill

HBF Reader Feedback…

Anonymous… Bought this a few weeks ago. Love it. Much better than a corona mill.

Google+ Friend Kieran… Just used our Cereal Killer for the first time last month on a clone brew recipe. This thing is lights-out! We did not spring for the optional handle, and instead used a power drill.

Google+ Friend Chris… Used mine tonight, great deal, great mill.

Paul Says… “I have this mill and love it.”

How to Fix a Keg That Leaks – 5 Things to Check

New 5 Gallon Corny Keg Ball Lock

Adventures in Homebrewing has a nice step by step write up on fixing keg leaks.  I particularly like #5 “Post O-Rings”.  I find that to be a particularly pesky leak.  I’ve lost at least one full tank of CO2 to a bad oring that cost pennies – See: Checking for Gas QD CO2 Leaks for more on that.

Check out the Step by Step Guide

AIH also has a number of keg sales going on right now…
