Equipment for auction

Recently I've been alerted to the existence of several beer-related items on http://www.equip-bid.com. A quick search for the word "keg" today reveals not only kegs but some kegerators, and a Perlick 6-tap tower. I'm not in the market for any of that at this time, but it might be a worthwhile site t...

Well, I tried the method shown in the YouTube video. Have you seen that "nailed it" meme? :|

I also tried putting two eggs through a couple cycles in our salad spinner. No difference.

Further research required.

Re: Hard Boiled Eggs

The method I use is as follows. 1. Cover the eggs with 1" of cold water, then put them on the stove. 2. When the water is at a rolling boil, remove the pot of eggs from the heat and cover with a lid. 3. Let the eggs rest in the pot of hot water for 13-15 minutes. 4. The eggs will be done perfectly, ...

Re: Keezer builds? Bring me your pics and ideas!

Oh man, that would most certainly suck. Good eye on that photo, Matt. To add to Matt's grumblings: Another thing that sucks - and I have done this on more than one occasion - is when you install a freshly cleaned faucet, hook it up to a keg, and receive the unpleasant greeting of instant beer flow. ...

Gobb it on and wrap it in a trash bag to keep it from drying out. Leave it for a few days. Works great!
I've used it to transform old rock-hard windshield gaskets for re-use.
Great! I will check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Keezer builds? Bring me your pics and ideas!

I have a kegerator; I posted a photo of my setup on the Guild's Facebook page. It was posted back on January 28th so you'll have to scroll down a while to find it. It's a side by side fridge with custom shelves that are covered in galvanized steel.

Rubber conditioner

The kegs I own were well-used (loved?) when I bought them, so every time I wash or handle them the rubber tends to blacken...everything. Can someone recommend a good product for conditioning the rubber?

Re: Keg O-rings

Frank - Thanks for the offer. I need to get a supply of spare o-rings for all of my kegs such so that I don't get in this predicament again. But since I brew with Rob and he has o-rings...

Rob - I'll get some dip tube o-rings from you when we keg. Thanks!

Keg O-rings

I disassembled some kegs this evening to clean in advance of kegging on Tuesday (6/18) evening and found that one of the dip tube o-rings is damaged. Does anybody have some I can buy? If you have a collection of other keg o-rings available, I'd be interested in buying more, even poppet valves. If it...
