Got sick of bottling...

Unread postby The Fat Jedi » Wed Dec 16, 2015 11:47 pm

Don't know if this should go here....but what the hell!

I've had a 20l Braumeister for about 5 years...used to bottle but it's a pain in the ass. So I did this.

If I can do it, anyone can....seriously!Image

The chalkboard lid is brilliant. If you had pre-prohibition brass faucets, would you feel safe pouring with them?

This looks great, hat is that white box in there? Where do you keep your CO2 tank? :drink:

Thanks guys! The white box is a plug socket in a sealed unit to keep the damp out. I plug the 12v fan into it...maybe not the most elegant of solutions, but I'm hopeless at DIY and it works! Gas bottle is outside with a line into the manifold.

Nice, but if it were me I'll get those regulators out of the fridge.
