Anyone do it? Any good suggestions for a starter kit? It looks like it's about the same cost you would pay for decent beer from the store is this accurate?

More hops in the boil? Any recommendations? I bought some Nelson Sauvin hops I am excited to use.

What hops are you using? Dry hopping usually does the trick for aroma, but you might want to do some 30-15min and flame out additions as well. That should boost the flavor profile.

Haven't used or heard too much about Nelson Sauvin hops. Let us know what you think.

Centennial. I probably need to boost the % a bit.

Any recommendations?

I have had beer brewed with Nelson hops. EFFING GOOD.

When you say %, do you mean IBUs? amount of hops? Alcohol? Centennial usually runs in the 9-11% AA ranges so I'm guessing you are getting around 100 IBUs which puts you more in the Imperial range. Is that what you are going for? What is your grain bill like?

I've done a nice single IPA with all Centennial (it was a 2 Hearted Ale Clone). Off the top of my head it was something like 5 oz all together; an ounce at 60, 45, 20, flame out, and dry hop. It ends up being around 60 IBUs with a OG around 1.060. Actually won a couple awards with that beer.

Centennial is one of my favorite hops, but if you want to get a wider array of flavors, you might throw in something else as well. If your going for the heavy floral/citrus Pacific NW feel, any of the C hops would be fine (Chinook, Cascade, Challenger). I'm also a big fan of Amarillo.

Got a Kegerator last night and now I need to get the O2 bottle filled. Any help from the guys with kegging gear is appreciated.
Getting this setup has resparked my interest in brewing. Part of the reason I havenít done it in a while is the hassle of sanitizing 50 some bottles to bottle my brew. If I could syphon it into one keg and let it effervesce there Iíd probably do it more often.

You need to fill it with Co2 not O2. I'm in Wichita, but any welding or fire extinguisher place in your area should be able to fill it or exchange it. What else do you need help with? Is it home built or store bought kegerator? Do you have any kegs yet?

Ok, Co2, I was being lazy but youíre right there is a difference.
The reason I ask is there seems to be conflicting information on the internet as to whether a welding supply shop will have lubricant in the Co2, but thinking about it I canít come up with any useful purpose that would serve to a welder.

Store bought, donít have any kegs yet, just looking to get it setup and probably buy a keg of commercial beer just to try it out.
When I do get around to home brewing a batch Iíll most likely go with Cornelius Kegs but they have ball locks, one for gas in and one fluid out. How do you adapt that to a typical Sankey keg valve?

Never ran into anything like that, but I have only heard of using welding supply place ancedotally, which I know a lot of people that do. I go to the Kansas Fire & Equipment here and get a 10lb filled for $14

Store bought, donít have any kegs yet, just looking to get it setup and probably buy a keg of commercial beer just to try it out.

You have a couple choices, you can get some corny kegs that have the sanke fittings (called sixth barrels I believe). These are pretty expensive last I checked and I'm not that familiar with the functionality of them (cleaning, dissembling, etc.). I have seen some people convert ball lock kegs to sanke fittings, but am unfamiliar with that process as well. What I would do is take the sanke fitting off your kegerator hoses and put on ball lock disconnects. The only problem being you wouldn't be able to easily serve commercial sanke kegs in the future, as you would have to cut off the ball lock disconnects and reconnected your sanke fitting.
