    I usually hassle the seller direct .... There are plenty of them on FB markerplace

    Good to know, will definitely ask the seller where he got the keg and check for any stamps etc. before I buy one second hand. I thought the kegs that you get from businesses is renting only? was not aware you can buy a working keg / place a deposit on one and keep it as long as you like. Usually there is a time limit for renting one.

    Hypothetically, would there be an issue in using ice to cool. Let me explain, so you do your grain step and then bring to the boil and then the hops etc. What if water is an issue and you dont have an option of an immersion chiller or an ice bath, could you add in ice direct to the wort?

    Say you start with 20L of water for a 22L batch. You lose quite a bit with the boil etc. So for example you lost 4L so you would have 16L at that point, throw in 6L of ice. The Palmer book does mention it, but only the things you need to be careful of, like bacteria from commercial ice, nothing else.

    Just something I thought of the other day and was curious about.
    There once was a man from Nantucket.
    Who brewed his beer in a bucket.
    He put the wort into there,
    to cut down on the air.
    Then drank it all up like a muppet.

    my old mash method: Mash in the oven. Damn that was so nice and easy, but small batches suck!

    But I don't know if you can trust someone who stores their Toy Story DVD in the deep freeze!?!?!

    I was very keen on this at one stage, but then it didnt seem practical, and the Fast Brewers precooling in the sink definately makes it easier for the ice:

    [95deg 20L wort] + [ -18deg 20L ice (say)] = [38deg 40L of 1:1 diluted wort] [crude calc, neglecting different heat capacities]

    Its a lot of ice to sanitise and freeze and still not get you close to pitching temps?

    Same ... I sometimes even go up to 1.75.
    My friends cant understand how I can follow a vid like that, but watching it at normal speed puts my brain to sleep

    How many times do you guys use your cubes for no-chill before discarding?

    Forever

    I've got 2 cubes I sort of rotate between brews. I got rid of the previous cube that I've been using for years when I got these 2 about 2 yrs ago .... I only got rid of the other because the Iodophor I used back then gave a "kak" colour stain on the inside.
