Cough, cough. Sneeze. Drink some water. Hmm, the beer bottle list is pretty impressive. Cough. Hey, where did my son go? No, don't put your hand in that pond. Sit over here. Sneeze. Cough... Cough. Cough. I'll take the ordinary bitter.
San Diego has a great beer scene. There are a bunch of famous breweries and even a cool place to check out yeast http://www.whitelabs.com/. In my view, any place you can check out yeast is cool. I like beer ...
In the past I've had a difficult time tracking down a great place to have my kegorator's CO2 tank refilled in the greater Denver area. Places are inconsistent, prices are all over the map, and a lot of places (like grow shops) only offer 20 lb tanks.
I've compliled a short list of friendly shops that will fill or exchange your CO2 tank for a reasonable price.

We’re on a plate chiller writing spree at Pintwell! While Chris is a fan of the Duda Diesel, for the money I think the Shirron Plate Chiller is a solid choice. At a touch less than $100 the Shirron Plate Chiller is cheaper than many immersion chillers you will find out there. And it’s compact and does the job. I can cool down my wort to pitching temps in half the time it takes me with my immersion chiller.
As we discussed last week, I’m on the plate chiller/heat exchanger train and couldn’t be happier. One of my primary concerns about making the leap to a plate chiller was the sanitization and clean-up process. I definitely did not want to add more work to an already crowded brew day.
To my pleasant surprise, I have found that with a little planning both sanitizing and clean-up are as easy, if not easier, than they were on my immersion chiller set up.
