I have a Bachelor's in Exercise Science with a concentration in Wellness and Cardiac Rehabilitation. I am currently earning my Masters in both Healthcare and Business Administration.

I spent all of my high school years involved in sports (tennis, track, cross country, swimming ) and my college years involved in fencing, swimming, and being a gym-rat. I spent my first year post-college in a competitive cycling shop. I then became part of a hospital system where I continue to run a Wellness Gym, perform various screenings, educate staff and the public on various health issues, and provide counselling for those that need help.

comment Kegerator Parts for Ball-lock kegs
Since I have never put anything together that is supposed to hold pressure (like the CO2 hose/connector) or hold liquid (keg to tap), do you have any insight into precautions that should be taken to prevent leaks, blowing lines, etc.?

comment How to chill wort
To piggy back off this question... My friend and I use store-bought ice to cool our 2.5gal boils. Is there any reason this is less than ideal? We dump the freshly boiled wort onto the ice in our primary fermenter and then add as much cold tap water as it takes to get us to 5.25 gallons. (The reason for the extra .25gal: We are bad at siphoning off the beer for secondary fermentation, and we normally spill a little during bottling because we are usually drunk.

comment What does it mean when a recipe calls for a boil addition of coffee in pounds, but also mentions brewing the coffee?
The amount of coffee you use will denote how strong the coffee taste is when your beer is finished. using one pound of coffee will yield a much stronger coffee taste than using half of a pound.

comment So I don't know if my primary is done
Point taken. I meant bubbling slowly and consistently, but you are right.
