    I contacted Redhook as well and they gave me bupkis. Oh well. My beer ended up pretty tasty,
    although certainly not a clone. If I were to brew it again - which I most likely will - I'll
    cut down on th...

    Redbeard - did you ever hear back from Redhook?I'm a big fan of this beer, but I couldn't find
    it anywhere this year. I decided I would attempt to clone it without first looking up any
    recipes or emai...

    It's been sitting at 500psi all day in my 40F fridge. Thanks again guys!

    It's been sitting at 500 for a few hours now so I think it has stabilized. Thank you both for
    reassuring a worried homebrewer. I had used some dish soap, water, and a sponge to check for
    leaks earlier...

    I was just gifted a brand new 3 gallon ball-lock cornie keg kit as a wedding gift from a very
    generous fellow homebrewer. I hadn't planned on getting into kegging for a while, but he has
    forced my han...

    Thank you to everyone who replied and I apologize for the very belated response. Things have
    been hectic lately.I ended up racking the 5 gallons of wine to a 5 gallon carboy. I didn't have
    my 5 gallon...

    I'm about a month into my first wine kit. I've been homebrewing beer for about a year and a
    half with no infected batches so I'm quite confident in my sanitation. However, after racking
    this wine into...

    What kind of efficiencies are all you SS braid users getting? I have a round, 5-gallon cooler I
    use for 2.5 gallon batches. It looks like a standard 12 inch braid will be a little too big for
    my coole...
