    :ban:Woohoo!! It worked great and was a big hit at the family BBQ yesterday. Thanks for all the
    help and reassurance along the way!

    I'm not going to lie...I feel a bit embarrassed to be asking some of these questions given I am
    42 years old and have been brewing for over 10 years. BUT, this is my first foray into kegging,
    so I gue...

    Given the c02 isn't emptyI checked on it again this morning and it was holding steady at 12psi.
    Could the temperature have anything to do with it? The beer may not have been fully chilled
    before I put...

    Quick question. I just checked on my keg in the fridge after 24+ hours and the regulator gauge
    was reading zero. I turned the dial and heard gas flowing and set the gauge back to 12psi. Any

    Thanks all. The beer is in the fridge and on the gas at 12psi. I hadn't realized it took so
    long normally to artificially carb a keg. Hopefully it will work well enough.I also hadn't
    realized I should...

    want to make this beer soon. but I am concerned about these 50 IBU even with a 1.060 OG,
    bitterness almost goes off the scale. I'm planning to keep the IBU near 30. (more comfortable
    for me)can anyone...

    I have soft water in my area with a ph of about 8.5 and about 45 ppm of Carbonates. Should I
    add Calcium Carbonate to the mash to get the right target ph? I don't use any buffer, and I
    would like to u...

    I have very chalky well water and am planning to use RO when I brew this this weekend. Would
    you recommend adding anything beside calcium chloride and gypsum if using acidulated malt?I've
    never used R...
