    There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing that CO2 coming out of the blow off on a new batch or seeing a bottle carbonate!

    UPDATE: So I disconnected my gas line from the keg, cleaned and reconnected and put it back on
    gas for 24 hours and now I have carbonated beer and I backed it down to 8psi for serving and
    it's pouring...

    1/4" ID beer line should almost never be used in a home system. It takes almost 4 times as long
    a line to get the proper pressure drop vs. a 3/16" ID line. Your line is definitely not
    "balanced correc...

    See my responses in REDHow are you serving the beer, picnic tap or regular tap? How long is
    your beer line? Is the beer line and tap cold? Are you getting foamy pours, that are then flat
    when the foam...

    With only four batches under your belt and the tank almost empty, I would think you had a slow
    leak. I've carbonated about 20 2.5 gallon batches over the past year and a few months and I
    still have CO...

    I've been researching this and only thing I can think of is that I either have a problem with
    my regulator or CO2 tank. I have a 5 gallon corny keg on the gas right now at 25psi at 35*F.
    It's been on ...

    Wanted to update those who helped me out! First beer has been carbonated and serving for a week
    now and it's perfect! I used stainless MFL fittings on both the ball lock ends and the CO2
    regulator end...

    Some micro-breweries will also sell or give away their excess yeast. I've gotten yeast from my
    local macro before. Legally they probably can't sell it though.

  • Posted in thread: Just bottled an IPA that was in fermentor for 2.5 years on 04-27-2015 at 06:29 PM
    I've had an IPA of mine that sat in the bottle for about 15 months and it was fine, no aroma of
    course but the bitterness was nice and the flavor was good. I agree, this may not carbonate as
    most of t...

  • Posted in thread: Best inexpensive grain mill on 04-24-2015 at 08:42 PM
    Not sure what you mean by "Commercial". What we homebrewers are using are industrial grade and
    will last many 10's of thousands of pounds of malt going through them. the best inexpensive
    mill I know i...

  • Posted in thread: BM's Centennial Blonde...Vienna substitute on 04-21-2015 at 06:05 PM
    That small amount of Vienna doesn't make a huge difference. You can leave it out or do what was
    mentioned here and lightly roast some 2-row to give it a more full flavor.
