A friend of mine just did a collaboration with a chef in Boston to create a truffle beer. They

Posted in thread: Beer lost flavor after a few days in the keg. on 05-14-2014 at 02:32 PM
I've noticed that some days when I have a beer from my tap it tastes super flavorful and

I drilled my thermowell hole in the dead center. Just fermented an Oktoberfest in it and it

Gravity was steady at 1.010 last night so I racked it to a keg and hooked up the CO2. The
sample had a nice, hazy golden color and tasted a bit like bananas and spice. Interesting brew
for sure. I ass...
