    ABOUT ME

  • Keystone Homebrew Supply has been providing quality beer and wine making supplies and expert advice since 1992. A thriving community of dedicated local homebrewers and winemakers has helped us to develop Keystone into a rapidly expanding two-store operation (including an amazing, one-of-a-kind 23,000 square foot facility in Montgomeryville). We believe our staff at both locations is what really sets us apart, however. Our mission is to provide a fun and educational experience for local brewers and winemakers, and superior selection and service for all of our customers.

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone completely replaced the lid of a keezer? on 11-03-2013 at 01:47 AM
    I can't fathom why a good sheet of foam like you described wouldn't do the job. Hell, the wood
    around a keezer as a collar for the taps works wonders in terms of insulation.

    What was the OG? That yeast will top out around 12% without very special treatment.

  • Posted in thread: WLP007 slow to finish on 11-03-2013 at 01:19 AM
    Sometimes the great flocculating properties of WLP007 can slow fermentation, especially when
    under-pitched.Assuming both of those beers were about 1.055, you pitched just below the crease
    of a good pi...

  • Posted in thread: Dry-hopping West Coast Blaster with citra? on 11-03-2013 at 01:09 AM
    I tend to dry hop with hops I've used in the recipe. So, personally, I'd go with a blend of
    Cascade and Centennial.That said, 3oz of Citra is going to blow any other hop flavor and aroma
    out of the wa...

    Brett B can be very sensitive to the sterilization properties of hops. There is a reason why
    there are not too many hoppy sour beers, as most, including Orval are simply dry hopped. An
    Orval clone wou...

    Brewers Gold would be a great choice, but not noble I know. Strong black current flavor with
    some pine, and actually similar to Chinook in that regard.US grown Saaz can go upwards of 8%AA.
    I like wher...

    Gravity, Gravity, Gravity. The only way to know.Mead can vary depending on what yeast your used
    (Please Tell Us!), but a "dry" mead will usually fall around 1.010 or less, and a "sweet" mead
    around 1....

    Did you open the Belgian White at room temp? That can cause a rush of the carbonation if
    so.Otherwise, if the beer was cold, it might just be over-carbed. Throwing them on ice and then
    a very gentle p...

  • Posted in thread: Grain Mill Gap on 10-25-2013 at 11:44 PM
    Get a few pieces of straw. If it goes through and doesn't get a *tad* torn up, the gap is too
    wide.And oldie but goodie way of testing a grain mill. Otherwise, get a piece of hard corn.
    When it *won't...

  • Posted in thread: Grain Mill Gap on 10-25-2013 at 11:24 PM
    The perfect crush is not how "fine" you can get it. You just want to crack the barley (or other
    grain) while leaving the husk intact for draining and sparging. A spray bottle to wet the grain
    while it...
