24 hours should do it.

Boil with the lid off, otherwise it will likely boil over. As soon as you cut the flame, put
the lid on and allow the wort to cool. Overnight on the stove is fine. The steam in the pot
will sanitize t...

This should do: you won't need a starter if you're using dry yeast. One packet will do it.
Posted in thread: CONNECTING 2 regulators to 1 CO2 tank?? on 07-23-2015 at 09:02 PM
You likely can remove the tank coupler/stem from one of the regs, remove the high pressure
gauge from the other reg, then thread them together with a 1/4" MPT nipple.The one thing to
watch for is the ...

I have a batch that is 8 days into primary as we speak. After nearly 80 batches of homebrew,

No, you don't need a stir plate. They're nice to have as it allows you put your starter on
auto-pilot until it's done, but you can make a perfectly good starter without one.2L flask is
fine. That's wh...

12 PSI should most definitely carb your keg. How much time did you give it? Flat beer will take
2-3 weeks to carb fully at serving pressure (10-12 PSI).

It just sounds overcarbed to me. 3' of liquid tubing is too short unless you've got flow
control faucets. It will work, but will take a lot less carb to foam than, say 10'. Continue to
vent CO2 from t...
