    Thanks for the encouragement. I couldn't find any mention, but it shouldn't be all that
    different than bottle dregs. Gelatin is a good suggestion but I'll try without first.Sent from
    my XT907 using Ho...

    So I relocated and tossed all my stored yeast. I need to restock and all I have is three kegged
    beers that are even better than I remembered after eight months. I am considering stepping up
    some start...

    I use the jars with a little rubber tab that seals a pin hole under vacuum. The only problem is
    that occasionally the temp change or moisture from freeze thaw compromises the seal. I didn't
    notice a h...

    After a cross country move I'm back in the game six months later. Just ordered chinook,
    crystal, ahtanum, and simco-licous from yak-valleyhops. Time to hook up my kegs and taste the

    Hey, I just brewed a rye IPA and hop bursted with 4 oz's of Columbus leaf hops late in the boil
    and a couple oz's of willamette pellets. The airlock smells awesome but I'm pissed that I
    didn't realize...

    It's your mouth, but I would drop the crystal and munich a bit and then drop the ibu's by about
    50. But that's just me. You might really want a punch in the face, and I like those once in a
    while too....

    Can't really help you, but curious about the responses. I'm planning my first bo pils Sunday
    and the current plan is to just add 75% RO water. It takes my calcium way low but I think there
    will be ple...

    Very cool and a bit inspiring. I need to do a big boy brew to age for special occasion.

    What do you mean by sanitize the gas line? In my thinking I want the gas lines completely dry.
    I set up a new system and was spraying starsan in the gas lines as I was pressing them on the
    barbs. It m...
