    Huh. Interesting comment from Igloo. Both homebrew stores I go to locally sell the yellow and
    red igloo coolers pre-fabricated MLT. I've never experienced because I built my own from a Home

    I would suggest Cali Common Yeast on darker maltier styles and Kolsch Yeast for lighter hoppier
    styles. Keep them in low 60's. Cali Common is in fact a true lager strain and has produced
    fantastic Sch...

    Seems bizarre to have krausen fall then come back. I don't think you have to worry about the
    blow off tube falling out of the sanitizer, microscopic critters don't crawl up and over,
    typically and you...

    I'm pretty sure the beer is older than 2 weeks- it's been two and a half years since the OP

    Thanks Yooper. I've been out of the bottling game too long.

    I think, either you guys are totally missing whats going on here, or I must be missing
    something. OP doesn't have an infection! He said his beer tastes fine! The OP is using way too
    much priming sugar...

    Esters are not something that should develop after primary fermentation has taken place. Esters
    are formed during yeast reproduction and active yeast metabolism. That being said most esters

    One of the advantages to using a stir plate is that you do not have to oxygenate the starter
    wort because the constant stirring will introduce all the oxygen you need, assuming you don't
    have an airlo...

    Neat. I'll have to price that out. The frequently bought together, it can be very helpful or
    very dangerous...Sent from my iPhone using Home BrewIt is extremely cheap even if you use name

    You need to combine OxiClean w. TSP90 ( think the ratio is 3 parts Oxiclean 1 part TSP90. I

    was much mo...
