  • Got into brewing because of an auditor. He told me that he brewed beer, and I thought how good could it be. I did not think of it much until he brought me some of his HB. After that I bought a HB kit with 2 carboys and it exploded from there. Got tired of bottling, so I started kegging. Wanted to do some Lagers, so I converted an old Stand-up freezer into a Kegerator with a digital temp controller. Made some good beer, Made some ok beer, and only made one so far that I have had to Kick! I enjoy the process/researching and sense of accomplishment when someone drinks one of my beers and says wow thats good! This is a great hobby.

    I currently use an Immersion chiller, but had some questions about the Counter flow
    Chiller.When using the counter flow chiller do you run the water opposite the way the wort is
    flowing. So the coldes...

    Assuming the beer has finished fermenting, there could still be CO2 in the beer. Even if it is
    not carbed. This would gass off during the move creating a barrier over the beer. If at this
    point a cap ...
