    I thought I would paint the lids of my mason jars with chalkboard paint, so I could keep track
    of my yeast inventory. scratched up the lids with some heavy grit sandpaper, then sprayed with
    primer fo...

    Could you just do a 60 minute mash at 150F? I have a cooler for a mashtun and you mentioned
    keeping it simple if you can't do step mashes.As for pureeing........How long do you leave the
    fruit in the ...

  • Posted in thread: My third brew ever, a little nervous on 08-19-2015 at 12:33 AM
    "Relax, don't worry, have a homebrew". This is a repeating theme here at HBT. I've found this
    out after reading The Joy Of Homebrewing.I've not finished the book yet, but the title says it
    all. This i...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone else annoyed with newer breweries using cans? on 08-19-2015 at 12:25 AM
    That's amazing. So are you saying that they prime and carbonate in the can? Given how flimsy
    those cans are I would not have imagined they would hold the pressure generated by carbonation
    without gett...

    For an overcarbed keg, you can hook the gas line to the liquid post to "blow" the excess co2
    out of solution. First, vent the keg of all co2 pressure, then hook the gas disconnect to the
    liquid post (...

    I don't get the whole "cans are better for the environment" thing as glass also recycles. I
    recycle both all the time.I do get why some folks prefer cans over glass. I keg my beer, so I
    don't have to ...

  • Posted in thread: Taste issue. Beer lines? on 08-14-2015 at 10:43 PM
    That could be true - there's a temperature relationship that could make any of those pressures
    perfect for carbing and dispensing at 2.4-2.5 volumes of CO2 - pretty much center field for
    ales.So, you ...

    I have the silver lines from kegconnection. They are awesome. You should try them out
    regardless. Another thing you can look at is your CO2 psi. Running too high could impart a
    carbonic bite.CO2 press...

    I'm thinking about changing my beer lines on my keezer. I have experiencing a sharp bite in the
    after taste of some of the maltier beers I've made.I have a 4 tap keezer, so thought about
    maybe changin...
