Been a number of years since I posted here (or brewed for that matter). I'm wanting to take my
single tier system from propane to natural gas. I have a 1/2 ball valve ready for me to use on
the back p...

You have to be selective on what you believe when reading open forums. A lot of bad/incorrect

Finally got around to testing the O2 +AE batch again. Gravity was 1.010. Perfect. The taste?

Looks like I've stopped at 1.009! Sample tastes good. It's getting kegged tomorrow. I'll have
