    ABOUT ME

  • New guy on the block, learning some tricks of the trade. While waiting for fermentation I will probably continue working on my bike to start riding around the island again, play video games while my wife complains at my laziness, and finish up my college work at the very last minute. My only hope is I can make enough beer to supply me with happiness every day!

    Ah hah...eureka, and then some. Forgot about the fundamental fact that equalization with active
    resistance would result in the closing of the ball valve until pressure increased again on the
    gas side....

    What I'm saying is that a check valve may stop most of the problem I seem to be having with
    beer entering the line, but it cannot stop it all because the pressure can equalize between the
    line and the...

    I'm not sure how a check valve would help in my case, as I always have my gas valve open to
    provide constant pressure for dispensing. From what I know of check valves, they only work when
    the pressure...

    Update: I tasted my Flander's Red about a week ago (6-7 weeks after placing in the primary). It
    had a definite sour taste to it, but was a milder sourness and not altogether unpleasant.I just
    brewed m...

    The other day I was tasting my dopplebock and it tasted fine but I decided to up the CO2
    pressure to give it some more fiz. After doing so I noticed that a familiar sour/ sulfur taste,
    so yesterday I ...

    I got in touch with White Labs, who also does analysis, and they basically recommended to try
    and solve the problem rather than spend money shipping the sample to find what bacteria are
    there. I descr...

    Man.. all the talk of this cleaning makes me feel like I'm some chump in cleaning my kegs. I've
    never had a problem *knocks of wood*.I empty a keg, and keep it in the keezer usually, unless I
    REALLY n...

    I can see the weld between the cylinder and the top itself and I tried to clean it as best as I
    could, but I can only feel the weld where the dipsticks connect. I did clean them with brushes
    and with ...

    Reading John Palmer's "How to Brew," as mentioned before, he didn't mention anything about
    re-pacifying. I understand how that could solve the problem if it really was leaching, but I am
    not tasting a...

    Well, it would seem as if all my efforts were for nothing. I have been dispensing my recent
    pilsner over the last four days and yesterday noticed a slight "huskiness" (the best way I can
    describe the ...
