Call me crazy, but I got a good deal on eBay for a Fluke 51-2 digital thermometer. It's pretty

This happened to me once when I accidentally included oats with the rest of the whole grains

I carbonate my stouts at ~6-8 psi on CO2 for 10-14 days (40° F), then switch to the beer gas @

That makes more sense! Gotta love that stout faucet! I just tapped an oatmeal stout that just
