    At the 48 hour mark I finally started to see some early signs of fermentation. Now at hour ~53
    its taking off. Hopefully it will finish before late tonight so I can refrigerate to decant
    tomorrow.It's...

    Since you say it's happened over several brews I'm guessing you have used different kegs so I
    wouldn't think O rings are the problem. Are there any hairline cracks in the sample thief? When
    I used Sta...

    What kind of temperature control do you use during fermentation and what temps do you set it
    at? How long at each temp is somewhat important too.I have a Haier mini-fridge with an STC-1000
    controller....

    I've been using filtered water and I treat with 1/4 campden tablet. I'm using a glass carboy
    without spigot for fermentation vessel and I siphon it out.Any other ideas?Thanks

    I've had my last several extract beers turn out a little off, an off flavor that doesn't
    totally ruin the beer but its borderline not drinkable. In retrospect, I'm convinced it's
    origin is post fermen...

    I did a starter last week with a vial of White Labs 008 yeast that was expired. When I picked
    it up for $2, I thought it had a best by date of 1/1/16, but instead it was 1/1/15 (almost 2
    years old). :...

    Past the 24 hour mark, is it too late to pitch a new packet/vial? I'd rather not waste my yeast
    starter.

    Thanks for the suggestions.I don't have a refractometer unfortunately.I'm doing the ol
    intermittent swirling technique, no stir plate.I 'm thinking it's more translucent than
    "milky", but it looks lik...

    I made a yeast starter with a 4 month old Wyeast 2565 (Kolsch) packet. 20 hours later, no
    activity. Is it too early to call this yeast DOA(it was shipped during the summer)? Is it too
    late to pitch a ...

  • Posted in thread: Pull sample from naturally carb'd keg? on 08-23-2016 at 05:55 PM
    I'd like to pull a sample from a keg thats been naturally carbonating for 1.5 weeks at 72
    degrees. The beer was already conditioned before kegging. My understanding is I shouldn't
    attempt to pour from...
