    I am about 12 oz into my first pint pour of my Kentucky Common. What a delicious beer! Thanks
    for sharing your recipe, Revvy. Spicy, sweet, smooth, quaffable... I can see devoting a long
    session of ha...

    I'm sure this has been brought up, but what's the longest anyone gone with bottles bottled like
    this?I have a couple of bottles left of a 2-year-old Gratzer. (Session-strength smoked wheat
    ale.) If an...

    Just bottled this last weekend and I cannot wait to try it! Came out fairly dry at 1.006 FG. If
    this is as good as everyone says, it's definitely going into rotation.Mine will be kegged soon
    and I end...

    Here's a good article on the style; I learned a lot from
    it.https://byo.com/stories/item/1151-mild-ale-its-not-dead-yetGood article! I'm pretty sure
    that another BYO article is the one that got my bro...

    That looks good; I like to keep low gravity browns on tap most of the time and this looks like
    a good one to try sometime. That's quite a thing to win BOS with a mild.
    Congratulations!Thanks! We're st...

    I've never had a mild, so I'm really looking forward to it.EJay, my brother and I had never
    tasted a mild until we poured ours, so just like us, you'll be introduced to the style by the
    work of your o...

    How long did you let this set in primary, before racking it? Mine has been there a week as of
    tomorrow, and I don't see any noticeable action. Of course, the silicone stopper I'm using
    doesn't have an...

    In the fall of 2011 my brother and I went from a vague notion of brewing something quick to
    formulating a recipe and then brewing it over the course of a single day. We went with a
    low-gravity English...

  • Posted in thread: Does the blue carbonator cap EVER actually work? on 06-17-2013 at 03:45 PM
    Funny you mentioned a hammer... The cracking of my previous plastic carbonator cap was via
    hammer. It might have been weakened/fatigued from all the torque I put on it in a failed
    attempt to get it to...

  • Posted in thread: Does the blue carbonator cap EVER actually work? on 06-14-2013 at 07:13 PM
    I'm on my second blue carbonator cap. The first one cracked, after having never once succeeded
    in sealing on bottle threads. As in CO2 hissing out loudly while I was trying to pressurize a
    bottle. We'...
