  • Recently (June 2012) got "back" into homebrewing, did one extract kit 12 years ago, two more about 6 years ago. Am full in now, based on the awesome results I've which are largely due to online resources like this forum. Have brewed 9 batches since June 2012, building my pipeline. 5 of these batches are at drinking age now, 4 are conditioning.

    It will use up more co2 but not problem at all. I have a big saison (8%) that has been kegged
