Posted in thread: Occasional mystery gas leak in keg on 01-04-2012 at 03:23 AM
I kegged up a beer about a month ago with a tank of CO2 which started at 950psi and slowly
dropped to 900psi as the beer carbonated. It stayed right around the 900psi mark for a few
weeks, over which ...

I made this recipe with Pacman last weekend and it's currently fermenting around 60F. I'm
actually kind of hoping to keg it and drink 14 days after brewing (having friends over), but in
addition to ha...
Posted in thread: Rapid Brett secondary? on 02-03-2011 at 10:57 PM
It might be partly due to the fact that I filled this carboy almost to the top -- the bubbles
do seem to cause more of a stir on the surface when they're concentrated over a couple of
square inches, a...

After a 6-week primary with WLP530 that took my beer from 1.058 to 1.007, I racked to secondary
and added 3 tbsp of yeast slurry that I had built up from Russian River Damnation dregs. I was

For my first BW I used the no-boil technique, cooled to 90F within 15min, let the lacto take
hold for two days before adding the yeast, etc etc. I got a *funky* smell coming out of the
carboy as soon ...

I got more info and gave this a shot a few months ago, although it was a fair bit off from the
real thing. As a side note, I had a Daisy Cutter from the can a couple of weeks ago and it
seems quite a ...

Posted in thread: Hot steeping hops after fermentation on 05-16-2010 at 06:36 PM
I've heard about good results from letting flameout hop additions steep at 180F, but that lacks
one advantage of dry hopping, namely avoiding the scrubbing action of the yeast. Which raises

120F, 133F (then pulled+heated 1qt), 150F (pulled+heated 4qts), 162F (pulled+heated the rest).
The rests might have been on the long side though, because the sparging went very slowly.What

Posted in thread: Hot primary for lambic on 04-29-2010 at 03:23 AM
So more worrying... bubbling stopped within four or five days, and ten days after brew day the
gravity is down to around 1.007. Is this high or low for the yeast-only ferment? I did a turbid
mash, so ...
