My beers always go down hill for the first week or so in the keg. I've decided it is from
sediment concentration right in the zone where you pull from. It was good previously because

I wouldn't think it is the lines. beer shouldn't flow back in the keg from the line. How many
pints have you poured off, and is it fully carbed? You might be getting a bunch of yeast and

I use this website to figure out pressure for carbing. Pretty easy from there. I used to do
the 25psi for a day and test, but I find that I don't lose much time doing it the new way, and
I don't over...

My lhbs won't carry Imperial Yeast, but I can order it. At this point I've done 6 batches with
my pacman overbuild. It's been an awesome yeast for me so far, I love how flexible it is.

I figured 15 tops at first, but the more I look at how I handle the yeast, the more I wonder
why I can't do more. When I pitch my yeast into the wort, I am pitching into a liquid that has
an OG of at ...

I use Homebrew Dad's yeast starter calculator, and always overbuild my starter and save the
excess yeast for future brews. I do this, rather than harvesting the yeast from the fermentor
because it is ...

definitely the yeast!I'm sure it is. By the way, thanks for the awesome intel. This recipe is

I use a starter of Joystick from Imperial Organic (Basically Pacman) on almost all my beers. I
