You probably didn't get a good mix of the priming sugar. So some bottles will probably be
overcarbed and others undercarbed. Just my .02 though.As you learn going through future
batches, leaving the b...

I add frozen berries to a 2nd bucket and rack on to them. For a 5 gallon batch, I use 6lbs of
whole frozen berries and the flavor is nice. Not strong but not weak either. You know you're

DId they supply the proper amount of Amarillo then? If not, they screwed up. If it's extra,
play around with it if you want.Add the 2nd at flameout, cool the wort and strain as you
transfer to your pr...
Posted in thread: Force Carbonation with Kegerator at 20 PSI? on 03-12-2013 at 03:12 PM
It really is temperature dependent. If I'm in a huge hurry, I'll put the keg in my kegerator at
30 psi for 36 hours, then purge and reset for 12 psi. In three days, it's pretty well carbed
but gets be...
Posted in thread: My first "bad" batch, or is Oktoberfest aweful? on 02-28-2013 at 04:39 PM

last summer and d...

I hear ya, but remember, airlock activity isn't the end all be all to fermentation. Like I
said, I have 3 primaries that never bubble even when I push on the lid, it looks like I have a
seal as the wa...

You could have slightly broken a seal and the gas is escaping elsewhere. I have 3 primarys that
rarely bubble due to a lacking seal. However, I've never had any issues with an infection
Posted in thread: Forced Carbing. What am I doing wrong! on 02-25-2013 at 06:26 PM
I guess at room temp 35 isn't too terrible, but it still sounds overcarbed if you're foaming.
Leave it off the gas and purge the keg every time you walk by it for a few days. Check it after
a few days...
