  • It all started with a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas. After 4 batches of nasty, near undrinkable beer, I gave up. Almost two years later I connected with a friend that was into brewing and named off a couple websites. After coming across and ordering myself a kit I am now obsessed. I am currently set up with a 3-tier keggle setup doing 5 and 10 gallon AG batches. I love it!

    You will definitely get a better extraction rate at warmer temperatures. I usually dry hop at
    around 68 degrees for 4-5 days, then I cold crash for an additional 2-3 days to get the hops
    and any remai...

    I've never seen them in a grocery store, but I've never looked for them either. I think I've
    seen them in passing at some specialty shops like whole foods, mothers market, etc. Most
    homebrew shops wil...

    I haven't checked my mash pH, but I have had my water tested and I adjust using Brun water, but
    I've also used RO water and had the same issue.Not sure where you live, but here in drought

    Is your tank in the fridge with your keg? If so the low temperature will throw your gauge off
    and make it look like you have an empty tank. If it's outside the fridge, then yes, it looks
    like you bett...

    I routinely keep homebrew in my closet for several years, although mostly styles that lend
    themselves to aging like barleywine, stouts, and other high abv beers. Sure a pale ale will be
    fine to drink ...

    I use the FermWrap from MoreBeer hooked up to my temperature controller. It works great, highly
    recommend it. It's $30 so not too expensive. Here's the link if you're interested. You can tape
    it right...

    Yeah, the hops screwed you. Commercial strains can't tolerate any hops generally. Not sure if
    there are any exceptions to that (and even if there were, I certainly wouldn't want any
    hop-tolerant lacto...

    Well, good news is that it's definitely starting to sour now. Looks like I might have saved
    this one.

    Just checked, still zero sourness. Added 8ml of lactic acid and checked with a ph
    strip,appeared to be in the 4.5 range. Pitched 1# of raw 2-row malt in a grain bag, flooded the
    kettle with C02 and se...
