  • 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!

    I've had quite a few homebrewed berliner weisse that have this problem. As said above, if you
    don't do a good job keeping oxygen out or proper temperatures, you can let other bacteria take
    over and yo...

    All 3 of your photos look like the beer is still fermenting. All, or at least most of the
    krausen "head" should fall....usually. Generally you will want to leave it in primary a minimum
    of about a wee...

    Are you using a spring loaded bottle filler? When I was bottling, I'd rinse the bottle filler
    out but never bothered to take it apart. I didn't know it came apart for the longest time lol.
    When I fina...

    Not sure about in your neck of the woods, but I used to work for a distributor and we'd rent
    empties occasionally - so it's worth a try.Agreed, it's worth a shot. Just tell them that
    you're a homebrew...

  • Posted in thread: Temp controller fluctuations? on 08-08-2016 at 11:50 PM
    2 degree fluctuation should be fine. If your controller turns on and off every time it drops a
    degree it will put extra wear and tear on your freezer compressor. But also like stated above,
    a thermowe...

    Also, I brewed beer for a friends wedding once. He rented a kegerator and I told him to call
    the place to see if they had the option of a ball lock setup, which they did for no extra
    charge. I'd call ...

    Buy a keg of your favorite commercial beer and drink it up before the wedding. Fill it with
    your homebrew, use the adapters, and then return the keg to the retailer after the wedding.

  • Posted in thread: Temp Effects on Dry Hopping on 04-20-2016 at 04:35 PM
    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
