  • Posted in thread: Serving a Sour on 08-16-2014 at 11:33 PM
    I am getting to keg a sour that was brewed last september. My question is related to the
    equipment. After I tap this, should I buy new o-rings, dispensing line, etc due to the yeast so
    that I don't in...

  • Posted in thread: Strike Water Temp Issues on 05-04-2014 at 01:34 PM
    I had to buy a new thermometer a couple of batches ago and ever brew session since I reach the
    target strike water temp, pour it into the cooler, stir the grains, and the mash temp is 4-6
    degrees high...

    This was a new barrel. The other part of the batch was fine. As I mentioned, this was tasting
    normal about a month ago. Do you think the leak and the contamination are related? Why would it
    have start...

    New barrels - fill barrel with hot water, rotate it and empty until the color of the water is
    transparent. If not using for a period of time, fill 1/4 full of water. I did this but I filled
    it 3/4 jus...

    I followed the instructions that came with it about cleaning, if it sits for some time, etc. I
    noticed several weeks ago, a thick, brown tar that had started coming out where the spigot
    connect to the...

    some and filled the barrel. About a month ago I tool a sample, it had a nice brown flavor as

    Didn't really have a target FG. This was the first time making a Scottish Ale. but I have never
    had a beer finish that high, usually 1.020 and lower. Wasn't sure how this would affect the
    flavor of th...

    I am currently fermenting a Scottish ale that had a starting gravity of 1.104. After 3 weeks it
    is down to 1.030, with a little activity left. The beer is still heavy and thick. Do I let it
    ferment lo...

    I read some clone recipes in Brew magazine that did their fermentation this way, 68 then 55 for
    the secondary. I was assuming this was to help settle out any left over yeast. So are you both
    saying us...

  • Posted in thread: DIY Fermentation Chamber vs Freezer on 09-21-2013 at 06:35 PM
    I am wanting to do my primary fermentation at 68 degrees for a week then do secondary
    fermentation at 55 degrees or lower for a week or so. I have a DIY chamber that I am currently
    not using and a che...
