This may be a little long winded by I'v been doing some research for work on this topic. So

Go ahead and use the yeast you have on hand. The British ale yeast will leave the beer slightly
more malty than the CA yeast and won't accentuate the hops as sharply but you will end up with
a very ni...

That's where I think I'm heading as well T1. Initially I was thinking online order bulk and may
someday (thus my question) but if my local hbs will fill the grain recipe even if I only buy

I just had to buy a 1lb. bag of roasted barley. I only used 2oz. from that bag. I sealed the
bag and put it in the freezer, hence, I won't have to buy roasted barley for sometime, cutting

I have had the same question for a while now. Normally I I force at 14 psi and 45 F so no
problem. There shouldn't be a problem @ 32 PSI and 70F except that most silicone tubing that is

From the thread I think 32 psi @ room temp is the way to go.

Does anyone have any experience with warm keg carbonation? I normally keg me brew and then
force carbonate at 45 F with a head pressure of 13 psi and five days later I have beer with
