Hi Tom. Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I was hoping to find an old email/letter/notes from
contacting the brewer at the rail house. I do remember getting some info from him that I'll do
my best to ...
Posted in thread: krausen falls but still vigorously fermenting ??? on 10-05-2010 at 10:41 PM
How's your beer turn out when the krausen fell and reformed? Just happened to me for the 1st
time and I'm not concerned (since it's still bubbling away) but am curious as to why. It
happened to me wit...

has the type of keg charger Yooper's talking about (I think). $19 plus S&H, but you need the
CO2 cartridges (sold on the same page). The 10-pack is probably enough to push 3 kegs, the
20-pack will d...

tight 5-gal pla...

I'm brewing beer for a good friend's wedding. I'm planning on bottling about 14 gals, which

Thanks again everyone for your time and thoughful comments. Scone, thank you - that's the quick

Wow - you're very helpful, thank you. I have quite a bit on my hands that I could use - half a
mayonaise jar full of solid, settled yeast. It sounds like all I'd need is to pitch 5 oz of

I'm planning on brewing this Saturday and will make a starter in the next few days. It's my
first lager and I want to make sure I pitch the right amount. The yeast I will use came from a
friend who wo...
