  • I've been fascinated with brewing for years. My first attempt was a 3 gallon batch of cherry mead years ago. It turned out way different that I thought it would, and that frustrated and intrigued me at the exact same time.

    My then girlfriend (current wife) then bought me the book that would change my life - The Brewmaster's Bible. That book began my journey into malty heaven and I haven't looked back!

    I'm changing my setup and getting comfortable with hitting the exact numbers I plan. I feel I'm really starting to get into a groove with brewing. Now I just need more room in my house for "beer porn" projects...

    I use 1/4 tsp per packet so 5 tsp would be enough for 20 packets. I don't know if there are
    different types of nutrient of what yopu recommended add ition would be.I read a few sources
    that said one t...

    Never had the need to use yeast nutrient until yesterday. I made a big DIPA (1.095) yesterday
    and was using 2 packs of US05. Went to rehydrate the yeast and threw in DPA-based yeast
    nutrient (5 tsp) i...

    I'll dial back the co2. Thanks all. Here's my last question. I've run dozens of kegs through
    this system on more or less identical settings. 48*, 15psi... This is the very first time this
    has happened...

    First off, I wouldn't say that there is a perfect setting for all beers. Perhaps how you have
    it set is just too much for this particular beer. What kind of stout is it? If it's a low
    gravity British/...

    OK, ill not discount carbonic acid, but I set the psi at 14 like I do for most of my beers. I
    didn't power charge the keg. It's not overly foamy and has the right amount of co2 "bite."A)
    How or why do...

    I kegged a stout on Friday. I've been tasting the beer every day to check the progression.
    Regardless, it's tasted really good every day, just low on carb. Today, however, as soon as I
    pulled the tap ...

    Do I shake the carboy after adding it?Any time I've ever added honey, I boil a small amount of
    water (pint or two- just enough to work with the honey) and add the honey to that boil. Mix the
    honey wel...

    This is a shot in the dark and may not apply but here goes. I used to use a particular brand of
    bottled water. One day I actually bought the water for drinking at my house and found that it
    didn't tas...

    I have noticed that a lot of the google answers point to older threads. It seems like this
    hobby changes quite a bit (secondary vs no secondary, late malt extract etc) so I know I've
    duplicated some q...

    I see absolutely no problem with a newbie posting any question whatsoever in the beginners
    forum. And at the same time, I find no reason for anybody to complain when a vet flames said
    newbie for askin...
