Posted in thread: The "feel" of carbonation on 02-21-2015 at 04:18 AM
Seems simple enough: your beer is flatter. Whether you actually carbonated the beer to the same

I just purchased one of those aquarium pump aeration kits and used it for the first time

stepped away from a ...

Now I sound like a super noob and I guess I'm using terms incorrectly. I BIAB so for me, the

isn't it possible...

just dumped th...

Mine wasn't working at first, so I kept adding salt to the vinegar until I got the sizzle on
