    Thanks! Seems like I shouldn't have vented mine down to 18 or so. Was leaving town for a couple
    days and just worried about the pressure building up to high! (sounds like it isn't much of a
    concern.)

    Wanted to thank all you guys for this long running thread. Recently made the transition to
    brewing in corny kegs and absolutely love it. Saves time (pre-carbonating), space, and overall
    more control.S...

    Also not a fan of FT, but their Hoptoberfest is pretty good (though nothing at all like an
    Oktoberfest.)

    Picked up a mini-keg ($18) of this beer. Was just hoping for a nice table beer (a munich helles
    style would have been great.) Instead I get a giant, virtually undrinkable DMS bomb. Beer
    should have a ...

    Of the Mikkeller, I really like 'I hardcore you'.

    Any ideas for a Pliny the Younger recipe?As far as PTE, I think it is a great beer for some
    reasons glossed over here. Like a good Belgian beer, it hides its alcohol content, and like few
    other IIPAs,...

    I visit the Woodland hills one frequently and feel they are priced competitively with the
    internet stores (which is to say, they area a little higher, but also they are LOCAL and have
    to pay for store...

    I'd never dump a beer after only letting it sit in a bottle for a week. There's no harm in
    letting them sit in the bottle for two more months and then trying them again. Crappy beers
    start to taste pr...

    I dunno man, if you know what is wrong with your beer (infection, procedural), I don't think
    dumping is the sin everyone else does. A lot of brewing is about learning. Drinking bad beer
    isn't learning...
