    How clean is your beer line? If you use a tap, is it clean? Gelatin will drop that yeast into a
    nice little pile on the bottom of your keg.

    I pitched a boat load of WLP833 and my lag time was 70 hours. It took 17 days to get down to
    1.013 from 1.052. I pitched at 46 F. My usual yeast ( WLP940 ) has a lag time of around 30
    hours which I st...

    use a clea...

    I used JB Weld with my electrical box. I covered the box with a plastic cover. I check it often
    for leaks, but none so far. I used the foam gasket that came with the element. I figured if it

    I like the cream ale blend. I used Pils malt along with some Carapils and Hallertauer. I was
    getting some sulphur when I kegged but it went away in a couple of weeks. The only thing that
    was odd was t...

    Group buys are the way to go. We have a spring and fall group buy here in Ontario. $37.00 for
