  • A couple of my neighbors got me intrested, but have since pretty much stopped. My wife bought me a kegerator conversion kit for the garage fridge last year. Since I don't have to wash bottles anymore I have been getting back into brewing. Judging by the way my friends emptied my kegs at a recent party I must be doing okay. I have a 2 keg set up with dual perlick faucets and a 20# CO2 tank that I keep outside the fridge. Continuing to add additional kegs & fermentors to my arsenal as well as building my first mash tun. Looking forward to trying some all grain brewing.

    The Roggen I used this in turned out a little thin for home brew, but was a really good session
    beer. My friends/neighbors really like it.

    I've only done 1 cider using champagne yeast; it took a very long time and came out very
    dry/tart. I had to keg it and after adding 2 cans of frozen apple juice concentrate it is
    actually pretty good ...

    I Brewed a Strong Golden with this yeast about 4 months ago; when I tasted it 2 months ago --
    strong bananas. It's been carbed sitting in a keg in my garage the last 2 months; hoping it has
    cleaned up...

    I just checked the SG. To my surprise it was 1.012 -- exactly what I was shooting for and the
    sample tasted good. It's cloudy and could stand to age, but I'm afraid that the yeast could
    continue to fe...

    I dropped 2 tablets of beano 6 days ago; so I'm sure the damage is done. Any chance I could
    salvage this batch by heating to 135 and back sweeten with a small amount of DME disolved in
    boiled water; o...

    I had a Roggenbier stick at 1.020 my LHBS said drop in some Beano. I did and there is a 1/4"
    layer of new dense foam on top now. Will be interesting to see how it turns out. Has anyone
    ever heard of o...

    I brewed a NB Strong Goldern Belgian 3 months ago -- gave it 1 month in the primary, a month in
    secondary and an additional month to clear in a carboy. When I kegged it a bout a week ago the
