  • Worked for Pepsi Cola for almost 30 years in bottling production. Retired and somehow doing the same thing with beer. I like beer a lot more though.

  • Just started. my brother in law brewed and got me interested. I put it off since I did soft drinks for a living and it didn't seem like something to do on my off time. My son in law started brewing and got me to thinking about it again. and here I am and loving it.

    Definitely the longer the both fermenting and carving. Depends how much patience you have. The
    best brew I have down fermented for 3 months and carbed one month.

    Keep them at room temp for at lease two weeks so they carb properly. The yeast will just go
    dormant in the fridge. You can take the bottles out and once the beer warms the yeast will
    become active.

    You're fine, bottle it and put a case in a safe place -- drink one bottle a month and remember
    your wife -- a tribute brew.I'll do that. Thanks for the help to all of you.

    Started fermenting an Irish dry stout six weeks ago. My wife passed awat and I had no
    time/desire to bottle it til now. The airlock has been maintained throughout. What should I
    expect from this batch...

  • Posted in thread: New question about late extraction. on 08-12-2012 at 05:56 PM
    So you add the extract while the wort chiller is in the pot ? I've always put my wort chiller
    in the pot 15min before flame out to sanitize and do not remove it. Just trying to wrap my head
    around it....

    Those are glass and not plastic right? Not that it matters really, both can hold high co2 vols.

    They'll work fine. Coke's bottled at about 3.5 volumes so there is now problem with that. They
    are thicker than beer bottles as well, to hold higher co2 pressure.

    Try an Aussie light ale from midwest. It's very smooth and not to hoppy at all. Also, it has a
    nice light color to it. Use Irish Moss and it lightens up real well. Great beer for someone who
    isn't rea...

    Thanks for the info. I never could see how to dissassemble this one. I have another spigot that
    does easily come apart that I use for the most part but I'd like to be able to use the wine
