    So I'm new to kegging and I've got two kegs in the fridge right now. The problem is they're
    both sour, grapefruit tasting. The first keg, after lots of reading and others input, I chalked
    it up as too...

    I used Hallertauer and Saaz, but I did use safale us-05, fermenting at 64 ish degrees. I've

    other yeast t...

    So while I was transferring my beer to the keg, I pulled a sample off to taste. There was a
    strong grapefruit, citrus taste. Thought I'd keg it anyways. After a week of force carbonating,

    plate, and fe...

    Skunky sounds like. Different problem. Can you better describe the flavor? Is it wet card board
    or something e...

    I'm ready to admit defeat. I have a brew that fermented at too high a temperature. I was told
    to leave it be and let the yeast work. I left it in the carboy for 2 months and its been
    bottled for 3 mon...

  • Posted in thread: Which Hops? on 06-04-2012 at 01:51 AM
    Next year I plan to try my hand at growing hops. I know there are 40+ variety of hops, but if I
    was to get it down to 4 or 5, which hops would you recommend I grow? I live in Alberta, Canada
    with a li...
