    Thanks BigB. The description of your wheat beer (putrid puke) sounds like the colour of our
    brew :)

    So a buddy and I made our first all-grain brew yesterday. We did a 1/2 batch (~ 10L / 2.5G)
    using 2.5lbs of 2-row, 2.5lbs of pale malt and 0.5lb of oat flakes.Our mash temperature got a
    bit high on us...

    Is your hydrometer calibrated ? How much does it read in distilled water ? Also, have you
    compensated for wort temperature ? What yeast did the kit come with ?You can expect beer that's
    for sure.The h...

    Okay - so we took a hydrometer reading and the gravity of our beer is 1.005 (after 2 weeks in
    primary).From the FestaBrew website for the Pale Ale ( 1.0500 – 1.0508, FG: 1.0124
    – 1.0132We...

    CO2 is more dense then O2 and will 'sit' in the keg and not allow much O2 back in. Random
    currents / air movement will allow some O2/air back in but the majority will be CO2. The final
    purging will ge...

    Were did you get the Festa Brew in Ottawa? I want to pick up some for the winter but the
    closest place I can find it is Montreal.A friend and I know someone in this group in Ottawa:
    joined up and we...

    Fill the keg with CO2 and bleed it off through the release valve before racking the beer into
    the keg. That way you have a nice CO2 blanket on top of the beer that minimizes oxygen pickup
    from splashi...

    Thanks for the responses. I figured I'd be told to get a hydrometer :)We've got a hydrometer
    but we don't have a beer thief. Though, I suppose we could simply use a racking cane and siphon
    it. Or, go ...

    I'm new to brewing and have a Festa Pale Ale in the primary fermenter (using a carboy as
    primary and not planning to move to a secondary). It's been in the primary for almost 2 weeks
    and I'm still see...
