    I may lose the maize. I had intended it to lighten the body and give a bolder hop impression.
    Carapils was intended for better head retention. I'm about 50/50 at this point.

    Okay folks, looking to do a simple, clean, drinkable beer for a wedding coming up as a gift to
    the bride. I am looking to do an amped up APA/IPA. shooting for something drinkable, not
    overwhelmingly b...

    got it. The airlock is still active so it isn't as if the gas has nowhere to go. I'll switch to
    a blowoff to see whether that encourages better activity. So back to my original question,
    though; what ...

    I can rig one up. I have used them in the past but just switched to Better Bottles so I don't
    have all the pieces I have used in the past. What effect is my current setup having on my beer?
    Any idea? ...

    Brewed a Quad/Strong Dark this past weekend and hit great numbers; 6 good gallons at 1.094.
    Pitched a three liter starter of WY3522 and the thing went off like a rocket. After 24 hours of
    blowing off ...

  • Posted in thread: Brewing with citrus syrup on 11-30-2011 at 12:53 PM
    Sorry to say that I never ended up brewing with it. What I should have done with the syrup (I
    no longer do) was prime my beer with it. The smell and taste of the fruit is very sweet and
    floral, not at...

    I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but I need help kegging in a sankey keg. I am
    planning to condition my brew in a corny but in order to serve it on New Years, it has to go
    into a sixt...

    Thanks all. temperature is over 85. I can't be more specific than that since the little tape
    thermometer doesn't go any higher. I am pleased with the smell/taste so no alarm bells. The
    carboy is actua...

    Brewing a saison with Wyeast 3724 and having the classic challenge of a stuck/slow primary.
    This morning, I was hovering around 1.018 after two weeks in the primary. So should I let it go
    or can I pit...

    Thanks BBL. You are correct. I get great results and decent efficiency from my meager 10gal
    cooler. It is the Blichman that I am having trouble with. It may be a matter of insulating the
    unit but I ju...
