I keg all my beer and have been doing so for the past 2 years. Most recently I have started
bottling my beer off of the keg in order to submit bottles for homebrew competitions.

Posted in thread: After lagering there was a weird film on top. on 04-15-2014 at 08:45 PM
So after 2 weeks of lagering between 41-45 degrees I popped the top on the fermenter and found

Well just to report back I went ahead and adjusted the stout to 30 psi for about 10 days and it
