    No the keg needs to be cold.You would use the PSI that results in the desired volumes or grams
    per liter of c02 at the temperature the beer is at. Just like the set it and forget it method,
    only faste...

    What's the process for this? Is it like using an aeration stone for pre-fermentation
    oxygenation of wort, where you just leave it in at the of a wand in an open container? What PSI
    would I want to use...

  • Posted in thread: Does carbonation hold well in 2 L bottles? on 10-02-2010 at 05:03 PM
    Are there smaller bottles (1.5 or 1 Liter) that have the same opening size as a 2 Liter bottle
    that would work with a carb cap?I've found the small 20oz soda bottles fit, as long as they're

    This was my very first all-grain batch, and the sample I just tasted after force carbing seems
    like it's one of the best I've made. Ran into the following minor problems:1) Huge grain bill,
    and I wasn...

    It looks like the fermentation on this is just about done: it's dropped clear in the fermentor
    and I'd like to get it off the yeast bed. I just can't decide if I want it still or sparkling.
    I'm person...

    I recently made my first batch of mead, a prickly pear mead (roughly following the recipe I
    found here). I went easy on the honey (10lbs), and put in just under 6 pounds of peeled/boiled
    prickly pear ...

    Don't give up on it, go and buy one more vial of WLP 500, get a yeast starter going. Add 2 cups
    of sugar and 4 cups of water, add the recommended amount of (for your batch size) nutrient and
    energizer...

    It's done. My original OG was 1.093 (I added a bit of dextrose to boost the ABV). Also had
    yeast energizer in by the end of the boil, so that shouldn't be the problem. I'll see how it
    progresses then ...

    For you, try this. Open the Lid, let fresh air get in there. Now put cap back on and tip it
    back and forth to aerate it. My guess is a weak aerate. If it doesn't take off in a day, then
    add nutrient a...

    I had this fermenting for an entire month at 68F, and when I just checked it it was at 1.044
    still... and I used two entire vials of WLP500...I whirled it around and left it at 75F. If it
    doesn't pick...
