    Try putting a piece of sanitized copper in the keg for a week or two. You could use a length of

    You all are going to drive yourselves nuts trying to get a good seal on your conical. For the
    record I've brewed 100's of gallons in mine without one bubble in the blow off. Never had one
    bad batch, a...

    Never dump it until you've tried everything at your disposal. Right now I'd say that's time.
    Leave it in the primary for the full 3 weeks, 4 wouldn't hurt. Then package it and forget about
    it for a mo...

    then package it. If everything else is right the beer will be fine... Cheers!!!

    I've heard of stressing yeast to create esters in Wheat Beers but never heard of doing it with

    Never having been in those shoes all I can offer is what I'd try. 1) Remove rubber washers. 2)
    Soak with diswasher detergent or Oxyclean for a few days as mentioned above. 3) Rinse. 4) Place
    the bottl...

    I typically leave it for one week. Temperature is whatever it is in my basement in Michigan
    (usually around mid 60's to 70.Okay, I think you're tasting/feeling diacetyl. Google it and see
    if it fits. ...

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
