    Wow yeah- didn't realize I forgot to come back with the results. Unfortunately it's been too
    long to be specific but honestly I don't remember that brew all that well. Don't think it
    turned out very m...

    Coy94,It's a slow leak in the keg. The leak's slow enough that it couldn't build up the
    pressure to carbonate, but still keeps just enough in straight from the bottle to push it
    through the tap. Speak...

    I thought that didn't sound right. 10 lbs, gotcha. Went the wrong way with the multiply/divide.

    I'm thinking of brewing this on Sunday (extract version). However, my LHBS does not carry DME
    and only sells LME. Do you think the usual conversion of 0.8 * DME will be fine here, or are
    they specifyi...

    Update on my caraway experiment. Just kegged the pumpernickel porter a few days ago and it's
    just starting to carbonate (just my luck ran out of co2 that day). Anyway, cold but flat, it
    came out well....

    Well I hadn't heard how any of this turned out, so I went into this semi-blind. I combined a
    few recipes and techniques found here and across the interwebs, plus a few actual pumpernickel
    bread recipe...

    ahhh yes, i.e. pumpernickel. Thinking along those lines, that sounds pretty fantastic!I have a
    pumpernickel porter "experiment" in the primary right now myself. I started with a rye stout
    base and wan...

  • Posted in thread: Kegging: you all were right on 10-17-2011 at 12:22 AM
    My favorite part of switching to kegging was not spending all that time cleaning and sanitizing
    bottles... I absolutely hated that part of the process. Now with that time freed up, I can get
    to drinki...

  • Posted in thread: Seriously? Give me a break with the hops already. on 04-04-2011 at 01:54 AM
    I don't get it. I like a good IPA, but these over the top, hopbomb, I can cram more hops in a
    beer than you can, offerings are not my cup of tea.I'm learning that somewhere between an IPA
    and a Double...

    This looks like a project worth working on... I'm definitely in love with the idea of this
    beer! I like beer, pecan pie, bourbon, bourbon pecan pie... What could be better?I wonder if
    maybe another wa...
