    fire dept is a good idea. also thought to take it to a dive shop. i imagine divers deal with
    the same stuff when they go on scuba trips

    yea its empty. but the airline said the valve needs to be disconnected so they can
    "look/inspect" the tank.

    It's very young but with that OG, 2lbs of sugar is probably 25% of the fermentables. for a
    belgian that probably would have been fine but IPA you shoulda kept it to a pound and used more

    might be cool to blend them to see what you can come up with if the crabapples are too tart and
    the costco is too beerySo I brewed this before but I used some crabapples and got a pretty
    tart, cidery ...

    cider/beer with a lit...

    that should be fine. I live in a hot climate and keep my fermenter cool for about a week or so
