What about your aging practices when kegging?After primary, do you put it in the fridge and in

So, my last three beers have all been rather bland after 4-5 days in the keg, but after 3ish
weeks and beyond, they opened up and tasted as they had, or better, from the fermentation
vessel.I've been ...

For anyone that cares, I was able to "fix" my beer.It's been suggested that an infection
(gusher to be exact) or oxidation was the culprit, and neither make sense. I don't see how a
gusher infection c...

I suppose that makes the most sense. I've just never had a beer go from great to flavorless in

I just got my second keg not too long ago and I struggled with this initially, but I settled on

Posted in thread: Splatter screen to filter hops from boil? on 01-31-2011 at 11:36 PM
I tried a splatter screen once and I don't recommend it. When I dumped the cooled wort into the
carboy (splatter screen over a funnel) the screen clogged as soon as I got to the hops, and
since I wasn...
