  • Started brewing in July of 2010. I enjoy it very much. I primarily do extract brewing with the occasional mini-mash. I am thinking of getting into all-grain some day but time doesn't allow at the moment.

    Degassing is a new one for me. I just started my first batch of mead last night. It's in a
    carboy... so stirring is out. Give it a shake daily? I've made plenty of beer but this is my
    first romp with ...

    Interesting idea, I would be nervous about the bacteria component of Kombucha in my keg. You
    would need to be very sure you cleaned it thoroughly before using the keg again. Also, I don't
    know how wel...

    wow, thank you. This is a major relief. I appreciate you looking at this and weighing in before
    I did something drastic!

    This is my first attempt at making Kombucha and there is a brown formation at the top that has
    me a bit nervous. It has been going for about a week. I fear it is mold, based on what you can
    see in the...

    Greetings HBT family,I am sure this has been covered many times over but I couldn't find it
    with a quick peruse. I have a new (to me) Corny keg and have put my beer into it, gotten it
    carbonated, and ...

    Alright,I have adjusted my recipe some. I have removed most of the mini-mash/steeping
    ingredients. I decided that the White Wheat and Munich would be more work than benefit with the
    amount of hopping ...

    thanks Bob.I will definitely be making a starter- and actually the honey and corn sugar are in
    there with the intent to dry the beer out. I also might take a lb of dry extract out to bring
