    Have you read this Brülosophy exbeeriment?Now a healthy starter is always recommended, as many
    of us can testify after grossly underpitching in our early brewing endeavors. I pitched 1 vial
    of WLP802 ...

    Thanks for the input. It's a newly purchased used keg and despite getting new O-rings with it I
    didn't replace them because I was in a hurry. Guess this speaks directly to your Haste is the

    disconnect/bev line is on it, very very minimal dripage but when i took it out of the kegerator
    to finish the build a...

    ... this past weekend, I was attending a wedding. Hastily, I grabbed a chilled 2.5 gallon
    keg...Haste is your enemy. Or not finishing what you started because you get diverted. That's
    when you forget ...

    After the primary phase has subsided, your beer is still conditioning, the yeast cleaning up
    after herself after the binge. This phase may coincide with your dry hopping, let it be for a
    week. It may ...

    RefractometerThere's your answer! For refractometer readings you need to use the correction
    formula once alcohol is present. I use Brewer's Friend's calculator, but it is still better to
    use a hydrome...
