Posted in thread: Fermentation Started Fast on 08-31-2016 at 01:28 AM
I agree that the fermentation was probably on the warm side, which creates the potential for
ester production. Not everyone (and I'm mostly including myself here, but I would guess there
are others) i...

+1 to off-gassing. What was your grain bill? 1.010 would be 82% apparent attenuation, which is
on the higher end. I'll bet the yeast is done, but if you leave it for another week maybe
you'll get luck...
Posted in thread: Cleaning new keg set up on 08-29-2016 at 01:25 AM
When I bought mine, and they were purchased new, I didn't go to the trouble of precleaning
them, and I didn't have any problems with them. If I had bought them used (and I'm not sure you
did, but just...

Posted in thread: Have bourbon barrel, but I don't like big imperial stouts. What should I do? on 02-18-2016 at 11:51 AM
Do you have any interest in a bourbon barrel porter? Those are pretty common. I recently brewed
one with a target OG of 1.060. I missed and it came out at 1.056. It's still aging at the
moment, but I ...
Posted in thread: Kegerator door won't stay sealed completely on 02-17-2016 at 01:22 PM
While not very aesthetically pleasing, I've seen someone use a ratchet strap to tighten a seal
on an upright freezer. They just wrapped it around the entire freezer and tightened it up. I'm
not sure i...

Let us know how it turns out, I'd be interested to see what happened. This whole thing was an
exercise in patience, so lesson learned!I packaged on day 14. My OG was 1.050 and FG was 1.011

factor is the yeast. We can argue about recipes, or mash temperatures, or hot side aeration, or
