Posted in thread: New To Kegging! Educate me! on 04-28-2015 at 06:14 PM
Wanted to update those who helped me out! First beer has been carbonated and serving for a week
now and it's perfect! I used stainless MFL fittings on both the ball lock ends and the CO2
Posted in thread: Cost of bulk liquid yeast? on 04-27-2015 at 06:32 PM
Some micro-breweries will also sell or give away their excess yeast. I've gotten yeast from my
local macro before. Legally they probably can't sell it though.
Posted in thread: Just bottled an IPA that was in fermentor for 2.5 years on 04-27-2015 at 06:29 PM
I've had an IPA of mine that sat in the bottle for about 15 months and it was fine, no aroma of
course but the bitterness was nice and the flavor was good. I agree, this may not carbonate as
most of t...

Place your bucket fermenters or better bottle fermenters directly into the river once you have

especially if y...

I purchase hops by the 4 oz vacuum sealed package and store them in the freezer. They seem to
store very well in the vacuum package that they come in but once opened I transfer to a zip
lock bag and c...

I don't know how common it is, but Stone Enjoy By is a blend of MO and 2-row. It might work out

Posted in thread: Session IPA with one type of hops on 04-16-2015 at 07:36 PM
Thanks for the input. Does the Vienna alone give it a solid malty flavor, similar to a good
"normal" IPA? If so, what percent of the grain bill for the Vienna?The Vienna is definitely
noticable in a l...
