    There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing that CO2 coming out of the blow off on a new batch or seeing a bottle carbonate!

    Unless you are in a hurry, you will make better beer and be at FG 99.99% of the time by letting
    it primary ferment for 21 days before even checking it. I don't even measure FG anymore. I just
    let them...

    I would mash 6 lbs of the 2 row and then use about 4 lbs of light DME (dried malt extract) to
    make up the difference. DME will put more fermentables per lb into your wort than equal weight
    of malt bar...

    That method is fine. I have used that method of harvesting for at least 20 -25 batches and all
    turned out great. I always do a starter though unless the yeast was harvested within a week of

    There is no benefit to using Centennial to bitter with, it usually costs 2 time more than
    Columbus. Just use all columbus to bitter and add it all at the same time, either FWH or at 60
    and run the IBU...

    UPDATE: So I disconnected my gas line from the keg, cleaned and reconnected and put it back on
    gas for 24 hours and now I have carbonated beer and I backed it down to 8psi for serving and
    it's pouring...

    1/4" ID beer line should almost never be used in a home system. It takes almost 4 times as long
    a line to get the proper pressure drop vs. a 3/16" ID line. Your line is definitely not
    "balanced correc...

    See my responses in REDHow are you serving the beer, picnic tap or regular tap? How long is
    your beer line? Is the beer line and tap cold? Are you getting foamy pours, that are then flat
    when the foam...

    With only four batches under your belt and the tank almost empty, I would think you had a slow
    leak. I've carbonated about 20 2.5 gallon batches over the past year and a few months and I
    still have CO...

    I've been researching this and only thing I can think of is that I either have a problem with
    my regulator or CO2 tank. I have a 5 gallon corny keg on the gas right now at 25psi at 35*F.
    It's been on ...

    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
    regulator end...
