want to make this beer soon. but I am concerned about these 50 IBU even with a 1.060 OG,

for me)can anyone...

I have soft water in my area with a ph of about 8.5 and about 45 ppm of Carbonates. Should I
add Calcium Carbonate to the mash to get the right target ph? I don't use any buffer, and I
would like to u...

I have very chalky well water and am planning to use RO when I brew this this weekend. Would
you recommend adding anything beside calcium chloride and gypsum if using acidulated malt?I've
never used R...

so I'm not...

Looks great! Double everything for a 6-7 gallon batch? I'm looking to do a 6 gallon size and
have a good solid IPA on tap through my "seasonal" tapper.That should work OK, though you might
end up with...

I like the idea of these small 1.75 gallon kegs - especially when you consider their
portability and ease to use at small gatherings. I'm definitely excited to give them a try.
Hopefully Santa is watc...

Yes, you can connect or disconnect whenever you need to. Get a 5lb co2 tank, a regulator, one
of those suckers, and a picnic tap and you'll be good to go.Bottling small batches isn't that

cartridges?Just trying t...
