Posted in thread: force carbonation vs priming a keg with corn sugar on 03-19-2013 at 04:24 PM
I don't have the room in my fridge to let kegs sit connected to the gas to get carbonated. Also
tried forced methods and wasn't too happy with the results and used a lot of gas. So, I've been

I used the Bards Beer clone kit from Midwest Brew supply. It worked out well. My wife is the
gluten free person in our house. She forgets that beer is downstairs in the fridge cuz she is

I just started doing the yeast wash/harvest myself. I harvested some WL810 from my primary
after racking to secondary. I had at least 1.5 as much as your larger one on the left and it

Thanks all for the helpful tips on this subject! I gave it a try yesterday when transferring a
Cali Common to secondary. At first I thought I had too much trub in my mix, but looking at it

I've been using 3oz priming sugar for my 5gal kegs, but they are nowhere near ready in 10-14

Um, I never called it a "success" I said I am encouraged by the possibilities. However, as

without getting il...

I have been using Clarity Ferm in my last four batches of brew. The latest is a wonderful
California common. My very gluten intolerant wife finally gave it a try and has not had a bad
reaction. So far...

I brewed it. And the wife (she's GF) and I like it. Sorghum will never be like traditional
beer. It is what it is. But, I like the Bards more than an ale I made with other sorghum
extract. FWIW, I keg...
