    Howdy folks...I want to get into kegging my beer and have decided to use Corny kegs. I am
    looking at some on Amazon and have noticed that some are "Ball-Lock" and some are "Pin-Lock".

    Folks,I am using Wyeast 3944 for a Belgian wit and have been reading up on this yeast to see
    what to expect. I have seen many mentions of the yeast slowing down and attenuating very

    Folks, I started a robust porter a couple weeks ago with an OG of 1.07 using a smack pack of
