Posted in thread: Infection or bacteria in All grain beer bootle on 07-11-2014 at 06:42 PM
Does it taste sour or is it over-carbonated? Usually an infected bottle will show one or both
symptoms.What is Chemipro OXI? Is it a cleaner or a sanitizer? Remember that nothing is
both.From the soun...

I have a Maris/Simcoe SMASH right now in the fermenter. I keg it tomorrow. I made a 1-gallon

Good grief, where do you guys get your CO2? If I were to adopt such practices, I'd be filling
my 5 lb tank every month, at a cost of $35! And where do you get 5 gallons of sterilized water?

Yeah there's no way you should be losing that much to trub. I typically end up with 5.5 gallons

Well it appears that was the problem all along. Last Thursday I kegged an amber ale and it's
excellent. I purged the keg of CO2 using the method I described above and the beer still tastes
great. No h...
