  • 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
    batch of it a few months ago and it was excellent. Looking forward to a whole keg of it.I was
    also planning...

    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?
    Do you act...

    I just went through a months-long ordeal where kegged beers weren't tasting right. It turned
    out to be caused by not purging the keg adequately before filling it. IPAs were the most
    affected by this.W...

    Yeah there's no way you should be losing that much to trub. I typically end up with 5.5 gallons
    in the kettle and just under 5 by the time it gets to the keg.

    I use Lagunitas/SN bottles all the time with my wing capper. No problems.

    If I had a way to hook up my fermenter to a CO2 source that would be a great way to fill kegs
    but I don't.What I do:- Clean and sanitize keg- Fill with sterile water (the Glacier vending
    machines ster...

    Extract brews tend to not attenuate as well as all-grain brews. Do bottle conditioned
    commercial beers have the same result?

  • Posted in thread: Efficiency too high? on 07-07-2014 at 04:45 PM
    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...
