  • Posted in thread: AIH Kegs on 07-31-2015 at 12:32 AM
    I have bought 6 kegs from AIH - all pin locks. 2 of the "better" used kegs and 4 loose handle,
    etc. All are great. All nice, US-made kegs. All but one were nice on the inside. One had
    corrosion on a w...

    Just kegged my third batch of this. English Roasted Barley (Bairds - 500L) and English
    Chocolate (Bairds 450-500). In my first batch, I used domestic, which is lighter. I have a few
    pounds of domestic...

    Diggin this up.How was this?Not as good as the original. I think the lower Barley decreased the

  • Posted in thread: Anyone brewed an IPA with EKG ? on 06-17-2015 at 12:38 AM
    I just dry-hopped a batch on Saturday. The only real difference between the original recipe and
    mine is that I used West Yorkshire Ale (1469). My OG was 3 points low, but it finished at
    1.008, 7 point...

  • Posted in thread: Almost ready to start kegging, a couple more questions/concerns. on 06-17-2015 at 12:30 AM
    Question 1 - You can take a fully carbed keg off the gas for a few days without concern.
    Question 2 - Not so sure on that one. The problem I see is that it is tough to seal the keg
    without pressure. S...

  • Posted in thread: Need some advice on 06-15-2015 at 01:28 AM
    I have the basic cooler, propane, 10 gallon pot all grain set up. I have about 55 all grain
    batches under my belt. About 15 extract. From my perspective:Why do you brew? For me, I brew
    because I like ...

  • Posted in thread: How long does it take you ? on 06-15-2015 at 01:18 AM
    5 - 5.5 from start to finish on brew day. You can add to this about 45 minutest I spend the
    night before to draw and treat water, gather and check equipment, etc. I'm kinda slow, I think.

  • Posted in thread: IPA brewers, do you harvest yeast? on 06-12-2015 at 09:31 PM
    Generally, no. I use mostly US-05 for my IPAs, so it is relatively inexpensive and it is super
    convenient. I did harvest my Conan and intend to harvest it again. I also harvest top cropping
    yeast when...
