    Sounds like my best bet is to grab an extra long hose for the picnic tap, allow the keg to sit,
    settle and chill for as long as I can before serving (best I can hope for is about 5 hours),
    and then po...

    I wouldn't vent the keg, but I would make an extra long party tap, 12' of 3/16th or so. Better
    a slower pour than foam. Take the charger and 2-3 extra bottles. From my experience, you

    Thank you all for the quick advice. If it was just taking homebrew to a party I wouldn't worry

    been rea...

    I found a bee in my primary while racking to the secondary. I took a hydrometer reading and
    drank the sample...not too bad! definitely hazy and has a little bit of a funky smell but I'm

    I've been using Nottingham ale yeast almost exclusively for the past 6 months (about 10
    batches) with no problems. Always quick to start and tears my typical ale worts apart in a day
    or so, whether I ...

    I used a vial of WLP051 pitched directly (with no starter) into an all grain IPA OG 1.058 and
    it took exactly 50 hours to show any sings of life. It's bubblin' away now but I was sure
