    ABOUT ME

  • Married and live in the Greater Green Bay area. Love sports, grilling, and brewing.
  • Grilling and Brewing Beer
  • Contract Analyst

  • None at the Moment
  • Started with Mr. Beer while using the Palmer "How to Brew" principles. Really have enjoyed it and my best work has been a Cranberry Light.
  • I hope to graduate up to grain/steeping (BIAB) and/or start doing 5 gallon batches with bigger equipment by the spring/summer of 2012 --- I have just made this transition actually. Long term I would love to find a niche in my current market selling my beer, but there will be many obstacles. But god willing I do have time on my side.

    Just bought one too. PLan to use it Labor Day weekend, hope it works well. Instructions do say
    servicing pressure should be around 5 psi, so down. If I force carbonate the keg, do I need to
    bleed the ...

    I brewed a 2.25g batch (American Wheat style) and added about 3 oz. of Rose Water at bottling.
    I actually kind of like the beer on hot days. Its like a very strong floral hopped beer in my
    opinion, bu...

    Thanks for the information. I will check to see. If I don't plan to use the outlet on the left,
    do I need to add a shut-off valve or will having the adjustment nut to off be sufficient?

    So all of mine actually carbonated pretty well and I did not have any issues with the capsule
    not dissolving. If I had one complaint I feel the trub that would normally stick pretty firm to
    the bottom...

    I'd recommend shut off valves, and more specifically shut off valves with integrated check
    valves. Liquid can back up into the gas line if the keg is full and at a higher pressure than
    the regulator. ...

    I would recommend against the ready-to-go pumpkin pie spice mix if that's what you meant. They
    tend to contain sulfides which will lend a sulfur flavor/aroma to your beer. Try using the raw
    McCormick ...

    I came up with a really good method using canned pumpkin to avoid any problems with runoff or a
    stuck sparge. I just dissolved the canned pumpkin pie filling in my mash water while it was
    heating up...

    How often do you stir the mash when making a pumpkin beer? Generally I only do 1-2 times in 90
    minutes for a like blonde ale. Does the pumpkin require more stirring?

    Received some older CO2 regulators from a relative that gave up on fountain soda. I gladly
    took. Both are dual-regulators, so have the 2 output posts. I bought a new washer for the
    connection to the C...

    If I use Pumpkin, I will use canned. What does it really add in addition to the pumpkin pie
    spices? My wife really wants me to make a pumpkin ale but the stories of long sparges, stuck
    sparges, etc is...
