    ABOUT ME

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

    Glad to find this thread. I also have been intrigued by these. I do AG batches but kept my
    original Mr. Beer keg (2.25G~) for small batches. The 2.5G keg would be perfect to just keg
    instead of bottli...

    I think I will just skip the 90 altogether. I didn't know if 0.5# which would be approximately
    5% of the grain bill would make a huge difference or not. I'd rather not risk it. I think I may
    go straig...

    If I substitute 0.5# Caramel 90 for 1# Caramel 40 for an IPA recipe, will it have major effects
    on the taste? SRM wise will be about the same. I have 90# on hand and would rather use that if
    possible ...

    It worked pretty well to follow up. Put the CO2 at 4-5 psi, kept keg in a tub of ice, beer was
    cold, and depending on who was pouring there was minimal to average amount of foam. Once you
    figured the ...

    I think I will definitely burp it a few times. I have it set at like 14 psi since last Thursday
    and its about carbonated. Just tried a pint and there is head. Looking to take this to a party
    on Thursd...

    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Rose beer?? on 08-26-2015 at 12:53 PM
    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?
