Posted in thread: Why doesn't the hop character of my beers taste the same as commercial beers on 08-15-2014 at 02:05 PM
Maybe it's worth asking about the condition of your hops? Do you keep them nicely frozen and
vacuum packed until you use them? And they're relatively new/fresh?[Edit: Another FL guy beat
me by a minut...

Posted in thread: Does pitching more yeast EVER work? on 06-19-2014 at 05:13 PM

Posted in thread: Extra kegs worth having on 04-14-2014 at 05:41 PM
I don't think any sane homebrewer has ever said 'boy, I wish I didn't have so many corny kegs'.

For what its worth, Home Depot also sells the SQ14 for 49.97. If you need 2, there's also a 10
off 100 coupon floating around right now, just need a couple pennies in filler items. Also, I
have 2 of t...

happen after cr...
