Posted in thread: What's your brewery name? on 02-08-2013 at 10:37 PM
West Branch Brew & Tap. Kind of self explanatory. I live on the West Branch River and we
converted our kitchen into a tap room where I also brew. It's the same house I grew up in. I
try to name the be...

I just brewed up a 10.5 gallon ale this past weekend and put 5.25 gallons each into 2 primary
bucket fermenters and added a vial of White Labs WLP 051 to each after aerating both with

I was just sitting here thinking about this and it just struck me that I didn't put CO2 to the
keg at all to disperse any oxygen that would be in there after I transferred the beer. Is that
Posted in thread: Fermentation In Keg on 09-25-2012 at 02:20 PM
I just went to keg a 10 gallon batch into 2 kegs and noticed by the hydrometer reading that it
looks like it should ferment more. It'd been fermenting in the primary for a week and longer
than that in...

I just tried the swamp cooler idea since reading this. The real high temps are about over now

and the room where ...

I wasn't sure where this should go so I put it here. I was just thinking about making a single
tier brew structure after my last 10 gallon batch and the challenges it gave me. Having

One broken, probably due to letting PBW sit in it too long. It was empty and had been sitting
there some time since I last used it. Went to pick it up and the bottom stayed on the floor!

Posted in thread: Trying to Troubleshoot a Lingering Bitter Aftertaste on 04-11-2012 at 01:15 AM
I've had some brews I've done have a bitter after taste and can't figure out why. Right now I
don't think it's the water because I did a batch at my brothers place with him once using his
well water a...
