Are you chilling the keg to serving temp before you try bleeding it and hooking it up to the
gas?No, or at least not the last few times. I definitely don't hook it up to the gas right away
since it ha...

When I have a brew ready to keg and no room in the keezer I will use about 2 oz of priming
sugar with 1 pint of water (boiled) to naturally carbonate it. I don't do this often. The last

I was thinking the fact that the MoreBeer models come in 8 and 15 was a drawback. For a 5g
batch it seems like a 10g kettle should be fine. I have an old 8g kettle that I use for the

Those are good suggestions. Sadly I have an Irish Red Ale that I just kegged, and I have a

I recently tried a LHBS that I don't normally frequent and they had a peat smoked malt that
smelled so interesting that I wanted to try and use it in a recipe. But I'm not sure what to
