    I'm thinking of doing a keezer spin off by basically making a lagering ferm chamber but having
    it meant for kegs. I was thinking of taking a mini fridge and building a custom chamber around
    it and fil...

    I planted 4 different rhizomes this spring: Nugget, Cascade, Centennial, and Kirrin Saaz. The
    only one to send up shoots has been the Cascade, none of the others are doing anything it
    seems. All the s...

    Hmm, never thought about the swamp cooler idea. That might work around summer time up here in
    Michigan when it can get pretty hot and humid.Right now I have the carboys sitting at about 68

    I've been rinsing after using one step before kegging anything or bottling. I think I'm just
    going to have to dedicate my basement to fermenting as it's the only place in my house that
    stays at a some...

    I always forget to make a starter until it's brew day and then it's too late. Rookie mistakes,

    This is where the equipment-building bug might bite you! I built a cheap fermentation chamber
    by taking the door off of an old dorm-fridge, the cube shaped one, and built a box around it
    out of pink f...

    Something that you should do to get healthy fermentations is oxygenate your wort. I didn't see
    that as part of your process. I started out dumping wort between to buckets to get oxygen into
    the wort. ...

    You can try and keep the beer in the primary for a while, like 3-4 weeks to give the yeast a
    chance to clean up its off flavors but be sure you locate it in the appropriate temperature
    range: 62-68F.A...

    Alright, I'll try those tips in the next batch.Now how do I get rid of the flavor besides
    sitting, sitting, and more sitting. Should I let them sit on the yeast at the 62-68 degree
    range for awhile lo...
