    Ah yes! I recognize those zombie strawberries! Please tell me how you like the 45 min Cascade
    hops in your brew. They are my go-to hops variety for my IPAs and Sierra Nevada clone but it
    sounds like i...

    darren h-Did your tap adapter come with seals or gaskets? I had a similar problem just last
    week when my keg began leaking from the connector. As it turned out, the black rubber gasket
    fell off on the...

    SilvaRizla-I highly recommend checking out Bluelinebrewer’s thread on his killer Strawberry
    Blond. I have used that recipe more than 8 times with great success. Also, your friends will
    completely dig ...

    Bryan-Yuck! That sucks, man. Without a doubt, you have something funky going on. My first
    question (bear with me) is did a cat in fact pee in your brew? Hey, it could happen. The only
    reason I ask is ...

  • Posted in thread: Can/When will bottled beer go bad? on 07-05-2015 at 05:44 PM
    Skillafizer-The answer depends on a lot of other variables. First, and perhaps most important,
    variable is your sanitation method. If you run a clean, well sanitized brewing process, your
    beer will ha...

    1BigBear-Nice! Here's my $0.02:I started on Mr. Beer so the one who taught me just halved the
    standard 5 gal recipe. Seriously, everything was halved with the exception of the yeast. See,
    back then I ...

  • Posted in thread: Sulfur Smell ???? on 02-21-2014 at 09:12 PM
    MSamu-Don't fret too much. Some yeast strains do produce more sulfur smell than others. Each
    time I use California Ale Yeast (YLP-051 IIRC) I get a sulfur smell. You are correct; lager
    yeast is notori...

    I know it has fallen out of style in the past 10 years but have you thought about siphoning
    your brew into a secondary for some additional clearing time? If not, the same process takes
    place in your b...

  • Posted in thread: Cleaning Mistake on 11-02-2013 at 03:17 PM
    I have been there too. I used apple-scented Dawn. Not only did my head retention suck, but I
    also had a nasty apple-scented off-flavor. Yuck!!!I switched to unscented dish soap and super
    hot water. I ...

  • Posted in thread: Fruit extract question on 11-02-2013 at 03:05 PM
    You want to add it to the bottom of the bottling bucket with the priming sugar. Then siphon
    your beer on top of the mixture. This mixes it evenly without agitating or adding air to your
    brew. There sh...
