    Great Divide, Crooked Stave, and Jagged Mountain in Denver are near each other so you could

    Couple questions on a cold ferment. So I mix the dough and then immediately put it in the

    more time, or p...

    help avoid oxidation is a good thing.I would recommend completely filling the kegs with a
    Starsan and water ...

    started brewing but I have since learned the error of my ways.

    I did two recent batches one a Half batch in another pot and another BIAB in order to try and
    eliminate what is causing this. If the BIAB that I did in my regular aluminum kettle comes out
