  • Posted in thread: Help - Beer from 2011 in primary - how to bottle on 03-26-2016 at 04:58 AM
    So in April 2011, I started a smoked wheat beer. For reasons that are not important here, my
    life became complicated. The beer has sat in my basement since this time. I'm going to bottle
    it just to se...

    Have you bottled/kegged this yet? How did it come out?Yup bottled it. It tastes good, no off
    flavors. It's taking an extremely long time to carb. I don't know if I'll get proper

    I think they're selling those things for $20-30 a piece. Ridiculous for a seat clamp and not

    So, I currently brew 15 gallon batches and am wondering if anyone has 'gifted' beer to a

  • Posted in thread: Any money in balanced beers? on 04-07-2011 at 02:20 PM
    Well, I don't get out much anymore - work, family, etc. So when I do get a night out, I want to
    try something new, something I've never heard of. But when we have a party or family get

    Detroit/Michigan used to have Towne Club which was phenomenal. Faygo is still great - Red Pop

    years and it wa...

    One of my primaries has a spigot. I close the spigot and turn the valve sideways. Have never
