Posted in thread: Dry hop in a Keg on 01-28-2016 at 06:30 PM
I also dry hop in my serving keg. What I do is take one of those SS mesh toilet supply lines
that people use in mash tuns all the time (I went with a 16"), fold and sinch closed one end
with a pliers,...

Here's my very first pellicle, using Yeast Bay's Saison/Brett blend in a saison. I'm so proud!

Well even if the beer wasn't done fermenting when you racked it to the keg, sitting in the keg
at 37°F for two months should have knocked all the yeast out of suspension either way. Judging
by it's ap...
Posted in thread: High ABV beer with high FG not carbing in keg on 02-01-2015 at 12:03 AM
Well nevermind, I finally got it to carb up. I set it to 30 psi again, unhooked it and rolled

Any update on your problem? Specifically a solution? I am currently having the same issue with

then 15 p...
Posted in thread: Why doesn't the hop character of my beers taste the same as commercial beers on 01-26-2015 at 06:49 PM

Sad collapse of a business with such potential. Does anyone know other suppliers who can store
your recipes in a profile and allow you to buy for the recipe ... i.e., if your recipe calls

Yeah, I should probably mention I used Blue Spruce tips, which were much more pungent than the
White Spruce tips that I also picked. I crushed a bunch of needles, smelled them, tasted them,
made a tea...
Posted in thread: Yeast starter using dry yeast?? on 01-08-2015 at 04:40 PM
For me, the one and only reason I ever use dry yeast over liquid yeast is so that I DON'T have
to make a starter. I plan my beer and when I order the ingredients I just make sure to order

Go for it. Learn from my mistake, you don't need a ton of cedar to get good cedar flavor and
aroma.Same with using spruce bough tips. I went with 2 oz last time I brewed it, it was pretty
