    I'm currently having to do my fermentation off-site (in my mother-in-laws) basement due to
    temps at my house getting too hot in the summer. I've just started kegging and have a 2 keg
    kegerator set up ...

    I've just pulled two pints off my first ever kegged beer (a big porter) and it's really
    sedimenty and looks a lot like chocolate milk. Is it normal that the first couple are like that

    Thanks for the info.I think those conicals samc posted might work but would also like to know
    if anyone else has used them? Also, why does no-one make/use the screw lid barrel types here in

    I'm in the process of upgrading to 10 gal batches.I don't want to spend that much on either the

    instead of glas...

    Well, first make sure your fermentation is finished at that 2 week mark.If so, then transfer
    over to sanitized keg etc.Hit it with some CO2 and then pull relief valve a few times to expel

    HiI'm almost done. Got the fridge to fit both my corney kegs, got the regulator, kegs and all
    the trimmings. A friend just gave me a huge CO2 tank which I was more than happy to accept.
    Thing is, I wa...

    I saw it at Safeway in Chico for 9.99 a bottle and at the Mangrove Bottle Shop for 7.99. Guess
    which I bought?Might have to swipe a couple of those glasses too!

    Did it start at all? What temp was it kept at before your brought it up to 65? What was your
    OG?No, it didn't start at all. It was at about 50-55F but I think it might have gone below that
    during the ...

    Me and my partner in all things beer just brewed a batch of beer up at Lake Tahoe, Ca (about
    6000ft) and brought it home with us to the valley (200ft) to ferment etc. We just wanted to
    brew a batch up...
