  • Posted in thread: OBK (Ontario beer kegs) Brewpot on 11-28-2015 at 07:35 PM
    I have one of those pots and it is well made. One problem that I noticed is that mine developed
    a rust spot after I left oxyclean sit in it over night. Reckon that was an error on my part.

  • Posted in thread: My cider tastes like riesling! on 11-26-2015 at 07:44 PM
    Several years ago I made a batch of cider that also resembled nice Riesling, nothing fancy like
    an auselese, but a serviceable thirst quencher. My secret was using a blend of russet, orange
    pippin and...

    Grommets are available on eBay. However, they are called gaskets.

    @ricshayneNo you do not dry hop this beer. It is a finished wort that you add yeast to. Saying
    that, you don't live in Canada do you? The cheapest 12 oz bmc brew around here is about $2.00 a
    bottle. T...

    I am currently working my way through a batch, and am very impressed with the product. It helps
    to let it warm up a bit in the glass to fully develop its flavors. All in all a fine brew at a
    very reas...

    I regularly use flip tops, which are donated by my son-in-law after having sat in less than
    ideal conditions. I have found that a soak in oxyclean followed by a mild vinegar rinse and a
    session on the...

  • Posted in thread: Did I leave my Festa Brew too long in Primary? on 05-29-2015 at 04:16 PM
    There have been times when I have left my Festa brew in the primary for up to two months. No
    problems noticed. You should invest in a sealed bucket with airlock for more predictable
    results. Loose lid...

    Ontario Beer Kegs is well regarded. It is in Mitchell, Ontario in the middle of nowhere, but
    they do mail order. If I rightly recall, they have flat rate shipping across Canada. Expensive
    for me since...

    I agree the generic instructions are terrible. However, following the standard 3-4 weeks in
    fermenter plus 3 weeks to bottle condition works well. I would watch the sugar addition; I use
    dextrose, bec...
