  • Posted in thread: Just got a Festa Brew West Coast IPA kit today, has anyone tried it? on 08-23-2015 at 08:35 PM
    @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...

    No, no, no, no. You're doing it all wrong. For the true winery experience, you have to book a
    flight to Frankfurt and from there to the Wine Route in southern Germany. This trail has
    wineries about ev...

  • Posted in thread: Grain Storage - Food-Safe Buckets on 08-27-2014 at 09:04 PM
    I store my grains in a 5 gallon plastic pail which I recycle from wine making. I get fresh
    juice for my wines and after transferring to my fermenter, rinse the pail thoroughly, recover
    and store until...
