    One question though, the description says that if the atmospheric pressure outside the vessel
    gets higher than that inside, that it "filters in non-oxidized air." What exactly does that

    Here's a recipe that I based a brew off back in January: haven't tasted mine yet, but the

    I was leaning towards adding my own Brett, so thanks for the confirmation. I was just thinking
    about adding the campden, and wondering if that was a good idea. I'll go with more Brett and
    wait a few m...

    I have a used 10 gallon american oak bourbon barrel. I aged one beer in it for 4 months. I then
    refilled it with a Great Divide Yeti inspired RIS back in August. I decided to add some
    chocolate powder...

    Pete,Next time you need a quick beer try a German hefe. Ferments fast, usually 5-7 days. There
    is no need for cold crashing/clearing as the beer is typically served cloudy. The yeast for
    this does not...
