    Generally speaking, you don't want the beer sitting on the trub for too long. I've had good
    results with two weeks of secondary fermentation during which time the oak cubes are added. I'm
    sure you cou...

    One week in primary then 2 weeks in secondary. It improves with age, so after keggimg or
    bottling, just be patient.

    We brewed this on Monday, while enjoying the last few bottles of the batch we made last fall.
    This beer ages very nicely.

    Looks good!

    That's not going to work long-term. It will try to equalize and cause some foaming as well as
    letting the beer go flat. The easy solution is simply to get longer lines. Try 10 to 12 feet of
    beer line ...

    I cut the pressure down to 7-8 psi, and all's right with the world! Thanks to all who weighed
    in.

    Ah hah! Mystery solved!That excessive foam is using up the CO2 that used to be dissolved in
    your beer. Hence, what's left tastes flat.Solve the foam problem and you'll be in the same
    carbonation reali...

    I've got my probe taped to one of the kegs underneath some insulation.Measuring just the air
    temp inside the chest freezer makes it difficult to get an accurate read on the beer temp, in
    my experience...

    I also like my beers a bit more carbonated than most guidelines. I prefer about 2.8 volumes in
    pale ales so that's closer to 16 psi at 40F in my case. It's also pretty common for the cheap
    secondary g...

    Just out of curiosity, when you (the op) draw a pint, do you get a good pour (a finger or two
    of head) or do you get a half glass of beer with the rest being foam?This goes to the question
    of perceive...
