    Kegged the beers a 3 days ago and carbonated. Had a couple of friends over while brewing today

    Beersmith calculated the OG to be within the guidelines at 1.056, i think I messed up the mash
    a little because normally I hit the calculated OG fairly closely.The additions were at the
    beginning of b...

    I let the first dry hops sit for four days, now have split the batch into 2.75 gal each, then

    For a heat source I have used wet/dry heating pads wrapped around the carboy and held in place

    I am using a 6 in duct (actually a sidewall thimble in place from a wood stove chimney), so a
    dryer flap won't work. All the sealing vent caps I have found are really flimsy, light weight,
