  • I've been Home Brewing since 2004 thanks to a friend in Vermont, and I didn't drink beer until I turned 23 when a friend introduced me to good beer. Favorite beer - Switchback Ale Favorite braggot - Magic Hat Champagne cask aged braggot - I drank it on a tour of the brewery, it never made it to bottles because the abv was too high. Magic hat released a braggot the next fall, but it was boring, ever since then I've been trying to come up with a good braggot recipe.

    I would just disconnect the gas and vent it through the PRV every 24 hours until you get to an
    acceptable pressure; Maybe check it on day by pouring a pint, and then every day after that; or
    you could...

    If my wife was okay with kitchen taps I would reduce the amount of taps I want to 3 (current
    goal is 5, I'm at 2ss 1 picnic). Looks pretty cool.

    how about an amber ale or pale ale with some floral hops like centennial, cluster or cascade -
    something "simple yet elegant" so you can appreciate it while staring off into the woods (I sit
    on my bac...

    I'm going to echo Jonnyrotten; don't build your system around the wrong keg - a 15 gallon keg
    can be re-purposed into a keggle. I do 5-6 gallon batches and do back to back brew days to
    bring me up to ...

    oooh 10 gallon batches; I want to move up to 10 gallon batches but the funds just aren't there
    right now (7 month old son gets all the money). I have to settle for 2 x 5 gallon staggered
    brews on the ...

    I've become a really lazy brewer (except with sanitation, I'm anal about that).I have not taken
    OG or FG readings on my past five batches; 1 was a blonde, 1 was a cider and 3 were wine; I
    just wait a ...

    Producers typically have a suggested shelf life for grain if stored properly. I personally
    draft out my brewing year before ordering grain, then I purchase enough to make it through the
    year via group...

  • Posted in thread: Save Some Wort for Stuck Fermentation? on 03-19-2015 at 11:51 AM
    I third the freezing suggestion.Think of it this way, is there anything you would keep in the
    fridge for three weeks that doesn't have preservatives in it or isn't highly acidic/basic?
