    Young beer can always smell a little funky, and banana is pretty common in my opinion. I think
    you are fine. Yes, letting the beer sit on the yeast will clean it up. Carry On!

    If you put sanitizer into your water to make sanatized water, then it will be killing all of

    The main difference between just splitting the gas line after the regulator with a manifold or

There are no badder beers, just better beers.
