  • Posted in thread: How best to retrieve dryhop sock from full keg? on 03-18-2015 at 07:55 PM
    All good points and ideas.Probably won't be an issue to leave it in there as most of the
    friends and family prefer swill like Mich. ultra and Miller 64. (We really need a vomit smiley
    as an option). I...

    Without thinking too much about it I tossed my dry hops in a sack and dropped them into my keg
    10 days ago. Flavor is right where I think it needs to be. I popped the keg top and the sack is
    in there ...

    Just as a follow up....I kegged this last week (moving soon and don't want to move bottles) and
    set it at 10psi, let it clear, pulled my first glass 4 days later.WOW. Is all I can say.

    Don't take this as patronizing or insulting, OP, but how sure are you about what you are
    tasting? How is your sense of smell? I ask because when I'm a little stuffed or under the
    weather, hoppy beers ...

    Thanks for the input. I figured it might be ok because of the alcohol but added sulfite just to
    be sure.We shall see.Thanx again.

    So I transferred my JAOM to secondary earlier today. Started it back in March. It fermented
    beautifully and is crystal clear. Flavor is outstanding, even at this young age.I was just
    admiring the head...

    Well, it's kegged and carbed and tapped. I'm not tasting any off flavors so I guess it's ok.
    There are quite a bit of hops so if there is anything going on it may be covered up.I would be
    more concern...

  • Posted in thread: Gelatin vs. Cold Conditioning on 03-16-2013 at 10:34 PM
    I use a combo of the two. I keg my beer and crash it fo a couple days then add the gelatin to
    the keg. I also force carbonate and the beer is typically crystal clear by the time it's carbed
    up ( usual...

  • Posted in thread: All grain kit vs. extract kit? on 02-16-2013 at 07:38 PM
    A couple weeks ago I taught a friend to brew. We did an extract Irish red and then we did the
    same recipe all grain. They were Northern Brewer kits. Same yeast, fermented same temps and
    times, etc. Bo...

    Brewed a batch of Papazian's Goat Scrotum after tasting a friend's batch.His was delicious. I
    decided to use the "spruce essence" option. I made the decision that the recipe was wrong and
    the 1 teaspo...
