    Ha! You worry to much. As long as your temps were good, this just means you had a good ferment
    and nothing to worry about.

    I love that yeast and I use it a lot in saisons. You just have to get it hot and it does its

    I recently got a keezer, and it has improved my beer drastically. However, I used a blow off

    Kegged a Belgian Golden ale just brewed with pilsner, sugar, and Saaz, and an English Bitter.

    What is this crap? “Hallelujah, brother! More beer now!”Please. Why are any of us in a rush to
    get a beer on the table? If I want a beer right now that tastes like or better than the average
    beer, I c...

    What's up, dude? Yeah you do! And I get to taste yours!

    It turns out really well, and I got an OG around 1.065. I changed a few things, like using
    Anchor's Yeast (California V) and using Maris Otter instead of American 2-row.

    That's what Budweiser does

    Sort of in the same vein as this, I just brewed a mild in a keg using the gas disconnect as my
