72 to 74 degrees for conditioning. I've never had a beer go this long to carbonate. This was s
SMaSH ale with light malt extract, East Kent Goldings hops, and some washed California V ale

Cracked one open on Sunday. A slight sound of air escaping, very few bubbles rising, no head.
Pretty flat. Sweetness is gone but it didn't carb up. I've got one mini keg and the ghetto tap

Well, Brewsmith figured out a previously successful recipe using extract, and converting it to
all grain, as basically a no-sparge brew-in-a-bag. Since extract brewing is essentially the
same with sig...

I've done some all grain full volume batches, but kind of like the convenience of stovetop brew
