some CO2 into...

Did they start making it a year round beer? I know 6 packs are hard to find here but quarts are
everywhere. The brown shugga has been hard for me to find but it is available at the moment.
Had my firs...
Posted in thread: Cold crash, air lock sucking on 09-30-2014 at 09:32 PM
The cold crash suckback has always bothered me and I've never accepted the recommendations not
to worry about the air that comes back into the fermenter. It absolutely is an oxidation risk

You guys were very right, when plugging all this info into Bru'n Water, my pH would be down

adding in a ...

flavor. So I'm ...

etc etc. So...

I recently had a batch of saison show major oxidation from the first bottle I uncapped after 3
weeks of bottle conditioning. Between that first bottle (which was just somewhat oxidized), and
all the r...

I'm drinking a saison right now that I brewed about 1.5 months ago. I used Wyeast 3711. I get a
