I usually keg, but I really didn't want to waste a keg on a bad beer when I have a good one I
can keg next weekend. That was my thought on using a secondary. I'll be able to keep an eye on
it that way...

157975157976This is a first for me. Smells vinegary. Sure as heck doesn't look like yeast
floaties. My first thought is to rack it to a secondary, obviously trying to rack from below
this and leave it...

Bottling up my Pilsner, then I'll be doing an all extract Strong Belgian. Tomorrow I'll do the
partial mash APA. I love it when my sister in law flies into town for the weekend and takes my
wife out o...

I just like good beer. I'd rather buy from Northern Lights, 12 string, Bi-Plane, or one of the

I've been an extract brewer for 3 years. Austin Home Brew had the Kolsch PM on sale, so I

I really like Austin Home Brew. Tons of variety, and just about all their kits have the options

I got no advice, but I wish you all the luck in the world getting this taken care of. If it
