Did you have the probe in a glass jug of water, or something in the keezer? Or did the probe
somehow fall out of the liquid? Or where you measuring the ambient temperature inside the
keezer? What was ...

Haha, that would be nice but I'm on the top floor of the apartment, we get free heat, so even
if I turn my heat completely off in the middle of the winter my apartment is about 80 degrees
due to the p...

Hey i just visited a local brewery where they had a porter in which they used real cocoa and

this OMG it ...

I would lower the fermentation temp a bit. I had great results with plenty of banana fermenting

I'm going to brew this once my Aventinus clone is kegged because I'm going to use the yeast
from it. The banana flavor will come from the Wyeast 3068, fermented at a temperature of 75

Posted in thread: Mini-Kegs - Good Idea? on 03-31-2009 at 02:27 AM

with the occ...

Most of my beers have tasted nasty even after a month in the bottle, but give it time and
you'll be surprised at what age can do. I remember I was all excited about my first christmas
