Actually, I stand corrected.

You could consider a re-pitch.

7 days primary, 7 days secondary is a good general rule for most beers. Hydrometer readings
will verify it if you feel it's necessary. FWIW, I always use a secondary, but I've got a dozen

Posted in thread: Reusing slurry from dry-hopped IPA. Bad idea? on 03-31-2011 at 04:11 AM
Did you dry hop in the primary or use a secondary? Sounds like you used the primary. Either
way, I'd make a good starter. I just made a 1qt starter from a 1.065 IPA and used it in a 1.093
and it's sti...

I'm using the same glasses for four different kegs so I don't think they're the issue as the
others are fine. This particular ESB has a great thick head as the others do when it's poured.

Yep. The poppet was stuck and the QD couldn't open it properly. The restricted opening changed
the flow of the beer. If you get real curious, look up Bernoulli's principle.

I could see that. Turns out it was my poppet so thanks to Brewfat. I disassemble and clean my
faucets every Sunday. I went a month once and it was nasty. Could be because my fridge is
outside in South...

Changed out the poppet. Seems to have improved a bit but still have some foam in the line. Keg
is a bit warm after the work so I'll let it cool back down and check again. If that doesn't
work I'll cha...
