    What is the best way to carbonate your beer for a competition? Carbonate in a keg, then

    Here are my thoughts on dry hopping. I want to wait to get the hops into the beer after there
    is sufficient alcohol to avoid problems with any contaminants from the hops (and bag). I also
    want to get ...

    accomplish what...

    Also, if I choose to skip the secondary process, can I just dry-hop in the keg? If I use a
    sanitized tea ball, then how long can I leave it in the keg? Week? Month? Whole time there is
    beer in the keg...

    It's not an art....guys, we all move our beers, from the basement lager up to the kitchen, or
    from the brewing closet up to the table to rack to the bottling bucket. We kick stuff up all
    the time, and...

    So, how do you accomplish getting fermentable sugars, low final gravity and still having a beer
    with a little roundness to the body. Not wee heavy body, but a sufficient backbone.

    buffers available. ...
