  • I've been making stouts and hefeweissens (sp?) with my Dad since i was 5. Went off on my own with a wild grape wine when i was 14, and what little is left is being aged for another 5 years. Recently had a beautiful peach wine ruined by a shattered carboy.rnrnAll time favorite: Acerweissen, a maple wheat beer. 13%abv, smooth flavor. only ever had a sip at a time tho. ^_^

    Another option is to vacuum transfer. Dip tube to keg's liquid out, pull a vacuum on the gas

    Sorry, it's acetaldehyde that yeast produce, not acetone. Still a powerful solvent and much

    - The relief valve on a sanke coupler bleeds the pressure between the gas source and the keg.
    It does not bleed pressure off of the keg.The pressure relief valve is on the "keg side" of the
    gas check ...

    I can't stand the thought of all that fruit going to waste.
