Posted in thread: Please identify possible infection? on 09-04-2015 at 04:40 PM
Looks like a ton of headspace there. If only two are infected, and all three have that much
headspace, then you are very lucky. I'd bottle or rack the one without the pellicle to a
smaller carboy imme...

It is usually high in AA's so can be used as a bittering hop (but somehow it feels like a waste
using it for that?). I've grown to be careful with Citra when using it for late additions and

Ok, I played with it today with cold water. Still no leaks. :DI think I've got the priming
thing figured out, but it's still a pain. I'm going to leave it as is, and see how it goes
before trying to "...
Posted in thread: Question about 30 psi for 2 days.... on 09-04-2015 at 03:28 PM
Is it really that freaking simple?No. Oh, sure, it'll carb but it could be overcarbed. It will
be full of suspended sediment, cloudy, and maybe have a "bite" from the burst carbing.What's

If you want it to be sparkling, don't release the pressure. However, I'm not sure how much
pressure that plastic barrel and spigot can hold, so I'd use caution with it.

the centennials were ready, after that the chinook was ready and the cascades were last. I

Would it help to rack to a secondary at this point? Trying to avoid all that crap on top and
see if it pops back up?No. The more time it has, the worse it will get. It's already got a ton
Posted in thread: How much is too much to steep? on 09-04-2015 at 01:42 PM
I agree with NCSU Brewer, you could just do a BIAB. I think Vienna would be better utilized in
a mash rather than a steep anyway.But that is a mash, from what is described. That will work.
You can mas...
