I had forgotten about the foaming issue. I guess in that case I might just relegate my kegerator to a cold storage for my kegs to get them to bottling temp.

When it comes down to it, I'm in a bit of a brewing rut and I am trying to make things simpler in order to make it more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the kegerator just adds one more thing to maintain...

Screw Bottle Carbing!

So, I have been kegging for around 2 years, and unfortunately I just don't drink enough beer or throw enough...

What I do is I add my hops into one pot, and start the boils at the same time. I typically sparge to about 7.5 gallons and boil down to 5.5. I found through calculations that the difference in IBU's...

What would be good hops amounts for an ESB vs an EIPA? Would a 1oz at 15 and a 1oz at flameout be good for an ESB or more along the lines of an EIPA?

I've never dry hopped. Is it really necessary, or can I just do a larger flameout addition?

Also, even if I use cascade, I want to keep the British hop character dominant. Is there a rough guide...

I did an amber ale once that was 16SRM according to my software. I found that it was way too dark, but still tasted great. I would suggest skipping the chocolate malt completely, it's kinda out of...

I've used Munich as a base malt a number of times. When I do, I typically lean towards the lighter Munich that is available (my LHBS has a dark and a light). Munich should be able to convert itself,...

I fermented in a growler once. It didn't explode, but I had issues getting the cap off. I tapped it on the sink trying to loosen it and then it shot off like a rocket! I was lucky my face wasn't in...

I'd hit around a .7 BU/GU ratio (or there abouts). I don't have much experience with the strength of willamette, but the later additions look decent.

That's a lot of crystal for a small batch. I would personally boost it up to a 5 gallon batch by adding 4-5 lbs of maris otter (or another base malt depending on what you have). I normally use that...

my plan for now is to keep moving forward and pitching tonight without topping off. Unless someone has a good reason to top off.

So I switched up my boiling method (1 pot instead of 2) and that has made life more difficult hitting OG's. For example, I just brewed a Maertzen striving for 1.054 and instead got 1.062. What does...
