No reason to store kegs with StarSan in them. Just clean them, let them air dry, and store upside-down. When you're ready to keg, give them a good rinse and then sanitize with StarSan. There's a...

I do the exact same thing. After adding the hot wort to the LME container I cool it in the fridge for 5 minutes, then dump it in with my yeast starter. It really gets the starter kick started...

I'm brewing tonight and for the first time I'm using 1.5# of honey. Does honey have the potential to burn on the bottom of the kettle like LME? The recipe calls for the honey to be added 45 minutes...

Use a grain bag and a super fine, nylon mesh hop bag. It really keeps the trub down.

I finished about an hour ago. I decided to just use new hops. I steamed my hop bag first this time, only because I also added an oz of French oak chips. I usually just spray a little StarSan on...

That's it! Does it add aroma only? What affect does it have on flavor. Do you use it with a beer that's already been dry hopped? Do I need to bring my own beer mug to your picnic?

Hops filter?

Has anyone tasted beer that flowed from the keg, through a home water filter that has been stuffed with whole leaf hops, then out the faucet? I'm not sure what it's called. I've seen a few photos...

Homegrown Hops

Does anyone grow their own hops in New England? If so, what varieties have you grown? What success and failure are you getting? Lower alpha, mold problems, etc.?

I haven't even taken my hydrometer out of the case for the last half dozen brews I've made. I don't think the ancient monks had hydrometers, and that's good enough for me.
