Thanks for the replies, guys. It's pretty unlikely that I mis-measured the ingredients, just because of the way they were packaged -- even if I had screwed up the tare function, I couldn't have been...

Implausible gravity reading on both hydrometer and refractometer

I just brewed a partial mash version of BierMuncher's Black Perl Porter. This was my second time brewing this beer; the first time went perfectly. This time, however, I'm getting some ridiculous...

I literally use a coat hanger. Just make sure it has NO PAINT ON IT (that sucked), break it into two or three pieces, and bend them to the desired shape. They go right on the burner, between the...

Two Cascades IPA

This was an experiment to see what Argentine Cascades are like, and also my first stovetop all-grain. The result is strange but drinkable. The aroma really pops. In retrospect, I would tone down the...

Can I assume that the secondary was a bucket, or is there some trick to getting a 4 pound bag of strawberries into and out of a carboy?

My partial mash version of this recipe (two pages up in this thread) turned out freaking great! Thanks BM!

I chose this recipe as the first one for my new kegging setup, and it came out...

As I understand it, 12 psi is 12 psi regardless of the volume occupied, and so it should have worked. You're sure the regulator and tank were open the whole time?

That's very interesting.



Ah, I see. So you're basically just pressurizing the gas line up to the disconnect, and since that is a much smaller volume, it will settle on whatever the...

OK, cool, so it doesn't seem to be unusual -- I'd just never heard of it in my pre-kegging research. I've already bumped the output back up to 12psi. I'm curious about the mechanism behind this,...

I was thinking about that, but since the regulator is open, wouldn't new gas immediately flow in from the tank, maintaining a constant pressure of 12psi as the beer absorbs co2? I thought that was...

Slowly falling keg-side pressure?

So I just kegged a batch for the first time yesterday, and I'm trying to force carbonate it with the set-and-forget method. I put the keg & tank/regulator in the fridge at about 5:30pm yesterday and...

Wait -- I assumed that if the kegs are "reconditioned" the o-rings should be new, right?

I also just brewed a partial mash of this today. Won't be able to tell you for several weeks whether it's "watery" as you say. Mouthfeel is apparently a pretty complicated thing, being a lot more...

I've had a similar experience with that same yeast. Brewed a saison which started out fine, but has actually gotten more diacetyl notes as it sits in the bottles... it's very noticeable now after...

Good lager yeasts for fermenting at ale temperatures?

So as I understand it, California Common and Cream Ale are the two American beer styles made by fermenting lager yeasts at ale temperatures (frequently, anyway; see the wiki). I was thinking of...

I definitely ended with 5 gallons. In fact, I added water a bit over 5 gal in an effort to lower the gravity (my poor yeast!). So something probably went wrong with the DME... though I mixed it...
