Not really. Mixing Apfelwein with lemon soda, club soda or mineral water is just another way of consuming it, and a pretty standard mix for it in Germany. I like this method for it's options as well....

Backsweetening and carbonating in bottles is really, really difficult. Bryan is absolutely right, if you don't time things to the nose and control that fermentation you could end up with exploding...

I have some experience with it from the chemistry lab though have never used it for home brewing. It smells terrible and can irritate the skin even in small concentrations. Plus, I think it has a...

Leave your beer on the gunk and go get a second bucket. Bulk prime, less sediment in the bottles. Your beer will thank you for it.

Not necessarily, but need more info on your process and recipe. Are you sure it was done fermenting?

Or, if the goal is a quicker buzz, just drink twice as many of what's already been made.

This is so true. I discovered this by accident a couple of years ago when trying to suss out why I had the same stout producing a different head in similar glasses.

No can do. As another posted has mentioned, you can't effectively regulate the CO2 and the Sodastream bottles are threaded onto the unit so it would be tough to do with any old bottle anyway. There...

Are you really in Kilkenny? I have to ask ... why are you brewing a Coopers Lager Kit? Won't they take your citizenship away? :)

I am also a fan of the Guinness but I don't think I could put down 22 in any one sitting. That stout will definitely get better with time, if you can keep yourself away from them :)

What a bummer, that's a good stout, when it works. Assuming you're sure it's an infection ... I wouldn't dump the buckets, unless you've got some deep scratches in them or something, just give them a...

You know, I have no idea where to find hops out here. I'm sure there farms growing them though. Noble Grape is the only place I know of to get a varied supply. If you're ever by the Port Pub in Port...

I have not tried those but a friend has tried the brand and didn't say favourable things about them. They were pretty flat tasting, if I recall. Not carbonation flat, just not a lot of body to the...

Green is a given. Give it at least 3 weeks in the bottle, then put one in the fridge for a few days to test. If it still seems a bit flat, give them another week or 2.

Your temperature likely isn't the culprit. I think what may be happening is you're bottling beer that's still fermenting, or at least you hadn't indicated that you tested to see if your beer was done...

That DOS is a pretty good beer. I suspect something went awry with your process, or maybe you just don't like stout? Can you describe what was bad? Is it sour? Too sweet? Too strong?

This is where personal preference really comes into play. How fizzy do you like your stout? I tend to drink mine warm-ish and flat so keep the carbonation pretty light. Temperature will also play a...

The pink stuff is a cleaner and a sanitizer, I clean my carboys with it. You just need to rinse it really well. I've used it for a long time, no worries.

BigTerp, have you got that Dogfish Head clone in the fermenter yet? I'm seeing that your primary #2 is empty, and that just seems wrong. :)
