It must not actually be 25F or it would freeze. I keep mine at 36F and it's about right for my taste for Pales and IPA's. A normal bottled beer in a regular fridge is usually 38F.

It shouldn't gush like that after just 2 weeks. How long did you let it ferment. Sounds like there was still some fermentation going on when you bottled. How much sugar did you put in the batch and...

Just my 2 cents worth, but rather than starting with 3 month old room temp liquid yeast, making a starter, after 48 hours decant and make another starter, wait another 48 hours, and still you don't...

I wouldn't be to worried about a little drop. I had a fitting on my immersion chiller start leaking into my kettle (1/4 cup worth) and it was just fine. And since you still have snow, wild yeast...

Same here. 4 or more ounces of pellets gets a bag. 3 or less goes straight in.
Whole cones go straight in regardless of amount.

Like I said, they didn't work for me. Leaked on the gas side and beer side. It does'nt have to be a "bad enough fail", a fail is a fail. Try one, it may work fine for a while as it did with me until...

If carbing naturally, let it finish that way. May take at least a month at 70f and that may still not be enough time. Two weeks won't be enough time for a keg to carbonate naturally. Don't add...
