I've gotten this flavor in a saison I dry hopped as well. None of my other beers get this off flavor. I get some of my hops from Label Peelers and some from Fresh Hops. I get them right after the...

Line length issues aside, you almost certainly have overcarbed your keg. If your keg pressure is higher than your regulator pressure the symptoms that you are seeing usually occur. The CO2 comes...

I think your recipe will work well in both a witbier and saison. It certainly fits a witbier recipe(sans the dark munich). The style guideline for a saison is pretty loose, so you're definitely...

Those bubbles look a tad bit suspicious. The size of them is what concerns me. How's it smell and taste? If it is an infection there are things you can do to avoid bottle bombs. Test a bottle...

Welcome to the best hobby ever. Resist the urge to open your bucket until fermentation has completed and you want to take a gravity reading. Beer does not do well with too much exposure to oxygen. ...

You'll definitely get citrus/grapefruit notes from a combination of cascade and centennial. Given your batch size and OG I think you may want to use more dry hops. When I brew an IPA of that OG I...

I agree with the others. If the gravity is already down to 1.015 then 3724 is doing its job and doesn't need any help. Once you get past 1.030 with that yeast it's smooth sailing. It should drop a...

I had the same problem the first time I used mine. You have to feed fishing through the hole that is closer to the center of the bug. So, I used 4 lb test, which is pretty thin. I fed it in from...

I definitely get at least 10 batches per tank. I run it with the regulator on a setting so I can just see the oxygen bubbles on the surface of the wort. I run it for 60 to 90 secs. I've never...

I can't say for sure, but repitching hefe yeast washed/froze may be the culprit. Is this German hefe yeast Wyeast 3068 or WLP300? These yeasts do not store well. They can definitely be repitched,...

There is chloramine in the tap water. You should try to remove that with a charcoal filter or campden tablets. I used to use tap water, but got a few judges comments about astringency. I bought a...

That would definitely be under-pitching by a bit, even for that yeast. If the smack pack was less than a week old it might have 100 billion cells that are in good health. That would give you 2.5...

In late April this beer should still be good. You may lose a little hop aroma and flavor in that time. It will definitely be nice and clear by then. As long as you purged the keg headspace with...

If you keep it at 62-65F during most of fermentation you should get a nice balance of cloves and bananas. When fermentation is slowing raise it to 68-70F and it will finish off. By chance, did you...

How does it smell and taste? Does it smell moldy and is it kinda hairy? And yes, mold can grow on the surface of beer. I'd try to skim some of that stuff off and taste it. It could just be yeast...
