That was definitely your problem. Stout faucets are meant to be run with a N2/CO2 mix at around 30 psi. You should have plenty of carbonation, though. If anything, 12 psi at an average 37 degrees...

If you're topping off to the same volume each time, the boil off wouldn't matter at all. You'll still have same amount of sugars diluted in the same final volume of water. If you're topping off...

I actually went the opposite way. Got a great deal a few years back on a commercial kegerator with dual towers and 5 taps, so I snapped it up. Aside from a party or two, I've never had more than 2...

Sanke kegs are nice, but they're hard to find for a reasonable price and harder to clean. As for the Corny kegs, there's no real advantages either way between ball lock and pin lock. Pin locks are...

I don't know why you think this is a surefire way to kill your compressor. I've been doing this for years in my now 15 year old fridge / fermentation chamber.

Even if you use a temperature...

You can definitely separate them (just be careful you unscrew them correctly, they're LH thread). However, if you don't replace the high pressure gauge (or plug the hole), you're going to have an...

That's not how it works with his setup. Otherwise, that high pressure gauge on the end would never register anything. Both regulators are receiving the high pressure gas straight from the bottle...

The priming sugar you add at bottling will bump it up a little bit, but you're still going to be looking at somewhere around 3.5%, if that. Still, if it tastes good, who cares? You'll just drink it...

An Irish red was the first recipe I ever developed on my own. It's really not that complicated, but, in my opinion, using the actual Irish ale yeast is essential. Nottingham is too clean (when...

Lived there for a year back around 2010. Westbrook just opened up and was pretty good. Like sudndeth said, I appreciate what Coast did for the local industry, but I'm just not a fan of their stuff....

Keep in mind, though, that fermentation is exothermic. During the first couple of days, the temperature of the beer can be 5 to 10 degrees higher than the ambient air temperature. You may want to...

Not disagreeing with anything here. But the OP asked how to convert that recipe to extract and instead of that, he got a suggestion to do a mini-mash. Yes, it's not that much more difficult, but...

I think you guys are making this more complicated than it needs to be for the OP and potentially confusing by saying "steep" (even in quotes) when you mean mash.

Untreated brass will corrode pretty quickly. It probably won't harm the beer directly in any way, but it'll make it harder to keep clean. I'd use it in a pinch, but I'd keep looking for a better...

As a Yank, I'm a little confused by your recipe. What is EBC in terms of kilos of grain/extract?

But beyond that, is the beer already carbonated? In the words of Tom Jones, it's not unusual for...

How close is "close-ish"? The few time I've compared, they've been within a point or two. Unless you're using a lab grade, narrow range hydrometer, that's about as accurate as you can read the...

I think you're on the right track. Keeping fermentation temps under control would be my number 1 priority. Wort chiller would be next. If you go the STC route, I'm guessing you'd have roughly $150...

An average gravity ale is usually done fermenting in 3-4 days and done conditioning a day or two after that. After 10 days, it's already beer and you can treat it just like the finished product.

If you get the same reading in a couple of days, don't worry about the foam. It's an indication that fermentation occurred but not necessarily that it's ongoing. I've had a few batches that...

Never had a problem with foam or cloudiness due to shaking. Anything you stir up falls right back out in a day or so. Yes, it's not strictly necessary, but it's another tool in the toolbox.
