Cheers, gents!

The right time never comes without a little pushing, so I'm going to start moving into making beer for money. Not having capital be damned! But I'm not stupid. I can't do this for...

Repitching in Secondary

I'm coming back to brewing after a year off or so. I basically liquidated my brew works when I went on hiatus. I kept the bare minimums to make a batch.

So about two weeks ago, I did a Boring...

"It's bitter," so says the Wife.

I was thinking a Strawberry-Rhubarb Saison.

I don't like adding fruit to boils, generally, so I'd make a pulp in the blender, add pectic and put it in the...

Towards a More Sustainable Belgian

I'm bored with the big beers I've been brewing. What I need is a new beer! Last Saturday I hooked up a fresh keg and had two pints before I realized that I was smashed and had to go take a nap.

Bottling from draft or kegs

Let's say I have a beer on draft and I want to take some to a party. Will the beer retain sufficient carbonation if I stick a 22 under the tap and cap it really fast?

Does anyone know what a beer...

I'd be careful. I wouldn't prime and flavor with liquer. Too little, no carbonation. Too much, too much flavor. Drink some first. Flavor to taste. My $.02.

Yeah, you should put an airlock on it. It may bubble a little after you rack it.

Lagers ferment at cooler temperatures too. Too high of a temperature in your primary could cause lots of off flavors.

I'd stay away from household cane sugar because it has fructose in it which is harder to ferment and leaves a funny taste. Instead, use corn sugar like you would for bottling. Knowledgable sources...

How do I get a softer, more frothy head on my beer? My carbonation level overall seems fine. When poured, the head dissipates quickly though. The bubbles seem larger than might be conducive for a...
