I experience somthing like this from time to time. I have recently discovered that it is because beer in the beverage line on the outside of the keg has frozen. It typically happens when I only...

Filling straight from the keg will introduce oxygen into the beer. The effects are not usually noticed if consumed right away. However, many feel that you should not use this method if the beer...

I am not really sure how long it will take to cool the beer. I always leave mine overnight before force carbing. I would be leary of using the deep freezer to cool your beer unless you have a...

You could definitely do it with one keg, but to do 4 or 5 batches could take some time, as you need to completely chill the beer before you carbonate it. If you had access to a walk-in cooler,...

I would suggest boiling some spices in water, and then adding the spice tea to the keg. This will be the quickest way to add the desired flavor to the beer.

You can release the pressure from the keg, remove the 'out' poppet and pull out the dip tube. You can then inspect it to see if there is a blockage.

I remove the hinges from my rectangular cooler mash tuns. I see no real advantage to having them, and it sure makes it easier to clean it out.

Hi Greg,

Based on those instructions, I assume that your kit is a 'pre-hopped' extract kit. The instructions provided are pretty much sound for that kind of a kit, however I would use a proper...

You could always add a little note on the bottle asking people to open it on your one year anniversary to help you celebrate.

This will ensure a pleasant mead experience for all.

I have to agree with the tagline. You are mixing your tenses. I think "Made hot, drank cold" is an improvement.

I like the logos in this preference; #2, #3, and then #1.
