Looking for a primer for electric brewing

Long story, so I will cut to the chase. I am an intermediate brewer with about 40 completed brews-all were extract. I am thinking about trying all-grain, but I really need to find a way to do it...

Probably a dumb question, but...

I have been kegging for ~ 6 months now, and I love it.

My kegerator only has room for 5 kegs in it, and that's with me running the Co2 and Nitro from outside the fridge. Here is my dumb question:...

LME versus DME

Hi All,
I have been brewing for exactly one year, and I have made a lot of beer that I like very much. I am beginning to get a bit more serious about it: develop my own recipes, buy in bulk to save...

That was a lot of information! I read through that, and it answered questions I did not even know I had.
Nothing left to do now but do it.

Thanks!
Just for my own education, does that mean the nitro/CO2 mix (75/25, as I recall) is only to push the beer for serving? I would suspect that is due to the higher pressure, and the need to...

Nitro kegging/serving question

Hi all, I am kind of new to the kegging world, and I have an important question. I have a CO2 system with two taps in a refrigerator. I am adding a nitro system for my beloved stouts, and I get...

Just bottled a few days ago. FG was 1.010, so that seems good (and probably means I screwed up the initial measurement). Smell was great. taste was good. I will crack one open in a couple weeks and...

Damn...I live in Alexandria, and I am looking for something like this.
Trouble is, I want something that can expand a bit. If you can help me think about how I can add a couple of stout taps, I...

Need some advice about what's next

Hi All,
I have found this to be a very generous and helpful group.
I have been brewing for 8 or 9 months now. My first couple brews were okay, but I have done 5 or 6 really good ones (not just my...

Thanks! Maybe i did not stir it well, or maybe i read it wrong. When i go to bottle and take a FG reading is there any way to work backwards? More to the point, can i just assume if it ends up at a...

Everything went into the primary. I cannot remember if I took my gravity reading before or after I added the blackberries, but I am 100% sure I had added the puree by then.

7 lbs Wheat LME
8 oz Carapils
8 oz White Wheat

2 49 oz cans of Blackberry puree...

Just a quick update: I checked gravity this weekend, and it came out at 1.002. I think I will give it another week and rack it. A quick nip suggests it'll be good. Not especially sweet, but not too...

Cider Newbie

Hi All,
