Ok, I think I may have F'd up. I sanitized my kegs with about 32 oz of One Step and shook them up. I dump them out right before filling them with beer but I may have forgotten to do that this time....

1.5-2L stepped starter too small for two vials??

Back to brewing after a long summer off and I failed to remember we only have one 2L flask to build a starter. I'm wondering if there's a chance I could just make one big, stepped starter (built...

Anyone ever use Ward Laboratiries?

I'm looking to have our water tested and found this place online. They seem to be pretty inexpensive. Has anyone used them before?

Ok. I'll keep an eye on the gravity for a few days. This is a recipe I found online (I think it was here on HBT) named Denny's Wry Smile Rye IPA. However, I forgot to adjust for our efficiency so our...

Yeah, I'll be dryhopping with an ounce of Columbus whole leaf a week or so before kegging. This beer is due to end up at about 7.2% abv so I'm thinking the yeast is still hard at work which is why,...

Ok. I'm letting it go another week in primary. Today, 17 days in primary, I'm still getting a bubble in the airlock every 45 seconds. Then I'll probably go to secondary just for clearing purposes....

About what volume is everyone carbing this up to. We just kegged ours and hooked it up to CO2 yesterday. I've got it set to go just over 3.00 volumes. Does that sound about right or a little too high?

I'm doing the set and forget it method at 15psi in my sanke keg at 42 degrees. I had the lines at 10 feet and cut them down to 7 which actually helped. It is better now but it just seems weird.
