I scored a bunch of old pin locks - none have pressure release and it is not at all an issue.

That head is going to reduce as your burst settles down to service pressure. At least that's what I've noticed in mine. You may be noticing a little carbonic bite now also - anyhoo - vent off your...

If I had to make a 4% stout that needed to be ready to drink in 8 weeks from a keg, I'd feel okay...

I am super critical of my beers. Honestly, the metric I have tried to reach is that in a blind test of random craft beers, a decent craft beer fan could not pick the homebrew from the micro. I think...

Glass doesn't have a flavor, nor does it impart or retain flavors - except maybe pickle jars.

A good example of skunked beer is Heineken or Corona - both of which are skunky due to green / clear...

I made a hefe with WB06 (this was an all grain with Cascade hops) - it was plenty cloudy and powered through the wort. Had some nice flavors and was very approachable by non-crafty drinkers.

By peak he means when the beer is best. Most have a lifespan, where they may be a little young, then their peak and then a decline as they age. Most low gravity beers are better younger, especially...

Should be fairly dry - dextrose and honey both ferment 100%, so no real flavor change from these additions. Around 5 SRM and probably 20-25 IBU.

Should start at 1051 and likely end around 1015 -...

Your 60 minute addition was too light. You said you had good flavor and aroma, but sounds like what was missing was that backbone of bitterness. Almost everything I've done lately has had a 1oz...

I haven't used a secondary in my last 15 brews, and I'm not looking back.

I have a large cooler - maybe 55qt - and 2 kegs fit sitting side by side. Obviously with lid open.

Otherwise, a big trash can or anything else you can stick a keg and ice into.
