Similar, but not quite the same.

Not sure who Tom Hargrave is, my name is Craig. I'm located in Maine.

keg conditioning upside down

The last time I keg conditioned I ended up with a lot of gunk jamming up the outflow of my keg and it was very hard to clear.

Has anyone tried flipping the keg upside down during keg conditioning...

I made it just as I would French press coffee. I poured boiling water over the hop pellets in the press, and filled it to the brim. At 60 minutes I had pretty thick hop sludge, so I added that to the...

I did something like this for my last DIPA when the primary hopping schedule didn't deliver what I wanted. For a 6 gallon batch, I mixed 6 oz of hop pellets with 1 L of boiled water and let it sit...

One more update.

I'm so glad I didn't trash this batch because it came out amazing! Easily the best IPA I've done by far, and my first HT clone that actually uses Conan. FG at kegging was 1.011,...

I skipped the orange peel, but still did 1 tsp Burton salts (I use RO water with only 6-7 ppm), and used the Chinook for bittering. We'll see how it goes. I can always brew another one!

I'm working on my first English ordinary bitter, and this is what I've come up with so far. I'm shooting for an easy drinking, just interesting enough, pub style ale. I don't really know how to...

So far so good… I have to say I'm quite surprised this was salvageable. Worried about going to far with the amylase, I put the carboy in my garage where the temp is in the 40s.

I tasted the beer...

There are kits, but it's not Vegan's recipe, and they're overpriced.

We're at 1.011 now, and the taste of the beer is much improved without that cloying sweetness. So it appears this was a mash problem.

I'm about to do a hop tea using all of the scheduled dry...

It's too sweet as it is now, I want to drop the gravity more or just start over.

I believe I mentioned earlier the first 10 minutes of my mash were 156F, so that might have created some...

You know, thinking back on my mash, I overshot the target temp in the very beginning and it spent about 10 minutes at 155-6F. Perhaps that destroyed the natural beta amylase and created more...

Okay, well provided I get down to my target gravity, I'll make a hop tea out of one of the dry hop additions. Add that, then do the second dry hop addition as usual.

I've tried:

1) Gentle aeration by transferring to a new carboy with waterfall.
2) Escalating the temp to 72.5F
3) Pitching a packet of...

If I go US-05 (simplest route), should I rehydrate, or just toss in a packet?

I'll try escalating the temp overnight to 72.5F and see what happens.
