The beer was in the primary for two weeks and spent another 3 in the secondary. I'm pretty sure it was a priming sugar misjudgment. I'm more concerned with how to remedy it....

Recipe for Sour Red

I had this killer Sour Red Ale in Portsmouth NH a couple of months back and I can't get it out of my mind. I'd never tasted anything like it -- does anyone know of any recipes for sour beer?

You should be able to find pond pumps at any landscaping store, Home Depot, or garden center. You'd probably be fine with the cheapest as there is little water to pump and almost no grade.

Keg beer backing up into CO2 Line

I'm getting a bit of beer shooting up into my CO2 line from the keg. It's not a lot, but I am concerned that it might compromise the sanitation of the system.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Noise during Carbing

I'm new to kegging. Everytime I turn on my gas (forcing at around 30 psi), I get this loud blap-blap-blap for about 2 seconds before it goes away. Does this indicate some kind of leak in my valves? ...
