How long ago did you brew it? Temperature control in secondary is MUCH less important than temperature control while active fermentation is happening.

Yeast should taste bready, star san would only show up in HUGE concentrations in the beer. When mixed with water it tastes slightly acidic and a little sour, but not plasticy.

BTW, don't drink too much straight yeast slurry unless you enjoy stomach pains.

I hope that it's appropriate to post this here.
I have 4 pin lock kegs that I'm selling. $110 for the bunch. Local. Price can be negotiated.

Wife and I finally made it to the Swamphead tasting room, on Thursday night. I've been wanting to try the Cottonmouth for a long time. I was not disappointed. I left with a 32 oz. growler, and now I wished I would have gotten the 1 gallon, instead. Oh, heck, screw the growler, and just get a whole keg!!! Also tried their Cream Ale and it was very good as well.

I wish I could get the Great Outdoors in High Springs to carry their beer. I mention it every time I go there.

On the homebrew front, all kegs have something in them. Will not be brewing until one gets close to empty.

I'm moving to Miami on July 9th and can't take my brewing stuff with me, if any of you guys want it let me know and I will let it go for cheap. I have 2 or 3 ball locks, 2 pin locks (one needs a new PRV), a 6.5g glass carboy, a 3g plastic carboy, 5g Coleman mash tun, 32qt aluminum kettle wrapped in insulation, DIY wort chiller, and a bunch of misc stuff that I'd probably just give away. I also have a 1/2bbl sanke that I don't need.

If you want any of it shoot me a text a 9546085759 and tell me.

Interested in how much you want for the wort chiller, carboys and kegs? Will shoot you a text also.

I'm from Gainesville and just started brewing again after long hiatus. Go Gators!

Josh,

Thanks for the taste of the Dark Lord Imperial Stout! It was a pleasure meeting you. Good luck with your move to Miami and safe travels!

Was it you that sent me a text about the wort chiller? If you want the carboys I'd take $40 for both of them, the 3gal one is nice because it's round, not square like a better bottle. I sold the ball locks to Yambor44 but if you want the pinlocks you can take them both for $25. One is in great shape, the other not so much. It needs a new PRV (they are pretty cheap, or you could just seal the hole) and one of the posts is bent but it can still accept disconnects just fine.

Good meeting you too. That Darklord was delicious.

Just thought I'd bump this. Still have something in all kegs, and I just polished off a keg of Cottonmouth, great beer!

Hopefully supplies can hold out until cooler weather, not brewing in this 95 degree weather!
