So I found an old beer kit in my parents garage (The Beer Machine) and put it to use. It seemed to work fine so far, but I have a minor problem which I'm not sure how to resolve.
It's basically a 1 step brewing kit, and it's 1 piece (a large keg). There is a valve on the front to dispense the beer once it is done, but when I do it comes out all as foam, leaving me with a tall glass of head. I can wait for it to subside and end up with half a glass of beer, but then it is completely flat (blegh). Is there too much pressure inside, or what?
Thanks, guys. If this works then I should be doing more brewing in the future. I find it is a lot like baking, which is another activity I enjoy.
