    How can I salvage this batch?

    A Domino sugar cube per bottle will def give you bottle bombs. As to how to salvage the bottles, I'm not entirely sure.

    Mississippi new brewer in Mississippi

    Welcome mwFripp!! I live in Petal myself. I'm pretty sure The Brew Kettle has closed up shop. The same owners had opened up a craft beer store here in Petal and it was only open for about 2 years when they moved over there. Personally, I drive over to Mobile to The Winesmith to buy all my...

    4 Tap Coffin Keezer

    Yeah, I have a friend who does AC repair work and he cam out and recharged the system for me. Not only that, he drained the coolant and put R-134A coolant in in it and changed out the plug so that I could recharge it myself should this problem reappear in the future. Hope this helped...

    Substituting yeast strain in recipe: is this a good idea or bad?

    Yes, Yeast will absolutely affect the outcome of your beer. While the beer will probably still be really good, it will NOT be a true clone at that point. I have been experimenting with yeast as of late by making 10g of a recipe and pitching 2 different kinds of yeast. My most recent one was...

    I want to oak age my barleywine

    I'm very interested in this as well. I've got some oak cubes that came with a kit that I bought, but ended up not using them because I ended up with less beer in the fermenter than planned and didn't want to waste the oak cubes on that. I am replanning the brew again, bourbon barrel porter, so...

    Closing for the season

    I live in the south so I have the freedom to brew year round, but I have had instances, these last couple of months for example, where I have gone a couple of months without brewing because of so much going on at the time. It usually catches up with me though, since I'm now sitting on one keg...

    Mosaic S.M.A.S.H. (yellow rose clone)

    So it begins - Part one: Set up a pretty temperature controlled Fermentation Chamber

    Awesome! I'm currently using an old refrigerator that I had, hooked to an STC-1000, for my ferm chamber. I have 10g of a SMaSH brew that I did this weekend fermenting away in mine. Good luck with the brewing this weekend!

    Need some Ideas on a SMaSH brew

    Brewed this up this weekend and it's fermenting away right now at a cozy 64*. Can't wait for this one to be done as it looked and smelled wonderful. Will likely do a MO/Willamette soon. Trying to get my new keezer full so my brew partner and I have lots of brews upcoming. Also have lots...

    Need some Ideas on a SMaSH brew

    Well, I've had a mosaic IPA before and I really enjoyed it. Was just curious if I'm overdoing the hop schedule or if it looks ok?

    Need some Ideas on a SMaSH brew

    First off, sorry its taken so long to get back to this thread. Probably going to use US-05 seeing as how its what I have on hand currently and I've been too lazy to make a proper starter from the liquid yeast that I have in my fridge. So, I made a recipe in Beersmith this morning and it...
