    rescue my sour beer!

    I'm sure every brewer here, no matter how seasoned, has dumped a beer at some point in their brewing life. It's no fun, but it happens, and it'll help you be more diligent in the future. Really, your only option IMO is to blend. I've done that before on beers that missed the mark and it...

    Can I Get This Carbonated for Party on Nov 7th?

    I've used the rock/shaking method before and probably will in the future, but Yooper is right. If you have several days to work with, blast it for a while (I usually do 24 hours) vent the pressure, re-attach at 12 for a few days and it will absolutely be ready. Personally, I wouldn't worry...

    Horrible funk in Belgian with 1214

    I don't really remember, but I don't think so. I think I just blended it until it was gone. I think the problem was not pitching enough yeast

    Low flame on banjo burner

    Well, I went at it again tonight. Pretty much the same story. I had about 30 minutes left to boil and was only able to get about 15. My 10 minute addition ended up becoming a flame out addition and I only netted about 45 minutes of boil time, but I was sick of screwing with it. I will make...

    Nah. No way my stove would handle this. Pot is too thick.

    Low flame on banjo burner

    Well I gave up. Lid is on the pot, and I left it int he garage. It is going to freeze no doubt, but I figure that is better than bringing it inside and having it get infected with something. Brought the tank in and it should be room temp by tomorrow evening. Hopefully that will be enough to...

    Low flame on banjo burner

    Well, I just lit it back up and I guess the pressure is better, but not much. I dropped down to about 160 during all of this, so I will see if I can get it back to a boil and finish it off, but if not, what are my options? Can I cover the pot and bring it inside, then put the tank inside...

    Low flame on banjo burner

    Alright, well I am in the garage now. Gained maybe 10 degrees. It is about 21 in there. I may just be screwed. I tied a heating pad to the tank and wrapped a towel around it to hopefully make use of whatever heat it does put off. I will keep track of it, but I may give up.

    lol...maybe...but not sure if the wife would be cool with me leaving the door open when it is 12 degrees outside. Maybe I will move to the garage and see what happens.

    I doubt I have the means for a hot water bath. What about a heating pad?

    Low flame on banjo burner

    Yeah, it is basically freezing here...12 degrees give or take. Is that my problem? I didnt know a cold tank did that. I have brewed in the cold before. Not sure if I ever brewed in this cold, but who knows for sure. So a cold/freezing tank, loses pressure?
