    Keezer Collar Advice

    Thanks for the help everyone. I went with the shim route. I couldn't cut a piece of wood to size, but some bamboo strips I had lying around worked well.

    Keezer Collar Advice

    Hey all, I've finally gotten around to building a collar for my new freezer - problem is it's a little crooked (see picture). It's about 3/4" away from the top of the freezer on the front left side. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Should I just scrap it and start over...

    Bock is too Sweet

    Thanks TX. I'll have to remember this next time I brew a bock. I'll lay off on the crystal a bit and see if that changes anything. Yooper - I'll also make some bitterness changes. If I find it too sweet after carbonation, I may try boiling some hops in water and adding to the finished beer...

    Bock is too Sweet

    Hi all, I just finished kegging a bock and during some tasting it seemed too sweet. OG was 1.072, FG was measured at 1.018 - right on the estimated value. Are bocks supposed to be so sweet? Is there something with the fermentation that could have gone wrong? I made a huge starter and...

    Mango Habanero ESB

    Mango Habanero ESB

    After over half a year of not being able to brew (apartment 80°F+), I'm finally getting a freezer and will be able to brew again! I've found a bunch of recipes for a mango habanero APA, but wanted to try this with an ESB. My thought is that the fruitiness of an English yeast will complement...
