    Forgot my Local HBS Recipe :-(

    I don't know the AA% of the hops, the ingredients are at my parents house awaiting the right brew day. Should i use all of the 1# bags of Munich and Crystal 60L?

    1st Sankey D Coupled keg/All Foam!

    Does the thicker 5/16 ID tubing require more PSI per foot or less to push the beer? Secondly, to disengage the tap and make this change can I vent the keg and pull up the handle on the keg coupler? Or should i just vent the keg and turn off CO2? I've had very little experience with this...

    Stone Cold Brown Ale Recipe - Any Comments?

    Hi Guys, I'm brewing my first all-grain batch of the year (work has been hell) and the owner of the LHBS kind of translated a beer that i like in the local microbrew restaurant. It's described as a brown ale with a hint of belgian candi sugar and a smokey finish. Here is the recipe i've put...

    1st Sankey D Coupled keg/All Foam!

    OK, i've experimented with a dozen different CO2 pressure and i'm still having the All Foam problem. The 1st night i had a minor keg party with my brew buddies and i vented the keg and brought it down to 3 PSI for a decent beer trickle with limited head. I don't think the keg would stay carbed...

    How Long do Commercial Kegs Stay Fresh

    I just bought a half barrel of Sam Adams and i have it connected to CO2 and was wondering how long this will stay "Brewery Fresh" before the flavor profile starts to change. Anyone have any experience with these?

    1st Sankey D Coupled keg/All Foam!

    Hi Guys, I just drove home ~7pm a keg of Sam Adams Oktoberfest to help along this festive holiday season. I'm still running a Chest Freezer kegarator with picnic taps and a 10# CO2 tank. I connected the CO2 tank to the Coupler at 10PSI and the Beer out to a picnic tap with 6' of hose. It's...

    Is my Starter Infected? Should I use it?

    It was kept at room temperature for the week and also, I didn't see any fuzz or chutes coming out of the clumps. Any advice? If this can't be salvaged, would using Nottingham dry yeast for a Hefeweizen be an acceptable substitute on short notice?

    Is my Starter Infected? Should I use it?

    Hey All, I brewed a 1L starter last saturday with the intention of using it on Sunday. I used 1/2 cup of ELDME and an 1/8 teaspoon of yeast nutrient in my 2L flask. I couldn't brew on sunday and now a week later the starter has white clumps floating in it. I couldn't detect any off-smells...

    How Long is too Long in secondary?

    I try to brew 3 batches a month. Even with consumption running high, i struggle to drink 15 gal a month. Tomorrow i'm brewing a Titannia Wheat ale and i still have yet to tap the Oktoberfest or the 6-Malt Amber. On a side note, if you like Oktoberfest style beer and you haven't brewed the...

    How Long is too Long in secondary?

    Hey All, I brew beer so often that i've actually been getting backed up. My friends and I aren't drinking it fast enough, so my lagering fridge has two secondaries of beer at a time until i can free up a keg. How long is too long for beer to be in the secondary without adding possible...

    Cleaning CO2 Lines in a Kegarator?

    Hi All, I've been kegging beer for about 8 months now, and my kegerator has gone through a number of modifications. For the moment, now i have capacity for about 4 kegs with a single regulator and a 4-way CO2 distributor. By a repetitively doing a newbie mistake that i think just about...

    Apfelwein Kegs and Off-flavors?

    Hi All, So far i've made two six gallon batches of Apfelwein. When i kegged both batches, i used the same corny keg. They came in one after another. I'm about to kick my second keg of Apfelwein. Is there a possibility this could cause off-flavors if i rack beer into the keg? I've been told...
