    Kegging Coopers Stout

    yes, in order for the beer to carb right you have to cool it down. it's almost impossible to carb beer at room temp. I throw out the first half a glass because that's mostly yeast

    Did I add too much dry yeast when bottling my Pilsner?

    2x dry hop= 1/2 the time

    it's more like a tea bag, you leave it in a cup for 5 mins then pull it out you get tea. if you put the same bag in for 5 mins in another cup then you get watered down tea. there are calculations you can use to find out exactly what times you need to put them in but I don't have those numbers...

    Did I just ruin 3 lbs of LME?

    i have an open bag of DME on the shelf closed with a piece of tape. no need to do all these extra steps and burn the extract or mix cleaning chemicals with it. think of it as honey, you can leave it out for years and put it on your pancakes just fine. plus your gonna boil it... most people are...
