    Having party today - need suggestions

    Thanks. I am kicking myself in the butt for this one. I have been hyping this party for 3-4 weeks. It's a late Florida Oktoberfest with brats/green peppers/saurkraut/onions, Sauerbraten, German potato salad. and whatever else comes in a side dish. Out of the 14 who are coming, I might have...

    Having party today - need suggestions

    Thanks. The only thing I can find is: 20# CO2 stamped on the tank with lots of inspection dates. The tank weighs 30.4 lbs. I went to Lowe's and they want $82 for the Cobalt regulator and $35 for the large CO2 cannister or $23 for the smaller cannister. I think I will be OK. If it...

    Having party today - need suggestions

    I have a CO2 tank about 2 foot high and about 8-10 inches in diameter with 5 kegs attached. I originally bought the gauges for a foot long tank and the needle is half-way in the red. The only local gas place is closed. The needle doesn't move very fast and the kegs have been under pressure for...

    Fermentation Question - Temp

    Room temperature of 73 degrees. I knew the temp range of the yeast. My electric bill is already too high and I wasn't going down any lower. Most of the time the room temp is about 75 degrees when I ferment other beers. I never have a problem that I know. I already have three refrigerators. I am...

    Fermentation Question - Temp

    I brewed a Belgian Ale with a sg. 1.070 with WLP500 Trappist Ale on Sunday. I used pure O2 with a SS air stone for about 90 seconds. I used a blow-off tube for a vigorous fermentation on Monday and Tuesday. I went back to an airlock yesterday. I turned down the A/C to 73 degrees during this...

    Florida oak leaf

    Thanks a lot

    Florida oak leaf

    A Florida Oak (dead/brown) leaf fell into my wort while it was boiling. Not sure how long it was in there. Should I be worried? I assume not since every thing is aged in oak barrels. Also, in the last 15 minutes of my 90 minute boil, I threw in the irish moss and 10 minutes later with 5...

    pitched the yeast when it was way too hot

    I always use Vodka in the airlock. Before I siphon, I'll do a mouthful of vodka, swish it around, and then let it dribble out over my lips.

    Belgium Candi / Tripple

    I am making the Belgium Tripel that is on page 36 of the November 2000 issue of BYO. The Candi goes in at the beginning of the boil. I made a 1.5 qt starter using WLP500 Trappist Ale and 1.5 cups of golden light DME.

    Belgium Candi / Tripple

    How much beet sugar should I use for 1 lb of Belgian Candi? Thanks in advance

    Belgium Candi / Tripple

    Can you buy the beet sugar at the grocery store? Now that I have the Belgium candi, can I just eat it? :)

    Belgium Candi / Tripple

    I am making a Belgium Tripple with 11 lbs of Pale Malt Extract. My LBS didn't have clear candi. I bought a pound of dark, because I can't wait another two weeks for a shipment. Is it going to make a big difference? It will go into a keg when finished.

    Tubing and clamps

    I currently have two kegs of green (Irish Red / Belgium wit) beer (13 days old) and one chardonnay wine for my wife out of a potential five setup. Last night, I put 9ft hoses on both beer kegs and used the 50lb zip ties (doubling) for each side for the gas and beer lines. This morning I...
