    NJrockpd's Summer Shandy Recipe check

    Help!!! So I transferred my beer from the primary to the keg a few days ago and I gave in and added the Lemonade powder to the keg. Well that was a huge mistake. The beer has been carbing in the keg for about 3 days and I wanted to take a premature taste. Unfortunately it wasn't the...

    NJrockpd's Summer Shandy Recipe check

    Ok so I brewed today. I'm not sure if I'm going to add the Crystal Light to make it a Shandy or just keep it as is. I fell a few points short of my target OG, but otherwise things seemed to go according to plan. I the beer is currently fermenting at around 68 F but I'm thinking of dropping it...

    We no need no stinking beer gun...

    I know this is a very old thread and I can't read all 103 pages, but on page one someone said that you might lose carbonation after about a week using this method. In the video below it would seem that the bottle is pretty well carbonated as it actually stopped the flow of the brew for a bit...

    NJrockpd's Summer Shandy Recipe check

    I made a mistake writing Rice Hulls, I have Rice as the ingredient in my Tastybrew.com recipe so all of the numbers calculated were based on rice. Thanks for the advice I will look into the dextrose. Other than the rice and without the lemonade to make it a shandy how does the recipe look in...

    I thought the rice gave off sugars without adding much color or flavor? I wanted to increase the gravity a bit and I thought adding some rice might do the trick, while maintaining a light body to the beer.

    Haier 7.1 cu ft freezer for $175 at Costco

    I noticed that the hinges are only about 4" long so are you guys using something smaller than a 2X4 to reconnect the lid to the freezer over the collar? I know you don't want to screw into the side and I didn't think the silicone adhesive would be strong enough to hold the spring hinged lid and...

    How Long is too Long to Lager

    So what would lagering for a extended period of time do to the flavor of the beer?

    Lager Fermentation?

    So I took a break from brewing for a while, and I never removed my schwarzbier from the keezer. Now 9 months after posting here I moved the beer to a keg and took a FG of 1.011. That is much lower than I was expecting back in july of last year, which would make me happy if it tasted good. I...

    How Long is too Long to Lager

    Does lagering for that period of time kill the body of the beer. I left a black lager in my kegerator at 42 degrees for the last 10 months, now I'm afraid if I neglected it for too long should I just dump it so I don't get myself sick. I checked the gravity and it was where it should be, but...

    Nugget Nectar Clone

    I'm trying to make a clone of my own, but my local store is out of simcoe. Any way to make this with a substitution hop?

    Lager Fermentation?

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm going to try to finish out the week with it at room temperature, but I'm going to agitate it and see if I can get any yeast activity. If at the end of the week it drops a few points I may just let it be and maybe try dry hopping to dull some of the...
