    Force Carbing in Mini Keg Question

    This is my first time kegging with this (I just use it to bring to breweries). What would you recommend I set a pumpkin beer at in terms of the pressure?

    Force Carbing in Mini Keg Question

    I have the KegSmith mini keg. I wanted to force carbonate my Pumpkin Beer I brewed over two weeks ago. Should I wait to keg it until I'm ready to actually drink it and force carbonate it then, or if I'm in no rush should I add priming sugar (22G of sugar for 1 gallon per the recipe) and let it...

    Swapping pumpkin puree for real pumpkin

    Pumpkin ale recipe calls for 1.5-2 lbs of sugar pumpkin. Unfortunately i cant find pumpkin anywhere in my area. I opted to buy some cans of pure organic puree. Should I still follow the 1.5-2 lbs or would you scale up or down? Its a 1 gallon recipe.

    Misread Boil Time for Bittering Hop. What should I now expect?

    Brewed a pecan pile brown ale last week. I was going over the recipe again and just saw I was supposed to add the East Kent Golding hops as a first-wort hopping before bringing it to a boil. I added it when I hit the boil and boiled for 60 minutes. What should I expect to have gone wrong? I have...

    $200 budget - what kettle should I buy?

    To piggy back off this, anyone have a good recommendation for 3-5 gallon kettles with temp and valve?

    Lost a lot of temp while mashing

    Thanks for all the congrats!! So im about 20 hours into fermentation and this is what I’m seeing. I’ve never seen a foam layer like this. Any thoughts?

    Lost a lot of temp while mashing

    I was supposed to mash for 60 minutes at 152. I still mashed for 60 but when I took the lid off the kettle, i was at 138. So still 60 minutes, just lost heat. My OG was 1.032, and it was supposed to be at around 1.051. No idea if that's on me or if it was the loss of heat?

    Lost a lot of temp while mashing

    Was supposed to mash at 152 for an hour. Needless to say my 2 month old distracted me a bit and I did not check. When time ended, it was at 138. Is my wheat beer ruined?

    Liquid Yeast Arrived Warm. Can it be salvaged?

    I placed an order from Northern Brewer Aug 15 and it arrived today. I don’t know how long the White Labs English Ale was in the box for, but it and the cooling packet arrived very warm. I requested a refund but was told it should still be good. I have it in the fridge now. Thoughts?

    10 Gallon Cooler Mash Tun Too Big for 1 Gallon Batches?

    Thanks for all the replies. Yeah I was thinking the same thing but wanted more expert opinions. I may just buy it (he's asking $40) in the event I do go up to 3 or 5 gallon batches in the future. Right now I use my kettle and it works.

    10 Gallon Cooler Mash Tun Too Big for 1 Gallon Batches?

    I found a 10-gallon Cooler Mash Tun on Craigslist with a false bottom and ball valve for a great price. I almost exclusively brew 1 gallon batches (I'm still finding my groove and don't want to risk larger batches coming out bad) so I'm unsure if that size of a cooler is too much for 1 gallon...

    Question About Dry Hopping

    So I brewed it today. Think by day 10 or so I should toss in for four days?

    Question About Dry Hopping

    Went with a SMaSH ale with Maris Otter and Simcoe today. The recipe calls for dry hopping .4 oz of Simcoe, but unsure when to do so. I've attached a screen shot below. Is it dry hop FOR four days, or ON day 4? And for both, how long should I do so?
