    OK to Store kegged Lager Warm?

    If you transferred from fermentation vessel to keg with no oxygen it should be fine. It would also probably be fine if you got some oxygen in there but I wouldn’t risk it. The carbing in keg is a pretty smart idea as well.

    Need advice for my first starter.

    It would probably be fine with the 1 packet as mentioned but I wouldn’t waste my time making beautiful high gravity wort to under pitch or intentionally increase lag time. I make starters with dry yeast all the time. It works fine. It grows more cells and helps start fermentation faster. I would...

    2021 Midea 7.0 Cu Ft chest freezer

    @apache_brew I’ll check later today and get back to you. @snookluvr That’s the price online for me locally too but their website sucks. Just call in to your local Costco press like 1 for administrative and ask them. Just say you looking for a 7 cu ft chest freezer and they are really helpful...

    2021 Midea 7.0 Cu Ft chest freezer

    @apache_brew I’m not to sure about the 1/6th bbl sankeys. I bet if you put a 2x8 collar you can fit 4 but I’m not 100 percent sure.

    2021 Midea 7.0 Cu Ft chest freezer

    My Keezer took a dump so I was in the market for a new one recently. I came across the Midea 7.0 Cu Ft at Costco for $169.99 so I bought it. This freezer can fit my 4 5 gallon corney kegs. It can also fit a kegmenter with 1 maybe 2 kegs. Im making a 2x8 collar so I can put an additional keg on...

    Sulfur in Wheat Beer

    I would keg it. Then everyday blow air through liquid out post and then waited 30 minutes and take a sample. I’ve made wheat beers with Wyeast 1010 that have been sulfury and done this and it went away. Don’t know if you used 1010 but it’s my go to wheat ale strain.

    What is going wrong?

    @Sgl Just curious what kind of fermenter do you have? I’ve pushed beer out of glass with co2. They have the little 2 post rubber tops on Amazon for cheap for glass carboys. I use a kegmenter which is great. They are cheaper at Williamsbrew.com.

    What is going wrong?

    @Sgl Definitely sounds like it could be oxidation to me as well. Have you tried filling your keg with sanitizer soulition to the brim then push out with co2. Then closed transfer with gravity displacement or by pushing beer from fermenter to keg with co2. Also I would add more hops as well. I...

    Feedback for Cantaloupe/Kiwi Hazy build

    I didn’t even realize the hop additions! Yes I would have a very small bittering addition like 10ibus. And then whirlpool the Azacca and Huell Melon you had originally going into the boil. Whirlpool/steep anywhere from like 150 to 180 for like 20-30 minutes. Then yes have like 20-40 percent of...

    Feedback for Cantaloupe/Kiwi Hazy build

    Not sure about the fruits but I would add wheat malt and flaked wheat and also maybe not use a yeast that Flocculates out clear like US-05. Maybe try Imperial Yeast Juice or like Wyeast 1318 London ale III. Cheers!

    What I did for beer today

    Connecting my blowoff to the liquid out. SMH.
