    Hello From Maine

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I hail from Skowvegas area (Skowhegan that is). The brewing sure has been more fun than the snow clean up this winter.

    Bottling from Kegs

    So bottling your high gravity beers from a forced carbed keg works better for you then from priming and bottle conditioning? Do these bottles hold up for long periods of time? I'd only be interested in doing this for a couple of months anyway. I seriously don't see a batch lasting me any longer...

    Bottling from Kegs

    Would there be any differences if you were to decide to bottle from the keg as opposed to bottling from the fermenter? Will the life expectancy of the bottles be any less in the beer bottled from the keg? Thanks for your responses!!!

    Hello From Maine

    First batch was a Brickwarmer Holiday Red from Northern Brewer. Came out pretty good actually. The second batch is an Irish Red also from Northern Brewer. That just went into the primary a couple of days ago. Already planning the third batch. I'm going to try out a Zombie Dust extract clone...

    Keg Shelf Life

    Thanks for the responses guys. I figured temperature would help decide the age of the kegged beer. Also, would there be any differences if you were to decide to bottle from the keg as opposed to bottling from the fermenter? Will the life expectancy of the bottles be any less in the beer...

    Flat Glass Electric Range Question

    That's a good call on the bottom of the pot being uneven and the heat losses. The kettle is very thin. Also, I haven't tried putting the lid on the pot. Everything I have read thus far has contradicted doing so. I was under the impression that it would create a bitter aftertaste. I didn't know...

    Keg Shelf Life

    What is the shelf life of kegged beer? Does temperature have any affect on it? Right now I bottle at the moment but am considering kegging. Thank you!

    Flat Glass Electric Range Question

    I have a flat glass range on my stove. I know it is not ideal for brewing but it is what I have to work with at the moment. I have a 5 gal canning jar enamel pot that I brew with. I am brewing 3.67 gal partial boil extract batches and adding top off water to the fermenter. My issue is this...
