    What SRM is this?

    Brewers friend has it at 4.47, I’d put it at 6 but just wanted to confirm with the audience 😂. Looked the same color at the FG reading as well (then closed transfer to purged keg) so not really oxidation but I am trying to avoid the dish water colors on these hazy styles but it’s proving...

    Sodium Metabisulfite

    Having some issues with Sodium Metabisulfite... was in a rush and keg hopped with 0.27g of it in there as well and the beer has an apparent off sulfur taste and smell. Only been two days so I am wondering if others who have used it, will this fade. Can I make it fade faster? I am looking to...

    Oat Milk

    Just to change things up a little bit and I keep reading about it.... I'd like to use oat milk in my next NEIPA. My question is, is there a certain type I should buy? They all seem to say refrigerate after opening or some of them are all ready refrigerated. Just don't want it to spoil in the...

    A38 Juice Fermentation Time

    So I have used A38 Juice in the past but its been awhile so I am trying to remember what was "normal". My O.G. ended up only being 1.065 so I pitched and stupid me forgot to shake / kneed the pack before opening it so I did my best getting it all in there and seemed to. I oxygenated pretty well...

    CO2 Capture

    Need y'all to reaffirm or poke holes in this for me..... I ferment in corny kegs and have been thinking about ways to save on some CO2. I'm not looking to replace my tanks or anything but since so much CO2 is produced during fermentation I was thinking why not capture and use it for stuff like...

    How bad did I oxidize?

    I wanted to get this lager super bright and it had a lot of coconut in it so I decided to run it through this filter First, I ran it through backwards saw a lot of bubbles and realized there was an arrow and said “oh sh*t” about half way through the transfer. Then I started to remember I had...

    Storing BLC / Storing it cold

    In an effort to be more on top of cleaning my lines I am thinking about storing two smaller kegs I have, one filled with BLC and one filled with Starsans (Distilled Water solution) in my keezer. If I did this I was wondering if: 1. Does BLC hold up for long term storage in a keg? Probably...

    Moving A Fermentor

    So typically when I brew a NEIPA I have either a fridge or CO2 on hand for the transfer / cold crash process but now it is all in my shed (because, you know marriage). I ferment under pressure in converted sankees and need to get one out to the shed to cold crash. There is plenty of CO2 in the...

    Color Question (Blackberry and Raspberries)

    So I have a 9 SRM base beer that is being racked onto blackberries and raspberries (20 oz even split for a 1.5 gallon batch).

    In Need of Advise (Expedited Time Tables)

    I know, I know - you can't rush good beer. Unless you over commit for a Halloween party.... I brewed a DIPA using K-97 last night for it to be ready to serve in 10 days. Yikes right? Usually for these NEIPA / DIPAs I don't sweat that time frame in a pinch (obviously more time is better). I can...

    Carbonation Issues

    So I brewed an Oktoberfest and have been using my typical carbonation method on it (carb stone on the corny keg lid). For some reason I just can’t get it to taste full carbonated. It’s weird like on the tongue there is some carb bite and it’s got a LOT of head but it still just on the initial...

    I Love Nottingham Yeast

    This yeast has a special place in my heart and I wanted to share my experiences with it. I have a "Flag Ship" beer (NEIPA) that I feel has only become this way because of the yeast. EVERY TIME I use it, I can count on it to get started within hours and finish within 3 days (I let it sit for a...

    7 year old Dunkel

    Found some 7 year old Dunkel in a closet in PET bottles from the dreaded Mr. Beer days. The caps were still on fairly tight, quick swish taste and sniff test it’s still a Dunkel for sure. I wasn’t brave enough to swallow (it was also 11 AM). I think I am going to slowly pour the pet bottles into...
