    Has anyone used this hop? I picked some up at Homebrew Con and am interested in using it, but can find no info on its taste profile. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Keg posts

    Thank you all for responding. The two kegs I bought previously both have posts that are 11/16, I use the same deep socket for those. The 11/16 will not fit on these posts, hence the reason for the post. Although, they look to be from Canada, maybe that is the issue. Thanks again.

    Keg posts

    I recently got four used kegs. The problem is I have no idea how to remove these stems. They are not standard by far. Any idea what kind of wrench, socket or tool to use to get these off and replace them with standard posts? Than you in advance.

    Where my teachers at?

    Online/Home School tutor all subjects, K-12. It gets sporty at times, but the kids are the key.

    I recently brewed my 6th all grain beer and have had issues with low efficiency. After research every aspect of my brewing, I have found the culprit. My lack of knowledge brewing all grain led me to use distilled water. My next batch I am going to use spring water. At this time I do not have the...

    Fourth all grain brew

    Thank you all! This helps a lot. Concentrate on my process and gain bill/hop schedule and variety, and use a trusted yeast, then experiment. I truly love brewing. Best hobby/obsession out there.

    Fourth all grain brew

    No way, once you have the process down, you take it up a notch, I get that. What I am truly asking is if there was a point that all of you felt comfortable experimenting with new, to you, yeast. I get mixed results with different strains. Is there a database of yeast strains with reviews of...

    Fourth all grain brew

    The first one turned out horrible, but it was a new yeast. The second one got a bad crush, but is a tasty table saison. The third is one week in the fermenter, a DIPA, is still chugging away. Today I brewed an ESB that I pitched Nottingham into, first time for this yeast. The process is going...

    Something tells me i am not responsible enough to have a kegerator...

    Just set mine up this last week and tapped my first beer on Wednesday, a DIPA. My kids are at their mom's and my wife has been working nights all weekend. That keg is getting very light. I may need adult supervision.

    I recently got this as a gift from a friend, but it was cold. I have kept it in the beer fridge for the last few weeks, but would like to cellar it. Would it be okay to take it out of the fridge and store it at 55 degrees? Or, will it age in the fridge? My fear is off flavors from going from...

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    Thinking about a Zombie Dust clone...or, a mosaic/citra IPA. Will decide at the store.

    I am helping judge at a local competition this weekend and am a bit worried about what to expect. I have studied and tried listed examples of each beer in the comp. perhaps having a nice home brew will chill me out. Any pointers from anyone?

    Denver Breweries

    River North was fantastic (great twists on Belgium styles) and yes, Lost Highway was hit. Funny, I did not expect the altitude to effect my drinking, but I realized early that the choice to have flights was a good one. Tonight I am drinking Dank IPA, Dude's Brews, rather tasty. Off to the MIL's...

    Denver Breweries

    Today is the last day of our drinking through Denver trip. We have hit 13 breweries so far, with three to go today. So far the highlights have been finding Pliny at the Cheeky Monk, not a brewery, but I wanted to try it, and Epic. The biggest disappointment has been Mutual Friend, their beers...

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    Just finished a 5 gallon extract Pale Ale. I used some mystery wild hops a friend brought from the Pacific Northwest. This was the first time that I used whole hops and they sucked up about 1/2 gallon, which I did not account for. So, I actually got 4 1/2 gallons. Using S-04. Looking forward to...
