    Help me drain a keg....

    I have a keg of cider that is very tart. Too tart almost. Faced with the option of "cutting" it with apple juice each time I pour off a drink I am just going to get rid of it by feeding it to my friends at a bbq one of them is throwing. My current idea is to backsweeten with apple juice to...

    Brewing Podcasts

    I know there are several podcasts available on-line such as Basic Brewing, the Jamil Show, Brew Strong etc. You can download all these from their relative sites but it can be quite slow. Does anyone know of an easier way to archive / backdate the podcast like a complete collection by torrent...

    Camera Challenge

    So... :o I have a Nikon Coolpix L16 with a broken display. It snowed a few minutes ago, and since we get snow about once or twice a year (for like 15min) I grabbed it and went for a walk. I didn't realise there was no card in it :mad: and now I need to transfer the photos from internal...

    Beer Porn: with a European flavour...

    I've changed this thread in the hope of getting the popular opinion on beer collecting. Do people actually collect beers or collect the number different of beers they've tasted? Basically beer isn't cheap here and I've started to amass a few different bottles, and people have started giving...

    No Beer or Bacon !!!

    A few days ago I woke with terrible pain in my jaw. Turned out to be an infection in the gum where my wisdom tooth was half broken through. A course of antibiotics now means no beer... Now to make matters worse there has been a country wide product recall on ALL Irish pork products! Thus no...

    Brew Schedule

    There are regular threads based on seasonal brews, when to start them and if it's too late to start in time for x event. It got me thinking can we get a list together. (I know this has been attempted/done but can't find the link) *Disclaimer* I am in no way qualified to put a list like...

    Pioneer Hops

    Has anyone used Pioneer Hops before? I thinking that because it says they are dual purpose hops that I can make an extract batch with 4-5 equal hop additions of the single variety to really see what they are like. I just don't want to end up with 5 gallons of crap beer... :o So anybody...

    Carbing 1 Gallon in a 5 Gallon Corny

    Pro's / Con's ??? I'm thinking more for sodas or for small batches of cider or fruit wines. How does the (much) larger head space effect the carbonation process? Does it help or hinder?

    De-Acidifying Lemons

    I made a lemon/lime malted hard lemonade thingy awhile back and it is FAR too acidic. Any suggestions for reducing it to a drinkable level. I don't think backsweetening is a real option as it would only mask the acid and I predict this would shred your stomach like you just swallowed a cat...
