    Made my first bad brew

    Well I was off deer hunting and had to leave my brew in the primary for 2 1/2 weeks. I went to put it to secondary today and I had beer vinegar. Well down the drain it went. What went wrong? I posted before I left and was told that it should be fine, it tasted good before I went. Any advise.:(

    What would happen if i didnt ferment a lager properly? If it was a little warmer or a little colder for periods of time, would it be bad or is is still good beer but without the full lager.

    I bought a nitro tank because I read its the only way to make a good extra stout. Now the problem is this gas good for other beers or just the guinness and cream ales? I have access to CO2 tanks and extra regs due to my work so spending the money is not a problem...
