    Foaming problems in initial pour....

    Question kids, when I pull a pint, the first few seconds is very frothy. Then after a couple of seconds it settles down and pours great. If I wait several minutes between glasses, the next one will do the same thing. I noticed that I have a big gas bubble in the line at the keg...... That is...

    East Kent sub...

    Hey kids, I just brewed Lil' Sparky's Nut Brown for the second time. It is an awesome beer by the way. But as I gathered some last minute items from my LHBS that I was lacking, I found out they were out of East Kent. They said they were subbing Glacier for the Goldings in their recipe kits. Not...

    Help/info needed for Quilmes Stout clone

    I have spent six of the last ten weeks in Quilmes, Argentina on business and have fallen madly in love with the local beer. Most notably the Quilmes Stout. I have found to my dismay that apparently they don't export much if at all. I can't seem to find any examples of this type of Stout anywhere...

    Flaked rice vs Minute rice

    I can't remember this one to save my neck. I am going to brew another batch of Biermuncher's Cream of Three Crops hopefully this weekend. And I bought some flaked rice since I was ordering some other stuff anyway to save myself a trip to the grocery store. I know with minute rice that I have...

    Damn economy!!!!

    Well folks, it finally got me.... life/economy etc. I left work Friday to pick up lunch for me and the wife. A truck stopped in front of me to turn left and I stopped a car-length or so behind him. We had been sitting there for several seconds waiting for traffic to clear when I looked into my...

    Stupid yeast question

    OK, this may not be such a stupid question, but my mother calls me this morning and said, "since you brew your own, do you know where I can get some brewer's yeast"? Of course, what type and how much? Well, she proceeded to tell me she wants some to put around her roses to help them bloom or...

    Southampton Publick House IPA clone wanted

    Don't know what more I can add to the title. I just had the Southampton Publick House IPA for the first time last night and it was awesome. Their website lists the types of hops, and perhaps someone with more skills than myself could construct a recipe from that. But I don't really want to just...

    Renewed zest for brewing.

    When I started brewing, I was obsessed in a big way. I kept moving up, expanding my rig to the point of automated PC control, AG, 10 gal batches, etc. Every waking moment seemed to be devoted to thinking about brewing.... my next recipe, the next modification, how to improve my methods and...

    Problem with cornie post or connector....

    Let's see if I can explain this clearly. I cannot connect the gas (grey) connector or the beer (black) connector to one post on a ball-lock cornie. However, I can connect both connectors to the other post!?!?!? Backing up, I just bought a new dual keg setup from keg connection and finished the...

    Can I keg and store for later?

    This is probably a real n00b question, but I am doing AG and prefer 10g batches to make the most of my brewday. However, I can only get 2 cornys in my 5.2 cu ft refrigerator. I have a 2-tap tower and would like to have 2 different brews on tap. Anyway, can I fill a corny keg, purge with co2, and...

    Barleywine opinion needed

    OK folks, I am a "Barleywine virgin". Never having had it before, I just cracked open a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale which is labeled as "Barleywine Style". My question is, is this a decent example of the style? The other one that I have in the fridge is "Hog Heaven" from Avery Brewing Company...

    Help with Kegging purchase...

    I really hate to start another thread about this, but I am having a time trying to locate the info I need. I have pretty much decided to go with a Perlick 525SS, but I can't seem to locate a vendor that lists the Perlick part numbers, only their own. Anyone have any information that would help...

    Found excellent source for solenoid valves!

    I have been looking around trying to source some solenoid valves for my system that didn't cost me an arm & a leg. Someone sent me a link to an eBay store that seemed to offer just that. You can find it here: eBay Store - valves4projects: Brass Bodied Valves, Plastic Bodied Valves, Valves with...

    Anyone brewed BarleyWater's "Bloody IRA"?

    I found the recipe here https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/bloody-ira-68010/ and ordered the goodies to brew this one this weekend. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of feedback from others and I was looking for other opinions before I spend a ton of time on it. I am leaning more toward doing...

    Anyone know where to source solenoid valves?

    I am trying to find some 1/2" solenoid valves that don't cost me an arm & a leg. I bought 5 on eBay a while back that sounded perfect, 1/2" full-port hot water/steam, slow-closing, 120VAC coil made by ASCO. I plumbed one in and played with it, only to figure out after the fact that it is a...

    Broken Kubuntu Intrepid installation

    I have been running Intrepid with KDE4.2 for a few weeks now and have been happy with it. But it appears I broke it last night with the updates. I am running on a Dell E1505, 2.0Ghz Core 2 Duo, Radeon Mobility X1400. I installed last night's updates which I remember included xorg stuff, fglrx...

    Make your own precision SS temperature probe

    I have mentioned making my own temp probes in the past, and there has been some generic discussions but no real details. I found myself getting ready to make another sensor for my rig and decided I would throw together a quick HowTo in case anyone else was interested. I apologize in advance for...

    LPG hose sources

    Does anyone here know where one can purchase tubing rated for low-pressure/vapor LPG by the foot? I know it is available, but I can't find any suppliers for some reason. I am going to get a hurricane burner and convert it to NG so I can get 12 gallons to boil in under 1 hour. My little propane...
