    Answer me this....

    So I use the Star San. If it kills on contact (basically)....when you use it to sanitize and there is foam leftover, how come that doesn't kill stuff in your beer? Jus' askin'

    How to keg instruction?

    Is there a website, or thread somewhere that gives complete instruction on home kegging? The wife got me a kegging system for my birthday, and from reading on here I know a little bit, but am looking for a real top to bottom John Palmer-esque instruction on kegging! As in how to hook it all...

    Should I go to secondary at this point?

    So I have a Christmas brew in the primary. Brewed on the 8th. The earliest I will be able to touch it will be the 23rd (thanks work!). Is it worth going to secondary at that point or with that much time will it have had a good chance to clear?

    Piece of crap bottle washer...

    Not knowing, I thought the fermtech double bottle washer would be handy. WRONG. Piece of crap! The quick disconnect of the hose broke the second time I took it off. The cheap plastic bit just snapped in half. To boot it didn't wash for crap...

    I bought one of these this weekend....

    I live in Utah. Please read that as state run crappy liquor stores with relatively no selection. I have been doing quite a bit of work in Vegas so I go through Mesquite NV on the way there and back. So this weekend I decided to stop at Lee's Discount Liquor. For those of you that have...

    Tetley's Ale Clone Recipe?

    Sorry if this has been covered. I ran a search but could not come up with a recipe. Does anyone know of a Tetley's extract recipe? Being from Bradford makes me want the stuff. The crap in the can doesn't count. Figure I can make something at least as good as that!

    Swmbo...

    My SWMBO has been very supportive of my new love of homebrewing, and actually has been a very good Asst. Brewer on the projects thus far. She actually came up with a little motto last night while we were brewing the Holiday Ale. Might actually be a good brewery motto... "The couple who...

    Great Success!!

    So I bottled my first brew about....oh two weeks ago? I tried it after 10 days....it was pretty much flat. Real malty....really not much to it. I tried it tonight. What a difference even four days makes!! It was carbed, a nice head, and it really developed a different feel all the way...

    Rubber Stopper Size...

    What size rubber stopper would I use to fit in the small hole of the ale pail? I think the grommet is a terrible way to seal. I am only on my second batch and I think it is ripped/leaking.

    Steam Beer Question

    So I have my Steam Beer working in the cellar at around 61-64 degrees. Tomorrow will mark one week in the primary. I will take a gravity reading tomorrow, but will it take longer to get through the primary since it is a lager yeast at cooler temps?? Is it worth even checking tomorrow, or...

    Keep Your Fingers Crossed For Me!!

    So my wife doesn't know that I know, but she got me a kegging kit for my birthday. Since I found out, my hunt for a chest freezer has gone into over drive. Via Craigslist, I found one advertised. A 10.3 cu. ft., good working order freezer for 60 bucks. Bad news, someone told they guy they...

    Expensive Shipping!

    So SWMBO came uo with the idea last night of a Christmas beer that we could hand out as gifts. Great idea, I am a lucky man. So I just started and don't have enough equipment. With a batch just bottled, and new batch in the primary. I need another fermenter, and bottles which we can...

    Bottling Question

    So I bottled tonight, and some of my 22 oz. bottles were not quite full. Is it worse to have bottles too full, or not full enough, and at what point is either a problem?

    I smelled it...

    and it smells WONDERFUL. If you remember I am the guy that thought I pitched when the wort was too hot. The problems I thought were insurmountable but OH NO :ban: :mug: So it has been in the Primary now for a week. It took a while to get going, a full 48 hours before andy airlock...

    Need serious Bar inspiration!

    Ok, so we just moved to Southern Utah and we now have this 3,000 sq ft house. The best part is the huge basement, that is begging for a bar. I need pictures, diagrams, advice, do's and don'ts on how to go about creating this bar. I can take some pictures of the blank canvas tonight when...

    My House Temprature...

    So upstairs keeps at a pretty solid 71-72. Might hit 73 on a hot day. But the downstairs there is a storage room where I had planned to do all my brewing. I set a thermometer down there for a couple of days the the temps overnight fall to a brisk 59.7 or so, and during the day will go as...
