    First Impression of Clear Beer Draught System (CBDS)

    I don't know, man. Kind of wondered the same thing myself. I cut mine a few inches shorter to remove some of the extra slack, and I'm wondering if there is too much tension on the tube now to let it float loosely. Only thing I can think of.

    First Impression of Clear Beer Draught System (CBDS)

    My guess is it isn't floating perfectly, and pulling air from the headspace too. This happens with my torpedo floating dip tube. Towards the end of the pour, seems like the dip tube is no longer in the liquid. I just give it a little shake and it's usually ok.

    Water for NE IPA

    You want higher chloride than sulfate. Typically a 2:1 or 3:1.

    Whazzup with Amazon?

    They are prioritizing deliveries of household necessities, medicines, etc. And also everything listed above probably contributes to it.

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    But he’s talking about getting to 8%, not making a 14% barleywine

    American IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    More malt...using more of a pale malt isn't going to make it darker

    Using hibiscus and hibiscus/rasberry tea for a PINK IPA... how and when...

    I wish you the best, but I don't think you're going to get the color you're hoping for with a NEIPA. Probably going to be more brown than anything. You need a lightish/clear base.

    NHC / NHBC 2020

    yeaaaa, none of this is actually going to happen.

    Berliner Weisse yeast choices

    You can literally use anything, but given those options I'd use US05

    Cold crashing suck back solutions

    Please post a picture of your collapsed fermenter next time you do this.

    Cold crashing suck back solutions

    Not sure, but the point isn't to sanitize the oxygen, it's to keep oxygen from coming back in at all.

    Your First Batch Stories

    Did you pull the pressure relief valve at all when changing your pressures?

    Commercial keg prices

    I think it's like that everywhere. Just doesn't seem to be much of a deal to buy in 'bulk'

    Your First Batch Stories

    congrats! your volume looks quite low, so some top up water would've brought the gravity down closer to your expected numbers.

    BIAB-Does mashing with full volume... mash too thin? Off flavors?

    Have you gotten off flavors in the 3 dozen batches you've done? If not, I think you've already answered your own question.

    Letting your kids help?

    My 4 year old loves to help with milling and measuring grain. I let her stir the water before there is any heat on. Once the Hellfire is going, I don't really let her around anymore.

    Weird Foam

    I had something similar happen when my first kegerator crapped out and I let the keg sit in the hot garage for a couple months. Most likely an infection.

    After an 8 year hiatus, jumping back in

    Don't secondary if you're not bulk aging. That's definitely something that's become unanimous in the last 8 years

    After an 8 year hiatus, jumping back in

    I'd be more focused on achieving a specific flavor/style than worrying about if it's orange and hazy. That recipe just doesn't look like it will result in a very good beer, but different strokes for different folks I suppose.
