    Sour Flavor/Cloudy Beer in last two batches - Help!

    Hello everyone! I'm pretty new to all grain brewing, but I just kegged my 4th full all grain batch today, tasted it, and darnit it was sour again! I'd like to ask everyone what I could possibly be doing wrong and perhaps get a sanity check on what I think the problem is. I think the problem...

    Need help with AG Smithwick's Clone

    Brewed a smokey lager and the smoke flavor disappeared?!

    Looking for a Compact Kegerator

    Hello, I'm looking into kegging my beer for the first time, but before I do that, I obviously need a kegerator. Here's the rub though, I live in a very narrow house and the only feasible place for a kegerator is in one place that takes up some walking space. I've been looking around and...

    Beer got darker in the bottle?

    Hello all, This question is about my first ever batch of beer. I'm so thrown by what I just saw because everything leading up to tasting this beer has been so promising. I'm trying to brew a Spotted Cow (Farmhouse Cream Ale) Clone based on this thread...
