    Tower Draft System 3 Faucet Replace Lines

    I changed out the lines, I removed one one shank for room and left the other two there. I did have the special wrench. It went much smoother than I thought it would. Now it is time to empty my two carboy's and get serving beer!

    Tower Draft System 3 Faucet Replace Lines

    I recently built a house and had a kegerator built into the kitchenette downstairs. It is the under cabinet tower system that goes through the work surface. Of course this system came with 5 foot beer lines. I want to replace them with 10 footers. I popped the cap off the top to expose the...

    BB Imperial Pale Ale kit

    That is exactly right. How long did you let it condition before drinking?

    BB Imperial Pale Ale kit

    Just got this kit for my birthday yesterday, I think I am going to brew it tonight. The instructions do not mention anything about the length of conditioning for this beer. My plan is to leave in my primary fermenter for 4 weeks, bottle or keg it and let it sit for another 2-3 weeks. Does that...

    Fermentation Temps

    I probably should not have said 5 days, my pipeline is usually brewing every 2 weeks or so. It would be more like 14 days. I have not tackled lagers yet so this would be concerning ales. Homercidal, our family has a hunting area in Reed City!

    Fermentation Temps

    I know I should try to keep my fermentation temperatures under control while the beer is fermenting. My question is, is this more important during initial fermentation ie the first 5 days? The reason I ask is that I have a small refrigerator I can use but it only fits one carboy. After 5 days...

    Cream ale is a little dark

    It is still in the carboy so it probably looks a little darker than it will be in a glass.

    Cream ale is a little dark

    Well, it has been 2 weeks and my cream ale does not look like the picture on Northern Brewer. I plan on letting sit in the primary one more week before bottling. I used their extract version of the recipe, could this account for the amber color instead of the yellow color? Should I have added a...

    Thanks for the help! I figured that was the case but just wanted to confirm.

    Phat Tyre Fermentation Question

    This is my third batch of beer. It is a Northern brewer kit. I am a proponent of using the primary fermenter the entire time unless dry hoping or adding fruit. However, the instructions on this beer say to leave in the primary for 1-2 weeks and then rack to a secondary for another 2 - 4 weeks...

    Late LME addition

    If the boil was down for 5 minutes should I boil it 5 minutes longer? I know my beer is going to be fine in the end but I just want to be prepared for my next brew.

    Late LME addition

    So the chemical reaction that the hops bring to the wort still happen if it is not boiling? It had to be close but it took a few minutes when the LME brought my temp down a bit.

    Late LME addition

    I just brewed Northern Brewers Phat Tyre Ale on Sunday. It was my second brew and first that had a late 15 minute extract addition. I removed the put from my flame to stir in the 6lbs of extract, I was also supposed to add the another 1 oz of hops for the last 15 minutes. The wort took a bit to...

    Yeast starter, what do I pour out?

    I plan on using a yeast starter batch this weekend. I have seen a few pictures of what it looks like after 18 hours or so but was wondering what do I pour out before I put the starter in my wort? Thanks!

    crazy thought about cooling my wort..

    I guess I will do the sink thing then. I also ready about putting frozen water bottles in the wort. After sanitizing them of course.

    crazy thought about cooling my wort..

    Plan on brewing my first batch on Saturday. We have lots of snow so I plan on putting my kettle in a snow bank to cool it down.
