    How long will uncarbed beer last in keg?

    I have a milk stout that I brewed in March sitting uncarbed and purged waiting for fall. To many summer brews on tap right now!

    Floaties in bottle

    I bottled my Belgian Dubbel 3 weeks ago and noticed a few floaties at the top of the beer. Should I be concerned or could this just be yeast boats. Going to try one tonight.

    Keg and Carb levels, carbonation seems low

    I did the quick 2oz pour and then pour the rest of the pint. It really helped. My carbonation in all my kegs is perfect! Amazing how much foam a 10ft beer line and warmer faucet can cause.

    Keg and Carb levels, carbonation seems low

    Going to give this a try, also thinking of installing a PC fan to blow some cold air around.

    Keg and Carb levels, carbonation seems low

    Does having 10ft lines effect the first glass of beer? maybe it is because I am only drinking a glass a day so the beer coming out is the beer that has been in my beer lines. Does C02 come out of solution in the lines? If so is there a way to fix it? Maybe I will pull off two pints tonight to...

    Keg and Carb levels, carbonation seems low

    That is the chart I have been using. As long as my regulator is correct I am somewhere in between 2.48 - 2.57. Seems just a bit to light though. I wish I could have one of the experts taste and let me know if I am at the right carb level.

    Keg and Carb levels, carbonation seems low

    I have had 3 kegs in my newly built keezer carbing for 3 weeks at 39 Degrees. My C02 is at 11-12 psi. I have 10 ft serving lines. My beer is definitely carbonated but it is a very light carbonation. If I compare the carbonation of a coors light to my ale's the coors has a lot more carbonation...

    Keezer is built!

    How are you powering the computer fan? Can you get some that plug directly into the wall without wiring something special up? Where do you put the fans in the keezer? Also how tight do the faucets need to be to the shank? I tightened them with the special wrench but the shank kept slipping in my...

    Keezer is built!

    It is a 7.2 cuft Sunbeam from Menards. 5 corners can fit with the 8" corny. How cold do people typically keep their keezers?

    Keezer is built!

    Finished building my keezer this morning. Now just waiting for some of my beers to finish fermenting! Cannot wait to pull my first pint! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4913670200/

    Keezer build about to commence! Couple ?'s

    Did a bit more search and found some good information. I did go with perlick taps. I have 3 just waiting to be mounted. My goal is to get the keezer up and running by the end of the weekend. I have a Hone Kolsch naturally priming in a keg right now waiting for its final destination!

    Keezer build about to commence! Couple ?'s

    I picked up a 7.2 sunbeam freezer from Menards yesterday. They were on sale and it is wide enough to put a 1/4 barrel in it if I want to some day. I took some measurements and want to start building my collar today. I have a few questions before I begin. 1. What are people typically building...

    Just filled a keg for the first time

    Red gas lines

    Just filled a keg for the first time

    I am pretty sure I did not fill it to full. Would it be obvious if beer was getting into the gas line? The in connection seemed dry and the ball connector did not smell and was not sticky.

    Just filled a keg for the first time

    So I just filled my first corny. How full should it be with 5 gallons? It was getting pretty dang full and it looked like I still had .75 - .5 gallons in my ale pale yet. I really don't think the pale markings are that far off. Can the beer touch the small gas tube going into the corny?

    Naturally Carbed Keg and Serving Pressure

    Thanks for the info!

    Naturally Carbed Keg and Serving Pressure

    Does a naturally carbed keg still need to be connected to CO2 to serve? This is probably a dumb question but and I am assuming the answer is yes. For a party can I naturally carb a keg, put it on ice to cool it down and then hook up a simple pump still tap, or get one of the small CO2...

    English Brown Ale Bottling today! Priming ?

    Thanks Revvy! I did read your sticky several times over the past 3 weeks while waiting for fermentation to complete. When I took the gravity ready I tried some of the warm flat beer, it tasted like beer, and it did not taste bad at all. In fact the flavor profile seemed weaker than what I...

    English Brown Ale Bottling today! Priming ?

    I am bottling my very first batch of beer today. It was a brewers best english brown ale. It came with 5 oz of priming sugar. The instructions say to boil the sugar in 2 cups of water. From the table I have read 5oz of priming sugar seems to be way to much. What do you suggest? Do you need to...
