    Key for BeerSmith question

    My phone bricked on me.:mad: I had Beersmith light on it. I paid for a key to let me use it. When I get my new phone will I have to pay for another key? Thanks pb

    Worked for free today, and loved it!

    I got the chance to help out at a 7bbl brewery today. I freakin' loved it! [Insert a Snoopy dance here] Anyway most of my day was all about watching and picking my buddies brain on the process. The main things I learned were that the concept is the same as homebrewing. The process is a...

    N/A beer question

    Any other time that I've brewed, the, OG, sample has been pretty good, but the final product was much better. I've been in search of a damned good nut brown, and the other day on, V2.1 I hit what I wanted so very dead on, (og sample), that I almost didn't feel the need to ferment. It tasted...

    Impressed with my SMaSH!!!

    I did my first SMaSH on 6/4. Recipe to follow. I had been real hesitant about doing this in the past because,... well it was too damned simple and I had a mental block about it working, I guess. Any how, I tried it and it impressed me. Taste makes me picture a BMC light beer but only much...

    Great, Good, or slow

    Is this fermentation norm for a 10gal batch? Moose Drool with American ale as the yeast. Instead of White Labs English Ale. Only deviation from, Adventures in Home Brewing recipe. pb

    Salvaging yeast from a comercial keg?

    I'm new to harvesting yeast. I ferment in 1/2 barrel commercial kegs. When I transfer to my cornies I get some sediment that I figure is yeast. And I get what I'm sure is yeast from each corny when I tap them. The thing is, I find that in each case a bunch is left in all three kegs...

    Kentucky Louisville KY area: Free to a good home

    I have over 7.5 cases of 12oz beer bottles that are reusable. They have been rinsed as soon as they were emptied. Most twice rinsed. They still have labels and/or foil. Many extra sleeves included. I'm a kegger kinda guy, so I don't need them, but treated them like I would, some day. They...

    Priming a keg?

    I got about 7 gallons I'm wanting to prime with DME. How much should I use? Or would it be better to force carb it? pb

    Need advice for a Sanke fermenter

    I'm getting ready for my first brew, (within a month I hope). 10 Gallon AG. My plan is to rinse and sanitize a 1/2 barrel sanke keg that just had Miller Lite in it. The keg will have just been polished off. I plan on using a standard keg coupler with a blow off hose hooked to the gas side...
