    Beer Gas Setup - Who has made the leap?

    I have always had my eye on running beer gas for a stout tap, but for whatever reason have not made the leap. Who has made this leap and was it worth it? Is it as easy as dedicating a tap, buying another tank and regulator, and pouring a great pint? Any recommendation or pointers on making it...

    Favorite American Pale Ale Yeast

    I have been on a 12 year journey to brew the perfect pale ale, and have used all sorts of yeast, malt and hop combinations. I have this nagging feeling that there is a yeast out there, that will compliment my pale perfectly, I just don’t know if I have found it yet. There are trade offs with dry...

    The Wiring to my EBIAB Element Fried - Help

    So about 45 mins into the boil of my last brew session my temp dropped to about 201 and wouldn't climb. I messed with everything I could think of and let things limp across the finish line without figuring anything out. After things cooled down I pulled things apart, I found the insulation on...

    Beer at work?

    I know of a few former co-workers that have moved on to companies that have beer fridges at work and have very loose policies/ encourage drinking at work (obviously as long as they don't get carried away). Does anyone work for a company like this? It seems a lot of the young tech. Companies and...

    Such thing as too long of beer lines?

    I just built a 5 tap keezer and bought 100' of 3/16" beverage line. I figured I had extra so I might as well make the lines extra long to prevent foaming. I ran each line 15' long and the tails on my shanks are the super skinny tails that are like 1/8" almost. The problem is at 11psi and 42...

    Rough Morning - Kegging Issue

    I brewed up a 5 gallon batch of an APA that I naturally carbonated in the keg for the first time. After two weeks of carbing up I put two stainless steel mesh tee balls of cascade in the keg to dry hop. Pulled the relief valve last night to remove the dry hops and beer shot everywhere. I threw...
