    Any tricks to bitter an under hopped irish red thats way too sweet

    Oh , I see your OG now . Thats a big beer. I see what your getting at . You could have made a hop tea , but since you've already bottled your stuck with what you got im afraid of . Just serve a massive IBU IPA to your buddies first then follow with the red 😀

    If you have intertap faucets , then yes you can buy the stout tip. Beer gas comes in a different tank then co2. I have 75% 25%. I have a specific regulator for that tank as well. I think its different then the regular co2 tanks .

    Making homemade vanilla extract

    Yes the longer the better. My mom makes it and hands it out for Christmas. I believe she does it 6 months to a yr in advance.

    Use lactose in the end of your boil. Maybe use a vanilla tincture before packaging as well.

    Kegging from CF10 to Sanke Kegs

    You can get the cornie adapters to go on your sanke keg , but I would think you could rig up a transfer hose with the D coupler for sanke.

    Question about using pineapple into a NEIPA...

    You can bottle like normal. Just make sure fermentation is done because the sugar from the fruit will kick up fermentation again.

    Primary, Secondary, Bulk Aging, and Bottling: Help a guy out

    Another slow lager start story...

    Thats my process. I learned that here . Do you have to ? No I wouldn't say you have to. However I always leave beer in the fv for 3 weeks and this process puts me right about there. I also slightly carb at the tail end so if I don't have an available keg I can sample from the fv

    Dividing larger grain recipe kits into smaller brew sizes

    Yes you can seperste them in half as best you can. I'd stick with dry yeast in your situation. Do you have a LHBS that you can get stuff ?

    What i have found that works for me is holding 10psi for 10 to 12 days at 55f in my fv. Transfer to my keg and hook up to gas blend . The next day it pours perfectly.

    Looking for milk stout recipes- please

    This is a fantastic stout. I also soak 4oz cocoa nibs and 4 vanilla beans in Bourbon, vodka or Rum for a few weeks then add before kegging .

    First Lager Question

    This is where a Tilt hydrometer comes in handy. It makes it easy to know when to start raising the temp up a few degrees a day until you hit D rest .

    No boil sour

    If your not aware of co pitching sour check it out . I would do the boil though. I take it your not adding any hops .
