    Collectors Advice Needed on Craft Brew (Yellow Rose Brewing Co)

    As a home brewer and craft beer lover I get given stuff every so often by my friends. It seems I have a piece of San Antonio Craft Brew History that I have no idea how to assign a value to. A few local brew collectors have asked me what I want for it. It would be a great addition to their...

    Tricks to getting rid of that yeast flavor?

    I am already planning to use a second fermentor but was curious what else could be done to reduce the dead yeast flavor (that in itself may do the trick)?
