    4 Tap Coffin Keezer

    Just finished this baby this weekend, 4 Tap coffin with the capacity for 8 kegs. When I started this build my plan was to be able to have enough room in the keezer to have kegs on standby as well as having at least 4 different beers on tap. Unfortunately, I didn't take many pictures of the...

    Simple question...

    So, I'm brewing a porter recipe on saturday, found it on beersmith, and it calls for 2lbs of Corn Syrup. I was just at the LHBS on yesterday, however it's not so "local", and forgot to pick up Corn Syrup. My question is can I just go to the Grocery Store and buy corn syrup or is there a...

    Keezer type?

    So, I’m getting ready to start building my keezer. End goal is a 4 tap Keezer that is capable of holding 6 kegs, 2 will be conditioning kegs. I’d also like to make one of the taps a nitro tap, but that has yet to be determined. I may just add another tap down the road. I’ve already bought 4...

    Question about dry hopping?

    This isn't the first time I have dry hopped a beer, but I am curious about something. When you dry hop, do you keep it in the temp controlled ferm chamber? or do you take it out? At the moment, I have 2 refrigerators in my shop, one is temp controlled for fermentation and the other is...

    Completely missed my OG

    I brewed up NBs Cascade Mountain West DIPA today and missed my OG by 20 points. I'm baffled by how I missed it by this much. I put the recipe in Beersmith with my pre boil volume and it even says that I should have hit the OG. I know there are too many unknowns for you guys to be able to...

    Kind of an Aeration Question...

    Currently, I'm using one of these along with the shaking the bottle method. I have a brew buddy who uses this and I tried to use it once, but it wouldn't fit into my glass carboy(I only have one glass carboy) however it does fit into my BBs. I would like to use one of these, but I was...

    Rogue Bombers

    So, I worked a beer fest this weekend and I was working the Rogue table pouring beer. It was a fun festival, but the best part about it was the fact that I got to bring home almost 2 cases of empty bombers! Now, my question is, does anyone have any experience with de-labeling Rogue Bombers...

    NB's Chinook IPA

    Has anyone else made this recipe? I made it last month and bottled 3 weeks ago. I tried one a week in and it had a great flavor/aroma from the dry hopping, but now they aren't AS good as they were 2 weeks ago. I don't know what the deal is. I'm still enjoying this beer, it just doesn't...

    Looking for a good burner

    As the title states, I'm looking for a new burner to brew with. I'm currently using a burner that I "borrowed" from my mom. I use it for boiling crawfish, shrimp and brewing beer. However, it is very inefficient and noisy when it comes to, well, doing any of the above. I would love to buy...

    Question...

    about head retention? So far I've made 3 batches and not a one of them has a bit of head retention. For that matter the only one thus far that has any head to it whatsoever is the very first batch which was the caribou slobber. Is there something that I'm doing or not doing that is...

    Getting Ready

    So, over the weekend I brewed up my fourth batch, a nice IPA kit that I got from NB. I'm very excited to see how this brew comes out as I am in love with IPA's right now. They are probably my favorite beer atm, but that's not the good news. Like most people I cook in an old keg that I cut...

    Conversion

    Is there an easy way to convert an all-grain recipe to Extract. I've found a recipe on the beersmith website that I'd like to try, but it's an all-grain recipe. Can I somehow convert this to Extract?
