    Two Month Break

    I'm surprised that 2-3 beers a day caused serious health problems for a healthy 38 year old

    There's some great standup of him on YouTube from about five years ago

    Best way to use homegrown hops?

    Does it get any lower moisture wise? I read I should target under 10%

    Overfilled fermenting keg and now can't depressurize it

    Well if anyone cares about my saga its fixed. I probably emptied close to a gallon of beer out, let it sit for several hours, and then I was able to bleed the pressure from the PRV without beer shooting everywhere. Removed poppit, unclogged it, replaced it, and put on a spunding valve.

    Overfilled fermenting keg and now can't depressurize it

    I can get it down to 40, which I've done now, but not very hopeful it will make a difference.

    Overfilled fermenting keg and now can't depressurize it

    I put too much wort in my keg to ferment it. It is day 5 and somewhere along the line I think the gas poppit got clogged (i have a QD to a hose to a bottle of starsan for airlock). When I open the prv beer just shoots everywhere. I hooked up a picnic tap and poured out a lot of foam (the keg is...

    Problems with Pils

    My lagers truly need 2-3 months of dedicated lagering to really be their best

    Problems with Pils

    Sounds like some propaganda from the mega corporation Brambling Cross industry. Jokes aside I have never had a metallic or unpleasant taste from Saaz and I use it all the time. I do know some hops that I get certain flavors that others don't though. I can pretty reliably detect Centennial...

    Favorite Pilsner?

    +1 for Trumer. I remember living 1/2 mile from the brewery, good times

    If you don't want to wait I wouldn't use sour batch Kidz

    Anybody use an RV Water Filter for brewing beer and making cold brew coffee?

    Doesn't directly answer your question, but most any Walmart or grocery store has a water refill machine that gives RO water for 25-40 cents a gallon Using a filter works if you like your tap water. If you live in a place with extremely hard water, like me, you'll still need a source for...

    Favorite Pilsner?

    I've never done a comparison experiment, but I have made dozens of the same'ish light lager recipe using basically every malt under the sun, and my opinion is it doesn't really matter. I'm sure they taste a bit different side by side but not enough to tell from batch to batch and I have no clear...

    Wet Hop Ale

    .05 oz of hops is kind of silly. What's that, 2-3 pellets?

    have you tried fermenting and serving from the same keg without transferring?

    You didn't ask me, but I've done this a few times before my floating dip tube, and I had both success and horrible horrible clogs.

    have you tried fermenting and serving from the same keg without transferring?

    No worries about having enough viable/healthy yeast doing that? I've been thinking about doing the same but haven't gotten bold enough yet

    have you tried fermenting and serving from the same keg without transferring?

    I haven't done this so take my comment with a grain of salt. I've also read about people here doing it just like you described, but it always seemed to me if you transfer the beer on day three at let's say roughly 50-60% attenuation, you run the risk of stalling the ferment. That's why I just...

    have you tried fermenting and serving from the same keg without transferring?

    Drinking my pilsner that has sat in the same keg for about three months now - I'd say it continues to get better with age so far

    Gigayeast ending operation 7/16

    Feel like the homebrew yeast market has a pretty small customer base and a lot of competition, but sad to see anyone go! I used their vermont yeast a few times thought it was great.

    Wilser BIAB vs The Brew Bag?

    I've used both, and just got my wilser a few weeks ago. Its way better than the brewbag

    Kegging next batch directly after previous. Cleaning keg

    I've been fermenting and serving from the same keg. When it kicks I take it out of the keezer and it sits in the shed until the next brewday (or day before), then I release the co2, soak it in hot water and my homemade PBW for a few hours, rinsed, sanitized, and filled with more wort. I usually...
