    Everyday Simplest Dry Cider

    @phug Thanks a lot for the response...appreciate it! I've already keg'd it last night and it is just sitting there so your saying it "should" be ok to open the keg back up and add in some more AJC to get it to the sweetness that I want and then pop it right in the kegerator? I just don't want...

    Everyday Simplest Dry Cider

    @phug or anyone else that may be able to help. I made a large 5 gallon batch of this recipe and wanted to keg some of it to try out the kegging process and also to make it easier rather than bottling. So I ordered a little 2.5 gallon corny keg since I already have a kegging system. Anyway...

    Help...is my beer ok?

    No wasn't really in a hurry I just figured with FG readings pretty consistent after a few days it was done. So as I stated I cleaned / sanitized everything and keg'd. Had some this past Saturday and it wasn't bad. A little to "malty" for my liking and dark as well. Next time I want it to be...

    Help...is my beer ok?

    Took a hydrometer reading last night and even tried a sample from the plastic beaker after getting a reading. I didn't think it tasted too bad. Not bad for being warm and not carb'd:) I plan on doing one more reading tonight and then possibly kegging tomorrow. Will give me one more night to...

    Help...is my beer ok?

    Not sure I know how to get the FG since I did not have a hydrometer at the time to check my OG for the wort?

    Help...is my beer ok?

    Yes, ok I got what your saying. I will use it tonight when I go home and start keeping track of the readings. I will give it a few days to see if it remains the same.

    Help...is my beer ok?

    Figured I would post back since when I started this thread I was not quite a week in. Well tomorrow will be officially 2 weeks so I am thinking my beer is most likely fully fermented and prob ready to be transferred to keg? I know without a hydrometer it's really anybody's guess but how should...

    Help...is my beer ok?

    @North_of_60 I like that setup...I assume enough carbon dioxide gas still leaks out of the stretch wrap to not cause any issues? I like the thermometer setup...I have a few thermo works (pen and pop) so I am familiar with their products (nice products too I might add). Also, you don't have...

    Help...is my beer ok?

    Hey all did my first BIAB IPA last Tuesday night (18th) and have not seen much if any action in the airlock. Tonight I decided to bite the bullet and take a peek inside my bucket and took a pic. It looks foamy on top and has a nice yeasty aroma to it but I wanted to ask people with more...

    Sankey to Ball lock ?

    I just received my sankey to ball lock conversion kit for my coupler. I am a newbie and have a few ?'s. When I took off the gas barb that came on my new coupler I saw a white looking gasket (I think it may be check valve). My new ball lock kit came with a black flat rubber washer.....do I use...

    How long will grains last?

    Hey all quick ? I am going to do my first BIAB and I went to my local homebrew store last Wed to get my grains. I thought I was going to have a chance to do it this past weekend but it was a no go. Just curious how long my "grinded" grains will last? They are currently in a plastic bag...

    New sankey coupler?

    Hey all...quick ? I am looking for a replacement coupler where the locking handle doesn't come down as far on the keg when locked into place. My current one is a pita to both lock in and take off because it is real close to the top of the keg (mostly on sixtels). Any suggestions for a...
