    Nitro Gas Mix

    I recently switched over from CO2 to Nitro/CO2 mix, because I'm running a stout faucet on one of my lines. I only have room for one cylinder in my cooler, along with the two kegs. However, my other beer (currenlty an amber ale) is extremily foamy. Will it help to increase the tube length...

    Stout Faucet & CO2

    I have a stout that is going into a keg next week. I have a regular faucet and a stout faucet, ready to go. Currently I only have CO2 running, and I'm waiting for my Nitrogen/CO2 mix to come in. I tried running an ale through the stout faucet, just to see that it was working (flowing)...

    Kegging Cream Soda

    I've never made a soda before, so any/all advice is welcome... I'm planning on doing a Gnome Cream Soda with Slenda, then kegging. After kegging, do I just charge it like my beer? Do I need to run it through different lines? Am I better off bottling, and if so - do I need to use sugar...

    Gassy Beer

    I'm getting a complaint from a frequent visitor (and drinker) that my beer gives him gas... does it have anything to do with the yeast still being active? It's a Hef that went into the keg and cooler about a week ago.

    I started a batch of cider a couple of weeks ago. After pitching the yeast it went off like crazy for a number of days, then stopped. It's not doing anything now. From what I've read, I'm probably going to let it sit (for a long time), and eventually in colder temperatures to help clarify it...

    Dry Hopping

    If I want a good hop aroma, but I want to limit the overal hop flavor (I have some who partake and complain if my IPA is to hoppy) can I accomplish this with dry hopping, or am I going to do just the opposite?

    Guiness Clone

    Anyone have a good Guiness Clone? I've tried a couple of stouts in the past, and I've found a few "clone tries," but I'm looking for that same rich, creamy, full finish... Thanks all!

    Kegging Cider

    I batched my first cider about a week ago (the same night that I started a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat clone). The thing fizzed like mad for about four days - then stopped! I know I've gotta let it sit for a while, but eventually I'm going to want to keg it and but it in the back yard BBQ island...
