    Having party today - need suggestions

    I have a CO2 tank about 2 foot high and about 8-10 inches in diameter with 5 kegs attached. I originally bought the gauges for a foot long tank and the needle is half-way in the red.

    Fermentation Question - Temp

    I brewed a Belgian Ale with a sg. 1.070 with WLP500 Trappist Ale on Sunday. I used pure O2 with a SS air stone for about 90 seconds. I used a blow-off tube for a vigorous fermentation on Monday and Tuesday. I went back to an airlock yesterday. I turned down the A/C to 73 degrees during this...

    I put a Belgian Witbier into the fermenter Sunday afternoon with a yeast starter and Monday morning it was bubbling. Tuesday morning it was bubbling every 10 seconds. This morning (Thursday), the krausen was coming out of the airlock. I didn't have time to set up a blow tube before going work. I...

    Erlenmeyer Flasks

    I live in the Tampa Bay area and does anyone know where I can buy these flasks for yeast starters. I don't want to wait to get one in the mail. Even if you do not live in this area, is there a brand name store that carries them? My local brew shop doesn't carry them. Thanks.
