    Kegged my beer next morning all leaked out.

    You might be right here as I did have my picnic tap hooked up, that was a thought I had. I'm probably going to have to fill it with h2o and throw some pressure on it to make sure.

    Kegged my beer next morning all leaked out.

    Kegged a batch on a corny keg the next morning it was all over the fridge and garage floor. Is this due to a possible bad seal, are they easy to change?

    Thinking of adding mugwort to my beer??

    I just got done brewing a "Hopless Ale" with Mugwort, Lavender and Anise in it, smells really good but It's only fermenting right now so now sure of the taste.

    Lagunitas Knows How to Throw a Party!

    Just had a Brown Shugga ale from Lagunitas, that will put some hair on you chest. I've liked all of their beers so far, definitly going to have to get up to their brewery in Chicago.

    Critique: My first recipe, it's a ESB

    So far everyone that had tried this beer has liked it, my only complaint would be to tone down the end bitterness a bit and increase the aroma of the hoops a little. This was my first recipe I formulated and it didn't turn out so bad, a little more tweaking and I might have something. I do want...

    Critique: My first recipe, it's a ESB

    Early heat wave trying to ruin my beer

    Do the swamp cooler thing. Bucket of water with the end of the towel in the bucket and the rest of the towel around the fermenter. Something like that just search for Swamp cooler to regulate fermentation temps.

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    I'm definitely curious as to what my final product will come out as, we will see in a couple of weeks. :rockin:

    Fruit Beer Lemon-Lime Hefe Weizen

    Ok so I've been wanting to brew this and finally got around to it, ordered my grains and when they came I brewed away...BUT...something seeming odd, I got a low SG of 1.035 which I was stumped because I hit all my temps and all went well. So I got to looking and noticed that I had shorted...

    Ahh yes the old light beer trick.

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    My issue here also is I don't have a local home brewing store by me so I order my stuff, so I can't just run and get DME. I appreciate all the quick replies everyone.

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    I left out 5lbs of 2-Row, it only have 1oz total of hops. Instead of honey could I just add some sugar to increase the amount of fermentables to up the Alcohol content just a bit?

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    Ok this makes me think now, so with a lover OG I can use Honey to up my OG and Alcohol % AND with the lower OG I'm going to have more hops utilization so a more bitter beer. Now my thinking says that I can add the Honey which will add more sweetness to counteract the bitterness of the increased...

    LOL true that would be pretty acidic... Good heads up on the Hops.

    Actually I just put it in the fermenter late last night I'll have to go pick up some dme.

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    It's already in the fermenter so I might just let it go and test it in a week. Luke your right I meant OG, I work with the PH of blood quite a bit and more used to PH. As for the Lime wheat it's what the SWMBO wanted and I have to brew to her likings sometimes. Its from a recipe in HBT...

    Left out 5lbs of grain, can I somehow make up for it?

    Ok so I was brewing last night and unfortunately did not pay close attention to what I received in my order. Something just didn't seem right when I checked my PH after the boil, it was only 1.035 when it should of been in the 1.050 range. So I pitched my yeast and set it to ferment and then...

    Crockpot BBQ with pickles?

    I'm interested in the pickle one, well both actually but I can see the pickle one almost tasting like a brisket with a vinegar base sauce on it maybe.
