    Storing rhizomes?

    Back in January I ordered some rhizomes from Adventures in Homebrewing, choosing them because they advertised the earliest ship date (sometime in february), but long story short, they arrived today. In the 3 months that they took to get here, I have decided to move from Alabama to Georgia for...

    Coffee Beers

    As a homebrewer and coffee professional (roastery and cafe) I can say with certainty that Beer and Coffee are the two most important drinks in my life, and I love exploring the intersection of the two. In conversations with other folks, we've wondered about what kinds of coffee would do best...

    Sankey Keg to Corny Kegs

    Hey guys, I've got what's probably a simple question but can't really figure it out. I work in a coffee shop that has a 6 tap set up, all set up for commercial Sankey kegs that our distributor brings in. We've got a tap that's dedicated to our cold brew that we've got on tap. Right now we're...

    Mailing Beer

    Question with some backstory: I have a friend who is currently thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. As most do, he checks for mail at various post offices along the trail, where they'll hold packages for thru-hikers. I want to send him a package with stuff he needs (food mostly) but but maybe a...

    Time between steeping and boil?

    I'm doing an extract wheat brew, and 5 minutes left in the boil a friend calls me because he's liked out of his house and I have a key. Is there any harm in finishing the steep and leaving the wort for 20 minutes while I go to his house? When I get back I'll bring it to a boil and start from...

    Can You use a bucket for dryhopping?

    I'm looking into a recipe right now that requires dry-hopping, but I don't own a carboy. Of everything I've read here, I always see secondaries as carboys but I can't really justify buying a carboy right now. Is there anything special about carboys that make them necessary, or could I do it in...

    Could the caps make a difference in carbonation?

    Hi all. Since Friday I've tried about 6 bottles of my 2nd beer, a Karl's 90 schilling from northern Brewing. It's not very carbonated, despite 3 weeks conditioning. I know that time will help to solve that, but have another question. Could the caps prevent full carbing? I have noticed with every...

    Spilt Airlock into Bucket

    Hi all, About a week ago, I bottled my second batch. When I took the lid off the fermentation bucket, I made the mistake of turning it upside down and the water that was in the airlock found its way into the beer. I finished up the bottling and did everything else as normal. I've been thinking...

    Yeast Starter - Necessary?

    Hey everyone, I've been reading this forum for about a month now and they have been a big help to me for me to figure out things that I wouldn't have thought of or hadn't heard previously. I've brewed two batches, having started in August with an Extract IPA kit from Best Beer. I really had no...
