    Basic keg equipment, bare minimum start up?

    bottle with 2L pop bottles. they stay carbonated for at least 3 days of drinking from and you only need 11-12 per batch. cheap effective. low bottling time, less to clean and less containers to fill. the only downside is if you crack a bottle and its not ready you waste 2L. just be patient and...

    8 year old kit.

    bottled this wine today and it tastes just fantastic. no plummy tastes only cranberry and shiraz. the wine is dry because i did not halt fermentation early but its very drinkable. im supprised the low shelf life they put on these kits. cheers to all!

    re-used yeast wont settle

    ive used a strain of yeast by wyeast 1007 german ale. i never harvest the yesast, i just repitch on old cake. this was the third generation and all of a sudden the yeast is taking much longer to settle. it is going but verrry slowly. the previous batches were much more flocullant.

    using toasted flaked oats as an adjunct.

    GAAAAAA!! im super excited! im toasting today and will brew tomorrow. i will actually be adding this to a pilsner LME and fermenting with an ale yeast. i dont really follow any rules. im thinking whats inexpensive and could work? and the pilsner is 12 bucks on blow out.

    How do I hook my Dad onto Brewing?

    diluting hydrometer sample???

    this formula will only work if the reading scale is linear. it may work in the form of a parobla of it could be inversly proportaional. i dont realy have the answer but you would need to read up on buoyancy and the affections on the solvent containing more/less solute.

    using toasted flaked oats as an adjunct.

    so im still an extract brewer and of course would like to step into the world of grain brewing. i discovered you can toast oats and use them as a portion of fermentable sugars. can anyone point me in the direction of quantities to sugar proportions? and perhaps what temp i should mash at...and...

    Fermenting 15 gal

    well one full carboy is well over..... just went and scaled it lol. its 65 pounds full. so 15 gallons will be 3 times as heavy (approx.) so if you want to have to deal with 195 pound fermenter keep searching out a giant carboy. id seperate it. besides you could use 3 different yeasts!
