    Carbonating plastic keg?

    Hi all I have one of those plastic kegs with the co2 valves on top. My question may seem stupid but do the co2 canisters carbonate the beer or just help it to poor? If so do you still need to add priming sugar? Thanks

    Saison recipe?

    So the recipe calls for 168g of 12% sorachi ace at various times etc during and after mash. So that means i would need 672g of 3% saaz to get similar intensity? That seems way too much? Any idea on a better level for a 20l batch? Thanks again

    Both are types of wheat beer, so i assumed a wit m21 yeast would be fine? Does it need finishing with a different yeast?
