    Hi, I received a black lager kit and brewed it. As I was sanitizing my 6 gallon carboy, I realized that the it had a crack in it. So, I had no choice to but use the fermzilla that I recently received as a gift. I was waiting to look at a bunch of videos so I would be sure how to use it. It...

    Having troubles...need advice

    Hi. Bought a stout kit early in the week in hopes of getting it before the weekend. They didn't ship it fast and it sat all weekend in transit. I bought liquid yeast with a cold pack and was afraid it killed all my yeast. I brewed, and it looked like the yeast in bag inside of the sealed bag...

    Hey. When i first built my fermentation chamber, there was a video that I found of someone wiring an Auberins temperature controller into an extension cord. You could set it to switch power to your refrigerator off and on depending on temperature. And i had a light bulb inside that would cut...

    Smaller Extract Kits

    I have been making 5 gallon brews. I have 2 pulls on my keezer and 10 gallons of beer is just too much for me. I have been wasting good beer. I was wondering if anyone has recipes or extract kits for smaller brews? 1 or 2.5 gallon brews? Thanks for your input.

    Draft pulls

    I had a valve in my Keezer stick. I actually broke a pull when trying to unstick it. I started to look at buying a pull, but couldn't find any that I like that was affordable. What do you guys have? Where did you buy? Any plans for making your own?

    Extract brew off flavors

    I have been brewing for a couple of years now, but still consider myself a noob. I have not found anyone in my area to talk to about brewing and ask questions. I usually buy my kits from Austin Homebrew. I like using them because I can call and ask them questions. They have always been nice and...

    Question about Gas

    I was wanting to ask a noob question. I am building my HERMS unit. I am copying Blackheart's build. He advocated using low flow natural gas for his burners. Cheaper, cleaner, etc. Use less too. Well, natural gas is not available in my area. I was wondering if I could get a tank and fill it like...

    Better Bottle problem

    Hey, i just ruined a Better Bottle. After putting my wort in my better bottle, I would then attempt to airate it. I would do this by rolling the bottle on the bottom edge, making a whirlpool effect inside the bottle. I would do this for 5 to 10 minutes. After my last brew, I had a ring inside...

    Am I over reacting?

    ok, I'm new to home brewing. I have finished 4 kits. First kit was an IPA from Austin Homebrew. Second kit was a Wheat Ale from Northern Brewers. Ok, had no problems, liked both brews. Then I bought a light lager kit from Austin, had it fermented and in the keg conditioning, then bought a blonde...
