    Stubborn Krausen - relationship to all grain and extract brewing

    I've been brewing for about five years, but have really kicked it up a few notches in the last six months. For one, I've moved to all grain. Since then, I have brewed 7 ales, 5 of which had Krausen's that seemed to take forever to fall. I don't control the temperature of my fermentation...

    Kegerator/Keezer Temp COntrol Prob Placement

    What is the best placement in a keeezer for the temperature controller temp probe? I built a Kegerator, or as I'm now learning a Keezer, some 5 years ago. Over the years I have always had a problem with first pour beers. I have a good understanding of how to fix this now, but I can't seem to...

    New to the Forums - Intro

    Hello all! I've been doing extracts for the past few years and have recently graduated to all-grain. With that I have decided it makes good sense to both search for knowledge and share some of mine. I have chosen this webpage to spend time in and learn as much as possible to create...
