    How long does Wyeast Activator yeast stay good?

    I've got a pack of Wyeast Activator liquid yeast with a date of 9/13/10 in the back of my fridge. It has puffed up a bit, but not as big as they usually do when you smack them. I was planning on using it for a brew day on Saturday, but the Mr. Malty calculator says that its only 10% viable...

    Hello My Name Is...

    Thought it would be a cool idea... A little tiresome writing all them out by hand, but I only bottled 15 of this batch. :mug:

    Sanity Check: Before I start spending money and drilling.

    Hello. I am putting together a basic, gravity fed, AG setup. I have some old gorilla shelf units and turkey fryer bases that I'm going to use. Vessels will be 2 keggles and one cooler MLT. I already have the cooler converted using a bulkhead kit and stainless braid. I just recently bought...

    Secondary Floaters

    I bought Northern Brewer's Kinderweisse Limited Edition kit. Primary went okay, my OG was a little low. I racked it into my secondary and this morning I was going to rack it into a keg when I noticed this. I realize this is a sour beer, no boil, and it gets its sourness from bacteria...

    New AG Brewer

    Hey guys. I'm making the switch to AG on my next brew. I've got my cooler MLT and my keggles all ready. Now I'm looking for recipe suggestions. I've thought about ordering an AG kit from an online vendor, but I thought I might post up and see if anyone has any suggestions. I'm open to most...

    Coleman Xtreme 50qt MLT Question

    So I want to make the jump from Extract to AG Brewing. I went out and bought a Coleman Xtreme 50qt and ordered a bulkhead fitting kit from NB. I just finished installing the fittings and leak testing when I had a thought. this basically puts the end of my braid in such a way that i'll...

    Can I Get a Crash Course?

    So I decided to step up from extract and try AG brewing. For my first batch, I figured it would be easier to just buy a kit from Northern Brewer than try to follow a recipe. However, all that came with the NB kit was the ingredients, and the following information... Mash Schedule 153° F...

    3 Keggle Setup vs 2 Keggle/Cooler MLT Setup

    I've got a few bucks left over from the holidays so I'm going to dive into an AG setup. I already have one 1/2 barrel keggle that i've been using for extract batches, and I have sourced 2 more kegs locally. Is there a significiant benefit to having 3 Keggles for a AG brewing rig over 2 Keggles...

    No Lid For Brewpot

    So I'm getting ready for a small brew day today of two 5 gal extract kits, and I can't find the lid to my brew pot. I'm fearing that it may have been thrown away accidentally on my last larger brew day. Can I brew without the lid? I assume I should be okay...right? Anyone know of an online...

    Home Brewery Name

    Just for grins I was thinking of coming up with a home brewery name. Maybe some day in life I could make a real brewery out of it, but right now its just something fun to put on labels for bottles and whatever. At first I thought of using something that goes along with my username on here...

    Legal Questions

    So a buddy of mine's Wife sampled one of the extract brews I made and loved it. She is starting her own catering company, out of her house, and keeps asking me to brew beer to pair with the meals she is going to offer. I like the idea of making a little money for something I enjoy doing, but...

    How long does extract last?

    I bought an extract kit in the spring and it got too hot here before I had a chance to brew it. How long do you guys think the shelf life of extract and honey that came with it is? It's been in the box it shipped in sitting in one of my kitchen cabinets since it arrived.

    Noob Grower, Dead? Bine

    So I planted late this season just to grow as a hobby. I wasn't expecting to get a really large output of cones. I planted one in each half barrel pot, with potting soil from the local nursery. I've posted a few times in this section, so some of you may have an idea of what I've done...
