    A Quick Question about PB2

    Hello everyone! I am currently trying to create a new recipe for a peanut butter chocolate stout (very daring and original, yes) but I have known about the use of PB2 near end boil or even fermentation.

    Caffeine Content from Cacao Nibs?

I had some people over to try it, but got asked how much caffeine would be in the beer by the influence of cacao nibs. I...

    Undercarbonated or More Patience?

    Last week on Thursday I kegged 3 different beers in my Corny kegs and have force carbonated and put them back under pressure. I went the usual route of pressuring the kegs at 30PSI and rolling them for about 7-8 minutes for my Kolsch and Blonde Ale, but I decided to roll my IPA for about 16...

    Water and Grain Calculation Correct?

    I've gone ahead and decided to start putting together a few experimental recipes, however I've run into something for which I seek advice! I have calculated out that for my target OG of 1.068 I need 14.6lbs of my grains for a small 6 gallon test batch. My brewing system suggests 1.25qts water/lb...

I currently have 3 6-gallon batches of beer fermenting, but I am still not sure what method to use when it comes to packaging and carbonation. After looking around and asking some brewers, I...
