    Voss kviek yeast thoughts

    I brewed with lallemend kviek Voss yeast it was a total beast grain to glass in 6 days. I made an IPA with citra and Amarillo which both should taste like citrus but it has a distinctly orange kinda fake flavor. Did anyone else experience this I don’t think the flavor is the hops I’m not sure...

    CFC troubles

    Who here is using a counter flow chiller? I bought the exhillerator a few months back because cooling is my least favorite part of the brew day but I have been less then impressed. I had to add a bleeder valve in order to get the ring to work first of all. Then I don’t understand how people are...

    Keezer Co2 usage

    Hey guys I was wondering what you all think. I have a 6 tap keezer and I fly through my CO2 really fast like once a month. I use the co2 to pressurize kegs to clean them and the lines as well.

    Sabro hops

    Has anyone ever gotten a soapy taste with Sabro hops? It was my first time using them and I definitely get the coconut which was awesome but then there is this soap aftertaste that’s not so great. I know you can get soap from being on yeast two long but this didn’t even sit in yeast for two weeks.

    Can you believe this is milled?

    I put in a recipe at a home brew shop and picked it up today. They accidentally milled it and I said that was no problem the grain is a complete recipe. I go home and find it looks like this. It looks like maybe someone put it next to a grain mill so I milled it myself. I have been wondering...

    Flow trouble

    So I’m currently brewing on my ss brewtech electric system and I cannot get wort to flow out of the kettle down to the pump it’s making me insane. This keeps happening and now I’m dealing with super hot liquid. I’ve been told it’s due to aid so how do I fix it and prevent it.
