    Grassy profile

    That’s what I meant. They don’t use anything we haven’t heard of, and looks like just one malt. Is it a water profile or something that brings out a grassy’ness?

    Grassy profile

    I’m looking to brew an IPA that has the characteristics of some of my favorite, older beers- Todd The Axe Man from Surly & Arctic Panzer Wolf from 3Floyds. I’ve recently found it in Parish’s Nova Vert .. It’s a dank, grassy, very pleasant taste in some big beers. These beers don’t use any crazy...

    NB Nelson Hops

    First off, NB has great customer service as always. They’ve already worked on fixing the issue. Just a heads up though, I ordered Nelson hops through them and it didn’t come in the usual NB packaging. Came from BSG - they were old stale smelling, no pungent fruit aroma- just a dead grass smell...

    Water report Dania Beach, FL ..

    I'm trying to learn about water chemistry. Moving to our new house on Monday, hoping to brew next weekend. Can you help me in reading this, and tell me how the water in the city is. What I would need to add or get rid of. Looking to make our hops 'pop' more like west coast IPAs. Right now using...

    Brand New March Pump (need oil??)

    Awesome, thank you. Figures it works for you- we couldn't get the darn thing to spin at all, and we've used friends' march pumps before with no problems. Appreciate the service!

    Brand New March Pump (need oil??)

    Hey Walter, I've already sent my pump to Wayne & sent the tracking number to Tesco.. Any update on the pump?

    Brand New March Pump (need oil??)

    Just happened to us. Bought brand new on Amazon through Tesco Pumps.. We just dumped 15 gal, over $100 in grains out because our pump wouldn't spin during mash recirculation. This is the second brew day we used it. Day one it worked ok - we primed it everytime but it was slow to start. Today...

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    Ya I got one of these standard picnic lines that came with the keg - can I get a longer hose, take the current one apart and, install it all on the longer one? Do I need any special tools to do this?

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    So what do I do now? Earlier I purged it all the way down, and then put it to 12 and left it while I went to work. So now what should I do, unhook it - leave it - purge it fully- lightly bleed it.. TEACH ME!

    I purged the keg - set it to 12, gave it a hug - and went off to work. Waiting game now?

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    Again this is my first keg so walk me through it.. My keg is at my friends house, sitting at 22psi. Should I just set it to 12 before I go to work and leave it (and for how long?). Or should I bleed it at all? And if so, when should I bleed?

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    Ya I probably screwed it up by over carbonating.. I'll drop it to 12 tomorrow and hope it survives.

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    Got it - makes sense.. Now that it is sitting at 22psi, do I bleed it at all or just turn down the pressure to 12 and let it do it's thing. Also, the temperature sucks - it's in a fridge out in a garage in Florida - I put a cup of water in the fridge for a day and took the temp, it was at 41...

    Lots of head, flat beer - First force Carbonation..

    Pumped the beer on 30psi and shook it. Bled it out a little after 12 hours, then bled it again with no beer spilling out. Hooked up the picnic tap, opened it up and foam came shooting out with a little bit of beer on the bottom as it settled. The beer itself had no bubbles, but a ton of head...
