    Funky Cider?

    I decided to make a fruited cider before leaving the country for 2 weeks and came back to an empty airlock & some wild bugs! This is my first infected batch so seeing pellicle this close made me a little queasy, but I love the picture that came from it. I am assuming it is either lacto or brett...

    Coconut Blonde Help

    I am looking to create a coconut blonde but can't get my hands on the hops I want. My initial thought was to pair some Sabro with 16 oz of coconut in the secondary but none of my local homebrew shops carry it, so I decided to use some hops I already have on hand. I have Huell Melon, Lemondrop...

    Possible issue with newly installed manifold

    I recently got a 2 way manifold from Amazon because I just purchased a beer gun filler and need the extra port. The issue I am having is that ever since I hooked up my C02 regulator to the splitter, it is reading 5 psi even when the tank is turned off, every port is set to open, and I have...
