    Found a good deal on kegs

    $28.99 plus shipping they may give you a bulk price if you get a bunch. I think they were out of Florida. I saw them on eBay & called for a better deal. But I ended up with a local guy. but thought I'd share anyway.

    Kegging Sour beers

    Just started kegging my Sour & Brett beers a while back and was wondering if anyone has any issue with infection due to a shared CO2 tank? I have separate equipment all the way up to my manifold & use a check valve. Haven't had any issues but I noticed some crap in my sour side gas line and...

    I just got an email back from Brewers Publications saying that they are working on bring back the Lambic book as an eBook and maybe potentially reprint it.

    Wine Kit upgrades?

    Okay, so i've been brewing for a while & decided to get my feet wet on making wine. So I bought a World Vineyard California Pinot Noir wine kit. It was suggested by my LHBS to make it a 5.25 gallon batch instead of the 6 to give it more body & flavor. & also I could use 3/4s of the oak too if...

    preserving beer?

    Okay maybe it's just me but I seem to notice that after about 3 weeks some of my beers taste different. I'm not talking skunky or sour but just a lack of some flavors. Such as my Extra Pale Ale I made it was like sniffing cascade hops in a bottle week 1 now they just aren't as strong at all...

    15 year old beer kit!

    I just found 3 "the Beer Machine" kits in my basement from 15 years ago. I think i'll buy a 3gal carboy & brew them up just for sh!tz & giggles. of course I'll get some new yeast first. Anyone think these will work? I guess I'll only really be wasting time if they don't. 1 can of pilsner...

    bottle conditioning was too cold now what?

    I have always just left my bottles in my basement to carb up but the temp dropped to 57 one night & I think my yeast went in to hybernation. I have moved them up stairs to where it stays around 70 & have them wrapped in a blanket too. But still no fizz.... I guess my plan is to just wait &...
