    Storing an IPA in a keg

    Just transferred a nice IPA from the fermenter into a keg. I don't have room in my kegerater for it right now. How long can I store it in my 67 degree basement before it starts to go south on me? Will the hop bitterness dissipate over time? Thanks Sean

    Illustrator or Photoshop help

    I have search YouTube and found some good videos but nothing that really would teach all the ins and outs of AI. I think I'll try the classroom books. They get good reviews.

    Illustrator or Photoshop help

    I received Adobe CS5.5 Web Premium for Christmas and I've been trying to learn it on and off for a few months now. WOW! There is a lot to learn. Is there anyone out there that could point me to a good resource on learning Illustrator and/or Photoshop?! Either one of these programs I think would...

    Oatmeal rainsin Stout

    Thought I'd post my recipe for an Oatmeal Raisin Stout and see what you guys think. If there is anything that stands out as a possible "no-no" or "ICK" factor, let me know! 9 lbs ~ 2-Row 8oz ~ Flaked Oats 8oz ~ Chocolate Malt 8oz ~ Special B 8oz ~ Carmel/Crystal 120 4oz ~ Roasted barley...

    Half batch and losses due to trube.

    Thanks for checking on that! So maybe his losses are in line. The odd one might come up short, but it's to be expected. Sean

    Half batch and losses due to trube.

    I believe he transfers from the 3 gal fermenter into a bottling bucket. But the loss, if any, is very slight from the bottling bucket. Haven't tried bottling from the Mr. Beer. Isn't that a 2 gal container? Thanks again for all the ideas!! Sean

    Half batch and losses due to trube.

    Hey guys, thanks for all the responses!! I think we'll start with adding more water. It could be that the brews just had more proteins. We look forward to the next brew to try the theory out.

    Half batch and losses due to trube.

    So my Dad has gotten into brewing beer, but is only doing half bathes (2.5 gallons). He figures that's plenty of any one beer before you want to brew another style. The problem he's running into is he's losing a lot (3/4 gallon) to the trube. He ferments in a 3 gallon carboy, and fills it to...

    Adding bitterness after fermented?

    I brewed my first original recipe Brown Ale a few weeks ago and it recently went into the keg for carbing. When I did the recipe up in BrewSmith, I knew it was going to be light in the bitterness department, but ran with it. So as I was transferring to the keg I gave it a taste. It was...

    DIY Kegerator door ideas?!

    My wife agrees with you. Maybe I'll go ahead and put the taps through the door. Thanks for everyones help. Sean

    DIY Kegerator door ideas?!

    I think if I had a mini fridge that was still being mass produced, or bigger name (ie Fridgedair) I think the gasket would have been easier to get a hold of. @krazydave - I'm sort of leaning that way. Finding a full size fridge gasket and piecing it together. This all sounds a little funky...

    DIY Kegerator door ideas?!

    @woodstone. I don't have a tower on it. It's just a mini fridge. I was going to put taps throughout the door, but was trying to find an alternative to wrecking the original door. So I thought I'd build a door.
