    Room temperature homebrew...

    I have developed a fondness for room temperature beer. Years back I worked at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. My first season, my dorm room didn't have a fridge, so for months I mostly drank what the McMurdo store sold, mostly New Zealand ales like Speights and Tui, at room temperature.

    Sulphur Aroma and Flavor with Wyeast 3942

    I made some beer using Wyeast's PC 3942. As I sampled during fermentation, it smelled and tasted great. Spicy on the nose, a lot of bubblegum flavor. I didn't notice any sulphur. Now that it's kegged, there's plenty of sulphur odor and a little flavor. I've never used a Belgian yeast before...

    Bag-in-a-box/Beer Engine

    Thanks a bunch for the feedback, McKnuckle. Sounds like part of my problem is I’ve been conditioning at room temperature just as I bottle conditioning. I’ll lower the temp and see if that works. The venting shouldn’t be a problem either, though I had worried that if I let the Co2 escape, that...

    Bag-in-a-box/Beer Engine

    Hi friends. I was hoping some of you might have some helpful guidance. Has anyone else used bag-in-a-box for conditioning and serving homebrew? I love a good cask ale, though I live in Alaska, and before the pandemic there were only 2 places in the state that served beer through a handpull, and...
