    I am bottling tomorrow and all I have are oxygen caps. The only sanitizer I have at the moment is OneStep. I have heard you are no supposed to use OneStep on oxygen caps. What can I use to sanitize these caps?

    I just openend a Brown IPA that I bottled about 3 weeks ago. It was very carbonated when I first opened it. I poured it in to a glass, the first few drinks were nicely carbonated but then it seemed to become somewhat flat after that. Anyone got any thoughts?

    How long will it keep?

    Beer for SWMBO's birthday

    What about a simple Brown Ale? Most of my friends that say "I don't like that "dark" beer" are pleasantly surprised when I turn them on to a simple brown ale. I have convinced many people that just because it says Budweiser Select does not mean you are drinking good beer.

    Dry hopping with pellets

    I am planning on making an ultra hopped brown ale for my next batch. My question is, I want to do a dry hop in the secondary, If I am using pellet hops do I just dump the hops in the secondary while racking?

    One Step film on bottles

    Thanks Nurmey, Yeah our water here in Holdrege is REALLY BAD. I use RO drinking water to brew with but I just had some concerns about the film. I will look into Star San after I use up the 5 lbs of One Step I just bought.

    Removing labels

    I am just getting started in the hobby (PASSION). I was cleaning bottles last night to get ready to bottle my XPA. I thought to myself that there has to be a better way. Does anyone have an easy way of removing labels from once used bottles?
