    Huge boiling loss...

    I lost probably a gallon to overboil, had to help with the kid. The color of the wort looked great and should be tasty.

    Huge boiling loss...

    I did a bad thing???

    I prefer liquid yeast too. Its just so hard for me to look at $7.95 vs $1.95 and pick up the more expensive liquid, especially for larger batches. But you are completely correct 6 hours worth of labor to make the wort, give it tasty food.

    I did a bad thing???

    I have never used a starter. This was my first batch that reacted like this. I will now always use a starter. The brew day wasn't carefully planned like most of mine are. I was board on Sunday and my LHBS was closed so I used what I had. I think it should help the ferment process...

    How much grain, 10 gallon Igloo Cooler

    32 Pounds of grain for a 10 gal batch, that is a lot. Given that you were using some extract before you sure that is the correct amount?

    Mission Accomplished! First full Keg.

    I hit it with 20 psi, then purged the O2. Then hit it with 20 again making sure the o2 is gone. Keep in mind too, I primed with sugar.

    Mission Accomplished! First full Keg.

    I just filled and pressurized my first cornie with 5 gallons of Blonde Ale. I put the pressure of my tank at 20 and purged the Keg of O2 and achieved a good seal. Do I leave all the co2 in the extra air space?
