Amber Ale Recipe
I kegged up my first batch of homebrew which was an amber ale. I have a 1.75-gallon keg and a 2.5-gallon keg.

Do you guys...
I am a new homebrewer and have my 2nd batch fermenting right now. It's an Amber Ale from the brewers best recipe kit. I've only been doing this for 2 weeks and am kind of concerned about this recipe.
I think I may have made a mistake in frementing. I used a blowoff tube into a...
