    3 weeks bottle, somethings wrong

    Hi, My lager beer has been bottled at 24 degrees for 3 weeks now. The colour is quite dark. The taste is not that of commercial beer, it tastes I guess a little yeasty? or is green the word? The head fizzed out quickly. I thought 3 weeks it was supposed to be good?

    Solutions for leaking DIY mash tun

    I tried to make a DIY mash tun from a rectangular plastic picnic basket. I made the hole but realized the wall is too thick to fit the nut and washer.

    Drinking straight out from fermenting keg

    Hey folks! I'm just woundering for curiosity sake. Have anyone tried drinking out from their fermenting keg as a final product with their beer already self carbonated/ forced carbonated? I guess if you dont mind the yeast why not? But mabye cutting of your pickup tube a little bit.
