    Loosing carbonation after pouring from a keg

    Hi folks! It seems like i have a problem with the carbonation leaving my beer to fast. When pouring my kölsch to a glass there is a great amount of carbonation. And the first sips there is alot of carbonation. But it seems like the carbonation is leaving the glass very fast so when drinking...

    Question on F2 in Fermentor

    Hello, I have been homebrewing kombucha for a couple of months now, and I use beer bottles and bottle caps to bottle my kombucha. I used to flavor each bottle and pour the kombucha into the bottles and do my F2 in the bottles (like you normally do), but I wanted to have nothing else but smooth...

    Bottle cappers & no carbonation?

    Are all bottle cappers created equal? After ordering a starter kit from Northern Brewery I bottled my first batch of included Block Party Amber two weeks ago along with Kveik yeast as my apartment is at a minimum of 80 degrees. I cracked my first one open yesterday. It is drinkable but there is...

    Head retention

    I’ve made a couple of extract brews and although they taste great. Original Bitter & Northern Brown Ale. HOWEVER... although they’ve carbonated with the right amount of fizz I was going for in each style, I get crappy head retention. I doubt it’s the bottles as I’ve tried a few types. I’ve...

    CO2 Levels in Beer: The Role it Plays

    Beer is one of those beverages that has an important trademark: it is bubbly, effervescent and bright. CO2 is imparted by beer conditioning (by adding priming sugar) or by forcing CO2 into a keg, this element has a huge impact in our favorite brew, and can give very specific characteristics just...

    A Series of Unfortunate Brewing Accidents

    A Series of Unfortunate Brewing Accidents It happens multiple times throughout a homebrewers career. You do your best to prevent mishaps large and small, but at the end of the day, human error is judge jury and executioner. Usually no one actually gets hurt in these accidents, and looking back...

    Is 'still beer' still beer?

    Is 'Still Beer' still beer? When a brew pub is located in an industrial park, that's a good sign. It suggests that the brewer is paying a lower rent than his colleague in the fancy neighborhood. Lower rent means lower costs overall, but it especially means that it costs less to store the beer...

    Free The Nitro!

    I've been brewing off and on with various levels of focus, excitement, and regularity over the last 15 years or so. Over the years, my tastes have swung between sessionable low gravity stouts to hop overdose IPAs and all the way back. I've had a kegging system for a long time and have often...

Then reset to 10 psi and the beer pours perfect but...

    Carbonation Issues

    So I currently have 2 batches currently bottle conditioning and they have been for about 2 and a half weeks at around 70F. Of which I used 1cup of dextrose for priming with just enough hot water to dissolve it all and when bottling would give my beer a stir every 6-8 bottles as I do with all my...

The recipe told me to leave beer at room temperature for 2 days and then move to a cooler place. Out of curiosity i tried one...

    How time affects your brew

    I recently finished my first batch of Original Bitter and was really happy with how it turned out! I knew bottle conditioning would have an impact, but was pleasantly surprised at how much better it was vs prior going into the bottle. I keep seeing people on the forums saying the longer you...

    Bottle carbonation fix

    Have been bottle carbonating a batch of Ordinary Bitter since around 4 weeks and 2-3 bottles didn’t carbonate. Any tips to avoid eating them. I guess maybe some extra yeast then sugars for carbonation, but I’m just concerned about bottle bombs!

    Barrel Aged Barleywine--Priming Sugar and Yeast?

    I have had a five gallon batch of 8.5% barleywine in a bourbon barrel for 6 weeks, and it's ready for bottling. A sample has convinced me that it's ready, and that it has the perfect amount of bourbon and oak flavor and aroma. So, will I have to add yeast with my priming sugar to carbonate it...

    Is my beer carbonating?

    Just bottled my first batch & carbonated using carbonation drops. I plan to leave them for a few weeks to condition. I was wondering is there any way visually I can tell if my beer is carbonating as it should? Waiting 2-4 weeks to open & find out if it’s actually worked is a killer! Can I just...
