    Cleaning a freshly purchased corny keg that smells bad?

    Hi! Fairly new to cider and loving it. I've purchased a used corny keg and some other parts from a guy locally. While I was there to pick it up he realized he'd left a kiwi beer in the keg (I don't know how long). There was a thick brown film on inside when I got the keg that didn't come off...

    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.

    Are there any difference in time when to bottle or kegging

    Hi! I'm not that experienced in brewing beer. But i have a keg. I just found out it's better to let the beer ferment another week after it has stopped bubbeling, and then bottle the beer. I heard doing this will improve the taste of the beer. Also this is to prevent the bottles from popping...

    Craft The Perfect Draft Mini-Kegs

    About three years ago the brewing bug had bitten pretty hard, according to SWMBO beer was all I ever seemed to talk about. I'll admit that hasn't really changed over the years, but I was surprised to get an EdgeStar Deluxe Mini Kegerator as a gift that year. After all I had just bought a new...

    Odd Flavor from 2nd Keg

    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. My first keg tasted great, however, my second key has an off flavor that I just can't quite place. It's not terrible but not pleasant either. There was probably a month or a little more...
