    Gas for kegging wine

    Hi there, Do I need 100% nitrogen for kegging wine, or will the 70/30 used for stouts/guiness work without carbonating it?

    Pure Nitrogen for Homebrew

    Hello, I frequently brew at home and up til now have simply used CO2 as my gas of choice. I have decided to try my hand at a Guinness Clone, but on top of that, I want to tackle doing Nitro Cold Brew coffee. My understanding is that for the coffee, I'll need pure Nitrogen (not mixed with CO2)...

    Serving Nitro Beers Correctly

    I remember the first time I drank a nitro beer. Through various forms of sorcery, the bartender had some how arranged for my beer to have bubbles falling down in my beer instead of rising to the top. I was completely enamored by the appearance alone. With great anticipation, I took my first sip...

    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...

    Need advice on N. First time wine from fresh juice.

    I am making wine for the first time. My HBC had a bulk buy of fresh Italian wine juice, so I got 6 gallons of Sangiovese. I built my starter, took my readings, and pitched the yeast. The sugar content is 23° brix, and I am using RC-212 Bourgovin yeast. I am curious about nutrients. I read some...

    Cannon non-carbonated, non-nitrogen drink

    I have been working on canning a drink I have been selling for the past couple of years. So far reception has been good. However to increase shelf life, cut down on costs and to be more environmental friendly, I decided to ditch plastic and go with cans. I've done a lot of research so far and...

    wine in the tap box of a new keezer build suggestions?

    I like beer but I also like wine. I would really like to keg premium wine from good wineries so I can have a glass or two when I want and not have to finish an entire bottle or feel bad about opening an expensive bottle. I don't have room or want 2 keezers. I am thinking about a new keezer...

    Is Fermaid O the same as peptone+dead yeast? Can I substitute them?

    Peptone is one of the major organic nitrogen sources used in microbiology, and it's easy to buy or manufacture yourself by using an enzyme to digest protein (soy protein isolate or casein isolate with no lactose). It's not so easy to get Fermaid O in my country, and it looks like it just...

    Serving a cream ale (or stout)

    This has been brought up in several threads, but I wanted to assemble some information into one good starter post, then ask for advice. I used to think that they dissolved nitrogen into the beer to get those teeny weeny bubbles in a cream ale or guiness style stout. I don't believe that is...
