    Storing kegs without constant c02 pressure

    I've got the following situation. I've got a fridge to cold crash and store my beers before I move them to my kegerator where I can connect them to constant co2 pressure. I've got co2 available at the "cold crash fridge" but I can only keep 1 keg connected at the time. What i'm doing now is...

    When vacuum sealing yeast, will the yeast get sucked into the pump?

    I bought a 500 g brick of US-05 from a brewer acquaintance, and want to split it up into 10-20 smaller vacuum sealed bags so I only open each bag a few times and introduce less moisture and contamination. Plus, smaller bags can quickly come up to room temperature before I open them, preventing...

    Grain Storage Bin

    I need to build a proper grain storage bin. I tend to buy in 25kg bags from Gambrinus as they give such a great rate at the gate. Currently I have 9 of the Rubbermaid 74L plastic bins for my base malts (pilsner, pale, ESB, honey, munich, rice hulls, vienna, wheat, plus one for my specialty...

    Dextrose and hops

    So I was adding dextrose to the boil and after measuring it I noticed that plenty of it stuck to the measuring bowl. The thing is that I didn't clean the bowl and then measured hops addition in it as well, I poured a bit too much so I put a bit of hops back in the bag (and some dextrose as...

    Food Grade Storage Thread Revisited Again!

    I've looked and reviewed a lot of threads here regarding storing malt and grain for long term storage. There seems to be no definitive solution. I've looked at Lowe's for a solution. Of course, the food safe buckets aren't available locally, but the lids are. I may still go this route since...

    Malt storage - square, stackable, food safe, not Vittles/cost

    I know this has been gone over ad nauseum, but I have gone through the forum and have not come up with an answer. I hope this is specific enough to warrant its own thread. So, a very demanding query. I will be storing in our basement, 55F as an average, with a dehumidifier. I don't know...

    Short term starter storage question

    My next brew requires a 2-step starter with lager yeast. I have completed step 1 and now life has got in the way and there will be an 8 day gap before I can do step 2. I'm currently storing the starter in its flask with the foil on top, with the flask in a sterilised brewing bucket with the lid...

    Keg Storage

    Apologize if this has been answered already but I just brewed my first 10 gallon batch and ready to keg. I will be force carbonating the one keg and I would like to set the other aside until the other is empty. I do have room in the fridge so am I best off purging with CO2 and then...

    Getting the most out of a single chest freezer

    I've only brewed a half dozen batches of beer so far, but I've tried to learn and improve with each batch. My efforts have led to full batch boils, better yeast pitching rates and more thoughtful temperature control. (Got a category ribbon in my first contest!) I tend to prefer ales, but I'm...

    How Long Does It Stay Fresh?

    Hey HBT! I have been thinking of buying ingredients in bulk so I can make beer whenever I want instead of needing to go to the LHBS or waiting a week to get my order from AHS. Cost is another benefit as buying in bulk tends to be a lot cheaper. I am curious to know what is the typical amount...
