    Possible infection?...

    I always sample before bottling/kegging, I try to sample as much as I can through the process to make sure everything is as it should be. If it tastes okay (ish) at bottling and then turns to vinegar then I will know that it has failed in the packaging stage and not the FV.

    What did you brew today?

    I Made a beer the other day and as I lay in bed yesterday I thought did I adjust the temp controller from 3°C to 21°C as the previous brew was cold crashed and I sometimes forget to turn it up? I went to the brewing room and hadn't even turned it on 😆 still, better than leaving it at 3°C as it...

    Corny Keg Serving Pressure

    Just had a thought, (no It's ok I'm sitting down), did you let the pressure out using the PRV before pouring? there will be a lot of pressure in there from priming.

    No, you're right, but I was assuming that the brew was being force carbed as it was in a corny. I usually keg my beers and keep them purged and with a C02 layer until there's room in the kegerator for it. athumb..

    Corny Keg Serving Pressure

    I use around 12psi to serve and this gives me a relatively quick pour time with no foaming and a nice head (3meter 3/16" beer line on 2 taps)

    A little help please...

    Hi @Bananaman, without knowing the OG it's difficult to advise whether it's stuck or just finished. Do you know what the instructions said that OG would be? is it a single can kit and you added sugar/dextrose? is it a 2 can kit? please advise us of any extras you added and as much detail as...

    What are you drinking tonight 2020 (part two)

    Started off with brewdogs Tangerine Clockwork IPA and then onto Goose Island IPA, Just had a cheeky half of my MJ AuPA (kegged Friday) that I added 60g of simcoe extra to the kit hops as a dry hop, it needs to clear a tad but it's very hoppy and a promising drink. Now on my very quaffable MJ...

    If you have kegged in a corny then not too bad as the pressure rating should be 130psi depending on what keg you have, no need to open the keg just use the tap to dispense into the trial jar and test when you have your new hydrometer. Have you perged it? any questions please come back to us.

    This is the type of hydrometer you need, not necessarily from this company HERE

    That's not a beer hydrometer, the '0' is at the bottom and should be at the top? more liquid needed for future brews tho'

    I've noticed the same thing since using cornies, I used to bottle the rest of my brew but now only brew enough for the keg. The bottles would clear quick compared to the corny. I thought it was the other way round but obviously not the case.

    Keezer is finished (at last)

    That looks absolutely fantastic, a very professional build.
