    Beer Kit Fermented in Corny Keg

    exactly . no "meaty off flavors " from yeast cake autolysis . this is a classic homebrew myth. meaty off lfavors in my experience is from stressed yeast not yeast cake. a easy way to test this is to drink the liquid off of slurry that you keep in the fridge. when i harvest cake from a...

    Beer Kit Fermented in Corny Keg

    Yes or just pour it in keg why the bucket? This reminds me of dr Hans . Shake and brew. I hate kit prices in the states for some reason over here they are like 30$ for a can then you still need fermentables. I think it’s the import shipping cost that kill kits here. Pretty sure none are...

    one of the key onset symptoms that primary care physicians have to look out for is essential tremor. which is no shakes at rest but potential issues when intentionally making movements like opening a door or signing your name. foot drop or locking of the legs is also an early sing. these are...

    This is not my first rodeo...

    i doubt that its infected it looks perfectly normal to me. and it looks good ( deliscious) . i think those are normal yeast rafts. id be nervous leaving my hydrometer in there while fermenting. i have never heard of putting the aq heater inside the fermenter . i imagine it could hold a...

    Trump v Biden

    the ability for anyone to equalize the two of them is really beyond reality. there really is no comparison. one is compassionate, empathetic, a true elder statesmen , incredibly wise with experience and yes age. wisdom comes with age except for the truly ignorant. the other is a narcissist...

    First-time Lager Brewing

    although not absolutely needed either two packs of yeast or a starter made from live yeast is much more likely to give you a healthy fermentation. . another option is to ferment half a batch (2 to 3 gallons) with the one pack then use the cake from that batch to ferment a full batch . this...

    Vienna Lager Yeast

    northern brewer beat me to posting the warm fermented lager thread. i have only had luck fermenting 34/70 warm. the other yeast will make lager at warm temps but they are not nearly as clean

    Trump v Biden

    you can argue that victim shaming is worse than false accusation. the risks of being wrong in either instance is just too consequential. it can also be very subtle. i always thought that girls just should be smart enough not to get themselves in certain situations. but this is total BS. i...

    Mini Nitrogen Regulator

    Yes what he said but you can do this with a mini reg and n2 bulbs. It’s tricky and a juggling act. And. Not for full sized kegs. Basically I carb up a few liters in a min keg to around 2 vol. then pop on the nitro bulb wait about 12 hours then serve a few pints of the creamiest cascading...

    I'm going nuts over hazelnuts

    Use extract. If you look through the hundreds of peanut butter threads it becomes obvious that extract works better and is easier than nuts even powdered fat free pb2 or the like. . It won’t kill the head it will annihilate it. No head. Hazelnuts are especially oily and beer and oil don’t...

    thats cool i like stereograms but never tried that with an 8 of diamonds. i see the 15. stereograms are hard to explain . its not that you stare at it long enough the trick is to focus at a point behind the picture. its hard to get your brain to override the normal focusing. but when...
