General Homebrew Discussion / C02 line routing Question
« on: February 24, 2011, 02:50:38 PM »
What do you guys/girls do to run your C02 line for your kegs for your frig?  Question is I have my kegs in a normal hous frig and when I carb. I need to have the C02 tank in the frig with it (because the door will not shut). What I have noticed is at room temp the tank guage reads 800psi but it the frig it reads 600psi. Is this normal meaning can I keep bottle in frig and keep in mind at room temp my bottle has more then it shows or is it not good at all to have it in there? I have seen pictures were people have and do not have in their freezer/Frig.

Thanks Again

General Homebrew Discussion / conditioning beer in keg
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:00:14 AM »
I forced carbanated my last batch and it came out great. But what I did being that I am working on frig for my kegs is I pressured up keg to 10psi disconnected all lines and was going to let it condiction for a week or so. Is this OK or will it mess something up? Should I release the pressure and let it just sit?


General Homebrew Discussion / how do you make a yeast starter?
« on: February 12, 2011, 07:53:43 PM »
I have looked and not had any luck.  How do you make a yeast starter? Is it done with dry yeast or liquid yeast? Also go you harvest yeast? This is another thing I have know idea about but would like to.

Once again

General Homebrew Discussion / how to get higher ABV brews
« on: February 06, 2011, 04:45:48 PM »
I had a question concerning High ABV for my extract brews.  How do you acheive this? Is it the yeast you use? I use the dry yeast that comes with the kit. Should I up to a liquid yeast?


Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / A question on slowed fermentation
« on: January 30, 2011, 04:24:56 PM »
Well I brewed a kit from midwest, extract with specialty grains yesterday and I had great success with the begenning stages of fermentation this morning and it has seamed to slow. Cand I gently rock my fermenter to say have the yeast get suspended again? Or will this hurt it. Also does extract brewing tend to ferment quicker?


General Homebrew Discussion / Just bottled first batch
« on: January 28, 2011, 03:17:32 PM »
Well as stated, I just bottled my first brew I had a O.G. of 1.050 and a F.G. of 1.010 which should give me a 5.89 ABV. I will say this bottling is a pain in the butt. I am thinking about kegging and my question is do you still have to add the sugar water just before you keg or no being that you are going to force carbonate?


General Homebrew Discussion / no signs of bubbling
« on: January 20, 2011, 07:42:19 PM »
Well another question I brewed my first extract coopers canadian blonde on sunday four days ago and as of today I have very little bubbling from the air lock (very little) I have not checked my gravity or even opened top. The question is is it time to bottle or sopld I check gravity and put in secendary fermenter hold for another week and bottle?

Thank you

General Homebrew Discussion / three tier systems how do they work
« on: January 19, 2011, 08:20:38 PM »
I have a question and I searched and had no luck. How does a three tier system /gravity system work? I see them all on the site and have not really figured out how they work. I want to build one just lost on operation. Is there any online data for them? What about for the abrevations for brewers? I am new to this and really enjoy it. So if you need to haze go ahead I am a big boy.


General Homebrew Discussion / First brew comments liked
« on: January 16, 2011, 06:44:20 PM »
Well I completed my first brew which was a canadian blonde and the orignal gravity befor yeast was 1.050. I hope that is good I guess I will wait for activity in one to two days. Is it normal to not see activity soon? I mean within an hour or two. But other than that hope it comes out okay.
