All Grain Brewing / Different color from keg to carboy
« on: March 16, 2013, 04:34:40 AM »
Alright folks I have never seen this happen before.  My brewbuddy and I were making a 22 gallon batch of simple beer. 55lbs marris otter, 3lbs cara pils, 1 lbs of british malt with 5 oz simcoe and 3 oz of cascade.  We transferred to the kegs and the beer was light in color in which we expected.  Then transferred the last little bit of the grain mash to a carboy and the wort was red,red, and red.  Why did this happen and is this common?


Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / scott wee heavy to keg?

I brewed a Scott Wee Heavy from Northern Brewer. It recommends that bottle conditioning 4+months or longer. It is currently in the secondary carboy, would keg conditioning achieve the same as bottle conditioning?

Finished an extract kit for the scott wee heavy and getting ready to go to the secondary on it, but the primary looks a little dusty on the inside. Any suggestions or hints on what to do to correct the problem, or is that normal?

Hello everyone....looking at starting a homebrew club down here in Supply, North Carolina.  I love the feedback on AHA for the most part, but I would love to have to some one on one interaction and have a nice club going.  Any suggestions or recommendations?

Pimp My System / Still in the process of building the system
« on: March 31, 2012, 12:00:50 PM »
I am still in the beginning phase of building this system on wheels.  I will have the cooker on top and will eventually feed to the bottom as a three tier system.  I will have enough room for grains and you will notice the kegerator is on the right for the keg after I am ready to put in the fridge.  Like I said, still have a long way to go but as of right now at least I have a storage stand on wheels. lol
