Classifieds / Re: Wanted: Cheap 5 gal kegs
« on: February 08, 2011, 02:43:06 PM »
Actually corny kegs [ The soda kegs } are getting harder to come by.
Both brew stores I use  say the prices have gone up tp 50+$ each
due to the supply get short on used kegs. The soda companys have g
one to syrup in a bag , and there was a hint that a lot of tehm were being
shipped overseas.
I have for some at cornykeg.com for a resonable price and with shipping
still about 10$ cheaper than I can by from brew store .
not much been on craigslist in the Atlanta area lately.

This is all good and sounds really interesting, buuuut , most of us are not chemist and I can only speck for myself
you guys are getting extremly technical for the average homebrewer that needs some guidence
with making his or her bers better,
We are not brewing on a large scale .
I read this forum alot , very seldom chime in and water quality has been a question in my mind .
This is way too technical at least for me.
What can I add or do for water that is low in calcium .
I guess I need to start checking PH levels more  ???

General Homebrew Discussion / restarting fermentation
« on: December 23, 2010, 12:43:30 PM »
Question . I  have a English style Barleywine that started at 1.080 and finished at 1.040 and obviously needs to be restarted as it should finish around 1.023.
I have racked to secondary and had to go out of town for a week or so and the carboy has been in the basement at cool temps  40-50's , by the way the beer is beutifully clear at this time.
Can I slowly warm the beer back up to room temp and repitch to restart and finish the fermentation or am I stuck with a tasty but overly sweet beer ?   ??? ???
