General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Not hitting my SG
« on: June 07, 2016, 03:21:30 AM »
The wind was variable on brew day and at times it was pretty gusty.  i tried to make adjustments on the dial as conditions changed to keep my boil at a nice rolling boil and not jumping out of the pot at me.  I was using a full tank of freshly filled propane. 

Adjusting my efficiency might be the fix for this one.  Knowing my luck these last two brews were a fluke and then I will adjust and I will be on the high side.   

General Homebrew Discussion / Not hitting my SG

I have been doing All grain for quite some time, but less frequent as I would like.  The last batch and the batch I brewed today both hit the pre-boil gravity, but missing my original gravity at the end of brew by 5 or 6 points.  Nothing mechanically has changed with my system.  The only thing I can think of why I am missing my gravity is that my boil off rate has just a little.  My volumes seem to be very close to what they should be.  Any ideas on what is going on with not hitting the SG.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg carbonation?/Beer gun?

Thank you for the advice.  I will have to give it a try and if it does not work I guess I will have to brew more beer and keep trying till it works. :)

Kegging and Bottling / Keg carbonation?/Beer gun?
« on: October 27, 2013, 04:42:17 AM »
I am relatively new to kegging.  I have a beer that I carbonated at 30 psi for 5 days.  I would occasionally shake the keg to help dissolve CO2 into beer. This is being carbed at about 62 degrees.  After sampling tonight(serving pressure about 5 PSI) The beer tasted flat, but it came out with a lot of foam and alot of sediment.  I am wanting to bottle this whole keg off with the beer gun, but this will be my first time using the beer gun.  Any suggestions on what is going on and how I would be able to solve it?
