Kegging and Bottling / Re: Serving From Keg Question
« on: February 09, 2016, 05:37:21 PM »
Actually it isn't difficult to maintain a keg without keeping it hooked all the time.

Carb tablets, dry malt, sugar cubes or table sugar. A dry funnel is handy for the loose stuff.

More important is how it tastes. Smells during fermentation aren't very indicative of a final product usually.

I haven't seen foam yet with my ciders but haven't ever used "fresh" apple juice as it is unavailable. Pectin and particulate may be a source of krausen WAG.

I got a huge cider krausen this time that refused to drop until the fermenter was cold-crashed. The yeast was US-05. I'll rack tomorrow most likely and take it as a good sign..

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sam follows Guinness and goes nitro

I'm drinking the Guinness IPA right now.  :P

Nitro isn't some sort of silver bullet for any beer. The marketeers have been at it again.

I wish I had read this thread before buying. Tastes like unbalanced homebrew: too roastily bitter compounded by hop bitterness. The nitro is actually a detriment because this IPA probably would taste better with co2. And it goes flat almost immediately which is like tripping a thief on the run.

So I expect the Samuel Adams "Nitros" will be as equally bad.

Judging by the lacing that was about 5 sips. Not bad. ;D

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: What's your favorite Cider yeast?

Usually us-05 or Windsor. Windsor leaves it a bit sweeter. I like bottled cider on the dry side but have been known to back-sweeten in the keg if it's being chilled. Otherwise I don't mess too much with my ciders.

I always have believed that in part this dark layer is hop isomer residue and well worth getting rid of if one re-pitches.

Try subbing low fat cottage cheese for the ricotta.

Old thread, old faces. makes me feel old.
Makes me sad. A lot of these guys don't post here anymore...

Homebrewers fall by the wayside. Raise one for them and yourselves!

I hate to say it but Lonestar has been cheap ass sickly beer for quite some time now. Except in price.
