Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Lid Leak

I prefer not to use keg lube either but is does tend to solve many leak issues:)

I left, set pressure at serving which for me is 10psi and shake for a total of 20 minutes over the course of a day at 38oF and leave it be. Generally in 3-5 days the keg is ready to serve but like most beer it begins to taste best in about 10-14 days:)

Me too, I cannot access on my droid. Booted me out and won't let me log back in, tried deleting app and re-installing as well with same issue. Tells me it failed to connect to forum.

Congrats Ron! Nice article!

+1 to the comments so far but I'd give a bit more time, that yeast can slowly eek out the last few points with ramping and rousing!

Busy weekend here, started souring the hibiscus Gose, stringing up my hop plants and bottling the neighborhood ladies favorite peach wheat. In between all that a few of my daughter's soccer matches, whew, I need a beer already:)

Mind sharing your recipe for the peach wheat? My wife loved a peach wheat extract kit I made her a while ago when I first started brewing...since then I've made the jump to all grain and she keeps asking for another batch

I've always thought about just doing a secondary ferment with my saison recipe racked onto fresh peaches and peach puree with a pitch of some Bret strain
Here ya go!
Brewhouse efficiency 80% ymmv
OG 1.049
FG 1.011
45% 2 row
45% red wheat
10% Light Munich
Hallerauer mittlefrueh at 60 for 23 IBU
05 yeast or 1056
1/2-1lb rice hulls

Mash at 152 for 60 minutes
Ferment at 68

Rack to secondary at FG on to 49oz peach puree, allow secondary ferment to finish and package however you like.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Layers in primary fermenter?
« on: May 16, 2015, 06:07:26 AM »
Really there is nothing to fix, every beer, depending on ingredients and process will do different things, layering to some degree is normal as the density of materials/ingredients settle out. RDWHAHB:)

Does the "commercial calibration" section of Zymurgy give you what you're talking about?

I think that's what it's called, at least.  Where they score commercial beers.
+1, I was also reading about the new 2015 BJCP style guide that updated commercial representations of the style. Buy some of those beers listed and read the style guide as you sample the beer.

There are also off flavor kits you can buy to dose a control beer to create certain common off flavors to actually taste and learn the taste/aroma of an off flavor

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Food Grade CO2

Its my understanding no. Bad co2 has more to do with a contaminated tank, not the actual co2

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Empty Keg Storage
« on: May 11, 2015, 04:01:27 AM »
I usually clean and sanitize and leave the keg full of star San mix pressurized.  When I'm ready to swap a keg, I'll clean the next one, and then dump the star San mix from one to the other and repeat.  If the previous keg isn't pressurized when I go to use it, I know I have a leak to deal with before racking beer into it as well.

Love Epcot, only place at Disney that's for parents and you can drinkand eat your way around the world!

Same here. I was there a few years back for the Beer and Wine Festival. Lots of drunks having a beer at every single 'country'. We had a blast.
I've been to Disney many times, as a kid it was great! As a parent, well, not a vacation at all but Epcot saves the day, we always left it for last, kids be damned, its adult time!

Equipment and Software / Re: A smart-device for brewing
« on: May 06, 2015, 03:43:17 AM »
If the device (system?) measures throughout the entire process there will be probes inserted. Repeatedly. This is scary for homebrewers.

The above will have to be explained further if you want to proceed.

I'm interested in the wifi data logging but want temp control also. Price point is acceptable, but what you're offering is quite limited. PID temp controllers offer more.
I agree, if you're going to monitor the temp then make it able to adjust the temp remotely as well, otherwise I really don't see the need.
