I recently brewed an IPA and kegged it. Ready to go in a couple of days. Finally after my two scrapped beers (don't ever use garden hose to fill your wort on brewing day people!) This batch tastes good (obviously flat still.) my kegerator is looking good.

Thanks to all for the replies! Garden hose seems to be the culprit (and I am getting the supply from my Santa Rosa water.) Just where do I get those tablets from anyway?

General Homebrew Discussion / 2 batches ruined
« on: January 11, 2012, 08:50:33 PM »
I don't know what I am doing wrong. I clean and sanitize my equipment very well. The only thing I can say that my beer tastes like "band-aids" or old plastic. I do admit I use water out of the tap. I have not have had problems until recently. I use a 6 gal bucket for my primary and a glass carboy for secondary. I can provide all other equipment on request. I have another batch ready to go but I am worried about repeat issue. Please help.

Equipment and Software / Keg question...
« on: December 05, 2009, 03:57:33 PM »
Hello all. I recently acquired a commercial keg to use instead /or with a kettle. My question(s) is this:

1. How do you cut off the top of the keg? (what tools do I need?)

2. How can i convert it to a "lauter tun? (Pictures would be nice)

Thx.

I do use it. Zymurgy magazine, pub discounts...this website! A lot of cool things. It's defiantly worth it!

mike_sdak, could you send a pix of your setup? I'd like to see it. I use the bucket method now too.

Denny, thx!

When I can find a cheap rectangular igloo of sorts, I'll upgrade to the "cheap & easy". This site ROCKS!

I am SO blessed to live in Santa Rosa, CA. Russian River Brewing CO. is right downtown. Also they are on the discount list. Happy hour prices!

The reason I am asking this is because I have NEVER had this happen to me yet.  Does mold look like mold (bread mold)? I just need some close ups pix or illustrations to give me an idea. I'd hate to work so hard at something and loose it all to contamination.

Thx

Hello all!

I have a question about beer contaimintation:

How can you tell visually when your beer is contaminated. I'd like to know from primary, secondary, bottles, and kegs. If anyone has pictures of this, that would be a GREAT visual! Thx!

I have almost ALL my equipment for my all grain (Going cheap, cause I'm poor). I need to know what works best with food grade buckets. Styrofoam, Blankets, or sleeping bags? I don't want it to be cumbersome though...any suggestions?

Thx
