I've had the same problem.  I just say "these kegs are suppose to last a couple of weeks, not a couple of hours...sorry, but I'm cuttin' you off".

No brewin' for me, but I bottled a mead and kegged an IPA.  I need some inspiration for next weekend because I'm not sure what to brew. :-\

I had this problem in the summer when I entered a competition.  The beer tasted great out of the keg, but the bottles had that off flavor.  I think I didn't clean the bottles well enough since I was so out of practice.

1214 has always been a slow starter for me, but once it gets going it has never stalled out IME.

congrats on the scores!  Entering competitions has definitely helped me with my brewing.  BJCP judges have done a fantastic job in all the comps I've entered.  They give good feedback, critiques, and encouragement which help improve on my process, recipe, and my own tasting.  I still enjoy learning more about brewing.

I always use an entire slurry from a 1050 ish beer and a blow off tube is a must.  100 IBU's might seem like a lot, but if you plan on ageing this the hops will fade over time.

Since you are using American hops, IMO you should use US05.  It is cleaner and will let the malt and hops shine through more.  Some people really like S-04, I'm just not a big fan of it.  You could also drop the Pils and just use 2 lbs of two row.

Lagers really need temperature control during and after fermentation.  If you think you can do that, then I suggest that you check out Kai's site @  I followed his Dunkel recipe and it is the best lager that I've ever made.

Good for you, Tony!  Sounds like a great "learn how to brew day".

So, last night I did a dark roast (55 min @ 325) and moved them around every 15 min.  I used Old Fashioned Oats and the smell was rather bad, in fact my wife said it smelled like paint.  The color is golden brown and I'm afraid to use them now because of the smell.  I tasted some and couldn't taste anything really bad, but I plan on brewing this weekend and it sounds like they need to mellow for awhile.

That should be fine.  I usually use 1.5-1.8 qt./lb. depending on my grain amounts.

Yeah, my well water never gets above about 55-60, even in summer.  Much colder in winter.
