My only 2 kegs blew over the weekend and nothing in the fermenter. Yeast on the stir plate that I do not think is alive :( 3/12/17

        Will hopefully get there Friday Midnight, I'll send you a message :) Thanks a million, you could be a beer lifesaver.

        I also panicked and just bought some fresh yeast to get a brew going tonight. Just in case the yeast on the stirplate doesn't take off. If it does, ill get the second cube going as well :)

      Bought a Keg King pump and then proceeded to break the head screwing the valve tap onto it. Fuck! Hadn't even used it yet.

        On a serious note, the plastic picnic taps, especially with a curly hose give a fantastic pour and when you get good at it, you can alter the flow with how open the tap is.

      Step 1:buy grain mill, Step 2: wait 2 months before being able to attach it to a board, Step 3: Wait another 1.5 months until you get grain. Yep sounds about right. Bring on May!

      Reading about freezing yeast. Is it really as easy as it sounds? As my upper body is already down the rabbit hole we know as "brewing", I may as well get the rest of me down. Also another opportunity for SHMBO to roll her eyes at me.

        Why is a deep freezer better? I think I am slowly convincing that the one little freezer on the fridge is not enough, even just for food, let alone beer stuffs as well.

        Finished at 1.019. And it was on the slurry of 1084 from a stout I had just finished. Every time I checked it, it kept going down by a couple of points, and this was a week in-between checks. I should have bottled it a week ago but things came up so I cold crashed it.
