    Storing Hops

    Heya, I got some hop pellets wrapped up in the fridge that I'm going to use in the near future. Just a quick question, how long is it safe to leave them, i.e. will they go bad if left for a long time. I'm probably going to use them in a month or so, is this cool?

    Hey guys, I got a Munton's Continential Lager bubblin' away under my house going for a diacetyl rest at the moment. When I checked the hydro yesterday I found it was very cloudy.

    Newbie Question About 2ndary And Cc

    So if you cold condition your beer for a long time at low temperatures, much of the yeast will drop out, making a clearer beer. But with the less yeast, will the beer still carbonate? Or will it just take longer?

    Ccing Esb Pislner

    Okedoky, thats pretty cool, thanks guys. So I'm guessing I should rack it to secondary before CCing. I got a second fermenter that I've used for bulk priming, but I read you should rack it to something that has very little air space above the brew. The second fermenter, when I rack it, would...
