    twenty years? I'm afraid I don't really know. Technically, if everything is sanitized and done properly beer and cider should keep for that long, but I can't say that they'll all taste good. From a...

    Best of luck on your endeavor! Might I suggest brewing something you intend to age, that way when you have a kid you'll have a nice big brew waiting for you? Cider also ages well!

    I get that, and you COULD naturally carbonate in a keg, but that's a whole nother can of worms. I force carbonate, but I've found that keying in the pressure vs temperature lets you pick from a wide...

    I'm thinking about a scotch ale (think Founder's Dirty Bastard) to sip on for the cold months. Stout sounds good too, glad it turned out well! Hope to hear back on the amber!

    I've had really good luck with irish moss at the end of boil, and I know finers work well for cider. For beer, I always bottle from keg, and that really solved a lot of my problems. Drink the first...

    It's a bit tricky to tell if it's overcarbonated. The methods I can think of would be:

    1) Does it taste overcarbonated? You mention that it tastes fine, but would you describe the carbonation...

    I'm not trying to insult your technique, but just as a double check: Are you holding the beer glass at an angle when you pour so that the beer goes down the side, and is your glass warm or cold? Your...

    I love seeing headlines like this. Now if we can just stop China/Belgium from buying all of the craft companies we'll be in good shape!

    Blech, beets for Thanksgiving. The only beets I had that day were the beats I played while I kneaded some dough.

    Sounds interesting! I wonder if you'll be able to detect much of the darker beer in the amber. I bet some of that will depend on the strength of your hop addition. Enough hops and I wont taste...

    Definitely like angry orchard, but I steer clear of most pumpkin beer. I do like Southern Tier Pumking though, that's pretty tasty.

    Bleeding refers to letting the pressure out of the keg. I don't know why you would want to shake the keg, that will just stir up the contents and make everything foam more. My recommendation is to...

    The temperature and line length sound fine. The pressure seams really high though. Try cutting it down to 6 to 8 psi when serving (bleed first). It will serve more slowly but this should cut down on...

    Did you end up adding a temperature controller? What pressure were you running at and how long was your beer line?

    I was assuming the vanilla would go in at secondary too. I'd come to believe that flavors added before fermentation fade quite a bit, but ones added during secondary retain their potency and clarity....

    I agree, three beans might not be too much. It will depend on how long they're allowed to steep I'd bet, but I do enjoy certain beers with vanilla.

    Ciders are great! I'm currently drinking a can...

    I'm not currently brewing anything, but I thought I'd try and spark up a conversation.

    I was looking into the growth cycle and harvesting of vanilla beans (apparently an orchid) and branched in a...

    I came across this a bit ago and it didn't occur to me until just now to post it here. It's a cool idea that I'm sure has flitted through the minds of many a homebrew enthusiast and I'm contemplating...

    I can think of a lot of beer I'd rather buy for 145.00 total instead of one single beer. Perhaps even a couple tanks of gas.
