I am a web master/developer during the day and at night I try to be the best husband.

Inbetween the above I like to read and play games (PC, XBOX, board and card) and listen to a wide variety of music. Brewing beer is something else that keeps me from getting into trouble.

comment What is the best way to stop fermentation?
Mead and wine "brewers" usually use chemicals to stop fermentation/kill yeast. Not sure what they use, but it is a good place to start.

comment I started with Mr. Beer kit
Brewing Classic Styles is a great recipe book. Use that after reading How To Brew.

comment Why were we able to make alcohol with little cleanliness and no sanitizer?
Turbo yeast can ferment at higher alcohol levels and that also kills pretty much everything.

comment What is the smell from growing beer yeast and is there any adverse effects from the odor/fumes
@brewchez mentioned sulfides. They can smell like rotten eggs. They are prominent in lager brewing and be a big surprise when you open your fermentation chamber/cupboard and that smell attacks you! :) Remember, if you can smell it then in is no longer in your beer.

comment Tea-like aroma in my beer
Did you sparge or is it BIAB? It may be from the long mash or possibly from an oversparge.

comment carbonating using a soda stream
I have not tried this, but I think hint one is: do this outside.

comment Tea-like aroma in my beer
It could be hops related. Can you give a bit more detail about the tea smell. Is it black tea, or flavoured tea? I am not sure if astringency can lead to aromas. How long did you mash?

comment Are Yeast Nutrients actually necessary for brewing Beer?
I just add my 0.1g of yeast nutrient to my rehydrating yeast as part of the process. These little buggers are going to be my little beer makers, so I treat them well.

comment Should I sanitize my keg posts every time I attach a quick disconnect?
@fthinker, your beer-out should not infect the beer in the keg, but your gas-in might. Use the spray bottle as recommended. Not only does it clean, but you have a bit of lubrication for get the connectors on more easily.
