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 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.

comment Capper indents bottle cap. Is this ok?
If you are worried about leaking, drop one of your beers (cap facing upwards) in a bucket of water. Bubbles are bad. :)

comment Stalled Yeast Stirred
Oxidation can add a stale, paper or cardboard flavour and in some beers it increases the caramel flavour. Old Ales require a bit of oxidation.

comment Can I damage a grain mill by milling corn or sorghum?
The manufacturer replied that the mill will not be damaged, but that high water content may cause the rollers to get gummed up.
