Fermenting and kegging with sankes

I’m a huge fan of sanke kegs. I use them not only for serving my beer, but also for fermenting my beer. A couple months back I detailed my intended set up for fermenting and kegging with sankes – now, after a couple ferments there have been some minor changes, and I must say overall it’s been working quite well! This is…

Brewery build pt 4: fermentation and kegging

As I haven’t quite received all my equipment for wort creation just yet, I’m going to skip ahead to discuss fermentation and kegging with my new brewery. When I sold my last brewery, my conical fermentor went with it.

14 days grain to glass

While at times I’ve been very driven to reduce the duration of my brew days, I’ve never been terribly concerned with the speed of everything that comes after. With building yeast starters, oxygenating my wort, fermenting in a conical fermentor, and carefully controlling the temperature of that fermentor, it stands to reason that I could turn around a beer fairly quickly……

My system is capable of making great beer as is, so it is mostly through my pursuit of [what I would consider] process perfection that I present to you part two of…
