    Recipe suggestion

    When steeping grains in a muslin bag......when I was at my local HB shop I had them put together my grain mix. They have a pad that you write down what you need and they put it all together. I wasn’t sure about getting it milled or whole. They suggested milled. I noticed when I filled the muslin bag it leaks fine particles or grain dust into the wort....etc. is that ok? Will that settle into the trub?

    Recipe suggestion

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went with black beer’d porter. Went to my local HB shop. Got my malts, yeast and hops. Can’t wait to try the finished product this summer.
  3. I'm a newbie. I have a bottling day coming up this weekend and don't want my LBK sitting idle for long after this run. When I got my rig I got several extract cans. I have an Am.Porter and an Am.Lager refill left. Is there a great recipe anyone recommends with either one of those cans? Also I have a great local HB shop I can get ingredients at too. Thanks
  4. I'm a newbie and have only fermented twice and don't actually have a finished batch yet. But....I had the same problem. The seam was not flat enough and it leaked a steady drip when I tested it. I took some sand paper and evenly ran it around the outside edge of the spigot hole for a little bit. Solved the problem.
  5. Ya just forgot that one step. The 1st two times I did according to instructions. I will sanitize with shot glass prior to bottling.
  6. Thanks for the opinion. I can't wait for the finished product.
  7. Only on my 3rd batch ever. Sanitized everything following instructions. Except......I forgot to open the spigot for 5 seconds during sanitizing. The sanitizer does hit the inside of the spigot while sitting and sloshing. It has been fermenting for 2 weeks now. Gonna wait till week 3 like instructions say. Will I potentially ruin the batch by running it through the spigot to bottle? Just curious. It's a lot of waiting and I don't want it to be ruined. More info. After brewing my last batch I pulled the spigot off and cleaned it good with that cleaner stuff mr beer sells. Thanks.
