  2. Carbonating my keg

    Hi all well seasoned brewers

    ...or at least, some of my grain did.

    I like a stout now and then, especially one home-made by myself. I have used Beerguevara's (BGV) Stout Kit a couple of times but I want to try my hand at designing my own recipe and, therefore, roasting my own grains would be needed.

    So I go back into BGV and order a load of good old trusty 2-row grain, about 4kg milled and another 1kg unmilled, make sure I have all my other ingredients at home and then wait for a gap in the loadshedding ...

    I didn't know what to expect, thinking it would be more like a discussion of things homebrewing, but it turned out to be totally different.

    Instead, it was a bunch of like-minded brewers, some hobbyists and some commercials, getting together ...
