So I cleaned all my surfaces and got to work. It really did not take much time to get everything into the keg.
But I did come across a very unusual problem. If you look closely you can see the whole that the tap goes into. Well, the keg my mom bought me was defective, the whole was too small. Now being a man small holes are often what we want, you know.....more friction hehehehehe. But here a smaller hole is not a good thing. I could not get the damn tap thing to go in, typical man cannt get it in without help. Well, I was tempted to pull out the old drill and make it bigger but I thought better of that. And since I still had my old one I cleaned it out and used that one. I later called Mr. Beer and told them about it and they sent me a new one, without any problems. I love this company!
So I got the sticky worth in the key and put it in the basement. I have to keep it somewhere it wont get to cold and will not be harassed my someone looking like this:
The instructions said to let it stay for at least 2 weeks but I have now had it down there for 3 weeks. They said there was nothing wrong with letting it set for longer, and that actually doing so will be better. I now have my bottles, the caps and the sugar, I will be going to the next step this weekend. Then it will be another 2 weeks before I can drink it, but that is ok. I just want it to fuking work damn it!
I have always wanted to make my own brew, this is more of the retard prove way but someday i would love to go pro.....does anyone know how to make real home brew?
