Ya I wouldn't even touch if for 2-3 weeks. I used to be secondary crazy and now I just leave it alone in primary for however long I need. I just left a brown ale in primary for two months because I was lazy and didn't have time to bottle. Only reason I secondary is adding something like fruit. This one I even dry hopped right in the primary and turned out great. Don't get me wrong, I'm no expert AT ALL but every batch I've tried to secondary has been worse than anything I've left alone. I figure it's basically like leaving it in the bottles for longer except the yeast isn't eating sugars and carving something...

I wish my wife was like that! I think you have the best scenario around! SWMBO that wants craft brew and you just learning to love it?! How did you get so lucky?!?

I am not sure! Haha. I am now starting to catch on and realize there is actually taste in beer besides water. I've gone out of my comfort zone with Fat Tire and Shock Top Shandys. Getting there! Not going to lie, started drinking them because I need pop top bottles for bottling, lol.

I've read the same thing on secondary's just use the sprocket for bottling.

My next batch I think ill so a wheat coopers kit with some DME and corn sugar mix. Keep it as simple and possible on these first couple. The first one ill be happy if it comes out drinkable.


Last weekend I was at Shenanigans, little drunk and not thinking I grabbed her a bud light.....whoops.

He has been a tone of help! Easier to learn by watching video's than reading in my opinion.

If you need bottles I have a bunch. We just bought our house and are moving first week in April and have a kitchen I get to convert to a brewery. I'm only bringing a a couple of cases of bottles and you're welcome to the rest. Maybe a case of 24 or more possibly. I don't have an exact count. All delabeled already and everything just let me know.

If you are lookin to offload some bottles I would sure take em if no one else wants em. I have a batch of hard lemonade going too and was probably going to end up bottling in pop bottles cause I was outta glass.

Darn to late to call dibs on the glasses! Oh well, I still got at least a week before bottling.

Five days in my coopers extract. Bubbling is very slow. Decided it was time to take a reading to see where it was at. Hope I am reading it right but .020. Right where it says finish on beer in the green. Kit says fermentation lass 5-7days. Ill take another reading on Sunday than let it sit for another week before bottling and conditioning. It looks like the krausen and bubbles have already resided.

Couldn't help it but try a sip. And I can taste what is beer! Now I am excited for no infection, now just give it a few more weeks and ill be able to have a cold one.
