Sweet! I will most certainly give that a look

I got up this morning to find my primary just exploding with life! In fact the carouse (sp) is all the way to the top and now I am afraid I am going to have a over flow. Is it possible to move this beer into larger bucket at this time? My local brew shop told me to keep it in a clear container to be able to watch how the wort is acting. He also mentioned once it gets going, not to disturb the wort and let it finish.

Do I just put something under it and let it go?

Ok sounds good!

I took your advise... see picture

I put some Sani water into a milk jug and use that.

I hope this don't take from the flavor of the beer or hurt the FG.

Nailed my FG!

Beer has a great color, and taste just great... Well for flat beer any ways

However, I thought I would have got more then 4 gallons out of it... Sucks because I primed for 5 gallons. I hope it don't hurt the beer being a little over carb'ed

I used about a half cup of corn sugar which is around 3.6 oz. I don't have scales yet so I had to guess

Nice scale. A good scale is my next investment in this wonderful hobby. I like yours, it's pocket size too! I was going to attemp to wash my yeast this go around but I think I will save that for another go around.

Here's a picture of the final product!

This one I didn't fill up as close as I did the others. Some I got within 1- 1.5 inch of the top

Going to cross my fingers I don't have an explosion and mess on my hands.

OK well i was starting to build my own then i stumbled across a recipe online that sounds so good!

I think it might be a little over my head and the recipe says its an 8gallon batch at 75% efficient

I would like to add some coffee to this list of ingredients also...

What you think? think this is over my head or you think i can pull it off? its going to be an expensive list of ingredients so if i get this i only have one shot at it... LOL
