Yeah I got it from a thread I started some one posted it and taught me works pretty good.

I haven't seen bubbles in the tube or airlock since Monday. Should I be worried?

Nah, looks good, yeast are probably in clean up/settling out mode by now. One piece of advice I would give from my experience with these kits is to move on from honey and use corn sugar. I had terrible trouble getting consistent results with honey and ended up with a lot of flat beers. Arguably it's just because my process for adding the honey was bad though.

Finally got around to making their IPA. Just cracked open my first one and it is pretty good.





Damn iTouch is taking some crappy pics

After the first two or three days, I didn't notice any activity in the sanitizer/water solution at the end of the blow off tube, and not a peep when I put on the airlock. Though, I am bottling tonight and intend to test the wort to see how it's coming along.

One difference that I noticed is that the neck of my carboy is crusted with nasty dried krausen. Interesting how it doesn't appear to have happened with your brew.

Well, you were right about that. Assuming that I made my measurements (somewhat) correctly, my IPA is weighing in around 4.8%. Here are the numbers:

OG: 1.048
Temperature: 82°
FG: 1.014
Temperature: 68°
ABV: 4.8%

Don't worry bubbles only happen for a few days after that nothing. Wait at least two weeks to bottle.

I haven't seen any kind of dried krausen in the jug since pitching.

I'm thinking about going to Whole Foods and picking up some cider in the 1g jugs so I can have multiple beers fermenting at one time. I will also need some more ingredients for a new recipe. Should I go with another Brooklyn kit? My only issue is it looks like the shipping to Orlando will be around $10.

Why not go to your LHBS and try a recipe kit from them?
