Currently fermenting a NB Patersbier with Wyeast Trappist High Gravity. It's been going strong over the past 2 days, but now the bubbles are down to one every 5-10seconds. The only thing I can think of that is slowing it down would be my basement temp. It's sitting at about 64 right now, which is the low end of that yeasts tolerance. Would it be a good idea to move it upstairs and get it up to 70 to finish out?

Does using fresh hop leaves increases the taste of beer?

I will admit I am scared!! Started my first batch ever this Sunday and followed the manual step by step. I didnt see the airlock thing bubble but have let it be. It said you could peak so I did. slight crack and I looked in and there is about an inch of foam or so with a soft ring around the bucket so am assuming its working. We are supposed to bottle it this weekend although I thought 7 days in the frementor was a bit fast. Its an English Brown Ale so heres to hoping. ANy advice would be great for this noob.

7 days probably is too fast. A hydrometer reading will tell you when you've reached a steady final gravity - That is when you bottle. Don't just bottle it based on days since you brewed.

Read up on this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/begi...g-howto-99139/

Just relax and do some reading. The good news is that when you give the yeast the time they need to do the job properly, you'll usually end up with some good beer!

Don't be scared. Relax. And when it's done, have a "home brew"!

I have completed my first 2 batches (coopers lager / draught ) and the lager took at least 48 hrs prior to "bubbling" and then stopped 48 hrs later maybe a bubble every couple hrs. The draught has yet to start showing "bubbles" but has a 2-3 inch layer of krausen on top. Anybody see anything to worry about? Also on the draught I figured I would do it different and used a brew enhancer 2 instead of the sugar supplied with coopers kit.

Also thanks to all of you who have given advice in this forum I have learn a lot .

This is going to be a great obsession oh I mean hobby..... Lol

Tips are fine, but reading a comprehensive "how-to" book is better. Fortunately for us home brewers, the original edition of John Palmer's How to Brew is available free on-line:

http://www.howtobrew.com/

Since this book has gone through at least another edition and has more appendices, I recommend that you purchase his book as you move ahead.

Hope you enjoy our pastime!

{One of the things not covered in Palmer is that bears should rarely be used in brewing; they're temperamental that way......}
