First time Brewer with a starter kit
kit type: Oktoberfest (purchased from true brew)
start date: 1/19/2013
beginning gravity: 1.040 (excactly as stated on the kit)
foamed for a day out of the carboy. I used a blow off for a day and put on a stopper after it stopped foaming. next batch I will buy a 6 gallon bucket. carboy is to heavy and almost impossible to pour your Wort into. I had to pour into a bottling bucket then use that to pour into the carboy Waste of time.
Anyone have any comments of suggestions please share it has been about 60 hours and it looks like it stopped bubbling (bubbles every 66 seconds). going to let it settle and bottle exactly 1 week from day 1.
I am worried due to volcano all my yeast leaked out and my beer wont be strong how to I ensure I will have a good 4.5% alcohol beer?
