Any thoughts?

Other wise this was a great brew day.. My buddy and I hit 1.049 right on the head... I set it in the basement with a blow off hose because the head space was pretty minimal in the primary.

Keeping my fingers crossed!!!
The only difference you should see is a longer clearing time. I think there are products made to be added post boil, but I've never used them so I can't comment...

I just brewed a pumpkin ale today. I combined my cousin's recipe with a few alterations and a few aspects of this recipe.

I used 1 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 cup molasses and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (pre-mixed). The flavor of the OG sample didnt have the in-your-face spice to it I was looking for. I will have to see how the secondary SG sample tastes. May need more spice.

Hey all,

Brewin this right now. Actually about to sparge. No stuck mash but it is taking its sweet ass time, haha. Not a problem as I have a brew and the Sunday paper! Plus it's lovely out.

Hope I have similar success as everyone else with this brew!

Cheers,
Nicole

Just went down in the basement to check the fermentation status. The blow off hose blew itself right out of the jug with star san water in it. I fixed it right away but am worried about contamination... should i be worried?

The flow is out, not in. If you are really worried, replace the blowoff tube with a liberally sanitized one, but I wouldn't bother

Relax, don't worry, have a homebrew. Google is your friend when unfamiliar acronyms are posted.

Touché, I thought that wouldn't garner a hit but google knows all. Cheers, thanks!

They're the immortal words of wisdom that appear countless times in Charlie Papazian's legendary tome "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing."
