    Like many on this forum, I too had nearly given up on BMW. I was driving the 3 hours to a
    "L"HBS rather than dealing with BMW's terrible shipping. I gave them one last attempt on
    Wednesday. My order w...

  • Posted in thread: bottling noob mead question on 11-06-2013 at 03:56 PM
    Not a dumb question at all. I prefer to batch prime rather than doing each bottle individually.
    For my sparkling mead I use 1 oz of priming sugar per gallon. It is quite effervescent but not
    over carb...

    Thank you all for putting my mind at ease. Yes, there is a bit of krausen so I suppose the
    oxygen did kick things up again. Thanks again!

    I had a strong ale in the primary for a month. I racked to a secondary using the most careful
    sanitation processes I can muster. After three days in the secondary I have signs of
    fermentation again. I...

  • Posted in thread: Apple Cyser + sparkling apple cyser on 11-02-2013 at 01:15 PM
    Arch tech, your friend is mistaken. I have cyser that has been in bottle for over a year. The
    flavor has changed a lot in that time, but it was all for the better. The flavors have mellowed
    and a far ...

    My hefe recipe is a single decoction mash. As yooper said, it's common in some varieties of
    ales. It adds a noticeable flavor difference.

    Seems like a good idea, so long as you don't snag the bag. Another thing to try is stirring
    while heating. I use paint strainers, and while stirring vigorously during heating, I have
    never had a melte...

  • Posted in thread: first BIAB low OG, two probable problems and a question on 09-07-2013 at 01:23 AM
    When I started BIAB I was seeing a low OG. I found out, through an unrelated use of my
    thermometer, that it was reading 5 degrees higher than actual. Once I started compensating for
    that my efficiency...

    Stains happen, no big deal at all. Everything gets boiled anyway so don't worry.

  • Posted in thread: extreme bottle bombs on 09-07-2013 at 01:16 AM
    I'm going to say infection as well. You can over carb by quite a bit without blowing bottles.
