    Great beer. I brewed this over a year ago, and my GF's father sent me a card (after I had sent
    him home with samples a few months prior) remarking on it's quality. I did increase the hop
    quantities (b...

    I've made a number of pumpkin beers before, but always with the fresh stuff.Since I missed the
    pumpkin season, I flagged down this beer but only after I started brewing last night (past the
    point of r...

    Hi Bill,I may not understand the process fully, but having read your question as it reads, I
    suspect the issue lies in carbonating it in a keg and then moving it to a bottle. There will be
    a natural l...

    The short answer is no. I was following a recipe of "olde".I put the beach plums in a large pot

    I haven't ever heard of a beer being infected with a consequent darkening in shade... I say let
    it ride. Beer can go through all sorts of changes; worrying about an organic process going it's
    own way ...

    Although I have heard of some people "baking" their bottles in addition. Your best bet is to
    use a no-rinse sani solution.

    If your FG was low, then you won't have have many residual sugars to keep it sweeter as they
    all fermented out. It may be sour due to a an infection, however I imagine that to be a bit
    unlikely. Next ...

    Your research seems accurate. Any time a beer tastes like that, it is normally due to a
    bacterial infection.

    It's still bubbling, and consequently driving me mad; I'm used to the 1 week max turn around of
    ale. I guess it's all part of the new adventure with mead.I'd say it's going 1 bubble a minute,
    as it ha...

    Thanks for the replies ;)I assumed I was just seeing "things" but figured I'd toss it up for
    review/mockery of the more seasoned brewers.Good to know I have some royalty in the house.
