  • Posted in thread: Do you clean the bottles? on 10-06-2015 at 08:26 AM
    For both empty bottles from brewstore and bottles of beer you drink - is it enough to only
    rinse the bottles well after pouring the beer (or if empty bottles from brewstore to get rid of
    dust) and not...

    Not to sound like too much of a wise ass, but I let them condition until they're ready. A lot
    of it depends on style rather than gravity. A 1.050 hefeweizen is perfect 2-2.5 weeks from
    brewday. A 1.05...

    Never had a dry hop infection, I just remove the air lock and pour them in using a funnel made

    Switch to smaller batches. I do 2 gallon batches in 2 gallon buckets from HD. That gives me 3
    sis packs per brew and sincE I drink most of my beer alone it's just fine.

    I dry hopped an IPA 3 days ago. I plan to cold crash for about a week. Will that week cause me
    to loose some of the dry hopping effects?

    but plan to cold crash for about 5 days.

    Switch to 2 gallon batches in buckets from HD. You will get 3 six packs if you can get 1.9
    gallons into the fermenter. I screen so there is room only for the wort. But yea you don't want
    to add water ...
