Posted in thread: Easiest yeast Starter - Diluted Juice? on 07-28-2015 at 03:54 PM
Besides the issue that you are conditioning the yeast to ignore complex sugars, I'd worry about
carrying over cidery flavors (or bad wine-y flavors) unless you do a good job of decanting the
Posted in thread: tried a few commercial brews yesterday...not impressed on 07-26-2015 at 04:07 PM
I haven't had Slowride yet, but Sculpin, Pinner and Westbrook Gose are damn good beers. If
that's what she likes, it's what she likes. I wouldn't try to force home brew on her. If it
were me, I'd just...

If it's really still at 1.049 after 3 weeks, I would just dump it. That's a long time for wort
to sit (even cold). If you really want to keep it, aerate it and pitch two packs of re-hydrated

seconds? That sounds like a major pain in the ass.
Posted in thread: Just putting sugar in bottles to prime on 07-03-2015 at 09:03 PM
Depending on how many bottles you do, it can be a really tedious job but it works.It's
definitely on the tedious side, but I prepare a sugar solution in water that I boil for a few
minutes, cool, and ...

It won't kill you if you drink one or two early. I'd rather drink my beer too soon than too

I've thrown single oak cubes into bottles with pretty good success after a few weeks. I would
go that route rather than buying the flavor bomb things. You really don't need to package the
