    Longer than necessary fermentations. Yeast health, proper stir plate starters, pitching the
    right amount, I am typically grain to glass in 8-10 days unless I'm aging something or
    secondary fermenting ...

    If you can tell us the amounts of each ingredient used and summarize your brewing procedure, we
    should be able to help answer your question.

    I've been using the Son of Fermentation Chiller for years now. It's a great CONTROLLABLE means
    of managing fermentation temperature, and doesn't cost much.

    Please sir, may I have another?

    the 42.7 was the pre-boil SG - correct?That's right. When you do those calculations, use 54
    instead of 1.054, and so 1.044 becomes 44. The 42.7 is very close to 44, so it looks like
    you're right about...

    Divide the final wort volume by the starting volume: 4.75/6 = 0.79. Now multiply the ending
    gravity by this number: 0.79 X 54 = 42.7.Looks like pretty normal figures for a 60 min. boil.

    Hey Brian,I follow pretty much the same procedure as BrewerinBR. Once my ales reach FG, I leave
    them in the primary for at least another 10 days. From there, I go straight to the keg. If
    you're bottle...

    I also believe that the world is my urinal....with reservations. A buddy of mine had four

    Hi drinkinfool,The beer you left in the bottles may actually be OK. If your gravity was 1.040
    to start, and you had an active fermentation, I seriously doubt that it only dropped 10 points.
    Are you su...
