  • My neighbor got me into brewing. I then went back to college and drank a bunch of Grolsches, found www.northernbrewer.com somehow through a net search and got a basic kit and an American Ale and started bottling. I Made a few more batches and my roommate bought a kegerator. I then decided to start kegging. I messed up my first kegging batch. Couldn't get my tap working and didn't know about this site to get help.

    Got distracted for a couple of months...

    Moved away from the roommate and therefore the kegerator and poured out the kegged batch during moving. Found an old beat up kegerator that doesn't cool, just insulates. I'm trying to get my gear back in order so I can start brewing again.

    I thought so. I wasn't sure just how cold they could get.

    I brewed a stout a few months ago while it was still a nice temperature out and fermentation
    went great. My bottle filler broke and I waited a while to replace it. In the meantime the temp

  • Posted in thread: What apple juice do you use in your Apfelwein? on 02-03-2010 at 04:19 AM
    Went with Kroger brand apple juice this time. Hope it turns out as good as the rest. After this
    batch I'm going to go for something different (brown sugar or something along those lines).

    I don't know beer yeasts at all, but Montrachet should be able to handle the amount of sugar
    you had in there, and I stated that. I still don't understand how upping the sugar content
    would have solve...

    Curious - how would too little sugar make it stick? Upping the sugar (in my mind) only
    increases how much alcohol there will be in the end. In fact, I would say it was the opposite
    problem, too much s...

    I'll make sure I weigh the sugar this time I guess.

  • Posted in thread: Apfelwein keeps getting stuck on 01-28-2010 at 06:03 PM
    I make sure to use apple juice with no preservatives and use 2 lbs of corn sugar. I didn't
    weigh the sugar though because at the time I didn't have a scale yet (I do now). I just tossed
    in 2, 1 lb bag...

    I've done 2 batches of Apfelwein and they both got stuck at 1.009. I've heard they are supposed
    to get below 1. I've tried shaking it up and warming it up to about 69 for 8 weeks.
