    ABOUT ME

  • New Jersey
  • I've started my quest to try as many beer as i possible can before I die in 2010. I started a list in a word document and started with 50 beers that I was able to remember from my past. Since then I've added 400 beers to that list and continue to keep it moving. rnrnRecently, I decided to give into my urge and brew my own beer. I've always talked about it, but it finally came into fruition at 2012's end. I'm looking forward to perfecting my brewing style and creating brew with my own personal treatment to it.rnrnI've taken in a lot of information since I started brewing, but I've barely scratched the surface of what I should know.

    204277The beer turned out delicious. Not as much peach flavor as I hoped but it is not at all
    sweet in a negative way. The Citra hops added a nice bitterness to it. Next time I'll add peach
    extract to...

    My partial mash brew went great 10 days ago. 1.049 and now in the primary at 1.013. As the
    recipe website brewtoads.com aided me.I want to add the peaches as strawberries and need
    direction on what I ...

    There is no need to secondary unless you are going to rack your beer onto something like fruit
    or other additives. If you aren't going to do anything like that, then just let it sit until
    the gravity ...

    174010Day 5 of fermentation and its bubbling every so often. The circular motion really helped
    with the aspect, but I have yet to see a krausen. Is it ok to switch to the secondary without
    having one ...

    I see you're brewing in a bucket. Those are notorious for having bad seals. You're probably
    fermenting just fine, but the CO2 is leaking around the edge of the bucket, and not going out
    the airlock.I ...

    Also most people believe on here that you should not use a refractometer to check FG, use a
    hydrometer, as the alcohol can distort the readings.Totally agree with you. I had/still have my
    hydrometer b...

    Maybe I missed it. What yeast was used? I just did a Bry97 and that stuff takes forever to get
    going. Makes me nervous, bur it tasted great coming out of the primary. Never saw really
    vigorous airlock...

  • Posted in thread: 10 hours and no bubbling? on 01-20-2014 at 06:06 PM
    No, you don't want to open it. When necessary, I just gently move the fermenter in a circular
    motion.Do you do anything to aerate the wort before pitching? I've found that's important to
    getting off t...
