Posted in thread: A question of faulty bungs and airlocks. on 01-13-2013 at 03:50 PM
I have a 23 liter batch of ale in primary fermentation right now and I noticed a bit of a
problem. For 2 days it wouldn't bubble, then I realized I was using a hack job bung and my
airlock was way ove...

Well, I ended up more or less doing it as instructed. Rather than doing 20 liters in the
demijohn and 2 liters in the pot to make the wort I did 18/4 so the wort would be thinner and
less likely to ca...

So my first two brews were all grain one gallon kits, one turned out "interestingly" and the
other is still aging but I don't have high hopes for it. At the suggestion of my LHBS I picked

That sounds like a great idea. When I used wood chips in a Dubbel I'm fermenting I soaked them
in whiskey overnight and added them to the boil. I'm not sure if you'd need the whole week for
the chips ...

That is correct Jon. A hydrometer is going to be on my list of goodies to pick up. Hopefully my
home brew shop is open for boxing day.

There is a pretty good looking home brew shop within 20 km of my house and another on my route
home from work. I'm putting together a shopping list of things to pick up on my next stop.I
figured with ...

I wish I could be specific with the ingredients, but it was a premade mix. All I can say with
certainty is that it's made with Columbus and Cascade hops. I'm not sure what yeast or what
kinds of barle...

Thanks a lot for the advice guys. I also was able to try my beer last night. It wasn't swamp
water, though it looked like I dredged it out of a swamp with a bucket. It was drinkable and
didn't have an...
