    Give it a go, you aren't going to hurt anything by doing so. I will say that I've had mine on
    tap for a few months and the wood is just starting to get tolerable. I wish I'd toned down the
    oak... by a...

    I have used a flashlight to monitor the end of the racking cane during racking, with no real
    issues. I typically ferment in my upstairs bathroom, which is dark 99.99% of the time, except
    when I take m...

    relax, don't worry, have a (store bought) brew. (since this is your first batch)What
    temperature is your beer fermenting at? What type of yeast is it? What is the target O.G. from
    the kit?Most likely ...

    A secondary fermenter isn't necessary, perse, but it can help reactivate dormant yeast if
    they've gotten sleepy. Also, 64 is pretty chilly for most ale yeasts, generally 66-70 is a good
    range, I'd try...

    I will say that with an immersion chiller (the standard kind) I get my wort to pitching temp in
    less than 5 minutes. I stir while doing so and it helps introduce air as well (instead of an
    airstone or...

    Get a better bottle, 6 gallon. You can safely ferment 5 gallon beers in them (plenty of head
    room), and they will not break if you accidentally drop them. Also, lots of rinsing with hot
    water and then...

    If you are having trouble finishing fermentation, you might try a transfer to secondary for a
    couple more weeks. It does double duty, one to get the brew off the yeast cake (although 2
    weeks isn't bad...
