  • Posted in thread: Is 1.020 to high on 03-01-2011 at 06:28 AM
    When all else fails do what I have done for many years: Let it sit another couple weeks, the
    math becomes anecdotal.i.e. let it do it's thing and then add another couple weeks and you
    won't have to wo...

    If you have it timed to 16 seconds.... you need to chill, you're getting too anal.Forget
    whatever the recipes and "directions" said.When it seems to get clear and slow after a week or
    so let it go ano...

    Like Dok said, a drop or two of Fermcap will help a lot.

  • Posted in thread: Hop Pellet to Whole Hop Conversion? on 02-26-2011 at 12:31 AM
    Generally yes, as long as the alpha is close to the same.By "fresh" I assume you mean
    home-grown or locally grown ? As opposed to "whole hops".Your post title says "whole hops" and
    then in your text y...

  • Posted in thread: white trashbags ruin beer? on 02-25-2011 at 11:01 PM
    I think you answered your own question. If you used thin white plastic and the fermenters were
    in sunlight, they may have gotten skunked.I've used Fermcap for quite a while and I'm pretty
    sure it is n...

  • Posted in thread: bubbles in secondary? on 02-25-2011 at 08:03 PM
    So you are calling it a "secondary". Common wisdom is that it's a secondary fermenter. As it is
    a fermenter, and you are getting some CO2 bubbling, why are you concerned ? It's fermenting,

  • Posted in thread: Is a little speck of dust really going to infect my beer on 02-25-2011 at 07:51 PM
    Agreed.HOWEVER:It's not the airborne goop on dust that will cause most home brewers problems.
    IMO, it's the hoses that aren't totally cleaned out, or the ball valve you forgot to rinse, or
    that scratc...

  • Posted in thread: Is a little speck of dust really going to infect my beer on 02-25-2011 at 07:24 PM
    99.9% of the time a speck of dust will be insignificant. You are (hopefully) inoculating
    billions upon billions of active yeast cells, into their prime environment, and they will take
    charge and overw...

  • Posted in thread: Using some sorghum molasses on 02-18-2011 at 06:57 PM
    Well, there is always some confusion on this, and about all I can say is forget the word
    "molasses" when dealing with sorghum syrup.Sorghum syrup is made by crushing sorghum cane stems
    and boiling dow...

  • Posted in thread: Correcting an under pitch on 02-15-2011 at 11:08 PM
    I'm certainly no expert, but additional yeast should not hurt anything, yet it may not help
    anything either. But you're not really sure there is "anything" that needs fixing at this
    point, right?You k...
