    No, they should be either be dissolved or be filtered out by a bazooka screen. I like to put my
    pumpkin in the mash though.

    Looks like crap. Send to me to dispose of properly. ;-). Lol. Welcome to home brewing!

  • Posted in thread: 2 possible mistakes...? on 09-28-2014 at 03:57 AM
    Was there extract in this batch or was it an all grain batch and that was supposed to be your
    mash? If the latter then you probably do have pretty much water in the fermenter, I'd chuck it
    and start o...

    Why are you home brewing if you prefer BMC's (bud, miller, coors)? You can buy those cheaper

    I am making a pumpkin porter this weekend and have heard of people using the pumpkin in the
    mash and others say add it to boil at 15 min left in boil. Not sure which way to go. Any advice
    would be app...

    gallon pot is su...

    Why are you going with such odd ball weights for your hops, grain bill and final volume?

  • Posted in thread: Nightmare Bottling Session! on 09-20-2014 at 01:03 PM
    Just out of curiosity, I had to leave the lid off the bucket while bottling since I ended up
    using a racking cane. What are the chances I oxidized the beer?I always leave the lid off of my
    bottling b...

  • Posted in thread: Spiced Pumpkin Porter on 09-18-2014 at 12:22 AM
    I am doing a spiced pumpkin porter this weekend. My question is regarding the spices and more
    specifically, the amounts. I am using cinnamon, ginger (fresh), all spice, cloves and nutmeg. I
    am looking...
