    Proper nutrition is most important during the growth phase of fermentation where the yeast are
    getting used to their new environment (your wort) and propagating and gearing up their
    biological functio...

    I would worry more about filtering your water. I top off with unboiled all the time and no
    infections. I make sure to filter all my water though, but that's because I have well water. It
    doesn't taste...

    Side question: What if you are using a regulator that is marked for CO2 but measures output by
    cfh (cubic feet per hour). Does this work the same way as a psi regulator and there is a just a

    CFH = Cubic Feet per Hour. I have the same one. 1 cfh = 0.929 L/hr.

    There is also degrees Brix which is used to describe the amount sucrose by weight in an aqueous
    solution. 1dB = 1g sucrose in 100g aqueous solution.

    Oxidation won't be an issue for him in this scenario because he said they would be drinking it
    within a couple hours. I think the biggest problem would be transferring the beer into the keg
    without ha...

    How long does a bottle bomb usually take to explode after being bottled?Sounds like 69Bronc's
    bottles exploded right away, while mine exploded around 7 months later. So it all depends on
    how overcarbe...

    4-5 oz of priming sugar. I most likely just poured it on top of the batch and was afraid of
    oxygenation so I didn't stir thoroughly. The problem I have is I'm not sure how much beer I
    have in my glass...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle explosion question on 05-29-2012 at 02:22 AM
    I know exploding bottle syndrome is caused by overcarbonation and bottling your batch before
    fermentation is complete. I just had an explosion tonight however from a batch that doesn't fit
    those crite...

    Sounds like everything is good! Yes bottle after two weeks, then you can drink those bottles
    after two more weeks.

"I'm a glass half-empty kinda guy. When it's half full, that means you're filling it, like a bartender. When it's half-empty, that means you're drinking it. I'd much rather be drinking the beer than pouring it."
