  • B.A.R.F. of VA Beach, VA
  • I wanted to learn how to make beers that I enjoy drinking for a reasonable price. I quickly realized that brewing doesn't save money...like any addiction. I now pay ~ $75 per 5 gallon batch due to my addiction forcing me to buy new stuff all the time. Unfortunately, the quality of my beer is not directly linked to the amount of money I've spent on cool equipment.

    I'm a little surprised by the reaction. Particulary since some of the longer brewers I woudl
    have though would know what I'm about to share, although perhaps they do and discounted it.I

    Concur... They look fine, but...It's your beer. If you are worried at all, then just buy some
    new yeast. Put your mind at ease and drop the extra $10 for a couple vials. Otherwise you'll
    wonder the wh...

    way cool... Good luck. Do you have a brew club you belong to? Sometimes they are great

    of "airlock/blow-off activity is not a sign of fermentations" posts... As long as the yeast
    didn't smell '...

    I would bottle condition for a couple months but I am assuming the beer is done fermenting. The
    only way to know for sure is to take your hydrometer readings.

  • Posted in thread: Quick Fermenting Beer for summer? on 06-29-2011 at 06:03 PM
    Yes, I'd just use something like Hopville.com to determine the IBUs from the original recipe
    and then tinker with it to get it where you want it. Something else that's been addressed here
    is the conve...

    Yeah, you'll be fine pouring it in (after boiling to sanitize and chilling). If you can, pour
    into a funnel with a tube that gets it below the wort's surface (in the fermenter). Don't
    forget to saniti...
