    Don't worry about sunlight. Radicalization only occurs in isomerized oils (i.e. post-brewing).
    Before you use the hops, sunlight won't hurt them a bit. Many old-world methods of drying used

    Did you guys really just drop a hydrometer inside a carboy?:facepalm:Everybody knows you have

    Green bits = infection.My condolences.But as stated, you might still be able to salvage it by

    Converted to the english units many of us are familiar with, that's 12 pounds of extract in 6
    gallons (or 10lb per 5 gal batch equivalent).Rule of thumb is 37 points per lb of LME per
    gallon and 45 po...

    Most people improve the quality of their beer as they learn.Most people also increase batch
    size, complexity (mass of equipment) and/or the volume of the boil as they learn as well.I'd
    say that most p...

    Storing the beer a little too cold won't hurt a thing. Just drink how you normally would.When
    it hits the room temperature glass, it's going to rise a degree or two and depending upon
