  • Posted in thread: how much strawberry to add? on 04-27-2015 at 08:48 PM
    so to the guys making the blondes, is the 3lbs to 5 gallons still a fairly strong strawberry
    flavor? i'm fine with a little tartness as the person i'm making this beer for usually squeezes
    a lemon ont...

  • Posted in thread: A few questions about 10 gallon batches on 04-27-2015 at 08:30 PM
    The problem I see with this is your 10g pots. If you are doing 1 mash you will need a way to
    evenly mix your wort between the two pots so they are the same OG in each pot. I am assuming
    you will have ...

    That looks normal to me. The bubbles are clear looking and you stating that the airlock was
    still 'slowly bubbling' tells me the beer is just off gassing a bit.If it's already been three
    weeks, do a g...

    There are some simple mash calculators here. Looks like 24 lbs at 1.25 qt per lb should take up
    about 9.42 gallons so will be tight but doable I think. I'd probably add the grain first, or at
    least mi...

    My cousin and me are thinking about going in and getting enough ingredients for a 10 gallon
    batch of Dead Ringer, then splitting it. We'll save about $17 doing it this way vs buying two
    DR kits, even ...

    I used 3lb fresh strawberries quartered then frozen for a Strawberry version of centennial
    blonde.That sounds delicious!I just racked a strawberry blonde on 5lbs of strawberries that I
    quartered. Gonn...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling with short neck bottles on 04-26-2015 at 10:24 PM
    I've used shorties before with no problems. My favorite one is the bottle style that Redhook
    uses. It's the perfect size imo if you have to load a small cooler where bottle height is an
    issue.

  • Posted in thread: 2 yeast for most beers on 04-26-2015 at 10:21 PM
    Count me in for US-04 and US-05. If not 04, then maybe Nottingham. I used to not like that
    yeast, but have found the last few batches with it were more my fermentation temps being too
    high, than the y...

  • Posted in thread: Simple Yeast Storage Procedure on 04-26-2015 at 08:12 PM
    What would be wrong with just bottling up the slurry I regular beer bottles and capping? Does a
    little pressure hurt all that much?For me, I don't have pint sized bottles and the bigger mouth
    of the m...

    It's all good yeast. What you do with it is up to you. I save enough in the fridge for the next
    few months of brewing, or whatever I have space for. I'll freeze smaller volumes if it's an
    expensive or...
