  • I got into brewing when I got a Brooklyn home brew kit. I did a few extract and brew in a bag beers before I ran into a 10 gallon cooler! I started using the cooler, a 10 gallon aluminum turkey fryer. I most recently bought a fridge and converted it into a fermenting chamber/ kegerator. Looking forward to expanding my equipment.

    With the OG calculated (as per flars) you can figure out what your FG should be. This yeasts
    attenuation is 73-77% simply multiply the last two number of your OG (1.070 would be 70) by the
    percents ab...

    Thank you for the info. It sounds like keeping the lid on is the better bet. I ferment low
    typically 64ish but condition a few days at 70 to clean it up. Tend to get that caked on yeast
    on the bucket ...

    I open it to take tasting samples before im ready to keg. I dont have a spigot ( should get
    one) I want to make sure I dont keg with too much aceteldhyde, sulfur etc ...

    I am fortunate to get vigorous fermentation. I do 5 gallon batches in a 6.5 gallon bucket and
    the krausen tends to go into my blow off tube. After the Kraussen settles it leaves a caked on
    layer of ye...

    The best place to start is by googling and reading "How to brew" its free online. It will give
    you everything from basic to mid level brewing advice and information. Its the best starting
    point. Then ...

    Quick update the aroma. Which seems like aceteldhyde went from about a 7 to a 2 over the last
    few days. I used to open the fermenter and get an overwhelming aroma. Now its a faint smell and
    when in th...

    Low gravity one minute high gravity 90s just a rule of thumb. In really high gravity there is
    talk of a second o2 injection(Chris Whites yeast book)

    I'd be cautious about using "yeast nutrient". A guy sent me beers over and over trying to nail
    down an off-flavor, and we went through EVERYTHING. Finally, in one PM he mentioned "yeast
    nutrient", whi...

    Malt has plenty of magnesium- no need to supplement that.Those numbers look good. What was the
    mash pH? Maybe it's that simple?Dang it! Hoping we found the issue with the magnesium :mad:PH
    5.3-5.4, I ...

    This is pretty much what I do too, but I don't cold crash before racking generally if the beer
    is fairly clear.I don't supplement with zinc, and many other brewers don't. While yeast can
    benefit from ...
