  • 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.

    Cover your carboy and shake vigorously. Do you have any more yeast packets? What's your Og and
    what FG are you shooting for?Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    If you do not do so already hydrate your dry yeast prior to pitching to get the yeast more
    active. Also make sure you are aerating vigorously. You can do this by shaking your carboy for
    about 40 secon...

  • Posted in thread: I made a new brew and need some advice on 05-25-2014 at 12:45 AM
    The only way to know is with a sg reading. You can take a sg reading for your fg when brewing
    is done and back track to a rough og depending on your yeast. It will be innacyrate though.

    Every time I brew I get a ring of trub around the protrusion on top of my kettle. Do I just
