    Thanks for the advice guys. Indeed, the beer is pretty "dirty" looking. So I'll wait it out a
    bit before bottling. Here's one question though. I made a Belgian beer last and let it sit for
    two weeks b...

    Yes, The last two brews I made took several days for the yeast to start working. I found that
    rocking the carboy back and forth if it doesn't kick in usually gets things working. And as far
    as the fas...

    I'm not going to Lie, I totally forgot to take an initial gravity reading. Doh! I'm trying to
    remember the exact amount of Dextrose. I got it out of that "clone Brew" book. One thing I
    wonder about is...

    Usually, it takes my Beer around a week or so to ferment. This time I decided to make a
    maiboch. It got off to an almost immediate start and began fermenting immediately. This recipe
    called for severa...

    No because when I did open them, they did hiss just a tad. Anyhow, either they will turn out
    great or they'll explode and leave me a mess to hose out. It was a bit concerning that as soon
    as I put in ...

    It was in the bottles for around 3 months. They were inside the house, which is regularly 70
    degrees. Prior to the bottles, it was in the primary fermenter for almost 2 weeks ( I have no
    secondary fer...

    So... I was very excited about how my Belgian Strong Ale turned out after letting it sit for a
    number of months. But when I opened one, it was completely flat. Obviously the yeast must have
    been dead ...

  • Posted in thread: Question about bottle aging and how it affects flavor. on 09-17-2008 at 05:06 PM
    I just bottled my Belgian beer yesterday. It is a clone of Gulden Daak, a very strong ale of
    around 11% ABV. Before I bottled it, I took a few sips. Not bad, but it had a sort of bitter
    taste. So my q...

  • Posted in thread: How much corn sugar to add? Belgian Beer on 09-16-2008 at 09:37 PM
    My Gulden Draak clone is now ready for bottling. One of the things I really like about Gulden
    Draak is that it is very carbonated, almost like champagne.So I'd like to replicate that
    effect. The typic...

  • Posted in thread: Fermenting foam for different beers. on 09-05-2008 at 06:55 PM
    I've brewed 2-3 different kinds of beer this year so far and all of them did the same thing,
    which was have a thick head of foam at the top of the carboy then disappear when the
    fermentation stopped. ...
