    Ok doke,Just wasn't sure as since its been open to the air if there would be spoilage issues. I
    will say that I smelled it today and it honestly smelled like a nice Rose wine.

    Well more that I made this stuff over a year ago, got busy and in the meantime the vodka in the
    water lock evaporated. So it has sat there with no actual water lock for some time. My question
    is: Is t...

    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 04:06 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...
