I have been looking to make a batch of this myself. Did either of you come up with a promising
Posted in thread: Ring of sediment forming in bottles on 03-29-2012 at 01:46 AM
I bottled my apricot pale ale about a week ago and it appears that a ring of sediment, almost
like a krausen ring, has formed in the neck of each bottle. At first I thought it was little
remnants of a...

I pitched my yeast 6 hours ago and so far no activity. The bottom is much darker than the top

I've yet to ever witness one of my fermentations precisely for this reason. I feel it keeps me

I have a 6.5 gallon glass True Brew carboy but forgot to mark where 5 gallons should be before
I poured the wort in. Does anybody with experience with this specific carboy know how many
