  • Posted in thread: Never realized how important fermentation temps are... on 04-23-2008 at 03:17 PM
    So I brewed the AHS sweet stout about 4 weeks ago and used 12 grams of Munton's dry yeast
    (OG-1.60). The batch fermented at a pretty constant temp of 65 degrees (stick on thermometer
    said 66)....and a...

    I brewed this kit a couple weeks ago...and after 5 days the FG was 1.28...and four days latter
    it is still 1.28 (and I only used 2/3 of the bag of lactose). I used Munton's Dry-yeast (which
    after this...

    I have a glass stovetop and always use pots that are bigger then the heating area....for
    brewing and just regular cooking. Never had a problem.

    Do you think this kit would work with the dry yeast, or because of the high gravity(and I might
    add the 1% alcohol boost), is liquid yeast the way to go?

    I've had my eye on this kit for a while and am going to pick it up in the next week or two (but
    use the dry yeast). Is it me or does a pound of lactose seem like a lot? Would there be any
    problem with...

  • Posted in thread: Any tips to getting all the beer out of the carboy? on 02-23-2008 at 06:08 PM
    Did the bottling today of my first brew. Used the siphon to transfer from the glass carboy to
    the bottling bucket but there was a ton of sediment in the bottom of the carboy....I tried to
    tilt the car...

  • Posted in thread: My 2nd brew...good stout ingredient kit? on 02-22-2008 at 02:25 AM
    Just started looking at the Austin Hombrew kits. What do you think about this sweet stout? I
    might just throw in this cheap promotional amber ale they have ($20!)- stick with the dry
    yeast and of ma...

  • Posted in thread: Final Gravity a little high? on 02-20-2008 at 02:39 AM
    For the first brew I did a True Brew Canadian Ale kit (Muntons dry yeast)....pitched the yeast
    at 75 degrees...been fermenting between 64-66 degrees. Bubbled like crazy for 48 hours then
    basically sto...

    Got started with a True Brew Canadian Ale kit and for the 2nd brew I want to do a stout and
    just want the ease of it in kit form. My preference on taste: I like Guiness but I want
    something that is sl...

    good to hear that is normal, i used the same dry yeast for my first batch this weekend in a
    True Brew Canadian Ale ingredient kit-same thing happened. Pretty active bubbles the first 48
    hours or so an...
