Thanks for pointing me to that thread - seems like a good discussion. And I'm reading Water
right now, but I'll be sure to pick up Vintage Beer as soon as I'm done. My only thought is
that my situatio...

Hey all, here's the story. I'm starting a 3 year grad program in the fall. I'm a joint-degree
candidate, so my MBA cohort will graduate in 2016 and my public health cohort will graduate in
2017. I wan...
Posted in thread: Priming with juice on 06-11-2014 at 11:56 AM
I've done it before using blackberry juice (froze the berries, mashed them, then forced the
liquid through cheesecloth). I took specific gravity readings, then calculated how much sugar
should be in i...

I spent like a week reading through a book and a bunch of blogs before I brewed my first beer

Posted in thread: Losing volume during racking/bottling on 06-10-2014 at 06:46 PM
So you likely lost volume in a number of places. If you wanted to start with 5.25G and only got
5G and still hit your OG, that's a sign that your efficiency wasn't as good as you planned. Not

So, do we think if I transfer some of the yeast cake when I transfer the 1 gallon into a
separate container, it will continue to develop nicely? I'm sure it won't be quite the same as
if I just let th...

No barrel for me. 6G better bottle for primary; the lambic aging for an additional year would

at all, but...
