    So my porter has now been in the primary for 12 days. The first 4 days I had rapid fermentation
    with little sediment. Now 12 days later, the beer is sitting on about 2 - 2 1/2 inches of
    peanut butter ...

    How long did you leave it in primary? The fact that it is bubbling nicely now make me
    suspicious that your yeast were slow to take off and you transferred it to secondary too soon
    and now your seconda...

    Odd.. Did you get it cooled pretty quickly? Any cold break material? Did you take a sample for
    a gravity reading while transferring to your fermentor? and if so, did you see any suspended
    materials in...

    Did you have a hot break when it came to boil? Was it a rolling boil? I've had more and less
    grub but never no trub (and that recipe sounds like one that could leave extra rather than
    less).I never go...

    Hey Everyone, I have a bit of a :confused: on my hands. I brewed a peanut butter cup porter
    this weekend. Typical porter recipe only I added 4 oz of cocoa powder, (unsweetend), and 3 jars
    of PB2 to th...

    Hey everyone! Thanks for clicking on my post. After a wild year with our first born, I am

    Popped one open last night, after 12 days in the bottle. Good head, lasted 3 minutes, smooth,
    light taste, vanilla and scotch left a sweet oak flavor on my palate. I'm hoping with time that
    it builds ...

    Just had my first stop, and I ended up adding 1lb of corn sugar, (I'm a rookie so forgive any
    mistake). Question for everyone. How do you save a yeast cake? Wouldn't this get contaminated
    when left ex...
