    You could honestly just leave it in primary for 2-3 weeks and then bottle it from there.
    Racking to a secondary carboy isn't necessary. Don't worry about the cloudiness or some off
    flavors, that's nor...

    I would crash it now. I typically only let my starters run for 18-24 hours (until about high
    krausen), although sometimes longer if I haven't noticed any activity. You don't really want
    your starter f...

    I'd say go for it, I love using Maris Otter. Expect a little more of a biscuity/bready
    character in your beer.

  • Posted in thread: How long is your Brew Day??? on 08-20-2013 at 10:44 PM
    I typically have my brew day down to about 5-5.5 hours from start to finish. All grain 2.5gal
    batches on the stove.

    Well according to MrMalty, it's about 1% viable. I would recommend starting with a fresh pack
    in this case.

    Hi BanginBanjoSo if I wanted to make the standard 5 gal brewing I would need to get a 8 gal or
    greater? And I will take a look at that thread regarding aluminum kettles.thanks for your
    input. you gave...

    I believe you have everything you need there for some extract brewing, minus the kettle. As far
    as the kettle is concerned, the size will depend on the batch size your brewing. If your
    brewing anythin...

    Keep in mind that it takes 2-3 weeks for the beer to reach equilibrium in the bottle, as far as
    co2 absorption is concerned. You may have noticed that despite the huge head, your beer might
    have felt ...

  • Posted in thread: Super cloudy and super active on 08-12-2013 at 10:13 PM
    Seems normal to me. In my experience the beer always looks cloudy during fermentation, as it
    should since you have billions of yeasties running around in there. Yeast are also more active
    at higher te...

    It's all coming from the same place. The water temperature will depend on the ambient
    temperature outside, more specifically the temperature about 3ft below the ground where the
    pipe was laid.
