  • So far ive only tried kits, my very first kit was an irish stout that tasted like soap(i assume i didnt rinse my bottles thoroughly) since then ive tried a few batches of coopers, using an open vat fermentation and have never gotten beer i was happy with, i read as much beerifinalia as i can and am eager to learn.
  • I plan to start using the more traditional way of brewing with my own grains/hops asap, but im not here yet. it is my dream to one day own a fully organic micro brewery.
  • plastic vat with an enclosed lid used for wine. lets the CO2 out whenever it needs to.

    Ale yeast's can go for 10 or more generations and still be good. But i wouldnt go more than
    that for a lagering yeast, they tend to get lazy.

    Sounds like your not getting a good yield from your grain. Next time try stopping your runoff
    before your grain hits air, and stir the mash. Let it sit a few minutes before starting your
    runoff again....

    Use a thief to snag a sample out, run the outside of the thief under cold water to get it down
    closer to 20 degrees C. Plop your hydro in and dump that sample back the pot! All gonna get
    boiled anyhow
