    If you have no way of checking the gravity, then I would let it sit for another week just to be
    on the safe side. Airlock activity does not determine if fermentation is complete. Better to
    keep it in ...

    If I ferment my APA at 65F for a week, and believe the primary fermentation is done, can I pull
    it out of my fermentation refrigerator and let it sit at room temp (~77F) with out negatively
    affecting ...

  • Posted in thread: Sanitation Strategies on 06-04-2013 at 06:45 PM
    I keep a filled up 5 gal Home Depot bucket with distilled water and my star san at all times.
    I've read that using distilled water (as long as the bucket stays covered) lasts indefinitely.
    I usually s...

  • Posted in thread: 12oz vs 22 oz on 02-27-2013 at 03:50 AM
    I usually bottle with a case of 12oz bottles and a case of 22oz. I typically use the 12oz'ers
    as the ones to give to people to try. The 22oz'ers I enjoy exclusively for myself since I
    mostly enjoy my ...

    You should try steeping some honey malt if you want some honey flavor. Try steeping a pound of
    it if you want a strong hint of honey flavor.

  • Posted in thread: First Trappist Ale - Any Tips? on 12-12-2012 at 02:26 AM
    At this stage in the game, I really don't have a way to regulate the temperature other than my
    AC setting. Is there any easy way to do this that I'm not considering? My first thought is a
    water bath t...

    Yes, you are right in thinking that the potential Alcohol scale equates to the brew attenuating
    to 1.000. I can't be sure what your brew will attenuate to but if your starting gravity reading
    is 1.060...

    Yup that should be good. It was my misunderstanding. I see alot of recipes that call for honey
    to be added during the boil leading to believe that it will yield the honey flavor. But if the

    If you wanted a honey taste to your brew, may I suggest steeping some honey malt. Simply adding
    the honey to the wort will only give it a drier finish, but will not give it a honey taste
    since the hon...
