Posted in thread: Anything wrong with shaking the homebrew/wine after it starts to ferment? on 01-25-2012 at 06:34 AM
Typically you will want to be as careful as possible while transporting your beer. You do not
want to add any oxygen after fermentation has completed. While transporting my beer from my

It depends on the gravity of the beer. It is really difficult to over pitch yeast at a homebrew
level. However, pitching 2 yeasts is about the equivalent of making a starter. One of the

I wouldn't use the 3942 for a Belgian IPA because of the types of esters it gives off. I don't

It depends on what alcohol content you are shooting for. I would personally use Lalvin D-47 for

my APAs; it ...

Top's Liquors in Tempe is an outstanding place to buy beer. Not only does it have a larger
selection than the powerhouses (Bevmo/Total Wine), it also has a bar next door. It has some
very good beers o...

SRM stands for Standard Reference Method. It deals with the color of the beer. The higher the
SRM, the darker the beer. IPA's generally range from 6-15 SRM to give you a decent sort of
starting point ...
