    Okay. I will begin rehydrating my yeast-lesson learned, but more importantly what is my next
    move?

    Still stalled at 1.037. Time to pitch more yeast? Why would it stall? I used two packages of
    yeast, thought it would certainly be enough

    It's a carpeted floor so it would pretty close to the same as the air temperature. It bubbled
    hard but did not have much of a foam cap. I'll check it in a few days to see if the gravity has
    changed. I...

    I brewed a big stout on 9/24 that had an OG of 1.098. I used two packages of Safale US-04. My
    LHBS guy told me that I did not need to rehydrate the yeast because it was fairly fresh. I
    expect it to fi...

    I usually use 1056 or US-05. We have a well so I'm leaning more towards the water issue. I have
    not tested the ph of the water or anything. I might try using bottled water to see if I get a
    different ...

    It feels like its over carbonated when it hits your tongue but the beers do not have excessive
    head. It might be a yeast problem...I have brewed IPA's, Porters, Stouts, RyePA's, Belgians and
    Raspberry...

    How do I make my brew smoother? Every batch seems to have some bite. I use Palmer's How to Brew
    carbonation table to ensure the accurate amount of priming sugar is added. Any secret tips to
    make my br...

    PS The OG was 1.103, my expected FG is 1.028 and when I racked it the gravity was 1.032. I
    figure two points in the secondary and two more points in the bottle should put me right where
    I want to be w...

    I brewed a beer a couple Saturdays ago that I fashioned to taste like the Yeti Imperial Stout
    from Great Divide. It is looking, smelling and tasting good so far. I racked it yesterday into
    secondary a...
