    I have a gallon of juice and a gallon of cider going for almost 2 weeks and they both are still
    going to town (bubbling away). I added a cup of corn sugar to each and split a package of
    Noddigham Ale ...

    Thanks for the replies guys.. I did the flashlight thing last night and it looked like there
    was about an inch of foamy stuff on the sides of the bucket above the beer line, so assume it
    is doing it's...

  • Posted in thread: What kit should I buy to start brewing? on 01-22-2013 at 08:21 PM
    This is what I would take a look at, comes with a brewing ingredient kit and they will let
    you choose from any ingredient kit they sell, it will be + or - the difference in price if its
    not one of t...

    As stated, try and locate a local Brew Supply store near you.I am a newbie like you and have
    only brewed 2 batches so far. If you don't have a BSS near you you can use the internet. The 1
    I got for X-...

    Don't worry if your brew takes up to 3 days to show signs fermenting.Especially if you used
    liquid yeast and didn't make a big starter and oxygenate.It is also worth noting that no
    bubbles in the air ...

    This could be my fault. I bought a new snowblower last year, finally caving in after the
    previous 2 winters. Hasn't snowed enough to use it since.Yeah, I have a few friends that are
    big into snowmobil...

    Well, since the temps plummeted here in Chi-Town for the 1st time here in like 2 years, I have
    no worries on fermenting my current batch too high anymore. Temp on the bucket went from 70 to
    66 overnig...

    I think my sister in Raleigh, NC has seen more snow this season than I have in the west
    suburbs of Chicago (so far).Brewed yesterday here in the SW burbs when it was near 50
    outside...:ban:Fired up t...

    Cool. I will probably 2nd ferment the American pale ale (just to see) and single ferment the
    Light Ale. Let them sit in the bottles for about 3 weeks before refrigerating.So I assume 69-70
    is good for...

    Thanks for the quick and to the point responses. :mug:For both my brews now fermenting, it was
    Lallemand Danstar Ale Yeast.Hopefully the 69-70 it has been fermenting at the last 5-6 days
    isn't too hig...
