    taking a hydrometer reading would probably help answer this question, but the short answer is
    no, it should be fine. The first few days are usually the most vigorous fermentation so slowing

    I had a batch that didn't get down past 1.02. tasted sweet and gross in the bucket, still
    crappy after a month. Two months later it was fantastic. I think it got stuck and came down a
    little in the bo...

  • Posted in thread: Best response to telling someone you homebrew on 08-02-2009 at 06:01 AM
    I told my grandfather that I started brewing a while ago, but only today got a brew to him.
    Before I even poured it he asked if it was anything like Miller Highlife. I said, no, it's not,
    because it's...

    That is why i said that it is highly unlikely. If it were fermented and then infected I would
    agree with the commonly stated idea (i'm hesitant to use the word fact here just because
    someone likely co...

    I don't want to say it's impossible, but it's extremely unlikely that there is anything in
    there that can hurt you in any way more than maybe an upset stomach. Without a picture or
    experience with inf...

    I have super hard water and it turns cloudy in a matter of hours (overnight at least). The
    first time i used it though i didn't know that it may or may not be a problem and went ahead
    and used cloudy ...

    I think contacting your local agricultural extension office and nearest agricultural university
    and/or looking on their websites would be a good start. Something like this (Assuming that is
    Royal Oak,...

  • Posted in thread: Looking at getting a new fermenter on 07-11-2009 at 06:20 AM
    I would think for another primary a second bucket would be just fine and then getting a 5
    gallon carboy/better bottle for secondary and aging would be ideal. People always talk about
    keeping things to...

  • Posted in thread: describe "cloying" please on 07-10-2009 at 09:15 PM
    Bottle it and wait another month. My last porter was way too sweet and sugary feeling up until
    about 5 or 6 weeks in bottle. Before carbing it was gross and after a couple of weeks in bottle
    it was on...
