    Well,I don't secondary myself unless oaking or something. But the beer should be at FG before
    racking out of primary. Letting the beer have that extra 3-7 days to clean up & settle out
    clear or slight...

    It's the fact that it was still murky that did it. The hop oils coat the yeast,etc & go to the
    bottom when they settle. That's why I always say that the beer should be given 3-7 days to
    clean up ferme...

    Ohh !! Another thing! I dont live where i brew i do it at my cousins house because he has more

    I'm still not too good with my readings. I have trouble with the whole gravity. I know its not
    the best way to know if fermentation is done but I go based on the bubbler activity and always
    do 2weeks ...

    pro so wouldn't ...

    I used zythos hops for the entire brew. The profile I read was thts it should have a good
    aroma. Tht its a blend made to be used in place of some of the more popular and hard to fin hop
    varieties. I w...

    I'm wondering what can cause your hop aroma to not show up in the final product?I used 4oz of
    hops to dry hop in my secondary and felt I would have an okay nose on my pale ale but once I
    sampled it I ...

    Oh, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with Zythos. It isn't reall "a" hop. It's a blend of
    many popular american hops. It was one of hopunions attempts to deal with the hop shortage for
    some of th...

    Thanx Everyone :)The only reason I used zythos was because of the shortage of some of the more
    popular hops at my LHBS. I asked the guy there what I could use to get a somewhat similar nose
    and he had...
