I'm starting my first AG batch this weekend in a converted 10 gal MT (converted cooler). I plan
on using a loop of SS braid under a 12lb grain bill for an Amber Ale. I also plan to fly sparge
with a 5...

Fermentation started about 24 to 36 hours after pitching yeast. I'll have to double check my
notes. I will check with the hydrometer after work, but wanted to pose the question while on
lunch to start...

I've had an IPA in the primary for just over 3 weeks now and I'm still getting airlock

I don't have any software to calculate the target OG and the recipe I used did not provide it.
I may see if I can find a free calculator and input all the ingredients to see how close I
was.I've also ...

To be honest, I'm not sure if I missed the target OG or not. I'm basing this off of the typical
BJCP guidelines of what the OG should be on an Irish Red Ale (1.044 - 1.060). I came in

I secondaried, no fermentation, for 2 weeks then bottled. But mine is what I consider a half
batch, 3 gallon carboy.
