    I'd go 1098 for your yeast, and I'd also add a small amount of dextrose to dry out. Hint hint.
    Ferment out at the cooler end of the spectrum and make sure you do not underpitch as you will
    want to min...

    My guess is you are totally ok. Your fermentation us still taking place I would believe, it
    just might not look like it. Pitching on a cake can often cause huge early Krausen and blow
    offs then slow. ...

    Congrats first of all! It is a fun journey. Did you take the OG reading after you added the
    water? I am not familiar with the recipe you used and am not sure what taste was expected. Time
    in the bottl...

    Man I love this all have great input and have verified what I have pretty much
    thought. After my second PM, I noticed that I had a TON more sediment. I am assuming that is
    the "trug" that...

    I brewed actively in the late 80's and 90's but got out of it. I was strictly an extract guy
    then....just getting back in and dusted off the old pots, grolsch bottles and carboys. Have
    been experiment...

    Jsut curious if you brewed, and if so, how it went?

    I hope you like it! I am brewing a double batch (20 gallons) here in the next few weeks as well
    to get it ready for the summer. This is still one of the top beers here, liked by almost all

    This can happen a lot of ways. What type of yeast did you use? The Kolsch strains, among some
    others, are famous for their lack of falling Krasuen, even after 2 plus weeks.Nothing to worry

    Looks Like an interesting recipe! If you haven't used Rye before, it is good to be in the 10%
    to 30% range, which you are dead center on. I am not sure what your goals are, but you will
    definately hav...
