Hey all, I'm brewing my 3rd batch today and I've come across something in this month's BYO
magazine that confused me a little bit. In the article "On The Boil", on page 55 he mentions
that "Unless [Ir...

Hey all! I just racked my second brew ever to secondary tonight. Man did it taste good too! I
couldn't stop drinking the sample I took. Can't wait for it all to be done. Anyways, my whole

Is there any way to see if the beer is carbonating in the bottle with out cracking one open?

extra week (t...

Posted in thread: Sanitize Bottle Caps? on 07-21-2007 at 03:50 AM

bunch of the caps to rust. Dunno what the caps were made out of, but since I switched to
Iodaphor I haven'...

Hey all! I'm racking my first batch to bottles tonight and I never thought about it, but should
I sanitize my bottle caps as well? I always hear to sanitize anything the beer touches but I

Alrighty. I'll relax about it but I don't have any home brew to drink so a micro-brew will have
to do. Thanks for your help everyone!

I would have never thought about it being bubbles. They looked small, but solid. But I guess a
group of tiny bubbles could appear to be solid. Hopefully it all tastes fine in the end! Sorry
for the do...
