    Most of the kits that are sold w/names of lagers have ale yeast in them.

  • Posted in thread: Huge fermentation...then very very little on 02-20-2017 at 07:03 AM
    My first 2 batches actively bubbled for 2 weeks. I brewed an Imperial IPA (extract) last week.
    Massive fermentation almost IMMEDIATELY (I had to swap out my air lock for a blow off tube
    because the Kr...

    Only once before I bottled. With a one gallon batch I didn't want to waste a bottle or two with
    testing.How can you be sure it was done? Short fementation and only one reading could mean your
    yeast wa...

    I let most of mine sit for 4 weeks. I get pretty clear bier w/o cold crashing.

    This. And I also notice some of my more hoppy beers leave a haze in the bottle that won't rinse

    of the bottl...

    I went from 5 gallons of beer brewed with 3 vessels and packaged in 50+ bottles, to 2.5 gallons
    brewed in 1 vessel and packaged in one 2.5 gallon keg. The classic homebrew books and forum

    How many times did you check your FG? I don't care what yeast I use I let my biers ferment for

    I added a cheap valve to my cooler and a 90 degree elbow. The only other item (besides the bag)
    is a double piece of aluminum foil I lay over the mash before I put the lid on. Works great,
    mash temp s...

    it's also not biab with a 10 gallon cooler, it's just normal. (you are just using a bag instead
