  • Posted in thread: Bottle Care and Bottling on 01-25-2015 at 05:41 PM
    This has been discussed over and over and so I thought I'd put my two cents into a video. It's
    a little over 15 min long but it takes you and just emptied bottle to bottle condition. Volume
    is a bit l...

    And equally important is to CLEAN IT AS SOON AS YOU FINISH RACKING. Don't let anything dry in
    your tubing or you'll never get it clean.

    My guess is that since this is your "first batch" is that it is an extract kit. That means you
    probably added top off water to get to your desired fermenting volume. That said if you make
    and extract ...

    Malt extract is made the same ways as wort. The difference is that it goes to an evaporator
    instead of a fermentor, so the sugar composition is very similar to what an all grain brewer
    would produce. ...

    I don't know anything about it, but I Googled it w/a review and got this. Me I would just stick
    to buckets or carboys so temp can be controlled. As a first timer you should have started
    "cheap" in cas...

    Here is a picture of an Irish Red Ale I'm about to bottle. Notice how easy to read the
    hydrometer numbers.No cold crash, no gel, just time.Sat in the fermenter from Dec 24 til today.
    Most of the time ...

    I use this from a paint supply house. I've seen them on line in many different filter degrees.
    It does clog, but w/a big spoon I move the trub to the side. Fits right in a fermenting
    bucket.[URL="

    I'd say the "General Rule" is 3 weeks in the fermenter 0 in the secondary unless adding
    something like fruit....and 3 weeks in bottles. That said.....2 or 3 readings w/no change means
    the conversion f...

    Cold crashing is easy, no filter worries, no extra o2 to worry about. My beers come out clear
    enough to read the label on the glass thru the beer.
