    Quick update: I just got everything back in my fermenter. When I opened my fermenter there was
    a small amount of krauzen (which wasn't there at the 40 hour mark since pitch). I opened it at
    about 48 h...

    Congrats on your first batch, Cander! What do you want to brew for your second?I have Edworts
    Apfelwine in a carboy for about a month now. But I would not really call that a brew...Last
    Sunday was bre...

    Another question (actually 2 questions).... :)I'm going to draw off a gallon of wort and add
    the DME tonight. I am about 40 hours in since I pitched my yeast (WLP830), however, and have
    absolutely no ...

    Definitely use the full amount. I'd draw off a gallon or so of the wort and re-heat (~160F) it
    enough to dissolve the DME, cool, and pour back in.Picked up the DME today and plan on doing
    this. Wanted...

    WOOT! My first brewing attempt has been a success! I jumped right in with all grain brewing and
    made a nut brown ale. I made all sorts of mistakes, but the wisdom on here told me to just let
    it sit an...

    It was a typo, thanks for pointing it out.I like the idea of blending another batch with it,
    but it will be another 4-6 weeks before I have time to brew again, so I think I'll just buy the
    DME. I shou...

    I brewed a Sam Adams Winter Lager Clone yesterday. When I took my OG reading I realized I made
    a mistake somewhere as my OG was 1.022 and my target OG was 1.069.After going through my recipe
    again I r...

    I think the risks involved with transferring to a secondary tend to be overblown. Not say that
    there aren't any risks, but I've transferred many beers to a secondary and have never had a
    problem. As l...

    Ferment until FG is reached (How long you let it sit in primary depends on what it is....2-4
    weeks is the range. You could reach your final gravity in 3 days but if you bottle after 3 days
    you will no...

    Thanks for all the replies! Since this is my first brew, I want to minimize as much risk as
    possible, so I am going to stick with my primary for the entire fermentation. I don't want to
    risk oxidation...
