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 ...

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
