  • I'm a newbie to brewing, but been a long time beer fan. I'm just getting started so I welcome all advice and suggestions! I'm a huge fan of more malty, sweeter beers like bocks or like Leffe.

  • Posted in thread: how long after carbonation? on 05-16-2011 at 02:20 AM
    I understand I am supposed to wait 7-14 days after adding sugar, carbonation and bottling
    before I can drink. But how do I know, in that 7-14 days, that the beers are ready? And, if
    they aren't ready,...

    it sounded really good, especially the chocolate part - I love the Franziskaner Dunkelweizen -
    but then the pepper part turned me off. But I'll definitely try it if I find any.

    I saw that Paulaner Salvador recently but got the Paulaner Doppelbock instead - which I adore!
    I'm not a huge stout girl, but that Rasputin's is pretty amazing!

    Thank you for all your encouragement! I noticed you were unanimous. And thanks, ajf, for
    pointing out I'll need more bottles. I hadn't thought of that. Guess I better find some more

    do you folks recommend starting my second batch without knowing how my first turned out?
    Obviously, the big pro argument is that I'll get more beers faster. The big con is that I might
    still not know ...

  • Posted in thread: how much water in the airlock? on 04-04-2011 at 12:14 AM
    I'm noticing that as fermentation is taking place, the air is being expelled out of the
    airlock. Should I refill the airlock with water? (I'd just pour some in) I'm afraid that soon
    the airlock will h...
