    Posting your full recipe may be beneficial information for us to help you out. Sometimes the
    recipe can dictate a high FG if it was heavy handed in unfermentables.Another strategy you
    could employ is ...

    I don't open the lid, I take the sample from the tapThe act of draining some off from the tap
    will create a vacuum in the bucket. That vacuum will pull air into the bucket through the
    airlock.

    I'd also recommend to keep an eye on your lid. If you are seeing yeast in your airlock, you
    might need a blowoff tube. If you see the lid start to pucker up, get a blowoff tube on sooner
    than later.

  • Posted in thread: Wort Chiller and temp probe on 01-17-2017 at 02:59 AM
    Well... based on the size of your pot and the size of your chiller, it will either fit or not.
    But iIf there isn't room, I would recommend getting a false bottom that would sir above the

  • Posted in thread: Can I try a bottled beer after four days? on 01-17-2017 at 02:52 AM
    Because this is your first batch, I'd tell you to hold off until it has been in the bottle for
    three weeks. For subsequent batches, I'd say it is a great experience to drink a bottle or so a
    week whil...

    I've read that Denny's Favorite 50 yeast can take awhile to flocculate. You might be tasting
    the yeast. It is suspicious that you don't perceive the off flavor in the portion fermented
    with the kolsch...

    Limbrizik, for the sake of discussion, could you share your grain bill for this beer? A lot of
    folks would say that DMS is not something you need to worry about with today's highly modified
    malts unle...

  • Posted in thread: Simcoe vs Centennial hops on 01-08-2017 at 02:48 PM
    Centennial can totally stand on its own if needed. Simcoe and Centennial do make an awesome
    pair, but as Steveruch just said, different but still good.

    If you want to keep your SG in the 1.070-1.072 ballpark, I'd bump up the total IBUs to 50-60 by
    adjusting your 60 minute addition. That way the finished beer won't come across as so sweet.
