    geez, merciless ribbing for a mistitled threadhe meant "Accidentally fermented at the exact
    temp I wanted"

    So the light malt extract is not the same as amber extract, the amber likely has munich and
    some caramel in it like c-60. I actually think it's better to go with light in most instances
    so you have co...

    It looks like you need more extract. Are your 150g quantites light? Dry I assume? And the
    caramel malt is a grain, not extract?The other problem you face is that it's hard to know the
    composition of d...

    Agreed, RWDHAHB. It's very likely fine unless a fruitfly going by managed to fall directly into
    the wort or something. If fermentation started, all the better. Just replace the stopper and
    carry on. F...

    That looks like the exact recipe so I think we are missing the list of ingredients you have?

    I have a 5 gallon kettle. a 5% brew would be 6 lbs of grain and the total volume would be 5.25
    gallons.I regularly do 2.5-3 gal batches in my 5 gal pot (I used to use a 3 gal cooler but
    prefer BIAB no...

    So the sample tastes good, we haven't seen your recipe or mash temp but all pretty much agree
    you're about where you should be on FG, sounds like a win! :)Just FYI US-05 should be good up
    to about 11-...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling beer after cold crash? on 10-21-2016 at 02:45 PM
    It's fine, just let it warm up after it's bottled. If you're using a calculator with temp use
    the highest ferm temp the beer achieved, not the current temp.

  • Posted in thread: Gravity Variances on 10-19-2016 at 02:44 PM
    I'm thinking maybe you didn't stir the wort well prior to taking your preboil gravity and got
    mostly first runnings. 1.072 would make sense as a first runnings gravity, but not as a preboil
    gravity fo...

    Agree about the carboy. I'd swap that kit for one with a bottling bucket.
