    I agree this doesn't seem possible--any of it. But based on what I tasted, it seems spot on.
    From now on, I'm taking OG/FG photos for later reference. I'm just bulk aging the beer on oak
    cubes. Once t...

    You did ask for a sanitary weld, right? That's not a sanitary weld, period. Whether it needs to
    be isn't part of the negotiation with your welder - you specified a sanitary weld on a pot and
    did not g...

    I think I read that American Ale yeast craps out around 10%. Evidently, it will go a bit
    higher! I've just been fermenting at room temp, which in my house is around 75 degrees or so,
    though my wife le...

    Sorry, one more thing. Can it bulk age in secondary in my garage or will the temp swings be too
    varied? I can age it in my house if needed but would prefer not to see a corny keg all the
    time.--Thanks...

    OK, this is threw a me a curveball. I took a gravity reading today and it was down to 1.012 for
    an ABV of 14.7%. This seems incredibly high for a 9 day fermentation with American Ale
    yeast--which shou...

    WL 099 is supposed to be similar in character to their 002 English. I've heard from multiple
    sources that it's a good yeast for almost every beer style. Don't dream of having this beer
    served to anyon...

    Yes!!! You're correct; I misread! Obviously I'm a bit new at this. The OG was 1.122, which is
    much more in line with my expectations. What a huge relief. So maybe I should try a smack pack
    pack of (Be...

    Hi There:I brewed a recipe (trailing this post) collated from a number of sources. I was really
    keen to get this one right and was shooting for a 1.11 OG; reality was a 1.22OG!! Since the
    wort was alr...

    Hi:That sounds amazing. I'd love to hear how it turned out. I have a few questions: What
    distiller did you get the barrel from? What was in it before? What did you do to rehydrate the
    barrel?I have a ...

  • Posted in thread: Restarted Fermentation? on 11-03-2012 at 02:51 AM
    Hi:When the water was at a rolling boil, the thermometer was at 212*, so I'm thinking it's on
    point. I just gave the carboy a good swirl and that seemed to do some good. Quick question,
    though: when t...
