    How would you adjust to make a 6 gallon batch?

    Your OG reading was low because you didn't get proper extract mixture and it stratified. you
    probably drew your sample from the top of the pot where the mix was thinner. the reading you
    got Monday nig...

    You're not lagering. You want to be fermenting. Lager means "to store". That's when you store
    the beer at near freezing temperatures. You want to be at optimum fermentation
    temperatures.What yeast str...

    pushing the lid doesn't mean anything. all that does is increase the pressure to above what can
    escape through the gaps in the lid and most, but not all, of the pressure goes out the airlock.
    the lid ...

    hardware, hydrometer, etc.My wife would like to try winemaking and I was just wondering if I

    are you brewing in a bucket? if so the non-bubbling airlock doesn't mean anything. this is a
    common problem with buckets. the lids don't get sealed completely and the gas escapes through
    the gaps and ...

    I got a kit in a box(don't judge) from the local brew depot for a lager since it's winter time
    and it's cold enough in my garage for lagering. It's similar to an Octoberfest beer. I'm in
    Atlanta. I've...

    I think Shake is onto something... From their list of beers they like, it seems like it is the
    well-balanced, lighter beers. Not too malty, not too hoppy. Perfectly balanced. On the
    dislikes, they do ...

    Mr Shake is correct. Those aren't hoppy Belgians, but they're Belgians. Note also that Chimay,
    Allagash and Yuengling aren't beers, they're breweries, and they make multiple beers
    each.Correction:Yuen...

    do you not like the piney, citrusy, floral notes of the ales? if so, that is hops.give us some
    beers you like/hate and we can narrow it in a little more.if you like bocks and lagers it is
    most likely ...
