    so how much cane sugar or dextrose should I add to a 12 ounce bottle?about a teaspoon.

  • Posted in thread: Residual malt/sweetness on 07-26-2011 at 04:15 PM
    I'm assuming you are using extracts instead of all grain, but to get a good sweet beer you need
    to steep some specialty grains when you boil... Caramel malts work well for this and the higher
    the numb...

    the best way would be to add a priming solution to all 5 gallons (after racking off of the
    yeast and trub). To make a priming solution: Boil 3/4 cup of corn sugar (4 oz by weight), or
    2/3 cup of white...

    there are a ton of home brewers... the map may get overcrowded... and I'm not sure of the
    benefit to mapping home brewers would be. Maybe a map of home brewing supply stores and
    resturaunt equipment s...

    beer, which sounded pretty good. the recipe was 4lb lme, 4lb agave nectar and 2oz cascades with
    1lb carap...

    leaving the beer on the yeast for two weeks will allow the yeast to absorb the diacityl that it
    produced during the initial fermentation... if the green beer was near the final gravity you
    shouldn't h...

    usually a day or two is enough for cold crashing.

  • Posted in thread: Kegging 101 on 07-22-2011 at 05:16 PM
    cold crashing in the fermentor will allow you to remove more yeast and some suspended solids
    that cause haze before racking so if that is something you would prefer, then by all means do
    it before keg...

    The browning is a good sign that it is near picking time. The hop aroma should be at its
    strongest when the hop is ready to be picked. When you think it is time to harvest, the hop
    should be papery fe...
