    you'll probably pop the cap or rupture the sealed soda bottle, the yeast will produce many
    times the volume of Co2 over the course of the fermentation than is available in the dead space
    of the sealed...

    Never experienced it just from time in ales myself, even leaving brews on the yeast for two or
    three months.But I always regret trying to brew in August, that's what I get for not setting up
    a cooler!

  • Posted in thread: What conditions cause autolysis - yeast death and rupture? on 03-25-2013 at 04:05 AM
    from my experience you can get autolysis by letting a beer go through primary fermentation and
    letting it clear in the same vessel, and then holding it at 80*F or better for a few more weeks
    in the fe...

    Have you looked at it? I bet the hydro sample must be pretty clear by now. If your gravity is
    stable, cold crash and rack to keg. No worries IMO. :mug:

    My Brew club did a “collaborative” for our 20th Anniversary… We got a nice note on the bottle
    and those of use that assisted in the bottling got a few beers to take home (see the link
    below).Hell; if ...

    I think that brewery must have killed him for his recipe, so they wouldn't have worry about who
    gets what credit.See, just goes to show, as a Home Brewer you do NOT want to go pro! Once
    you're doing i...

  • Posted in thread: silly question about fermenting on 02-21-2013 at 10:03 PM
    I've left beers in the primary for 2 months with no ill effects, I believe some have gone
    longer. It will be fine as long as your temps are stable and don't go much over 70*F after the
    initial active ...
