Posted in thread: Why the discrepancy in beersmith? on 11-07-2014 at 03:44 AM
As some others have said, the estimated gravity readings are only as good as your profile.
Based on what little info that's been given on your actual recipe, I can't tell if this would
be an unusual e...

I think Islam is the only main religion that shuns alcohol. I'm mainly Jewish myself (which is
not anti-alcohol...wines are common for some holidays). Pretty sure Catholism is the same way.
There may ...

You could still be having fermentation: it's either really slow or the active fermentation is
already done (not uncommon for low alcohol beers fermented at a high temp). It's best not to go

Well Starsan or not...with extract brewing, there is more stratifying with your boiled extract
vs top off water. Unless you really screw something off...your gravity readings SHOULD be what
Posted in thread: Kegging Q: 4 days at 20 psi, I day at 30 psi, still flat?? Why?? on 08-03-2013 at 05:43 AM
I think a corny is 5.5 gal. I'm pretty sure a corny is 5 gallon. I normally secondary with 5
gallon carboys and then syphon off to a corny keg. If it's a good volume, the carboy will be
all the way up...

:mug:I will crank to 30 psi tonight again absolutely ... I will try your test Another thing you

quickest way ...

This yielded a theoretical bitternes if 119 IBU's (Tinseth scale).Well IMO, you won't tell too

Posted in thread: Does OG relate to alcohol level? on 08-03-2013 at 03:17 AM
Usually...but to determine the ABV in your batch of beer, you take the OG and the final
reading. For many beers, you do assume it should be around what your OG reading is. However,
the bigger the OG t...

You liked your Kolsch it seems. I'd make a California Common: a good light hybrid in a similar
vein. See what differences there are. Tonight I did notice my local package store has one
brewer getting ...

My first experience to brewing beer. I'd just stop there. You're talking about some kind of
questionable germinated barley...that's still iffy if it's an OK malt for AG brewing. You have
plenty of oth...
