Posted in thread: Extract Tripel Kit stuck at 1.022 on 11-16-2015 at 08:29 PM
Extract usually won't ferment as dry as an all grain batch. An all grain mash at 141F - 145F
MIGHT have fermented out lower but it's doubtful. Especially at 1.086 starting gravity.What's
the science b...

If it was flat at 7000 ft, it was flat at sea-level. Changing the altitude won't change the
carb level, or CO2 pressure inside the keg (if it is disconnected from the gas system.) What
will change is ...

Honestly this recipe is quite a mess. WAY too much crystal and victory. No Belgian candi syrup.

I'm trying to learn how recipe creation works, so I can move away from kits. I got a free app
on my phone that helps with some of the math, and I've been playing around with it and trying
Posted in thread: Can you secondary into individual 1 gallon jugs and split the batch? on 10-16-2015 at 10:16 PM
I've done this with mead, to test out different spices. Didn't notice any real difference
