They are trying to find a buyer. Let's hope they find one and it continues. I saved and saved

I've done this several times. I can wort so it makes it much easier. Start small quantity and
low gravity. I start at 300ml. Not sure how I got that volume. I make sure my sanitation is
spot on. It ta...

I had this problem with a Kolsch a few months ago. I tossed it but learned a lesson. I now just
unroll a section of paper towel and rubber band it over the neck of my flasks. I then put some

I responded to this from my cell and it didn't show. I would get a hydrometer and check gravity
in a week. Make sure you sanitize your thief when pulling your sample, and don't return it to

Did your preboil volume reach your predicted level? Did you boil off more than you predicted?
Did you calculate the grain absorption correctly? I wouldn't worry much about you first batches
