    Thanks for the replies. I'm not thrilled about the wording of my original post but the
    statement above "never try to get a higher finishing gravity by pulling the beer early" answers
    my question. I wa...

    I'm having a tough time understanding the concept of FG. Now that I'm brewing big IPAs I'm
    looking to obtain a sweeter beer, which implies that the beer needs to finish higher, but I'm
    also trying to ...

  • Posted in thread: Adding fruit to secondary, how to sanitize the fruit? on 06-17-2016 at 09:31 PM
    I didn't get any feedback on the above post so I forged ahead and went my own way on this
    recipe. My batch started out life as a German Heff. After primary I split the bucket into two
    2.5 gal batches ...

    I'm not sure why everyone is so concerned about infecting their beer by adding fruit to
    secondary...I know it's a little scary at first but I have never infected a beer by adding
    fruit in secondary.I ...

    Thanks guys. I knew nothing about this. I'll have to research this change over and consider
    removing the old ones.

    I've been having trouble with my taps getting sticky and last night took the cake when i tried
    to pull an IPA and had to use so much force that I broke the brass handle while the beer was
    tricking out...

    This won't apply to all applications, but I bought a piece of #4 SS mesh and cut out a round
    section to fit the bottom of my fermentation bucket. I pushed a 'dome' into it so the center of
    it sits abo...

    Even if there isn't any contamination, I'd expect the lost extract represented the easiest to
    pull out of the cubes, so re-soaking the cubes is unlikely to provide the expected
    intensity...Cheers!I th...

    I have been soaking some oak cubes and bourbon in a ziplock Baggie for over a month now. Today
    in a senior moment my wife managed to lodge the Baggie between a cabinet and the microwave
    puncturing the...

    Well, unfortunately this (expensive) beer turned out to be a great lesson of what NOT to do.
    Obviously using the Home Depot paint strainer bags just does NOT work for pellet hops (despite
    that I had s...
