    This. Even 1 small scratch inside the bucket can ruin a entire batch.Thanks for the replies. On
    closer inspection I did see a couple of gouges (probably from shoving the oversized top of my
    brew kettl...

    As long as they are not scrached on the inside they are good to go...Visible scratches, to the
    naked eye or really small stuff too hard to see without aid? I don't see anything of note but
    I'd hate to...

    I have some older plastic 5 gal fermenters, maybe 4-5 years old. Battle worn but still worthy,
    maybe. Permanent stains from idophor and beer with the occasional krausen stains that I can't
    seem to get...

    The reason for that is of you Have yeast/ turb from a stout and pitched a pale ale on that you
    will get coloring and flavoring from the leftover stout turb. The other way around is not
    nearly as big a...

    I thought I had read somewhere on here that dumping wort on top of the trub of an fresh batch
    is fine, in fact I've been doing it off an on for about a year now. Somewhere I recall someone
    saying that...

    I have regularly noticed when sanitizing my fermenting vessels (in particular white ones) that
    after 15 minutes or so that containers that were once pristine take in these random block spots
    and flake...

    Wow, I totally missed that somewhere. I'm glad you guys steered me the right direction in the
    nick of time. The starter is literally cooling as I write. I've just made a habit out of making
    starters o...

    I'm making a starter tonight for some Notty. The pack states the importance of hydrating the
    yeast with water before pitching but it occurred to me why can't I skip the hydration step and
    pour the dry...

    For a 5 gallon batch, 6 lb of LME plus 1 lb of DME should give you an original gravity of about
    1.052. If you leave out all of the DME, you'd have an OG of 1.043. How much does 3/4 cup of
    your DME wei...

    Tonight I was brewing a recipe that called for 6lbs of pale extract and 1 lb of DME. The last
    10 minutes in when I was ready to add the yeast nutrient I realized that I forgot to add in the
    1lb of DME...
