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

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...

I thought I had read somewhere on here that dumping wort on top of the trub of an fresh batch

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

I'm making a starter tonight for some Notty. The pack states the importance of hydrating the

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
