. I let them float freely but I put a bag in the fermenting bucket and ran the hose through
that to filter out most of the hops. I do something similar. I put a 5 gallon paint strainer in
my bottling ...

I found this old thread, and I'm using this recipe to make some muscadine wine. Since this is
my first wine I'm checking to make sure I understand. Why am I pulling off the yeast cake
before I'm addin...

Mine popped up and stalled. They aren't in the best location. I think it's a combo of too much

thing that went wrong with this beer is my thermostat failed while I was out of town and froze

I wonder if you could get gunk in the diptube not enough to block flow but enough to knock CO2
out of solution and not see it in the line. I wondered the same thing. I have a 2 year old and
a 4 year o...

No both are open. Plus the beer inside is carbonated.

When you say flat are you talking about lack of head, or lack of CO2 in solution. I've had
beers that were fully carbed, but had no head to speak of. I could still see a lot of bubbles
