    I've been away for a while, found a new brewing partner and we're looking to start brewing

    So, how long on average do you let your beer condition or age in the bottle before chilling and
    drinking?

  • Posted in thread: First Brew First Taste: Vinegar/Sharp/Turned Cider taste. on 03-13-2010 at 04:37 AM
    Okay, so we gave it another 2 weeks and tried one warm today to see if it was worth chilling

    I tried 2 and they both tasted the same. I have a plastic bucket for fermenting, so I couldn't

    don't add ferm...

    Bumping this with a follow up question.If I had used a base malt in my steeping process, would
    the enzymes in say, 2-row, helped to convert my other grains (choco and crystal) into
    fermentable sugars?...

  • Posted in thread: First Brew: Much lighter color and OG than expected... on 02-01-2010 at 12:44 AM
    Thanks for the replies!I crushed the choco and crystal, but the flaked oats came next and I
    didn't have to crush those, so when I bagged my barley at the store, I totally forget to crush
