    Just tested with my hydrometer and after temp correction I'm only at 1.034, 1.032 before temp
    correction. My OG was 1.056.

    I guess I should verify that my thermometers are working correctly. As for this batch of Sweet
    Stout, should I bother adding another packet of yeast to it and try to save the batch?

    I am using a refractometer for my readings. I wasn't aware I needed to correct them. I just
    assumed they are reading the beer's alcohol based on amount of light passing through. I do
    re-hydrate the ye...

    I'm having a heck of a time lately with my last 3 beers getting to my FG and I'm trying to find
    out the source of the issue. I've recently switched to using dry yeast, and also have been
    doubling up o...

  • Posted in thread: How to get my Hefeweizen in bottles to haze up? on 08-01-2013 at 03:23 PM
    When I bottle my Hefeweizen and attempt to pour 3/4 of the bottle, swirl bottle and then pour
    rest to get that nice haze it just ends up swirling up chunks of yeast into the beer and really
    looks unap...

    Think I got it solved. There were two issues, one I had the gasket for the lid upside down and
    two the blow-off tube was leaking around where it connected to the conical. The soapy water
    helped with t...

    A buddy of mine gave me his 7-gal More Beer chilling conical since he moved up to larger
    batches. I have been keeping it in the garage and doing my usual way of brewing since that was
    what I was comfo...

    I eneded up using Marine 5200. It's still curing but looks ok. After it dries I may see about
    adding a thin foam gasket to line the inside at the top.

    I already have the cooler and have cut the hole in the lid. I'm just looking for any
    suggestions to clean up and seal the exposed foam in the hole.

    I'm in the process of making a rolling keg-cooler out of this: igloo ice cube 70-qt. I've seen
    it done before, and thought it was pretty straight forward. Cut out hole in lid for top of keg
    and that's...
