  • Posted in thread: Forgot to stir priming sugar on 07-23-2009 at 05:27 PM
    Bottled 3 gallons of a Belgian Tripel last night. Carbed to 3.2 volumes by adding a boiled and
    dissolved corn sugar mixture to bottling bucket. I just remembered that I did not stir the
    mixture in the...

    Did you do a starch conversion test? Did you use the same base malt?Used 2-row pale for the
    base, yes. Did not do a test, but I always check gravity post sparge. My pre-boil gravity
    reading was 1.053 ...

    How long has it been in primary?Brewed on 7-10-09. So 11 days in primary so far. Fermentation
    pretty much stopped on the 14th, and it's just been sitting still ever since.

    Brewed Jamil's Lagunitas IPA clone. Recipe calls for 158-160 degree mash, so I did. Followed
    the recipe to the letter, pitched a starter of 1968, fermented at 66 degrees. After 3 days
    fermentation slo...

    So basically as long as I don't transfer to secondary, i'll be OK? I wasn't planning on using a
    secondary for any of these batches, but some of them might stay in primary for a month or so.

  • Posted in thread: 2 Gallons in 5 Gallon Carboy on 09-10-2008 at 02:03 PM
    I've recently started brewing some two-gallon test batches to try out some new recipes before
    making a larger batch. I've been fermenting them in a 5 gallon carboy since it's the smallest
    i've got. Sh...

  • Posted in thread: Barleywine - Adding Yeast at Bottling on 09-05-2008 at 08:32 PM
    Brewed a Barleywine (9.5% ABV) back in early May. Transfered to secondary after fermentation
    finished and it's been there ever since. I'm planning on bottling it this week and i'm
    wondering how much y...

  • Posted in thread: Slow Carbing Question on 07-07-2008 at 03:29 PM
    Brewed an IPA on May 25th, 08. Fermentation finished in about 10 days. Left it in the primary
    for about 4 weeks. Dry hopped in the primary for another 7 days, then bottled. Two days before
    bottling I ...

  • Posted in thread: counter flow chiller on 06-07-2008 at 02:43 PM
    I gravity feed through my chiller, so I can't speed up the flow of the wort, but what I do to
    regulate temp is slow down the water flow. In the summer, I can run it full bore, but in winter
    I was havi...

    to the OP, do yourself a favor and listen to the episode I linked to above before doing
    anything with oak.+1 on listening to that episode before doing anything. I listened to it for
    the first time the...
