Posted in thread: Should I pitch more yeast to avoid stalled fermentation? on 11-22-2013 at 05:36 AM
So thanks for the advice and reassurance. I took a gravity reading and it is currently down to
1.008. Like I said before I didn't mix the wort very well and got a totally wacko OG. Is there
a way to d...

The 1.072 estimate - is that before or after counting the extra 3 lbs of corn sugar you
added?Regardless, my thoughts are that if it's taken it that far, it has likely already
exhausted the simple sug...

Why were your numbers? How much yeast did you pitch?Not sure what the OG was, I failed to mix
the wort well enough and I got a reading of 1.132. The recipe says OG should be 1.072. I
pitched the yeast...

I took a stab at Jamil's Belgian golden strong ale. I added the 3lbs of cane sugar during the
boil but am now beginning to question if that may have been a poor decision. I was listening to

After my OG reading was a 1.136 I realized I didn't mix the wort together with the water as

fermenter (dark on ...
Posted in thread: Saison Fermentation Temp Question on 06-27-2013 at 05:36 PM
So I brewed a saison a month ago (OG - 1.048) and it hit its FG (1.006) on Fathers Day. I
didn't use the "Brewing Classic Styles" recipe but I was hoping to gradually raise the temp to
80 or so throug...

I am not certain as to how current it is but the BJCP style app I have on my phone says strong

Posted in thread: 2012 Chimay Grande Reserve on 05-25-2013 at 02:34 AM
Does anyone know if this is any different than the standard grande reserve (blue)? I haven't
been able to find anything online that gives a definite answer. Also, would this significantly
improve if I...
Posted in thread: Is a ring in the bottleneck necessarily a sign of infection? on 04-23-2013 at 02:35 AM
I brewed an oatmeal stout 6+ months ago but it tasted bad so I put it aside to see if it would
taste better down the line. I went recently to grab a bottle and noticed a ring around the top
of the bee...
Posted in thread: If you purchase beer cold should you keep it cold? on 04-07-2013 at 04:41 AM
Thanks, y'all.How long would be too long to age/cellar this beer? Should I worry too much about
losing some of the hop characteristics?
