I have an Irish red in primary now that started bubbling like it was pissed off within a couple
hours of pitching the yeast, so much that I couldn't keep fluid in the airlock, it would just
spit it al...
Posted in thread: using yeast to carb sodas on 05-20-2011 at 05:06 AM
You can't really carbonate syrup with yeast, for a number of reasons. First of all, that
concentration of sugar will kill the yeast. Second, you generally use a little syrup with a lot
of water, so th...

Alright, I'm having a hard time imagining a batch size in which a teaspoon of sucrose would be
adequate for sweetness, and four cups of maltodextrin would make for less than gelatinous

I've got a half-batch of this mashing right now. This will be my first batch of beer ever (yes,

If you're careful and use a plastic test bottle, I have made a bunch of batches in glass 12 oz
with no problems. I just like glass better.Have you successfully used beer bottles? I've used
the 12oz gl...

Okay, the partial-mash root beer is done. It didn't help at all for head retention, but it is a
