  • My wife and son watched a 'How's its made' TV show and thought it was something that I might like. They tivo'd the show for me and I finally got around to watching it a few weeks later. I quickly found this forum, did a bunch a research and brewed my first extract in Jan, 2009. The beer sucked but it didn't stop me from wanting to brew more. Now, its a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy. Every batch since the first one has been great, with each one getting better. Its a great hobby to have - little bit of science and sort of challenging to understand everything and make a variety of great brews.

    Get a new airlock. I never really had water evaporate before. May

    One night doesn't hurt. I've done it multiple time.

    maybe you bottled too soon and it wasn't done fermenting all the way?

    I've done it many times, no worries. Any contaminants that might happen to get in are killed
    with the boil. However, the wort stays hot overnight so no need to worry.

    I have a favorite Belgian Triple and it uses a single East Kent Goldings add @ 60 minutes. +1
