    You didn't indicate how much priming sugar you added. Just because you used a calculator
    doesn't mean we can rule out wrong amounts due to user error :)

  • Posted in thread: Too much yeast resulting in over-carbonation? on 07-08-2015 at 02:56 AM
    Where did I go wrong? Too much yeast? Too much priming sugar?That is a somewhat high amount of
    priming sugar, but I doubt the source of your issue. Did you measure FG at all before deciding
    to bottle?...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast/Aeration Question on 07-08-2015 at 02:45 AM
    If you already have krausen, definitely don't oxygenate. The lack of airlock activity is
    probably just due to the fermentation bucket not being sealed, or an otherwise slow

    [1] Strictly speaking the additional fermentation from adding sugar will lower the FG by a tiny
    amount since alcohol has a lower density than water, but that is independent of the sweet/dry
    issue and ...

    So I figure my og was closer to 1.058.You may not even need to guess on this one. If you're
    confident on the amount of extract and sugar you used and you know the volume at the end of the
    boil (or a t...

    Adding dextrose (or any other pure sugar) does not affect the final gravity at all, only the
    O.G. (and therefore the % attenuation).Please explain. This is counter to conventional wisdom.
    It's certain...

    Airlock is still bubbling slightly, but all of the yeast fell out of suspensionThe airlock
    activity is probably just continued off-gassing of CO2. After that many days, it's likely the
    main fermentati...

    Its not done fermenting yetWhat is this based on? Is the gravity still changing, or are you
    seeing the air-lock bubble?

  • Posted in thread: Any way to figure out ABV at this point? on 06-02-2015 at 03:57 AM
    My concern is am I at 2 to 3%I pitched normally on brew day and has been in primary for a
    month.It's probably fully fermented by now and even decently conditioned. Taste it and see if
    you like it.

  • Posted in thread: Carbonation question on 05-31-2015 at 10:31 PM
    The bottles were new, so therefore clean. All I did was dunk them in warm water, give them a
    quick bottle brushing, and let them dry. When dried I gave them a shot of star san. They sat on
    a bottle dr...
