  • While in Sandwich, MA, I was in a store looking for wine. While looking around I saw some 1-gallon kits for home brewing. I bought it and.....long story short, it was meh so I poured it down the sink. But I had been bitten by the bug. I went to my LHBS for some Star-San and ended up with a starter kit. And here I am.

    Couple of days in the fridge and it's looking better BUT (caveat) I did pour this beer more
    carefully as well so it's probably those two factors combined.

    Needs to be in the fridge for a couple of days - this dissolves more of the CO2 in solutuon,
    which gives you longer lasting head.Lacing itself is more a funtion of your glass - if you have
    any deterge...

    This has been in the bottle for about 30 days now but I will leave it longer. It was only in
    the fridge for a couple of hours as well. I will test another bottle after it has been in the
    fridge for a ...

    went to try one at two weeks and I noticed it wasnt carbed that much. Well I think it has
    something to do w...

    Today I popped open an Old Peculier clone and it was super fizzy. No explosions but the glass
    was full of head. I scooped a little out, poured in the rest of the beer then sat down to taste
    test it. Y...

    +1 on those thoughts....And if you don't get it carbonated up you can always add a little more
    yeast at bottling time without effecting clarity.How do you do that when the beer is already
    bottled? Are...

    Here's what you really should do. Try ANYTHING you've never tried before. That way you'll
    actually figure out what YOU like. Since I got into the hobby a few months ago I find myself
    steering away fro...

    I've never waited until I need one but I use one anyway. I ferment in 7.5 gallon buckets so
    that's a lot of headspace. I've had active fermentations but only one that actually kicked out
    any material,...
