  • Just got curious and bought a kit and made an IPA which turned out to be one of the best beers I've ever had. So I pursued to make a few more and me nor my friends have been disappointed yet. Overtime I am accumulating more equipment and improving my brewing methods. Much to the help of all of you here at HbT.

    Ever think about first wort hopping? I've had a lot of success using Citra for FWH.

    As long as you cleaned the fermenter with PBW or one step throughly you maybe okay My first 6
    batches I didn't sanitize as I thought One Step was enough and o never had an infection. I bet

  • Posted in thread: Slow fermentation? Confirmation question. on 01-11-2015 at 08:02 PM
    What yeast did you use? I am curious because I have a milk stout that I used Northwest Ale and
    the krausen hasn't sunk yet. 7 days is not long enough for full fermentation. Sometime
    fermention is fast...

    I wouldn't worry too much about the hop slurry. If some of it gets into the fermenter it will

    Looks like you had some healthy yeast. I've had my FG be lower than usually (1.008) but never
    that low.

    Lots of people don't choose to do secondary due to the extra work and potential for infection.
    I only use secondary when I am dry hopping or adding another flavoring agent (vanilla, cacao
    nibs, etc).R...
