Quick update, I bottled today. Surprisingly, the mold(?) did not seem to affect the flavor or
aroma of the beer much. I think I sensed an ever-so-slight apple/peary fruity aroma, but it was
tough to t...

All this dissing of Guinness' flavor is pretty disgusting on a site like this. It's a dry Irish
stout. It's the classic style - all other dry stout aims for that flavor (if in style). Those

Wine whip, sloshing carboy, splashing, drill bit with paint stirrer... doesn't matter how you

Tasting flat beer in the fermenter - especially if you are a new brewer - is an almost

Hmm. It's strange that I'm certain the reading I'd done in the past have typically warned that
fermenting in the primary for more than a month is bad - off flavors, soapiness etc - and for
the life in...

Agreed, leave it. Once you start getting bubbles, you know that CO2 is pushing the oxygen out.
As long as you don't disturb it, you are fine.The issues arise when you have unpurged
secondaries with lo...

The extract flavor may fade with time, but fermentation won't fix it. Yeast eat sugars, not
flavor extracts, so that won't change.Dumping the bottles back into a fermenter is pretty much
Posted in thread: Putting yeast back into suspension before racking into bottling bucket??? on 05-15-2013 at 01:33 PM
Someone was telling me that if you let the beer clear by letting it sit in the primary for a
couple of weeks that there may not be enough yeast left in suspension for the priming sugar to
do its job a...
