    I've had the beer in room temp areas since I first bottled it. Going to put in a couple grains
    for each bottle, re-cap and shake 'em up. I'll put them somewhere warmer this time.

    I think for me, it's more wanting to enjoy what the beer would taste like with carbonation. I
    feel like it will be even better with the carbonation. I'm assuming if I use dry, just a grain
    per bottle ...

    Hmm, sounds like an easy enough plan. It was a smaller batch, so I'd only have about 15 bottles
    to do this with. Any recommendations on how much yeast to use, and should I add any more sugar
    with them...

    So, I searched the forum but couldn't find anything similar enough to my issue.I bottled an
    oak-aged coffee/vanilla porter (Oak was soaked in bourbon for a few weeks) back in October of
    last year. As ...

    This might be a situation where you will want to look into getting an external temperature
    regulator to set the temp in your fridge so you CAN do lagering. That's why I got my fridge.

  • Posted in thread: Let's talk about converting an APA to a DIPA on 02-07-2013 at 08:17 PM
    The original APA was a modified version of an existing AIPA style I found. The first IPA I made
    was a different beer. It was single-hop Citra (Actually was loosely based off a Zombie Dust
    clone) and j...

    Hey all.So for my first brew of 2013 (I know, I'm getting started late), I want to take my
    first brew ever and convert it to a double/imperial IPA. The original recipe was an APA as
    follows:6.6lb Pale...

    Hey all,My wife has requested something made with pomegranate and honeysuckle for this summer.
    I have already started brainstorming recipes. I am thinking of modifying my existing Cream ale
    or Kölsch ...

    Thanks everyone. Makes me feel good. I have some mead I'll be breaking into in a week or two
    (Bottled back in May) so I'll have something to work on instead.I'll just let the bottles chill
    out! I only...

    I bottled a batch of aged porter about 2.5 weeks ago.This beer is high gravity and was aged on
    bourbon-soaked oak, coffee and vanilla for about 3.5 months, give or take, before I bottled. I
    bottled wi...
