I'm not sure what to do with it. My girlfriend's family this passed Christmas did a secret
santa, pick a name out of a hat and spend $50.00 thing and I got a brewer's best Belgian Triple
kit. Even my ...

P.S... is this a definite "No" on the muntons dry?

huh, thats really not as bad as I thought it would be. I have kept even milder beers in for

It's starting to look like my dubbel will finish a bit high at FG 1.019. I have been debating
weather or not to pitch more yeast for bottling. I started at OG 1.079 and pitched 11.5g of
Safbrew t-58. ...

History: I had the common 1.020 conundrum recently for a couple days. I roused the yeast and
