    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
    that long. Only other issue I could pick at would be how sour it would get, and of course how
    much oxygen th...

    I was afraid of that.... hahaha I am pretty timid of the brett. I fear the process of balancing
    the aging of vs. bottle bombs (vs. my patience of course...)

    I am trying to pick a yeast for my new, old ale...:drunk:..... I keep running onto a muntons
    old ale kit. Now, I have already designed and bought my own recipe sans the yeast. I have a
    couple of packe...

    I used .5 oz of Spaltz in my flameout leaving .5 oz in the bag still. I used clean hands and
    scissors to open the bag and then put the remaining hops in a ziplock and then back in the
    fridge. Since th...

    (OP here) Just letting you all know how it turned out. I bottled with 3/4 cup corn sugar and
    1.5 cups of splenda (the cup for cup [to sugar] baking splenda). Everyone seemed to like it but
    the women i...

    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
    ramped up the heat in my brew room 2 or three degrees and it's fermenting away again
    wonderfully. Here are ...

    update, but ...
