    Do you check the Gravity every day ?No I don't check the gravity daily, at least not while
    obvious fermentation (frequent airlock bubbles) is occurring. Don't see the point of risking
    infection to get...

    I hear ya bro. Batch #3 was probably too soon to strike out on my own. I have now brewed 6 kits
    though (with 2 more in the mail), and it's getting a little old doing the same old cookbook
    brewing. I t...

    Hi Dave,I have the book "How to Brew" by John Palmer. I've read pretty much everything to do
    with extract brewing in it. Perhaps the book you recommended would be helpful too. I agree with

    said to transfer to...

    I prefer DME over LME for two reasons: 1) Pound for pound, you get about 20% more fermentables,
    since none of the weight of DME is water. 2) LME tends to disappear to the bottom of your boil
    bucket an...

    Update: Not a great beer. I dry-hopped in the primary for way too long and it tasted like
    alfalfa. It took months before it became palatable, and never was very good. This time I'm just
    going to run a...
