I have a Black IPA brewed a week ago, 2/16. 1.076 OG. Pitched at ~67*.I set my controller to
64*, when I checked the next morning it had taken off and was at 66*. I lowered the temp to 62*
that same m...

How much wort did you leave in your kettle?** Could it been as much as half a gallon, meaning
you really ended up with a 5.5 gallon batch even though you're only fermenting 5 gallons?** The

I have two hydrometers and both read 1.000 in water. They read consistently between the two of
them.I don't always use the same extract. I use what the local store has as well as the stuff

When using a brewing calculator like BeerSmith, Brewersfriend.com etc (or even just

or less). For a...

I know the crystal has some unfermentables, but I would expect it to be the same amount as last
time since I didn't change that bit of the recipe, just added DME. And the very same yeast had

I made a batch of IPA before, based off of Drake's IPA, and it came out fantastic. I added
