Posted in thread: When and How Often to Measure FG on 01-07-2016 at 07:51 PM
Unless you are in a hurry, you will make better beer and be at FG 99.99% of the time by letting
it primary ferment for 21 days before even checking it. I don't even measure FG anymore. I just

I would mash 6 lbs of the 2 row and then use about 4 lbs of light DME (dried malt extract) to

That method is fine. I have used that method of harvesting for at least 20 -25 batches and all

With only four batches under your belt and the tank almost empty, I would think you had a slow
leak. I've carbonated about 20 2.5 gallon batches over the past year and a few months and I
still have CO...

Wanted to update those who helped me out! First beer has been carbonated and serving for a week
