    I have dreams of becoming a pro brewer and eventually opening my own chilli bar/ Brew pub.
    I concentrate on fermenting up mainly high gravity beers. But delve into moderate for the kiddies.

    I'm pretty sure pitching champagne yeast will not help with this brew. THe "problem" may be
    that you end up with a higher than expected/desired final gravity because of the amount of
    non-fermentable s...

    Would be a horrible idea. After fermentation is complete, You have beer. It is what it is. If
    you ended up with 4.5 gal beer after bottling is said and done, maybe start with a little over
    5 gal. to r...

    This is another one of the reasons I want to try this. I have tried this before. 3/4 teaspoon
    of priming sugar per bottle dissolved in equal parts hot water. When dissolved it measures out
    to be 1 1/8...

    I had the same problem my first batch. I rocked the pail to bring the yeast back into
    suspension and 6 hrs later, I saw action in the airlock. I also took gravity readings, probably
    far too often, but...

    I wouldn't recommend making a starter out of dry yeast, but re-hydrating it might help. And
    unless the kit was sitting there for over a year, chances are the yeast is ok. Dry yeast packs
    have a life a...

    First, congrats! You will have beer.I'm not familiar with that particular recipe - I'm not at
    all sure why maltodextrin is part of it. But you are correct, it will contribute to the gravity
    but is unf...

  • Posted in thread: 10 gallon SS commercial vs. keggle. Please help me decide on 01-20-2011 at 12:04 AM
    Thanks for the feedback. I was actually talking about the fact that the mouth on this
    particular keggle looked wider than how most are cut, based on the pics I've seen around here.
    It does seem to be ...

  • Posted in thread: Good Deal on Keggle? on 01-19-2011 at 11:58 PM
    I agree with above posters. Although, with the bulkhead, thermometer and sight glass, it would
    be a good buy. $80-100. Get a dip tube and a false bottom, and you have yourself a 15.5 gal.
    kettle. Or k...

    There is nothing wrong with using aluminum pots....probably more hb'ers use aluminum kettles
    than those who use SS.....Maybe you need to read this before you start ruling out aluminum
    kettles. absolu...

    Since you didnt hit your target temp. nor the s.g., Sounds as if this beer will be very full
    bodied and very sweet. If you suspect your yeast may not attenuate down enough, I myself, would
    pitch some ...
