Oh man, it's a lost cause, just wait a couple weeks, prime it, bottle it up and send it to me
for disposal :DLike the others said, you're best to leave it as is. I think you'll be happier
with 4 gallo...

Sometimes the best way to learn is to try it and then figure out what you did wrong. If you
screw it up the first time and it's still enough fun to try it again then you're hooked ;-)

"Slurry to stiff texture" sounds like you didn't add enough water. At the typical
1.2-1.5quart/pound the grain should be floating, not stiff like porridge. A stuck sparge is due
to particles plugging ...
Posted in thread: marbles for dry hopping? on 11-19-2013 at 09:48 PM
FYI: when you put the marbles in the bag, put them in a separate bag. Put the marbles in a bag

hops and ...
Posted in thread: Adding Honey to the Boil to Raise ABV? on 11-19-2013 at 09:45 PM

You'll end up a little low on your IBUs because your bittering hops weren't in as long as
expected. And if it was all grain you'll end up a little diluted on your OG. But there's no
increased risk of ...
Posted in thread: What size pot for a 15 gal. Batch? on 11-19-2013 at 05:38 PM
I use my 1/2BBL keggle for both 5.5 and 11g batches (I always give myself 1/2g for trub loss in
the keggle and racking from primary to secondary to keg).As Brew_NY said, you have to watch at
Posted in thread: What's your cost of a 5 gallon batch? on 11-11-2013 at 05:55 PM
Do you want to know what the ingredients cost or what I spend on a typical trip to the LBHS?
Those are far different ;-)I use mostly homegrown hops so my house IIPA is about $28 for 6
gallons. I consi...
