Your beer needs more time and higher temperature if you expect to get carbonation from it. 66
degrees just isn't going to cut it. Try 72 to 75 for a couple weeks or more.Now where do I find
that in Mi...

It might just need more time. High gravity beers can really take a while to carb up and even
longer I'd assume at mid 60s. I find it hard to believe that you can tast the corn sugar in an
11.5% 1.040 ...

Yes, I have done a search on this and I haven't found anyone with the same issue. (got that out

have the y...

By all means, if we want to dove tail into hops and their contribution to head retention go

Sure, it's just becoming more of a Cascadian Dark Ale/American Dark Ale/Black IPA than it is a
RIS.How would hop bursting my RIS change it to dark ale / black IPA? I am still sitting right
in the IBU ...

Thanks, I think I might try it out then, see what happens. I will probably not get much of it
as it will sit secondary for quite a while but it may be really interesting at first.

Planning on doing a RIS this weekend and was wondering if anyone has ever tried hop bursting
any other beers than IPAs / PAs and had much success. I am going to use Columbus, Cluster, and

I do use the final volume of beer and correct for temp. I probably should be weighing my
priming sugar but I have not as of yet. I haven't had off carbonation in the past (about 15
batches now) so I w...

wow this blew up...I put .6 cups of priming sugar (corn sugar) in 5 gallons of beer. The
retention is super high on this and I was expecting that because of the grains. I will pop one
of these when I ...

I don't believe it is my pouring, I am pretty careful and the four other beers I have bottled
currently don't have this problem. It does not seem to bubble excessively when I open the
