    So, I think I'm ready to bottle this beauty, but I have a few more questions first. My OG was
    1.070 on 3/3/13, on 3/25/13 SG was 1.020, and I racked to secondary. Soaked 2.5 oz Whiskey
    Barrel Chips (f...

    Thanks for the advice. The instructions do call for a long secondary, 3-4 weeks. I like the
    idea of soaking the chips in bourbon and adding them and some of the bourbon to the secondary.
    I'm really lo...

    I have a Brewers Best Whisky Barrel Stout kit that I will be brewing soon. It came with whisky
    barrel oak chips and the instructions say to add them to the secondary. I was thinking about
    soaking the ...

    You might want to check the gravity, to make sure it's done. If you move it off the yeast too
    soon, it may not finish.Cheers!Good point. I was planning on doing this, but didn't mention it
    in my post.

    My Pumpkin Ale has been in primary for almost a week now, and I plan on moving it to a
    secondary for another week or two. I have never used a secondary before and I was just
    wondering if there was any...

    When I got home from work today there was foam coming out of the airlock. I wasn't really
    concerned until I heard a pop. The airlock blew off and I had a huge mess. Luckily the carboy
    was in a plastic...

    The wort was hot when I pitched the yeast (79F). I suppose it may have been hotter than that
    and my thermometer wasn't accurate. I was using a meat thermometer, cleaned and sanitized of
    course. Is the...

    We have fermentation! I pitched a second packet of Nottingham last night and this morning there
    was a nice laver of foam on top and the bubbler was doing its thing. Is it possible that the
    yeast from ...

    I checked the SG and no change since I pitched the yeast. Sitting at 1.060. Should I pitch more
    yeast?

    I am confident that I did add the yeast. I sprinkles it on top and stirred the wort Is stirring
    an except able method of aerating?
