    I had a plan ....My plan was to bottle my batch of stout, then start a batch of Hefewiezen
    (Austin Homebrew kit) in the soon to be vacated fermenter. I got the White labs pitchable tube
    out of the fri...

    I had heard that at some point plastic buckets and tubes start harboring bacteria and always
    impart off-flavors so they need to be replaced. Has anyone had experience with this, and how
    often do you f...

    Are all Pyrex Ehrlenmeyer flasks made of Borosilicate glass? I purchased a 1000ml flask to make
    a yeast starter and would like to use it directly on my gas stove to boil the DME needed to
    make a mini-...

    Tasted Great! I sipped the hydrometer sample, then decided not cap the last bottle (only 3/4
    full) and drank that. Full of hoppy flavor.... little flat though with a few sharp notes. :)

    I just bottled my third batch two days ago, and today I noticed that there appears to be
    Krausen forming in the bottles? FG was 1.16, according to the Kit it should have been 1.14,
    hadn't moved in a d...

    It is ok to leave a starter yeast sitting for 3 days? I know that most people pitch the yeast
    starter after 2 days but would it be ok to sit for one more day?Perfect, put it in the fridge
    to settle th...

    No help here, but curious why you didn't become a pod-person and go with the ubiquitous
    apfelwein stuff? I don't know if I'm gonna like the stuff judging by the end of 1 week smell,
    but heck, it was m...
