Posted in thread: Dying Kegged Beer Green on 03-08-2007 at 11:18 PM
So I'm trying to figure out how to dye my beer green for St. Patrick's Day this year. I know
this is a homebrew forum, but I'll be using my buddy's favorite commercial lager and I hope you
guys can of...

I would definitely begin with an easy malt extract kit. You can probably get a good one from a
local homebrew shop. I started with an easy English Ale and things are coming along nicely.
Remember to s...

Ah... It all makes so much sense now. Thanks guys. I ask this question because I racked over to
a secondary a few days ago. It fermented for a week, then bubbles slowed way down. I took a

So I have a question about fermenting in the primary. I don't really understand why you have to

I'll be transfering to a secondary pretty soon too. I'm also using 6.5 gallon buckets and have

ok... so I'm an idiot. I got home today and checked the beer after 20 hours and still noticed
no bubbles. Then I took a temperature reading- 63 degrees. A little cold. So I put it in a warm
bath to wa...

I'm still waiting on bubbles in my airlock. It's been about 20 hours and no activity. I used a
yeast starter to get a good amount of yeast in the fermenter, but to no avail. Also, there has
been a thi...

The kit I was referring to was an all extract kit. However, my next beer, an American Amber
does have some grains. Maybe another advantage to a full boil might be that you don't have to
worry about ke...

So I'm getting mixed advice here. Next time should I boil all 5 gallons with the extract, or
