    Sounds like it could turn out like a Abita style beer but they are lightly hoped.

    Over carbed. And all beer has a "yeast infection" we add it on purpose to make alcohol. If it
    tastes fine it's probably not infected with unwanted bacteria.

    It seems to me that pin locks are cheaper and easier to find. If I didn't already have ball
    locks I would switch. Also my advice is to do set it and forget it method of carbing instead of
    shaking or s...

    I have one of those cheap dome perforated false bottoms meant for a cooler that I have drilled
    out to accept 1/2 inch fittings. A better mash tun is on the wish list but it works for now
    with some ric...

    I have to use a half pound of hulls otherwise the grains get so compacted from recirculating I
    don't get enough flow through the false bottom.

    Good to hear that someone else has to use rice hulls and not just me. I modeled mine after Kal,
    just need another pump and it will be completed. Right now I have to put the boiler on the
    ground but it...

    My milk stouts always stabilize around 1.020. There are a lot of unfermentable sugars in there
    and I don't think you will ever get down to 1.010. Leave it alone at this point and check it
    again on day...

    Darker beers like porters can benefit from some extra time in the fermenter but that depends on
    your own tastes. If it's stable bottle it and save some to taste a couple months down the road
    to see if...

  • Posted in thread: Belgian Wit Beer Fermentation Question on 04-18-2014 at 04:25 PM
    Star San is a must in my brew cave but I use vodka in my airlocks. If you are going to bottle
    make sure it is done fermenting before with a hydrometer to avoid bottle bombs. I like my wits
    young so I ...

  • Posted in thread: How do I know if my beer got infected? on 04-18-2014 at 04:14 PM
    While good sanitation is paramount in making great beer I have found that as long as you pitch
    a large healthy yeast colony little oops moments don't always end in tragedy. I think we all
    have had a b...
