Cool, I'd heard to stay away from fermenting too warm, as I'd end up with a banana bread
tasting beer. I suppose if you plan around any flavor you can make something good out of it.
Generally how do y...

I'm going to assume its an extract batch with some specialty grains... In which case you can
put them in a large ziplock and crush them with a rolling pin. I've done that in the past with

It could work, but I think it would be really hard to get consistent carbonation that way. What
type of vessel are you fermenting in?
Posted in thread: Spontaneous fermentation in a sample I pulled on 08-05-2014 at 05:59 PM
On Saturday night I brewed up a batch, and when I was transferring to my carboy, I grabbed a

Oxygen is the first thing the yeast consume, but as others have said, trying to save this might

the low ...

Yeah, unless you really overshot your volume, you're starting gravity should be spot on, since
you're using extract. A final volume of 5 gallons would result in 1.080.One of my worries is
that you und...

The flavor should fade over time... But from what I understand, it's the yeast cleaning up
after itself which converts it back to ethanol, so longer in the primary is probably the
fastest way. Obvious...
