    Thanks for the suggestions Jwood. I appreciate it. I'm going to first take a bottle to another
    LHBS, where I've heard the owner is incredibly knowledgeable and can solve anything. If he
    can't pinpoint...

    Have you checked the gravity along the way? Three weeks should be fine, but you can never be
    too safe. This summer, I bottled a Belgian wit after only two and a half weeks in the primary,
    and experien...

  • Posted in thread: Is my Apfelwein still good? on 12-02-2011 at 08:22 PM
    Apfelwein has become my go-to drink. I almost, um, like it more than my beer. I've only made
    two batches so far, with one batch still in the primary for about a month now, but it really is
    delicious. ...

    I am extremely new to brewing, but in the wine industry band-aid on the palate and in the
    finish of a wine is usually associated with a brettanomyces infection.I hope I'm describing the
    off flavor acc...

    I'd suggest you make small batches until you figure out what's up. Maybe 1 gallon at a time?I'd
    also bleach-bomb and/or boil everything to sanitize/sterilize as best you can.Above all,
    though, hang in...

    Never mind, I looked it up for you. You have a lower amount of chlorine in your water there in
    north providence, but it can still cause problems. Especially since it is allowed to fluctuate
    within a c...

    Post your local water report, you could be tasting chlorophenols. There could have been an
    adjustment to your water supply, without you seeing the notice.Not bragging at all, but I've
    read that Rhode ...

    Oh yea, and after really analyzing my process, my next guess is the auto siphon. As I
    mentioned, I don't recall this taste when checking gravity readings and kegging/bottling. I'm
    wondering if, months...

    Hello,I've been brewing a little less than a year now. I've made a little less than 10 batches,
    but a good portion of them have been great. Lately, though, my last three batches have had the
    same off ...

  • Posted in thread: First bottling tonight - any last minute advice/tips on 11-15-2011 at 06:55 PM
    When I bottle, I set the bottling bucket on the counter over the dish washer with the door
    open, so any drips I don't have to worry about. I just close and the next wash cleans it
    up.Same here.
