I'd hold off on the syrup and add during fermentation. 8#s of simple sugar from the start is

Ahh good news. Bottled up my 2014 batch. Finished at 1.018-1.019 (using a $6 hydrometer, so
that's as close as I can eyeball), but I had a little over 5 gal in my bottling bucket, so I
had about 5.25g...

Trying this one again. I think I'll do it every spring.The 2013 batch did not carb, so I will

Drank a 22oz bomber of HeBrew's 17th anniversary ale a little too quick 'cause it tasted soo
good. 17malts, 17hops, 17%AbV. homework didn't get done that night.
Posted in thread: Used whirlfloc with disasterous results. on 11-24-2013 at 01:47 AM
Ok, so it sounds like it'll settle in the fermenter and not the kettle. I thought it'd settle

later, but m...
