  • Posted in thread: Need some help ASAP... Fermentation gone crazy on 08-27-2014 at 09:48 PM
    I wouldn't call myself a new brewer, but I have never run into this issue before. The porter I
    made yesterday blew the airlock out - not a first occurrence. I threw on a blow off tube, but
    it blew tha...

    Woah woah woah, all these people saying your process is "OK" are crazy. You need to take that
    shot of Maker's before starting any of the brew day. I also didn't see anything about you
    drinking beers d...

    Step one: Hit your caps lock. I feel like you're yelling, and there's nothing to yell about!
    :)First of all, how are you washing your glasses? Not the ones that go on your face, but the
    ones you put y...

    I'd like to start experimenting with aging some of beers on oak, and had some questions:1. Is
    there anything special that needs to be done to raw oak pieces before using? My dad is felling
    an old oak ...

  • Posted in thread: Quick Sweet 'n' Still Cider Question on 07-10-2013 at 04:14 PM
    Lucky,The only way to kill the yeast is thru pasteurization or alcohol toxicity. The most
    common method to stabilize a batch and sweeten it up is:Allow batch to ferment to its ultimate
    low SG. Since m...

    Howdy,I have 2 gallons of cider fermenting away at the moment, a la EdWort's recipe that we
    love so much. In the past, I've let it dry all the way out, then bottle condition with dextrose
    (about 4 oz ...

    No, I meant a total of 3+5+3, added onto your estimate of just the DME in 5 gallons. As in "an
    additional 11 points" to your 1.052. So, 1.052 (your estimate with just the DME), plus 11
    points total fr...

    DME generally has 44 ppg or so, while the oats should give you a little (about 3 pts in 5
    gallons) and the wheat will give you a little (about 5 pts), and of course the caramel malt
    gives you some as ...

    Float your hydrometer is 60 degree water (distilled if possible). It should read 1.000. If not,
    your hydrometer is off.Mashing a pound of wheat will give you some fermentables, but more like
    .009 poin...
