    Im not a scientist, but my personal experience would differ from that.A long time ago when I
    started out with brewing, I used my aluminum brew pot to sanitize equipment in it. It was
    oxidized from use...

    I wouldn't use Star San on it either.The dilute phosphoric acid in properly mixed StarSan
    shouldn't be an issue for Al₂O₃ (The oxide layer you see on your pot). I wouldn't
    think that oxycl...

    Following up, the gravities measured by hydrometer for each are as follows:Ginger Ale,
    FG=1.009, Attenuation=77.5%Porter, FG=1.015, Attenuation=74.5%Looks like I was doing great all
    along. Thank you g...

    I assume you are correcting your FG values if you're taking them with the refractometer. You
    can't really use a refractometer to measure FG due to the alcohol interfering. Even correction
    methods can ...

    I am measuring with a refractometer. I have a hydrometer but really don't have a great way to
    pull samples of that size, though it is worth giving a shot just to see how well they correlate
    with my re...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will be making a starter for another batch being brewed this
    weekend. I will grab some of the yeast from that and give both of these "stuck" batches a
    forced fermentation ...

    I just started doing AG on my own, brewed a few batches with friends over the years but I've
    finally made the plunge and I am stuck with poor attenuation rates. In regards to the
    suggestions on this f...

  • Posted in thread: Will my beer still age in a keg? on 06-22-2013 at 05:16 PM
    I am not a beer expert by any stretch. But only X amount of CO2 can be dissolved in a given
    amount of liquid at a given temperature and pressure. After 3 weeks at 11 psi and 40 deg that
    should have ha...

    I'm surprised that grows so well in Joliet! I might have to plant some over here in Shorewood.
