    Ok thanks for that. I didn't get any detailed instructions for my hydrometer in my starters
    kit. I'm learning off YouTube and from you good gentlemen :). The instructions with the beer
    kit ( milestone...

    God sorry what's wrong with me! I'm adding an extra 0. I've probably confused everyone
    including my self now :).Ok OG = 1.042 FG = 1.012Reading 4 weeks after Finings and 80g spray
    malt added = 1.009Th...

    Sorry my mistake, I'm still pretty new to this.The instructions said the final gravity should
    be 1.0009. I took 2 readings over a period of 3 days and they were both consistently 1.0012. I
    assumed the...

    This is for all my New Years visitors so hopefully someone's going to say " yea your final
    reading is the beers alcohol content" ;0)

    For the record my avb was 3.98% but after 4 weeks in the barrel it's almost 4.5% which is what
    the kit says it should be

    I've just done my 3rd batch of ale and prior to my other posts where I've said it's never as
    strong as it says on the box I've done a reading 4 weeks after secondary fermentation( after my
    Finings had...

    Yea I read that and its completely different to the instructions on the beer pack I bought. It
    says to boil the malt extract and water but the beer kit say just to add it to the fermenting
    bucket and ...

    Yea thats right its for the pressure barrel. Maybe I got a different kind of homebrew kit than
    most folk on here?. What do you do?, keep it in the fermenting bucket?. Wouldn't it go flat or
    contaminat...

    quite a large...
