    This old thread just saved me. Making a an apple ale, and I've never had a beer coming out of a
    bucket's airlock. Used the siphon hose as blow off tube and am all set now. Thank you!

    You don't need to let the bottles dry before filling. You should be using a sanitizer rather
    than a cleaner, though.LD Carlson is a no rinse cleaner so you shouldn't have any problems from
    using it, b...

    Well, I went ahead and did the deed. I used the Carlson's and didn't rinse with water. (Man, I
    made a mess; when I started the siphon into the bottling bucket I sprayed my wife with beer.)
    Anyway, I'm...

    OKay. I'm bottling today -- and this is my 4th batch -- but I never know what way to go on the
    following:1. Should I just use the LD Carlson's and then bottle right away or should I let the
    bottles ai...

    No damage at all. Just don't slosh any oxygen into the beer. The only time you'd want to avoid
    disturbing the beer is after waiting weeks for the beer to settle and clarify.Oh yeah...you are
    no where ...

    If it's at fg, it's good to move. You can go ahead and put it in secondary. :mug:Thanks. I
    moved it into my secondary, and it was pretty clean -- with the exception of a few berry pieces
    getting sucke...

    I'm working on a raspberry ale. I used frozen berries and sanitized them in the wort after
    boiling (I used two 10 oz packages of frozen berries), and then I did the primary fermentation
    in a bucket (w...

  • Posted in thread: 1st time - Primary Fermentation Question on 05-29-2007 at 04:32 AM
    I just got up the guts to open the bucket (which I hope didn't disturb it too much). The
    krausen is still on top, so I take it that -- given the krausen hasn't dropped -- it's not done
    fermenting - ri...

  • Posted in thread: 1st time - Primary Fermentation Question on 05-29-2007 at 04:04 AM
    okay. So I have a similar question. I'm doing an ale as well. Primary is in a 5 gallon bucket
    with airtight top and airlock. It's been 8 days, and now bubbles are only coming at a rate of
    every minute...

  • Posted in thread: Brewing with Honey on 12-01-2006 at 08:00 PM
    i just bottled a holiday brew with about a pound of honey, and you should also know that it
    slows down the fermentation process by two-three weeks. i thought i was going to go insane
    watching bubbles ...
