Posted in thread: Why has my fermentation been stopping at 1.020? on 11-02-2012 at 09:47 AM
This happened to me recently as well. I do mostly partial mash brews and I got some LME from a
different supplier that only fermented down to around 1.020, on two seperate occasions. I found
out from ...

How long has it been in primary? As soon as you're within a couple points of your target FG,
you could rack it. In fact, you could just dry hop in the primary, and then bottle. Either way,
I would def...

Has anyone seen a published water profile from any of the extract makers? I'd be kinda curious
to know what baseline we're working with.

1 lb of DME in 2 gallons of water is about 1.023 boil gravity. There's a lot of argument over
whether or not DME/LME needs to be boiled at all. The all-grain process requires full volume
boils for sev...

what was your boil volume?

Update:According to 2 different sites that calculate IBU's, the relationship between hop
utilization and total volume is a linear one. That is the total IBUs in a 1 gallon batch are 5x
higher than in ...

Unhopped extract. I know that specific gravity affects hop utilization, i.e. in a concentrated
boil. But that's not what I'm talking about. I don't see how the overall scale of the boil
would affect h...

So what's the least amount of boil volume anyone has used, and how did it work out? When using
extract, it seems like the only practical reason to boil at all is to extract hop bitterness,
and of cour...

Make friends with one of the thousands of GIs in the area and ask if you can have stuff shipped
to their APO box from the states. You can get all the creature comforts you want for postage to

Around 08-09 I was ordering from Morebeer and shipping to my APO in Korea, and I remember not
having to pay for shipping at all when I ordered over a certain amount. I think that's because
if they shi...
