  • Posted in thread: oxidized beer with plastic fermenters? on 02-03-2008 at 06:46 AM
    I read that plastic fermenters let air in after a period of time. My lager is still fermenting
    after about 2 weeks and still has about 10 hydrometer points to go and I'm starting to worry
    about the be...

  • Posted in thread: Stuck fermentation? what to do? on 02-01-2008 at 03:01 AM
    I'm brewing a lager at about 50F (10C). My OG was 1.050 and its been about 11 days since it
    started fermenting and its been stuck on 1.023 for like 3 days now. I'm assuming its stuck.
    what should I do...

  • Posted in thread: Pitched yeast at too high temp? on 01-22-2008 at 01:15 AM
    I've just started brewing a lager with saflager S-23 yeast. I've set the fridge to ferment it
    at 50F (10C) but I realised I pitched the yeast at 90F (32C)! The fridge will take a while to
    cool it down...

    I just tasted my japanese lager after 2 weeks in the bottle and I seriously cant drink it. It
    tastes like paint thinner or vodka or something. It's only 7% alcohol. It wouldnt make it taste
    that bad w...

    If it was a little warmer than proper lager temperatures then you'd have a steam beer or
    california common beer. On the cold side though, it depends how cold. Most lager yeasts can go
    down to about 8 ...

  • Posted in thread: How long for dry hop? on 10-13-2006 at 06:49 AM
    Just racked my lager to secondary before and chucked in some hops with it. Then I had a
    thought. Is it bad if I leave the hops in there for too long? The hops aren't in a bag so I
    cant get them out an...

    The powder is difficult to use for small batches of wine or beer. This is because it inhibits
    the action of all yeasts; wine yeasts are just more resistant than other microorganisms. If too
    much potas...

    And the bubbling every 20 seconds is normal. Because of the cold temperatures it's still going
    to ferment but REALLY slow. The kraeusen takes a few days to form aswell. So there's nothing to
    worry abo...

    I'm just trying to let off a bit of steam here.I am lagering my Dutch Premium and my bottles
    are stored in the freezer (I have a fridge/freezer combo with the fermenter in the fridge and

  • Posted in thread: Priming on 09-20-2006 at 11:07 PM
    Does priming with sugar add much more alcohol to the beer. My lager at the moment is up to 7.2%
    and I think that's all I want for now. I don't really want it to go higher. I'm worried that
    priming the...
