This is an awesome idea to try that I'd never even thought about! Thanks! Sorry, I must have
fat fingered something...8.6% is much more accurate (not sure how I got 11.5). One thing I'd
try, turn the ...

I wish I had written more numbers down in January, but I apparently didn't and thought I would
remember them later. :(I know I mashed at 152 and it stayed there for about an hour and a half.
By my cal...

Hey all, I brewed a Russian Imperial Stout in November. I used a couple of recipes that had
good ratings as guidelines in formulating my own recipe. It started with a gravity of 1.098 and

I've got a stir starter myself. I believe it ran $40. I'd seen in a youtube video a guy using a
stir starter. It's much less expensive than a brand name stir plate, that's for sure!! was

So, I brewed a Russian Imperial Stout on November 21st, 2015 that has been sitting in the
secondary for 5-6 weeks. I've been kegging this past year, but this one I plan to bottle since
this batch will...

I would take a reading with a hydrometer or run your refractometer readings through a

understand, the final gra...

I'm really starting to think this is more normal now. Here's what it looks like this morning.

I'm guessing this was an extract batch, not an all-grain batch? If you're using a
refractometer, the final gravity reading is skewed by alcohol, so you have to use a
refractometer calculator to come t...

I haven't been taking ph. I'm still using bottled water for brew days, but I'm looking to start
using city water. The water at our old apartments never tasted good, so I didn't want to use
it, but in ...
