    For the curious people, the beer turned out great. No signs of wild yeasts and the beer tastes
    great. It is a light beer (Color), not a large head, in fact the head is less than expected but
    the taste...

    Thank you for your replies. I believe that waiting a another week is the correct direction at
    this time. You know when we start a batch we hate to give up on it and waiting a week is
    nothing. Maybe in...

    line on the hygrometer.Yes it is a kit from Brewmasters Select. The instructions put the

    All,I still consider myself new to the hobby and have had some issues on our last two batches.
    Let me start with this batches question or thoughts. I cooked the wart like one normally would
    and paid s...

    For those that helped by answering my earlier question. Here is the latest update. The gravity
    has dropped to 1.010 (finally) and the air lock has reduced CO emissions to one bubble per 30
    seconds. It...

    The tricky part of using the hydrometer is when you spin it, it tends to bob up and down. Once
    it stops bobbing up and down, it also stops spinning and the bubbles attack :-)I guess it is a
    wait and s...

    Maybe this is strange but the hydrometer has not changed at all. Seven days from the start of
    fermentation and the reading is 1.042 @ 63F. The instructions suggest this will continue for up
    to 16 days...

    OK, got it. I am having fun, the kit came with 2 buckets and 1 carboy. What the heck is the
