    My basement is really cold. "around 12 degrees celcius" so this is why I used the brew belt to
    hold a steady fermentation temp. I've used it in the past with no problem but this is my first
    attempt at...

    I still want to know what the OP did for temperature control during fermentation, and what
    temperature the beer fermented at.I used a brew belt for 3 days to keep a steady temperature of
    26 degrees. A...

    Hello.My brother inlaw and I just attempted to brew an IIPA but I think there might be a couple
    problems here.. It was an expensive all-grain batch so I'm hoping there's a way to save
    it.Problem one -...

    I ended up using 1/2 cascade and 1/2 citra at flame out and I will do the same for dry hopping.
    Now I'm debating if I should just toss the hops lose in the secondary or put them in a bag.I
    sampled the...

    Thanks for the input.My LBS has a very crappy selection when it comes to Bittering Hops. They
    mostly stock noble hops and the more mellow stuff.. I'm making an IIPA here and now you guys
    got me worrie...

    I would really love to but these 2 are the only options at the moment. Perhaps I should use the
    Galena as the Bittering and add the Citra during flame out or dry hop?Try warrior or magnum if

    Good day!I'm about to brew a batch of IIPA tomorrow and my LBS didn't have either Chinook or
    Columbus in stock so I bought 2 potential substitutes.Galena and Citra have similar alpha acids
    and both cl...

    Good day,I'm about to brew a big IIPA this weekend and I was wondering what the best method is
    for pellet hop addition to the boiling wort. I've heard people use muslin bags, others use a
    suspended mu...

    Thank you!Is there a rule for the temperature of the sparge water?The recipe I'm doing only
    states that it's a 5 gallon batch. Boil volume is 7gallons and to mash at 153 for 90min. I
    punched in the nu...

    Good day.I'm somewhat new at all grain brewing and am puzzled when reading recipes.Some recipes
    say for a 5 gal batch you'll have a 7 gallon boil size.But.. the single mash I'm using might
    only genera...
