    Just went back and read the old posts. Didn't realize the high alcohol issue was already
    covered. Feel free to disregard.

    I've noticed several people with priming problems here. Is it possibly because the whiskey is
    killing off the yeast?What about adding a tiny pinch of new yeast to the bottles like they do
    for soda? To...

    I had been trying to figure out what to do with my 1 gallon carboy, as it has been empty for
    some time. I like to do specialty stuff in there, thinking that if I screw it up - it's only
    one gallon.Any...

    But the OG on that beer was approx 1.100, and the yeast went insane (LOTS of blowoff despite 2
    gallons of headspace). Wow. I bet that looked like a full boil.

    So if I cooled the wort to between 65-68, and then I put it in a basement with ambient temps of
    around the same - I could let her sit there for about 2 or 3 days, and then I'd be ok moving it
    into a r...

    That could be one of my problems. I tend to cool to about 75-80 and pitch the yeast. I
    immediately put it in a room that is around 65-68, which is what I was considering my starting
    temp, but I didn't...

    What kind of starters did you two use?

  • Posted in thread: worst beer you ever made on 05-15-2012 at 03:20 AM
    One of the first batches I made. It was a belgian style blonde ale, and I fermented it way too
    cold. I also bottled it way too early. The combination basically left me with a diacetyl laden,
    thick, su...

    So I posted a while back about my frustrations with my second attempt at a dubbel. I drank the
    first one after a month in the bottles and it actually wasn't bad. Definitely a good, very
    drinkable beer...

    I'm only 23 (I promise that's not meant to sound like bragging), so I tend to only get
    hangovers if I put away a case - BUT I do have an absolute miracle suggestion.The night before
    you go to sleep, d...
