    Good to know. I was hoping all was fine. Thanks!

    Hi I need some advice with the progress on my first attempt brewing/making a scoby. I used some
    directions that called for a starter with some black tea, plain white sugar, and the bottom
    half of a GT...

    I think longer is always better as long as no chance of contamination.That's another thing I
    was worried about taking the lid on and off to sample. I've been trying to wait a couple days
    in between ea...

    Kits tend to cut as many corners as possible in my experience - one of mine suggested bottling
    7 days after fermentation begins. Youre better off taking a little time with it and doing
    things right - ...

    When you say lifting lid I assume it's in a bucket?? Be careful letting out the co2 and letting
    in "bad" air.Yeah it's in a bucket and I was a little worried about that. I left the lid off
    once for a ...

    Thanks. The recipe with the kit had the whole primary/secondary process completed in about
    10-11 days, but I know things can vary. I'll give it more time and keep lifting the lid looking
    for the ferme...

    My weizen has been in the primary for 12 days now and it looks like I have hit my FG of
    1.011-1.013. Looking at the surface of the brew I still see some bubbling action, which I
    assume means fermentat...

    Haven't found it yet, nor do I want to. I'm having too much fun looking. :mug:

    You just took your first blast of CO2 to the face. It's a homebrew rite of passage.
    :mug:Excellent. :ban:Thanks!

    Doing my 1st batch (a weizen) and it's been in the primary 1 week now. Just took a reading and
    it looks to be at about 1.014 and still fairly active fermentation visible with the lid off.
    Noticed some...
