Posted in thread: What's next? Goodbye IPA, hello.... on 03-06-2014 at 04:47 PM
I'm betting, much like a homebrewer's path. IPA's will get old after awhile and the malt will
return. ESB's, Browns. That being said, IPA's are probably here for the long haul overall. It's
Posted in thread: Homebrew ROI? on 03-05-2014 at 02:08 PM
Love this hobby, but the idea that I'm going to break even is pretty slim. It can be done, you
can "save" money. But if you goal is to make the best beer possible- it's unlikely your going
to save mon...
Posted in thread: How old were you when you began this journey? on 03-03-2014 at 09:11 PM
Started when I was in charge of putting priming sugar in bottles when I was like 10. However,

on the reci...

Couple of things. Make sure your probe is taped or insulated to your fermentation container.
You should also look into the manual. Your really shouldn't be swinging that much. You should
be able to se...
Posted in thread: Yeast inactive after transferring to secondary on 02-24-2014 at 02:10 PM
Unfortunately transfering the beer into secondary after only nine days was not a great idea.
You can try and add more yeast, but I would suggest making a starter and get the yeast going
real good befo...
Posted in thread: Reusing White Labs vials. on 02-21-2014 at 05:03 PM
Someone just recently recommended I use a white labs vial to test for "too much CO2" in my
homemade wine. Take a sample of wine, cap, shake....if there is a hiss- too much CO2. Going to
try this soon.

1.012 for an extract stout is probably pretty good. You might be done. Bubbles are not the most
accurate form of fermentation (gravity readings are), if you had even a small leak in your
bucket it can...

with a blow off tube you can go 4.5-5 gallons. Just don't ferment too hot.
