Hey, I'm in need of some quick advice. Tonight is bottling night, and everything was going as
planed. Bottles were ready, priming sugar had been added, etc. It just came time to bottle, and
I have sea...

Alright, thanks for the help guys. I actually found one of my old brewing books that listed
cane sugar as an alternative. It listed corn sugar at 4oz, and cane at 3.7oz. Therefore, I
calculated that i...

Alright, it's bottling night, and it appears that I completely forgot about the dextrose. My
recipe calls for 4.5oz of dextrose/corn sugar, and I only have 3oz. What can I substitute for

think I've got a fairly final recipe down.1 tsp Gypsum8.00 lbs Dark Malt Extract (Dry)2.00 lbs

tell me what needs to be revised in the Imperial Soutish recipe? Im not sure if that's to much

Sorry, once again, I made an error. I meant a teaspoon of Gypsum. As for adding Gypsum to the
recipe in general, (1 tsp), it is actually in the recipe I got from a local homebrew shop for
the IPA. I'v...

I've always needed two weeks minimum in the bottles. My first summer ale was good for a first
beer, but not great. I had one again a few days ago and it was much better.
