    Thanks Revvy, I hope that is the case. Trying to lose the newbitus!

    This is my first temperature controlled batch. I actually smelled the odor while preparing to
    transfer into secondary - a few minutes after I popped the carboy cap off to take a gravity
    reading. In te...

    Gravity is not dropping, so I guess that is a good thing.No noticeable taste of apples at this
    time, but none of the others tasted or smelled like apples until I started opening bottles. I
    have about ...

    This is my second post on this topic and apologies in advance for my noob-paranoia.In all but
    my second brew, I have had acetaldehyde issues. Since I wasn't controlling fermentation
    temperature I assu...

    Standard 3/4 cup of priming sugar for 5 gallons. None of the bottles we opened have been
    chilled and only 2 were gushers, but neither of the 2 gushers had the acetaldehyde taste.I am
    switching to Star...

    OK...to update everyone. A buddy who I brew with has half the batch. We opened two bottles from
    the same batch and NO acetaldehyde taste...but they were gushers.He was storing the bottles at
    a cooler ...

    Right now final gravity is 1.018 from 1.079 with the 2 vials. I pitched a second vial b/c I did
    not have time to make a yeast starter.Everyone seems to say that homebrewers chronically under
    pitch, so...

    Definitely not band aids, it is all fruity/candy sweetness, all the time. I guess that would be
    a good thing if it is what I wanted. I am currently into brewing 2.5 gallon batches (b/c it is
    just easi...

    Nova-I live in NYC...it is quite humid, especially during the summer. I cannot turn the heat
    down to the 50's, nor can I get it that cool in the summer.If a swamp cooler won't work am I
    just not suppo...

    I am currently brewing a 2.5 gallon batch of IPA. It was pitched at 68 with 2 vials of
    WL001.When I took a gravity reading last week (1.020 from 1.079) the ambient room temp was 61,
    which I'm hoping i...
