Has the "FG" been steady over multiple days? If so, OK to bottle, if not, let it ferment
longer.Not so,If the yeast has reached its attenuation then it's not going any further. That
doesn't mean there...

It will be sweet... Try a stronger yeast strain t bring it down before you bottle. But it
depends on the fermentables of course, but it since it is a kit I would think you have
fermentables left. Get ...

I have 5 bottles from the first batch stored in these bottles for a month now without problem,

Posted in thread: Pitched yeast too cold? on 02-17-2013 at 09:49 AM
I'd much rather pitch it on the warm side. That's me. 50-60 is way too cold to pitch imo. I'd

You cannot/should not cap screw off bottles. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Sam

The best thing you can do actually, if find out how how much carbonation you want then boil
that amount of sugar in some water. Then either pur that sugar water into your main fermenter

sugar you p...
