    @cmybeer, nope, it's tonight. Definitely a lack of planning/preparation, but I'm getting some
    interesting pictures, I think.At this moment, I'm boiling wort, I've added the first round of
    hops, the se...

    Update: Now with pictures and follow-up. :)So, tonight was going to be the night that I started
    my first all-grain beer. A couple weeks back, I ordered up everything for MysticMeads Raging
    Red (www.ho...

    Well, I did some reading, and it looks like I've probably got a Brett. Not previously familiar
    with such a strain, but it doesn't seem to have negatively impacted the taste.I mixed it with
    about half ...

    Well, it's time for bottling...I drew a cup, and drank it, a bit hesitantly. It tastes
    substantially better than it did after my first round of tasting. It's actually something I
    wouldn't mind drinkin...

    No votes for poison? Apparently my wife doesn't have an account ;)I was pretty sure nothing
    significantly bad could happen, but my wife is convinced otherwise, so I thought taking a poll
    would be a go...

    About 4 months ago, I poured 23 litres of apple juice into a bucket, added some yeast (it was a
    wine yeast, I forget which one), and put the lid on. My mother-in-law works at a juice
    processing plant,...

    Well, it seems like everything worked out just fine. I ended up leaving them open for about 20
    minutes at the time of the original posting, which was either enough, or unnecessary, as they
    all seem to...

    How are you going to tell if there is more fermentable sugar left. What you discribed sounds
    reasonably normal for a 9 day bottled beer. If you are concerned you could put the in a rubbish
    bag in a (c...

    Ok, I have a plan. I poured some into a hydrometer tube, and I will cap the rest and leave it
    overnight. In the morning it should be flat, and I should be able to confirm if there's much
    more sugar to...

    So, after having less than ideal carbonation on previous batches, I'm now having the opposite
    problem. I scraped the bottom of the fermenter about a week before bottling, and I also added a
    couple ext...
