Posted in thread: How long for fermentation? on 12-10-2015 at 04:53 PM
I would wait until fermentation is done (krausen dissipates, yeast is flocculating, beer is
clearing) then dry hop. I always dry hop in the primary and I almost never transfer to a
secondary at all. T...

Posted in thread: Why Do Dark Beers Take Longer to Carbonate? on 11-24-2015 at 08:26 PM
Did you cold crash this before bottling and use the cold crash temperature for the calculator?
For the temperature input you should use the highest temperature the beer reached during
fermentation or ...
Posted in thread: Why Do Dark Beers Take Longer to Carbonate? on 11-24-2015 at 08:11 PM
Yeah if that was a 5 gallon batch you probably won't get much carbonation with that amount of
sugar. Like less than 1.5 volumes I'm guessing. I always go by weight in which case you should
be adding a...
Posted in thread: Tons of Foam on 11-24-2015 at 04:34 PM
If it's coming out as all foam, you wouldn't be able to tell if it's overcarbed when you drink
it because all of the extra CO2 would have come out already. How exactly do you force carb? Let
it sit fo...

What was your carbonation procedure? Sounds like it's overcarbed. Also, I agree that 3 ft lines
are too short. I have 10 ft lines and I would recommend that length as a minimum.
Posted in thread: Max time before pitching on 11-24-2015 at 04:17 PM
I know this is moot because you've already pitched, but just for future reference and anyone
who reads this thread in the future I absolutely agree with Gavin C. I suppose unpitched wort
WILL last ind...
Posted in thread: Why Do Dark Beers Take Longer to Carbonate? on 11-24-2015 at 03:19 PM
I've never heard of or experienced dark beers taking longer to carbonate. There's no reason I
can think of for that to be the case. Higher alcohol beers will take longer to carbonate. And
Posted in thread: Calculating Mash Water amount on 11-24-2015 at 03:07 PM
I see what you're saying. The mash pH can still be affected, but the lauter pH wouldn't be. I
get it now. Thanks for clearing it up.Does the water volume in the mash affect the mash pH
though? I thoug...
Posted in thread: hygrometer indicates stuck fermentation from hot days - repitched but no action yet? on 11-24-2015 at 02:56 PM
Yeah, high fermentation temperatures will not cause the yeast to stall. On the contrary, yeast
prefer higher temperatures and ferment much more efficiently as the temperature gets higher (up
