    Make sure you put them all in the fridge for at least 3 days before serving as well. While
    conditioning/carbing at 70ish degrees, a large % of the carb will actually just linger in the
    dead space of t...

    Did you add the priming solution to wort that was already racked in the bucket or did you pour
    the priming solution into an empty bottling bucket and then rack the wort on top of the priming
    solution?...

    It's no longer "wort" it's beer :DWell said, sir. Terminology is important

    OK my bad :) I did, in fact, dissolve the sugar and boil the solution, which was then allowed
    to cool and added to the bottling bucket with a healthy shot of CO2 on top to prevent oxygen
    contamination...

    OK a few months ago bottling some rogenbier. Carbonating with yeast.Used a larger than average

    Ther's no problem doing that, but if you want to store the yeast for a while, you can wash it
    to a more convenient container than your carboy :) Not much space in the fridge to keep a
    carboy on ice.

    Why don't you try a few grain/extract brews? They're very good and you'll lighten up your
    workload a bit. Try a brew with DME as your base malt and steeped specialty malts for you're
    colouring/malt pr...

    This issue I ran into frequently when I was still trying for rigor was sample standard
    variation, both in the grist and the local water.

    Malted grains are incredibly complicated chemical mixtures. I went through a stage of trying to
    quantify the process, chemically. I thought, incorrectly, that because I have an engineering
    degree and ...

    Don't give up just yet. You're tasting 3 week old flat beer, it just isn't going to taste that
    great. If it smells good, I think it will taste good in the end.It looks fine.I think that's
    very wise ad...
