    Dont go to the Beer advocate home brew forums. Their mantra is "hops good, crystal bad".

  • Posted in thread: formula for %of alcohol on 04-18-2015 at 06:57 PM
    (og-fg)*1.31=%ABV. 1.038-1.016=0.022 * 1.31=0.02882 or %2.82ABV. The ABV is a bit low for the
    style. Off the top of my head it should be %4-5. How long did it ferment out? What was the
    temperature of ...

    I walk it to the compost pile and dump it out.

  • Posted in thread: How often do you guys brew? on 04-11-2015 at 07:34 PM
    Usually once every one or two weeks to get the pipeline going for the summer. I dont brew in
    the summer because the basement gets to warm for fermentation. Once the 4th of July hits, my
    fridge is pack...

    fine organic apples lovingly crushed by barefoot virgins. :)Previous batches were quite
    drinkable right out...

    When apples ferment it gets pretty smelly, no matter what yeast you use. As Damonkey said, give
    it time in primary and it will go away.

    Hope your brew went well; but I always worry when first time brewers jump in and brew "super
    stout extreme hop chocolate bomb." IMHO you should start small with an extract/pale ale, and
    not all gain, ...

    I had an oatmeal stout that was a gusher. I added three 1/3 cups of corn sugar instead of three
    1/4 cups. Anyway what I did to solve my problem was to pour two at a time in a gallon pitcher
    and once t...
