    I did a yeast starter, and bubbled with pure O2 for 1 minute in each 5 gal carboy (is that
    enough?). yeast and carboy were both at 55 when pitched, and lowered to 52ish. Thanks for the
    comments. I wil...

    I'm kinda new to lagering. I brewed a maibock and fermented two 5 gallon carboys at 52 degrees.
    After 14 days, the airlock appeared to only be bubbling about 3-4 times per minute, so I raised
    the temp...

    OK, so we all know Brutus. I'm building my own, but can't steal the name "Brutus"... I'm
    considering Brewsaurus, Brewzilla, Cart de' Bru...What names have you used or considered?

    As an aside, with virtually all fruit other than wine grapes, you will need to add sugar to get
    the gravity to where you want it. No other fruit that I know of has enough residual sugar to be
    fermente...

    No instructions. Got it from Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Mi. The intent is to make your
    own cherry juice to drink, not ferment... but why not make wine with it? :). HahaI've never
    done acid test...

    I just got a half gallon of tart cherry juice concentrate the weighs in at 68 brix (which I
    think is equivalent to SG of about 1.3... I want to make a nice wine from it with quite a bit
    of cherry flav...

    So I picked 8 lbs of raspberries and made a 2 gallon batch of wine. Its been fermenting for
    almost a week now. Last night the SG was 1.009, and it tasted perfect so I wanted to stop
    fermentation. I ad...

    that???Exactly! A bit on the high end for cost, but they match the Love controllers I have,
    so I am ordering 2 of them right now. Thank you! :mug:

    I've done a search on here for a solution, but all I found were open threads from 2-4 years ago

    for hop add...
