    They are good but a bit off a drive. I got to a little shop off of 29th st and the beltline.You
    mean Jayden James? I haven't been there yet. I'm in Jenison, so it's kind of a hike.They are a

    The two LHBS that I buy from in Grand Rapids, MI, there is no way any of their employees would
    say a negative thing about plastic fermenters as far as primary. I'm just saying if a LHBS said
    that, I w...

    No problem. Let me know how it goes. :)

    I've left beer for several weeks to a month after I should have bottled (I usually bottle after
    3-4 weeks in the fermenter) and no ill affects. RDWHAHB Time is your friend, it's generally
    better to be...

  • Posted in thread: Are you supposed to leave the yeast behind? on 11-18-2013 at 09:10 PM

    Yeah,me too. The only real infection I got was in the Ale Pail's spigot. I got in a hurry I

    looks crysta...

    That's exactly what I was about to say. I had a few batches randomly go bad when I first
    started brewing. Changed to carboys and never had problems after that. Later I asked a friend
    of mine why that ...

    To clarify, I don't usually age my beer in buckets for that long. Usually 3-4 weeks. That just
    happened a few times accidentally as life happens, with no ill affects. Another option for
    secondaries is...

    Only idiots use plastic buckets. They actually force oxygen in your beer and give you man
    boobs. Just kidding. Buckets are fine for at least 6-8 weeks (the max I've ever let a beer
    sit). I know a ton ...
