Raise psi to 30 psi for 24 hours then drop to serving pressure and let it sit. Should be
decently carbonated in about 3 days and well Carbonated by Sunday. Not a big fan of the shaking
method as you r...

I brew mostly Lagers and you are correct to start you diacetyl rest now. With my Lagers I
usually notice fermentation slowing down around day 5 and start ramping up around that time.

Probably not ruined, just let if ferment out using your new blowoff tube setup. With such a
vigorous fermentation, oxygen is going to have a hard time getting in and the yeast will
quickly consume the...

This method works. The majority of my homebrews are lagers. What I do for my beers with an OG

They do have a 21 day free trial. I use the software and it has vastly improved my brewing.

I use the dilution calculator in beersmith for that purpose. Using that, I can figure out how
much top off water I need to add to my kettle to get to my desired OG prior to racking to my
carboy and pi...

The boil evaporated off some of the water concentrating the sugars and raising your OG.

Well to give you an update. The recipe fermented pretty much like it has the last 4 times I
brewed it. The OG was 1.053 and the FG ended at 1.014 which is right in line where it usually
