    Well, I decided to go with the US-05. I had already prepared the wort, so I pitched the yeast
    dry. The boil went well, even though I did end up with a lower OG than I had hoped (I clocked
    in around 1....

    How about the San Diego Super Yeast? sounds perfect. I will definitely keep my eyes open for
    it while building my next batch. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Thanks for all the feedback.I suppose my concern about basement temperature is that it seems to
    be on the lower side of ideal fermentation temps for many yeast varieties, at least as far as I
    can tell...

    Hi,I am brewing 2.5 gallon batch of an imperial stout which, according to the recipe, should
    yield an ABV of around 10% (though, with my efficiency, I'd be happy with 8% or so).The
    original recipe, ad...

    Your schedule seems fine and depending on your method, you should see around a 5% ABV with
    these kitsWell, you were right about that. Assuming that I made my measurements (somewhat)
    correctly, my IPA ...

    I haven't seen bubbles in the tube or airlock since Monday. Should I be worried?After the first
    two or three days, I didn't notice any activity in the sanitizer/water solution at the end of
    the blow o...

    I found it to be much lower myself the low 60s is about right. You can do a pre boil gravity
    reading with a hydrometer that is a trick I learned on here. Just take a hydro reading before
    you boil (let...

    It is possible to get suckback with the 3-piece...most people who are reporting suckback are
    refering to a 3-piece. Its much harder or impossible(?) to do it with an S-piece.I think that
    the BBS recip...

    You could get some suckback from crashing it in your fridge...what did you put in the airlock,
    water? I usually use a blowoff tube but some people put vodka in the airlockYour schedule seems
    fine and ...

    Just curious if anyone has ever bothered to take a hydrometer reading on the one gallon BBS
    Everyday IPA kit. I brewed my first batch a couple weeks ago, and as far as I could tell the
    reading was 1.0...
