Posted in thread: One gallon short on water, 20 hours in: Add water or no? on 06-03-2012 at 03:14 PM
1.041 is a decent gravity for a dry stout. Let it ferment out and then at bottling time you can

to boil y...
Posted in thread: First batch w/ pure O2 in a conical - help! on 06-03-2012 at 03:04 PM
A couple of questions about your process:- When you push starsan through the stone, I assume

Posted in thread: First batch w/ pure O2 in a conical - help! on 06-02-2012 at 08:18 PM
I use that wand and it works great for me. My batches are fermenting out drier than they did
before using O2, and that is comparing the same recipe. Granted, I have not done a split batch

Posted in thread: Use of orange peel...how much is too much? on 04-24-2012 at 01:59 PM

Posted in thread: Need some help from a chemist on 03-16-2012 at 01:59 PM
The problem with yeast is that it's a living organism that is made up of countless different
molecules, each with their own chemical formulae. There is no set of molecules that really
define it any mo...

Cream ale and Irish Red are usually widely appreciated. Stick to lower ABV, low or no roast
