  • Posted in thread: Any way to speed up the brew day? on 04-22-2013 at 02:54 PM
    It takes me, from heating up my sparge water, to cleaning out my keggle at the end, 7 hours to
    do a 10 gallon batch. I know I can do a few things to speed up the process (like getting a
    separate keggl...

    6 weeks brewing is a long time. It usually takes me a few hours.

    So you mean none of those aside from the Chinook? I'll just split the ounce of Chinook between
    the two carboys then....

  • Posted in thread: Which hops for dry hopping pale ale? on 06-14-2011 at 09:20 PM
    And what would be your 2nd choice? I only have an ounce of Chinook and this is a 10 gallon
    batch....

  • Posted in thread: Which hops for dry hopping pale ale? on 06-14-2011 at 07:38 PM
    I brewed the West Coast Pale ale from austinhomebrew. I have some extra hops lying around
    (Perle, Tettnang, Spalt, Fuggle, Hallertau, Chinook, Hersbrucker) and was wondering which one
    of these would b...

  • Posted in thread: Final gravity too high? on 02-20-2011 at 02:43 PM
    8 days is too short of time. I've had beers drop to the proper gravity after 2 months in
    primary. Check it later.

  • Posted in thread: Beer Fg coming out high consistently. on 02-16-2011 at 11:05 PM
    Also, when are you checking your beer? I have had issues with high FG as well since I have a
    cold house but I've found that if I keep my beer on the yeast longer, it eventually goes down.
    I brewed a 1...

  • Posted in thread: Reusing yeast cake on 11-20-2010 at 04:24 PM
    I have yeast in a growler from a previous 5 gallon batch (pale ale). Brewing a porter now and
    want to reuse this yeast. I poured the trub and yeast into the growler (wasn't that much hop
    residue). Sho...

    Yes, leave it on the yeast cake at room temperature until the diacetyl is gone- it will NOT
    improve with lagering and may worsen. If it's not getting better in a day or two longer, you
    could try gentl...

    Had an octoberfest fermenting at 55 degrees. Brought the temp up to room temp near the end of
    fermentation for a diacetyl test. I've just tasted the beer after 4 days and I taste
    butter.Should I leave...
