    Can you have a yeast that stalls out and may look like it's finished by FG readings, but still
    hasn't completed its process? Is this the reason to look at attenuation of the yeast to
    determine if the ...

    US-05 works great in the low 60s. If you pitch enough, you can even use it in the mid to upper
    50s. At those temperatures, it ferments very cleanly, letting the malt and hops shine
    through.As for the ...

    More time in primary would likely help. I go 10-14 days minimum before bottling on a low
    gravity batch when I am pushing the timeline. The Mr beer yeast is absolute crap, use the other
    stuff you picke...

    50 degrees at night?!? Wow, you must have a lot of blankets. Haha. As originally stated I did
    have a basement. "Is it better to put it in the basement which is about 5 degrees cooler and
    wrap in blank...

    I have done about 8 batches so far with varying results. Nothing very good yet but mostly
    drinkable. I haven't made a batch for about 4 months. I decided to start over with a basic
    lager. I am in a ne...

    I use Oxiclean free (unscented; the one with the green top). There are other brands of oxygen
    cleaners, also, such as Sun Oxygen Cleaner or LA Totally Awesome. You'll usually find these
    with or near t...

    I am brewing my last mr beer refill later this week. I have started to experiment with dme and
    hop additions. My question is, should I stick with mr beer bases and continue to experiment or
    is there s...

    I was just thinking today that I've never had a beer blow the swing-top open so strong as the
    beers I've brewed with MrB, so they must recommend a lot of priming sugar. Maybe I'll try some
    with less. ...
