    I have an idea. I had a "chill haze" problem with my Pale Ale. I was told that this was caused

    Did you follow the directions EXACTLY as printed? If so, did you bottle after ONE week of
    fermenting or did you use a secondary fermenter? Honestly, I'm very concerned. I don't want to
    spend 6 weeks p...

    I honestly appreciate all the advice and help. It is hard to wait, no doubt!! However,
    considering this is my first and many of you have been doing this for years, I have decided to
    rack this to the b...

    This is the Brewer's Best German Oktoberfest kit. The instructions state..."Bubbling will slow
    down significantly then stop completely after 3-7 days. When bubbling has stopped, remove the

    I really appreciate both your responses. My mind is at ease now. Today (Aug. 27) I did a
