  • For now im going to stick with William's brewery kits. i will be out of town for the next 5 months, i'm planning on getting brewing supplies there so i can continue doing it. but i wont be trying anything too "fancy" but i will switch fermenters half way through, which i was unaware was a good idea before...

    anyway, will be trying:
    Summer Ale
    New Belgian Quad
    Double Stout

    you can use pom, but the flavor might not come out so clear in something like an amber. a
    wheat/pom beer would be something to maybe try, and that would showcase that pom flavor

    Ive done a few kits so far, a few have turned out, one was a waste (i think i just didnt like
    the kit though)Right now im brewing an Alaskan Amber clone, but i want to flavor it for my
    fiancee. She li...

    Thought i would update: everything turned out great, im not sure if this is how the beer is
    supposed to taste, but it tastes as good as something i'd pick up in the store. ive had the
    chance to have a...

    well quality is important. i'll wait.

    well i finally heard back from Williams brewing, he assured me that it is a surprisingly high,
    yet accurate, FG at 1.042... then went on to say that my beer is fine.im still a little unsure
    about all ...

    Well, usually when the gravity goes that far below what the recipe says, there's an infection
    of some sort. I think there must be a typo or something in there. It's also a good thing you
    didn't bottle...

    It's probably not done fermenting yet. Was it pretty sweet still? I'd leave it alone for at
    least a week. That's quite a beer for one smack pack with no starter.ok, thanks. lol, pretty
    funny i came in...

  • Posted in thread: Finishing Gravity pretty low. on 12-09-2009 at 04:49 PM
    I'm guessing the FG will be closer to 1.015 or 1.020 than the 1.042 they claim. Did you taste
    the sample when you checked the gravity?yes, it didnt taste quite as strong as i'd expect out
    of an imperi...

    That's a bunch of extract. For 5 gallons, your OG would be about 1.104, 6 gallons it'd be
    1.086. How much yeast did you put in there?1 pack of liquid wyeast. what came in the kit.

  • Posted in thread: Finishing Gravity pretty low. on 12-09-2009 at 04:29 PM
    Tell us the recipe, somebody will figure out what your OG was. "At least 1.088" is pretty weird
    for an OG in a recipe.it was an extract kit. so i really dont know. this is as close as they
    come to rea...
