  • Posted in thread: Is it OK to add water to the secondary keg before bottling? on 10-30-2013 at 03:15 PM
    Thanks! Should I wait until I know 100% that fermentation has stopped? It seems a little
    strange that it's still going so strongly in the 5th week... or is it?I think it's going to be
    good from what I...

    I'm pretty new to brewing, and am making my first 100% my-own-recipe-from-scratch beer. I made
    it from whole hops given to me by a neighbor.It's supposed to be a 5-gallon batch but I noticed
    when I tr...

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it too much. But, you are learning and this is what helps you
    understand timelines of fermentation so have fun watching. I've been brewing for over a decade
    and still ...

    As ncbrewer said, presumably your sample will have different fermentation conditions than the
    rest of your batch. At the very least it would be much more sensitive to the ambient
    temperature due to hi...

    I like the idea, but don't know that I'd leave the hydrometer in it. Hydrometers are rather
    sensitive, so if some gunk clings to it after krausen, it will most likely be weighed down, and
    not be accur...

    Because I'm new, I want a way to monitor fermentation regularly as kind of a learning process.
    The books and web pages I've read all say that a common newbie mistake is to take too many
    samples and ex...

    Thanks! I think a plastic or glass carboy for my primary ferment is the way to go possibly,
    takes the guesswork out of it. Plus it's interesting to watch. Well, relatively. I'm just
    curious whether th...

    Hello everyone,I'm brewing my third ever batch, and it's single hop recipe I was given by a
    neighbor that brews and grows his own hops. He gave me a big bagful recently that I've dried
    and on Sunday I...
