I fermented in a room that stays 70-71 degrees. I know that's high for windsor but it's the
best I can do in my place. So I think that probably explains the phenolic character. But does
that also expl...

OP here. I can tell you now that I've had the IPA, there is a definite Belgian character to it
that I didn't intend to create. I'm thinking these two things are related...Sent from my iPhone

Anyone else ever get high attenuation with Windsor? I chose Windsor on my last two batches
specifically because it's supposed to be a moderate to low attenuator. Yet the IPA I did went
from 1.068 to 1...

Yeah it might... I am more concerned about it altering the flavor than ABV going too low. I've
always thought of US-05 as a pretty neutral yeast. Maybe I'll just use Windsor for now and see
how far th...

Hi all, I'm working on my perfect IPA and trying to figure out if this is a good idea:I like
fruity IPA's and don't mind them a little sweet, so I would like to hit a final gravity around
1.018 or 1.0...

Well it looks like you all were dead on. I threw my bottles in the fridge and two days later, I
just cracked one and got over-carbonation, but no gushing. Next time I'll just have to be a
little more ...

Alright, lesson learned! :) Do folks normally stir up the fermenter or swirl it to make sure
the yeast is fully done?Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

Ok here are my gravity readings:OG: 1.062G @ 2d: 1.023G @ 8d: 1.021G @ 14d: 1.021Dry hopped @
14dFG @ 21d: 1.016Fermented between 70-72 degrees the whole time. No major fluctuations outside
of that. S...

Oh and another relevant thing, maybe. Fermentation seemed normal for the first 2 weeks.
Vigorous for the first 2 days, then died down. Gravity at 1 week was the same as gravity at 2
weeks. So I dry ho...

Help me figure out what went wrong here... I'm a new brewer and this is only my second batch.
My bottles had only been carbing for 7 days but when I cracked them open, they all gushed. A
lot. Some had...
