Hey, I'm brewing an Oktoberfest today. Just started my mash. I just wanted to see if anyone
knows, could it do any harm to just estimate a little decoction? Rather than calculate it all
out, just grab...

As to your first question, since you've had the same readings for a few days at 1.012
fermentation should be complete, and you could bottle at this point.Question 2. Yes absolutely.
Anything that will...

I don't even boil my starter wort, just mix the DME with fresh RO water then pitch the yeast
and it in a sanitized flask.That sounds risky. Isn't the point of boiling your starter to
insure there aren...

alright, thanks. I left it in there for 30 mins, which may have been overkill, but I wanted to
be sure. Should be good to go.

it will take a while before you notice anything with a lager. Even for an ale 24 hours could be

yes, that's what it is. I have an electric stove so I'm not supposed to put my flask on the

needs to be cover...

Since you're dealing with stout level gravities, I would transfer to a secondary for at least
another 2 weeks. Then bottle. That's just my opinion though, I'm sure you'll get plenty more

Quick question, I'm currently making a yeast starter, and I'm doing a double boil in my new
flask (thank you Santa). Anyways, is the liquid inside the flask supposed to boil? Because mine
is not and I...

So I am coming up with a milk stout recipe, and I have a question. I'm not sure what to add for
body and head retention. From my understanding, flaked barley, wheat, oats, and carapils are
Posted in thread: 12 hours into first home brew...how does it look? on 08-27-2012 at 07:39 PM
yeah, I've never opened my primary until it's well finished. Just watch the airlock for
bubbles. I wouldn't leave the lid loose. Don't want to risk ruining all the delicious beer!
After 4-7 days it sh...
