    Made this over the weekend! Basically made it exactly to the recipe above, although the OG came
    in a bit lower at 1.055. Maybe because I was doing a partial boil? Anyway, my observations:-

  • Posted in thread: This is a good thing, right? (fermentation & airlock activity) on 08-07-2010 at 10:21 AM
    I've made 7-8 batches or so over the past year. All have been very drinkable, liked some more
    than others. I usually get about 36 hours of visible/audible airlock activity, then it dies
    down. I know i...

    Beginner here as well; I've done 7-8 batches. My first brew was the Cooper's kit. Came out
    decent, definitely drinkable. If I were to do it again I'd use two cans of the liquid malt
    extract and I woul...

    SWMBO has given me permission to buy a chest freezer or similiar apparatus for cooling during
    fermentation; apparently I've been a good boy lately :ban: Only condition is that it doesn't

  • Posted in thread: Chilling wort by adding water? on 07-18-2010 at 10:35 PM
    Hmm, good point - I hadn't thought of what would happen if the cold water didn't cool the wort
    enough. I obviously would be adding the wort to the fermenter with 2-3 gallons of cold water in
    it. It wo...
