I checked the hydrometer! It was at the FG. Anyway. I'm using 40oz bottles with screw tops and
I've been venting the bottles a couple times a day. They're developing some serious pressure!
How many mo...

So.... here goes.I'm brewing a weizenbock. I have limited gear, so I had cut down a 5 gallon
recipe in half. So now I have ~2.5 gallons of wort. That ferments. I check it after a while,
and it reads d...

I just re-read the thread. What fun! I said some things wrong at certain points though. IDK
what I was saying! Must've been the nature of the experiment if you catch my drift. hehe.

I think I'm going to get myself some boileezers and use them from now on in the secondary
vessel to provide a nucleation site for the CO2. I noticed adding campden helps a lot, until it

I started a cider on 12-12-12, I didn't rack it to a secondy vessel until 1/6. I noticed it
still had a lot of carb, so I left the airlock on instead of capping it. More than a week
later, I still see...

What is the bottle corking device called and is there one that most people recommend?

These are all really fantastic posts! See why I asked the question? :)The mark of a good forum.

You realize that they used to make high quality beer using open fermentation, no airlocks. The
oxygen that can permeate into you beer post fermentation is so small you'll never know its
there. No need...

Balloon's aren't necessarily oxygen impermeable, in fact as pressure in the balloon builds, I'd
imagine the barrier becomes more permeable. The rate of oxygen dissolution into water and then
back out ...

It seems to me that once fermentation stops, the solvation of atmospheric gasses combined with
Brownian motion would allow oxygen to slowly enter over time, making an airlock inferior to a
