The photo in your original post shows a long length of tubing above the bottling wand. Does
this tubing remained filled with beer after a bottle is filled? Or do you need to retilt the
bucket to fill ...

If your wand does not fill with beer the vent in the bucket lid is clogged. For beer to flow
out the bottom air needs to get in from the top so a vacuum is not created.I bottle without a
lid on the bo...
Posted in thread: How do you heat your fermentation chamber? (Poll) on 12-15-2013 at 08:26 PM
I will use an arduino controlled aquarium heater with a swamp cooler put in a cold room so i
can do anything from like 50f to 90f.

I love that screw-on elbow, I must get one! Here is how I currently bottle. I put my empty
fermenting bucket under the bottling bucket:I use the same bottling setup but when i bottle my

I think it will be okay. Did you add the same yeast as original? Or a high alcohol yeast? In

yeast, it h...

I have to think they mean grains, the smallest pinch should do it. Check MrMalty or Yeastcalc
to see if they have pitch rates for bottle carbing.Well i put in 6-7 little balls, that is
below 1 grain i...

I agree, the sugar did not ferment. Which makes me think the yeast isn't working. It may have

this. You ...

I tasted it again, it spent the last 3 weeks at a warmer place, (around 70F) i shaked up the
yeast a few times, there is still zero carbonation.What is going on with this batch? I think it
did not tas...
Posted in thread: Basic beer + cherries, vanilla bean and tea? on 11-29-2013 at 01:29 PM
