  • I actually became interested in homebrewing when I picked up an unused Mr. Beer kit from a Goodwill store, although it didn't come with everything to brew. I wanted to know more so I found this site and read around a little bit. I then found the LHBS that's less than a mile from me and went to ask questions. I ended up leaving with a book instead of equipment and ingredients. Finished that book and picked up another, somewhat more scientific book and am almost finished with it. So, I then went back to the LHBS and got some basic equipment and am now fermenting my first batch as of 4-24-2008 and never did use that Mr. Beer kit.

    Thanks, It's been in the primary for over 5 weeks and at 1.010 for a week so I hope it was
    done...went ahead and bottled. Tastes great though, can't wait til it carns up!

    OK, so I tried getting the temp up and waiting a bit, but it pretty much stopped at 1.030.
    Since I know I'll be needing the carboy as a secondary for another beer I went ahead and
    pitched 3711. It bro...

    The sanitized foil will work fine on your saison..Cool, thanks so much for the quick reply.
    I'll go do that!

    Ok, so I thought I had another carboy cap but I guess I only have one and it's on my fermenting
    Saison. I brewed tonight and I'm just waiting for it to cool and just noticed this. What should
    I do? I'...

    Cool BigRob, I'll go with patience first trying to get it warmed up a little bit and checking
    the gravity every now and then. If it doesn't move then I'll get it finished off with 3711.
    Thanks!

    Thanks JamesM, I did stir it a little to no avail. But, now that I think of it I do have a
    heating pad! Should I do it for like an hour a day? How do I maintain it?

    Hi everyone, I brewed the Cottage House Saison recipe last weekend, which I didn't hit my OG
    from the mash so I added a little extra honey and some DME. But, not too worried so that aside,
    I ended up ...

    Blah! Threads like this also happen way too often in most forums. What is a forum if not for
    discussion. If you don't like what the thread title is don't read it. This seems to me to be a
    really quick...

    An aroma that you can taste IMO is a flavor.OP here is a good link for many things about
    brewing: for the link! Although, I do have the book, have read it and keep it open while I'm
    brewing...I don't...

  • Posted in thread: Hop Schedule and IBU's on 07-30-2012 at 02:25 AM
    Thanks for the quick responses! Yeah, I only had a 60min and 30min hop addition and just enough
    to keep the IBU's to style. But this helps, and I'll definitely be looking for some info on it
    next time...
