    Thanks all. I hadn't thought about it, but these were early batches in my brewing and I very
    well may have bottled them to early. They were very heavy beers too, so they may have finished
    fermenting i...

    Foaming bottles could be due to infection and not over carbonationIs there any way to tell if
    it is an infection? Also, I've been drinking them and they taste great. Additionally, I meant
    corn sugar.

    Sometime in the next thirty to ninety days, I'm planning to brew three five gallon batches of
    stout for Octoberfest, Thanksgiving & Christmas. I want to bottle it and store it till use. The
    problem I ...

    Thank you for the replies.I used dry yeast and I made a quart of starter. Did I over pitched
    and what effect will this have on my beer? By the way, I've never such an active fermentation
    and I've neve...

    Thanks for the calculator link and I'm with you on the 'more is better yeast cell count', but
    I'm more interested in what the starter does that I can taste in my beer. Will there be a
    difference in ta...

    On Friday, I made a 32 oz starter with a cup of LME and a single packet of dry yeast. Last
    night, I pitched it and today my air lock is running like super duper fart machine. In the
    past, I've waited ...

  • Posted in thread: Plastic Fermenting Bucket : Pink Spots?? on 12-10-2009 at 01:50 PM
    I did a little research and it appears the spots are a byproduct of a fungus (Paecilomyces -
    Hyphomycetes). They are naturally occuring in the air and on the ground. Ideally, they need
    three things to...

    Plus one on the plastic bucket. Love the banter, but what are the pink spots and has anyone
    else gotten them? The two buckets in question have about four to six batches each and I keep
    them clean. Add...

    I use C-Brite cleanser and it isn't from an extremely dirty bucket either. I found the marks
    after a four week ferment and the beer is fine. Ideally, I'd like to know if anyone knows why
    they appear o...

    etc.???Toby
