  • Posted in thread: Will beer carbonate faster with more yeast? on 05-21-2014 at 03:12 AM
    If more yeast was transferred to the bottling bucket then yes, it will carb faster. You will
    also have more yeast sediment in your bottles though. You can check them out a week at a time
    and see where...

    1) Since you just bought a new fermenter, just a rinse to get the dust out will be fine, but
    make sure to sanitize with star-san or something similar. After fermenting is done, use PBW
    before your nex...

  • Posted in thread: How do YOU bottle aged big beers? on 04-23-2014 at 04:48 AM
    I'm always afraid of yeast dropping out, so I'll bottle after 4 weeks, then age as long as
    necessary. If you go over that, I'm sure there will still be enough yeast to carbonate your
    beer, but adding ...

    I've found that when I get muddled beers it's because I'm trying to get creative with my
    recipe. Keeping it simple usually alleviates muddled flavors. You may find that a SMaSH beer
    with less hops may...

    Regular 12oz bottles? Normal caps? Possibly a leak? Head retention has to do with the proteins.
    Was it an extract? If you used irish moss or whirfloc you could have dropped out some proteins.
    Dirty gl...

    What do your IPAs taste like? Why do they taste off? Your process and ingredients would help

  • Posted in thread: Help with Higher than expected SG on 04-20-2014 at 05:26 AM
    Yeah add water till you get your target SG. You can use a brewing calculator like the BrewBot
    app to do this. Then take out the same amount of wort as the amount of water you added to get
    back down to...

  • Posted in thread: BJCP carbonation guidelines on 04-20-2014 at 04:11 AM
    I'm curious about this question as well and there wasn't really a clear answer. Any other
    thoughts on the volumes of co2 per carbonation description.

    Don't use priming sugar. Use carb tabs. I use the ones that look like cough drops. They make
    the perfect carbonation. I have done this a few times and works really well. Just make sure to
    flood your k...

    No problem, just curious. So you were able to fix yours after it was carbed? Any levels of
    oxidation detected?

Thanks for the input
