  • Got a $100 gift certificate to mall. Bought a Mr. Beer Kit. First batch got flushed. so did #2. Called for help and told to read Charlie's book. Batch 3 (augmented with stuff from LHBS) was awesome at the time. rnStill into it, though with less time than ever, and more enthusiasm than ever.

    I am nearing bottling time on this. Brewed New Year's Day last year. I haven't re-checked the
    gravity or pH, but have taken numerous small samples of each. The batch A, which to re-cap was
    pitched wit...

    Hasn't budged in last 4 days.I kegged it last night and racked the other half of my 10 gallon
    batch into a carboy for lack of free keg space. Will see what happens to that half. I suspect
    that nothing...

    Ok. Thanks.As far as sweetening, I intend to use Splenda. I do not mind the taste/aftertaste
    and enjoy soft drinks flavored with it. Any idea on how much to add to a corny keg full of
    cider for a hint...

    campden tablets will not kill off cultured yeast, unless you use it in high enough blends to
    affect the taste. I think you will need k-meta in addition to kill and prevent fermentation. Or
    pasturise i...

    So the two quarts of sludge I poured into an old glass apple juice jar (previously I had made
    starters in it) with an airlock, has now nearly cleared. I've moved it a few times, but most of
    the sludge...

    If you overshot your mash temp by a few degrees and your grainbill had a lot of unfermentables
    (crystal, roasted malts), that type of attenuation wold be expected for S-04.I didn't overshoot
    the mash ...

    Im sure the compression fittings can be reused, might need to replace the internal collar
    though. I had to search for this but I mentioned that I was awaiting some of the BruGear
    fermentors and you we...

    I have the wyeast 1217 west coast IPA that I will be using in my arrogant bastard clone
    attempt.It hadn't been available before now so I don't think anyone has used it for this beer
    yet.As far as the ...

    Planning to use roughly 5 oz homegrown Chinook hops for the whirlpool and possibly 5 minute
    additions perhaps. No idea on the AA%. Might also add some 30 and 45 minute additions, my last
    brew of this ...
