I don't think there is a NEED for all the additional stuff, but once you do your first
all-grain, I think you'll see why having certain additional equipment will make your life a lot
easier.I just wen...

You guys are awesome, thanks for the fast response.One quick follow-up...doesn't it seem odd
that 4.3 ounces of table sugar raised the gravity of 4.25 gallons by 5 gravity points? That
seems very high...

So I just finished bottling a RyePA that I am so excited for, but I got a little scared after
taking a gravity reading from the bottle batch. After cold crashing I bottled my batch at 1.012
FG. I refe...

Thanks RM-MN. That's what I thought would be the answer, but since I've heard from sources that
the WLP550 really dislikes the temp drop and they are hard to re-activate once they go dormant,

So, I've read all the threads about people worried about stuck fermentation and the possible
finickiness (is that a word) of WLP550 over the last week+ to get full attenuation. I want to

I kind of took your advice before you gave it, as I saw how small an amount of liquid a step-up
starter would be for that large amount of slurry. The problem is, I might have spoke too soon

Posted in thread: 4 extract batches down, 4 FGs of 1.016 on 05-07-2013 at 10:24 PM
Is this just a coincidence??I have now brewed a Nut Brown, Stout, Belgian Wit, and APA. OGs
ranged from 1.044 - 1.062, but the final result has always been the same exact FG. I didn't
notice a pattern...

Ok, I'm going to ask this question although it seems incredibly stupid and implausible. I know
the answer is most likely that my hydro is in need of replacing, but here we go anyway.Is it

Unfortunately, I got busy and left it in the carboy for an extra week and a half. I had plans
to bottle last weekend one my gravity readings were steady at 1.009, but something came up. Now
