Posted in thread: Alternate to Measuring FG on 11-11-2015 at 07:07 PM
I normally brew small batches- 2 gallons, and I was looking for a method to measure FG without
using a hydrometer. I have used a refractometer and have made the requisite calculations, but I

I've seen some really great chocolate stout pudding recipes from Homebrew Chef and Beeroness
like to whip this up for the weekend, but I don't have a whole lot of time. Has anyone made

I've done some Stone clones and 002 and 005 work well. Those strains are just great in general.

open the door ...
Posted in thread: Secondary fermentation temperature on 06-14-2013 at 05:02 PM

Posted in thread: Big starter in fermentation bucket? on 02-15-2013 at 10:46 PM
If you're doing a big starter, you don't want to pitch it into your beer. That could be a
gallon or more of unhopped, oxidized beer going into your nice clean doppelbock. You really
need to be able to...
Posted in thread: Big starter in fermentation bucket? on 02-15-2013 at 09:51 PM
Has anyone made a starter in a fermentation bucket and just pitch their wort directly to it?
I'm planning on a doppelbock and I have a temp controlled fermentation chamber and rather than
needing to b...
