    It sounds like your beer will be fine. Unless someone introduced some type of infection to your
    beer, I don't see an issue. Some people don't use an airlock at all. The CO2 produced by the

  • Posted in thread: Keeping a steady temerature while steeping. on 01-14-2013 at 04:07 AM
    200 degrees is much closer to mash temp than 65 degrees (room temp). I would heat the oven to
    155-160 then shut it off. I routinely use my oven that goes down to 170 and have never had a
    problem provi...

    I regularly brew lagers although I have no experience with fermenting them at 60F. If you want
    to use 60F then go ahead and let us know what you find out. Otherwise, I would suggest that
    it's really n...

  • Posted in thread: Take a look at my first starter please on 02-20-2011 at 02:52 PM
    That"s a good looking starter. I would decant almost all the starter beer before pitching (just
    gently pour it off). Shake up what you have left to suspend the cells and pitch. FWIW that
    looks like a ...

    clear and green are fine but will skunk quickly so keep them in the dark. I've heard screw tops
    leak althoug...

    I'm going to have to agree. A small amount of mercury can permanently damage or kill you. Wash
    everything really well and get brewing again asap

    shipping cost)? 25 lbs for $25. Would be happy to get something else as well if you're
    interested. I don't ...
