  • Love beer of all styles so I decided it was a natural move to start home brewing. Have a basic 2 stage kit. Im on my 3rd batch right now and am (I think) progressing nicely. Have had good responses from friends and family who have tried them. Ive done a IPA, Double Pale Ale and a Black Lager.

    How long is to long to have yeast and not brew with it ? I have a yeast dated Nov 2012, its
    been in the fridge since purchasing it. Will a starter be enough or should it be a case where I
    just pour it...

    I stepped away from brewing for awhile but now Im back and having a brain fart. Ive got a
    recipe for a Pliney The Elder clone but all my notes indicate my malt bill in percentages
    rather than pounds a...

    White powdery does sound like an infection. Did it look like this? If so, not good news for
    your amber. Your beer might end up a lot more like the beers you were just drinking in Belgium.
    does look v...

    Ok so I just arrived home last night from a 3 week Belgian beer holiday and looked in on my
    American Amber that I transferred into secondary before I left and it has a white powdery film
    on top of it....

    I just recently purchased BrewSmith 2.0 and I have one question. I have plenty of recipes that
    I want to enter so as I can get the fully use out of it and one thing Im having a problem with
    is when en...

    So it's dropped another 10 gravity points since you racked it? If so, then I'd just leave it
    along for a few more weeks and pull another sample. Pulling it off the cake simply slowed down
    the process....

    This is probably the dumbest advice I could imagine. If there is not currently a fight, there
    is no need to start one.I have what I consider to be possibly the easiest divorce anyone could
    probably ho...

    About all you can do at this point. You could get lucky, with giving it more time. You might
    try pitching in fresh yeast (make a starter though). If you do that, chances are you'll need to
    oak it agai...

    I've had 1728 go to 12.5% before, so I don't think the yeast is the issue. Granted I left my
    batch on the cake for about 3 months before I moved it over to aging vessel. I also used a
    starter and pure...

    What yeast did you use?? I tend to let brews with an OG of 1.070-1.080 go for 4-6 weeks before
    I do anything else with them. Sometimes that's a transfer to serving keg, other times it could
    be to add ...
