Thanks Sweetcell. I'll try raising temperatures earlier next time.The yeast was probably a
month old, and I made a starter according to yeastcalc.com. I'd heard about intentionally
under-pitching for ...

I brewed Midwest Supplies Noble Trappist all-grain kit a week and a half ago, pitching a
starter of Wyeast 3787 into oxygenated wort at 1.058 OG. Sample from yesterday showed SG at
1.012, within finis...

Thanks Homebrewhaha! I don't know how I missed that post.I'm guessing with Centennial hops, I'm
focusing on Myrcene? So a hop stand at what, 140-145F?

Regarding time/temperature, I've done two Stone Ruination clones so far, both utilizing a hop
stand. On the first batch, I dropped the temp to 190F, then tossed in the 2oz of Centennial
pellets, and s...

I just bottled my 8th batch, the all-grain Honey Porter kit from MWS. I followed the direction

capper to w...

You mention fermenting at room temp.... what is that?My first two batches were fermented at
room temps (68-72) because I didn't know any better, and both were sub-par. My next two
batches, after learn...

If the kits are designed to do a partial boil, then aren't the IBU's calculated for a higher
gravity wort, so then doing a full boil would result in the IBU's being higher then the
recipe?A full boil ...
