    Yeah that is what I though. I stayed with the Fuggles. Will see how it turns out.

    I was worried about it being to sweet. I like Sammy Smith OS don't want a sweet mouth taste.. I
    don't want the citrisy taste in it either. I was just looking my in stock hops that had a
    slightly highe...

    I am making a Oatmeal Stout kit today from Midwest Supplies. I am a little worried about the
    low bitterness from the fuggles and am thinking about changing to cascade to up it a bit.

    Take a gravity reading. If it stays the same for a few days its done. But give it time.
    Patience only makes your beer better. I let mine sit almost 2 weeks before I check on it.

    Get some tubing and fit it to the air lock and the other end and drop it in sanitizer or vodka.
    You to set up a blow off tube. Congrats on the active fermentation!

  • Posted in thread: what went wrong with my skeeter pee? on 12-26-2012 at 06:46 PM

    cycle with no soap and have not had that issue, yet at least. It does sound like soap, but post
    your temp...

    I never do. They are fabric so they could hold particles in fibers. I do reuse paint bags

  • Posted in thread: My first try at brewing on 12-04-2012 at 02:56 AM
    That is good. Sign of a vigorous fermentation. That burn at the bottle is not a huge deal, you
    might get a little off flavor but you probably wont notice it. Probably from adding the extract
    all in th...

    Brew all your ingredients in one pot 2 to 3 gallons then mix it with cool water in the
    fermentation bucket. The tube of ice water would create a home made swamp cooler, as long as it
    kept the temps co...

    Just took a gravity reading of my Helles. 1.02 at 68 which would mean almost 5% abv which is
    exactly what was expected even though I screwed up the mash. :mug:But the beer is so thick with
    sediment I...
