    If you're starting a lager now, maybe you ought to call it a Novemberfest :DThis is a good
    point. Ale yeast it is. I think I can lager without much trouble, but I'll try it on something
    else.The real ...

    I have two goals with this next brew 1) to make something like an Oktoberfest and 2) to use
    some ingredients I already have, which I recognize will take it somewhat away from true
    Oktoberfest style. I...

  • Posted in thread: Seal and airlock during primary? on 12-06-2012 at 07:10 PM
    Obviously we do this for beer, but I read about a lot of folks that just cover their wine
    during primary and don't seal and airlock until secondary. Any opinions or real reasons to do

    What was your final gravity? I did not find it to be overly sweet.I didn't measure. I let it
    sit in primary for a week and secondary for another 10 days or so, but had to bottle in time to
    take to the...

    I just did this one according to the directions. It sucked. I didn't mess it up, it's just too
    sweet. In hindsight, I'd add some biscuit malt for flavor and maybe some rice solids to thin it
    out a bit...

    Even old clean sanitized copper pennies, five or six work great, I think pre70 is okay, but
    you may want to confirm when copper pennies became primarily zinc.Pre-1982 and about half of
    1983 pennies w...
