    Hibiscus wine is in my plans for 2015. I usually make juice with it and find that it really
    needs other fruits to taste descent. how does hibiscus wine taste? do you find it lacks
    something, you do yo...

    Finally got around to bottling this batch. Finished at 1.012. It has a very acidic finish,
    hoping that will mellow with a bit more age. If I make it again I'd definitely leave out the
    acid blend until...

    I've been having some problems moving from partial extract brewing to BIAB, all my beers tasted
    fine but they were all finishing with much higher gravity than I inteneded. They usually were
    getting st...

    I posted earlier about my attempt to strain some of the mango pulp out with a strainer bag in
    the primary. I wouldn't waste your time trying that doesn't seem to of helped the amount of
    Mango pulp. He...

    I use a hydrometer to take measurements.From the reading I've done my issue is because I
    haven't nailed my strike temp yet. For this batch it was up near 160 for the first 5-10 minutes
    until i got it ...

    You already pitched twice? Was the second yeast at high krausen when pitching? If so, it's
    strange that two different vials gone stuck. Which temperature is the beer at? Did you double
    check the densi...

    I made this BIAB and overshot the OG: 1.052 but fermentation seems to be stuck. Its down to
    1.030 and won't budge. I bought another vial of yeast, made a starter and pitched it. I stirred
    it every day...

    Finally got around to starting myself a 6 gallon batch. Following FF500's advice I left the
    acid blend out, and used 20 cups of sugar. To try and remove some of the stuff that was
    clogging up peoples ...

    The thermostat for the BM23 is super easy to replace. A couple screws and two wires, and making
    sure the capilary tube is in the right place.I can't say for sure without pictures but if your

    This is the fastest its been fermenting since I started it, so it is very promising. This yeast
    is suppose to be slow anyway so I'm thinking another 6-10 weeks until its done but at least its
    making p...
