Posted in thread: Just popped the top on our first batch on 04-30-2013 at 01:33 PM
We will keep a look out for any groups up here in Brewer, ME for sure hopefully it won't be to
hard. I would love to see a veteran and help out doing an all grain brew and see how they
regulate their ...

Holy cow. I agree with hogwash, I don't think it's rotten fruit unless something went awry
elsewhere, but there's a lot going on in your beer. I assume this is a 5 gallon batch? Gonna be
a while until...
Posted in thread: I think I bottled my big beer WAY too soon... on 04-11-2013 at 03:44 PM
I see the above discussion happened about 3 years ago - TC Bratto how did they come out in the
end?I am ultra new brewer (my first ever extract batch is still bottle conditioning). I am
trying to unde...

This beer is going to be just fine. Definitely get a wort chiller, though, makes a huge
difference in cooling.
Posted in thread: 1st recipe + 1st late addition try on 03-08-2013 at 06:55 PM
I'd cut the crystal way down 1) since Amber LME already has crystal in it, and 2) 1.5 total lbs
of crystal is a lot even with pale extract. You also won't get much hop flavor with a 2 minute

Give 10 random people a taste of your "Award winning beer" and see if they agree. My guess is
you would be disappointed as not everyone has the same tastes. Some of the best beers I've made
don't get ...
Posted in thread: How big was my mistake? on 01-09-2013 at 01:32 PM
Absolutely don't dump it. In fact, I bet it's just fine. The only way to tell what's happening
with fermentation is checking the gravity, not bubbles, or a krausen, or anything else. My
guess is the F...
Posted in thread: Target volume always low with brewmaster extract kits on 12-12-2012 at 05:22 PM
I'm not familiar with those kits, but are they partial boils, i.e. you add water after the
boil? It's common for the OG to be off due to the top up water not mixing completely.
Posted in thread: Assuming this RIS is infected, can it be saved? on 11-12-2012 at 07:53 PM
I brewed this RIS earlier last month and all went well for a few weeks. I noticed something
funky last week while taking a sample, but I thought it was yeast rafts (kinda looked like
dried yeast float...

Yowza, glad it was in the tub, and now it seems like you were thinking ahead. I always use a
blowoff tube to relieve pressure for big beers, but I don't worry about the Krausen much since
I got fermca...
