If that's the case, I'll be happy (no other infected batches). There was no acetate smell in
the fermenter though, and the yeast harvest from the infected batch (which I'll dump
regardless) doesn't sm...

Some of these responses are less than helpful. Please remember your manners, and either provide
a helpful answer, or don't answer.Thanks.Anyway- there is a great free resource here:

Nail polish remover odor is from acetone. Ethyl acetate, in larger amounts, is the cause. It
can be from infection, but is commonly caused by high fermentation temperature. I've heard it
can be from o...

Damn science, such a poor loser. Always has to win. Ok next question: given this information I
want to carbonate at 20 psi and use a 20 foot 3/16th line. Can I set pressure at 20 psi and
rock it to en...

I like the looks of this: could use light DME for the 8 pounds of two-row, about 5 pounds DME,
and I think it'd be a great beer.

about the color change that occurred , but it's crystal clear now and smells rather pleasant .

Not looking for an argument here. I have used the same amount of sugar every time I bottle a
batch of beer and these last two times I've had an issue. Never before. So either my
measurements have been...

Is it possible to carb at 30PSI then after the 10 days lower the pressure down to 10,15, or 20
PSI to pour? I have heard that you can do this and I have heard that you can't. I have been
told to do th...

But weight in ounces doesn't convert to "cup" measurements. 4 ounces, by weight, is not equal
to 1/2 cup. I will try to remember to weigh out some sugar tomorrow and put it in a measuring
cup but I re...

Soda is higher carbed than beer- 30 psi at fridge temps. It takes about 10 days or so to carb

that has alwa...
