Also, unless you need to free up the primary fermenter, I'd just leave the beer alone for the
entire 3 weeks. Under ordinary conditions, there's little reason to move a beer to
secondary.For standard ...

Is 50 degrees cold enough for primary fermentation? Yes. Just about perfect.

Many of my brews (perhaps most) have a sharp hop-bittery aftertaste. It always worries me, but
never shows in the end product. I wouldn't worry.Not much you could do anyway...
Posted in thread: Add DME, sticks to bag! on 02-22-2014 at 03:52 AM
I just cut the bag all the way across, open it wide, and dump it as fast as possible. It feels
like a lot sticks behind, but it's not really all that much. I prefer this to getting gunk on
Posted in thread: Can you sanitize bottles, cover with foil, and keep them sanitary? on 02-22-2014 at 03:51 AM
If your bottles are clean, I think it ought to work in principle, but I think it's probably not

Oh no worries.And for a 1060 beer with fresh yeast, you'd need 219 billion cells or 2.3 packs.
Or a starter :)...or an 11g pack of dry yeast... :ban:

asked simply why the calc were asking for a gravity and if that was the gravity of the starter.
I think someone mentioned the starting gravity at ~.040 was best practice and he can read
endlessly on t...

May sound noobish, but I'm having a difficult time finding lager malt. Any suggestions?No
problem being a noob. Don't worry about lager malt, it is just a lightly kilned base malt. You
can use pilsene...

Without doing that, my method is this, very simple. I store approximately 100 - 150 billion
cells in refrigeration. About 3 or 4 days before I am ready to brew. I make a 2000ml starter
around 1.040 gr...
