    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 04:52 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
    other imple...

  • Posted in thread: Can you sanitize bottles, cover with foil, and keep them sanitary? on 02-22-2014 at 04:51 AM
    If your bottles are clean, I think it ought to work in principle, but I think it's probably not
    a terrific idea. Whatever method you use to sanitize, if long as you seal the container,
    nothing is goin...

    **** Papazian.Wow, you're edgy.I just wanted to say that I agree with Adams intent, I think, in
    leaving some of the Internet banter out of brewing and just don't worry and brew. I am in AG
    brewer and ...

    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...
