Well there was still a little krausen/fermentation going on when I transferred, so that the
residual CO2 would blanket the beer.I'll see how it behaves in the morning, hopefully won't
need a blow off ...

So I've transferred my American Pale Ale into secondary today, the problem is my 5 gallon
carboy is almost filled to the brim now. Barely three inches away from the top, all this after
adding the beer...

After two weeks in primary and a week in secondary, there's still signs of activity (i.e bubble

I'm going to try this recipe, though as a novice all-grain brewer. Could someone explain the

I've force carbonated my keg of Dead Guy Ale and noticed it had the green apple taste (10 days
primary, 20 days secondary). It's already in the fridge, but should I be cautious of raising

I've got a Rogue Dead Guy Ale clone about two weeks into secondary at around 68 degrees. This
Sunday I plan on brewing a Rogue Chocolate Stout with the same Pacman yeast. Therefore, this is
