Oh crap. My bad. Apparently I read it all except the very last line.

Either way, I think it's time to start using my hydrometer float thing again. The pain of using it is minimal compared to the...

Overall, I'm leaning towards too little time in the primary.

My theory:
1)There's heavy yeast action, a feeding frenzy
2)I see the action settles down and things get quiet.
3)I bottle...

Pilsner came out bitter. Related to low hops, long boil?

My recipe came out closer to an IPA than a Pilsner, despite only 30 IBU. Any suggestions on why? Is it related to trying to "stretch" my hops and get more IBU's per oz by boiling longer?

I'm making a basic Pilsner for the summer. Since I finally got myself a house, and it came with an extra fridge, I decided to try a cold fermenting lager. I prepared the wort and added tap water to...

Salvaging overcarbonated explosive batch

I have 24 bottles downstairs of a tasty brew. Well, at least the part that didn't cover the ceiling and my entire body. You see, it was a high sugar beer from my first attempts, and I naively bottled...

Secondary stalled fermentation?

I brewed in a 6 gallon carboy, and waited 2 weeks for it to ferment. It appeared to have stopped. At that point, I siphoned it into 3 smaller containers, to add flavors and make 3 distinct beers. I...
