Terrible tasting beer

I made a Belgian Ale from an extract kit just over a year ago. My wife absolutely loves this stuff and this just so happened to be the fourth time Iíve made this particular kit. So on the 3rd of...

You already know that fermentation started so I wouldn't worry about it at all. Let it be for a week and check the gravity at that time.

Wyeast 1214 vs 1762

Has anyone tried the same recipe with these two strains? The Wyeast Lab website doesn't do much to differentiate these. Anyone have a more personal flavor profile for these?

Soapy beer...

I am a firm believer of the long primary, but I've just had a batch that tasted soapy. Usually that off flavor is from autolysis. This was entirely my error but unfortunately, it's likely one of two...

Wow, what sort of ungrateful friends do you have!? Anytime I've offered my beer (be it at home or when I take it somewhere else), I run into only one problem, running out. Maybe I've just got a much...

Was this a partial boil where you had to top off with water in the primary? It's likely just a false low value. It's really hard to get a true OG when it's not a full boil regardless of how much you...

Not only is my wife a beer drinker, she's also my harshest critic. "Well this tastes alright, but it's not as good as your Belgian Pale." As a result 25% of everything I brew has been that recipe to...

I agree with using a secondary vessel. To be as careful as you need to be, without stiring everything up, you're going to need more hands. If you don't want to invest in a bottling bucket, you will...

Save yourself the time, take one reading, wait a few days, take another. As long as you're sanitized you can take as many as you want, but you don't need to be that hardcore if you don't want to be.

Was this an extract brew? Did you do a smaller boil and then top up with water? Getting an accurate OG is quite hard to do with extracts. If you followed the recipe and added everything you should...

They need time in the bottle to carb, 2 - 3 weeks minimum. As for the secondary, you can skip it. Your beer will be just fine if you keep it in primary for a few weeks. Plus it then gives you another...

I've used a sanitized wine thief or a sanitized measuring cup in the past. But Old E is right on target. Leave it be for a few weeks and you won't have to worry about constantly dipping into it.

Yes, that is a misconception (although that is a contributor). Pitching too much yeast, higher temps, clogged airlocks can all lead to this.
