Got a spare bung? Put some star-san on the top of the bung that's stuck, shove that bad boy all the way in, then use your spare bung. Once the beer's racked out of the better bottle, you can do the...

This is still my favorite thread on here, even after 3 months of ice fishing instead of brewing. I need to dust off all my brewing gear and get another batch in the works so I can show off my ugly...

You should start a new thread.

But!

When you top off, if it's not mixed well enough the heavy extract sinks to the bottom, away from your hydrometer. That'll make it read lower than it really...

Frozen Iodophor?

I was really smart and kept my iodophor in unheated storage during a New England winter. Went to bottle up some beer a few minutes ago, and lo and behold, when it is 3 degrees at sunrise, you might...

I'd drink one a week, since it's your first batch. It'll give you an idea of how it changes over time.

I usually use at least one clear bottle, too. Then you can look at it to see when the yeast...

My lack of knowing what a shaker glass is might be an indication that I choose to drink out of mason jars.

What the heck is a shaker glass, anyway?

Also, don't knock it till you've tried it. ...

See if you can find a mason jar. They come a close second for me.

That's why you need to offer it some! Have a spray bottle handy, and scream like you're taking the dump the cat took if it tries to touch it.

They use them, they just don't take a lot of samples. If you leave it long enough, it should be done fermenting, but you really should check the gravity to make sure it's done.

Of course, there...

Now you need to see if the cat learned anything from the experience. Offer it just a tiny bit of yeast and see if it still thinks it's as delicious as it once was. There's a good chance it won't...

Yeah, you want about 3.6# of DME. If it comes in 3# bags and not 3.6#, get another pound of 2 row and you should be close enough.

I'd use it as an excuse to get a bigger mash tun, myself.

I've got a 50# Darton Ranger recurve from back in the '80s. It probably weighs about the same as the newer compound bows coming out, and that's why I drool over them...
