Nyxator, saw your post about roasted barley and was wondering how much stock you put in that theory. I've brewed four batches total in my tenure as a home brewer (if you can call that a tenure): 3...

I hit target gravity, so I assume the original gravity was spot on (it was an extract kit). Thanks for the feedback on this.

Do you know if a poorly ”mixed” wort will have problems fermenting (aside from aeration concerns). For instance, pockets of sugar equating to pockets of alcohol? Would it all work itself...

Stirring of wort for aeration and proper mixture of top off water

Hey folks,

I just brewed last night and forgot to aerate before pitching. I have activity in the air lock so I'm not too concerned about fermentation, but I read somewhere that a wort not properly...

Regarding stirring up the wort: I know you're supposed to do it in order to aerate, but other than aeration and inaccurate OG reading, will the beer ferment properly?

@A R Josh: Thanks dude. I did everything by the numbers so it was a little unsettling; if there was a problem I legitimately would not have known when/how it occurred.

So my OG was 1.044 and FG wound up being 1.012-1.013 (target FG was 1.010). Is this going to drastically affect my brew? Also, it came out quite a bit darker than your picture because I did a 2...

Is there anything besides brewing larger volumes that will prevent a lighter style from coming out darker than it should? I was told to go with DME instead of LME, which I did. It looks like it's...

Low volume boil produces darker color?

I just brewed a Hefeweizen on 9/4 with a 2 gallon boil. I steeped .25 lbs Crystal 20L and .5lb Carapils for 30 minutes @ 155 F. When I was finished there was a yellow/orange color to the wort. By the...

Well, If I hadn't already purchased the grains I would've given the 50/50 C20 and Carahells a try. As it is, do you think the grains/ratios I've mentioned will produce a similar brew to your recipe?...
