I suppose it depends on the beer. Unless you have an infection, the complex sugars and proteins that normally make up the "body" shouldn't be breaking down any more, unless you're really aging a...

Some depends on how many beers you normally have fermenting at once. I've got a mini fridge build that I basically just extended the door on, but it only fits one carboy. That's fine for me, since...

If you're doing it in a large-mouthed container (mash tun, BK, bucket, etc) I've seen people use plastic wrap to cover the top of the water to prevent oxygen from getting in. That would give you...

Are you talking about souring with grains/lacto and then boiling, or going straight from sparging to fermentation? If you're just doing this as a modified sour mash (a sour sparge?), then you aren't...

It was fairly close, which is about all I was going for. The values that I got were a little lower than I had calculated, but I'm not sure if that's due to the fact that I put the concentrate in...

Yeah, I'd say that's definitely yeast. You probably siphon just fine, but being a darker beer you probably just couldn't see the yeast still in suspension, which then settled out in the bottle. How...

Pics would be good, just to get an idea of what you're talking about. Is the yellow gunk at the top or bottom of the bottle? Either way, if the beer tastes ok I'd imagine it's probably yeast, either...

I'm assuming the brewferm is malt extract, in which case you can certainly use two cans instead of 1, it will just give you a higher gravity if one can is meant to make 9L. That's not necessarily a...

If you're careful not to heat the wort too quickly, you should be ok. If you heat it up too fast some parts of it might get hot enough to denature the enzymes you'll need to convert the rest of the...

A formula depends on what kind of extract they're using, as well as the efficiency of all-grain you're able to get. Generally, I believe a good starting point is that [1lb grain = 0.75lb LME = 0.6lb...

Tips on breaking up dry extract exposed to humidity

Yeah, a lack of O2 basically leads to less yeast growth, which results in stressed yeast and off-flavors. Depending on the yeast strain and style of beer you can sometimes get away with it, but its...
