Rubbermaid

Only 8 bottles? Put them in a rubbermaid container, a cooler, or even a kitchen trash can with a lid. You may be fine, opening this early the CO2 hasn't had much time to dissolve but best to avoid...

Gave it a try

Thanks for the suggestion. I gave Beersmith a try this afternoon on an ill fated foray into all grain. Beersmith worked fine, the rest of the brew day not so much. I'll try it for the trial period...

I've only done one oaked recipe but I found that 2 oz oak chips in 5 gallons for three weeks was more than plenty for an oaked IPA. I placed chips in a mason jar and just covered with bourbon. I...

...And the hat, but she is a witch!

Not only do I use Starsan for my brewing, I keep a spray bottle in the kitchen for a multitude of other uses. SWMBO is a bit of a germaphobe so she likes to...

They may be recommending the higher temp because it gets you beer faster. The higher temps will give you more phenols and esters which can be good in something like a wheat beer. I usually try to...
