That's odd then. How was the fermentation for the Pilsner? It is possible (but seems incredibly unlikely) your yeast died on you. Are the bottles sealed properly? When you pop them open do you at...

Ginger Beer: could be a couple of things... How does it taste? Is it cloudy when cold or when warm? You might lose a bit of the cloudiness over time but if it tastes fine you shouldn't worry.

Brew / Bottling day from hell

Hi y'all,

I was wondering if anyone had some brewing horror stories to share. I've only had one or two completely smooth brew days (granted, out of six or so) and most bottling days have been...

Yeah, I don't entirely buy that conclusion, unless you are going for 90 IBUs. It seems to me that were you to use the same amount of hops in a half boil as a full boil, your half would be more...

When I strain through mesh, I always wind up with more foam than I can fit in my fermenter :O

I like straining because it leaves less gunk in the fermenter and less stuff that might get bottled -- occasionally you do get floaty bits that don't settle and you don't necessarily want those in...

Depends on what the clumps look like, but in general that sounds pretty normal.

The beer will be cloudy for awhile, especially if you just racked it. It can sometimes take awhile even after being...

The rule of thumb is that if they previously held carbonated beverages, they'll work. Some people brew and bottle in old pop (plastic) bottles, even. Of course, there's some debate about whether or...

Doesn't fermentation begin as soon as you pitch the yeast, even if it can take a day or longer for visible signs of fermentation?
