Thanks for the suggestions Jwood. I appreciate it. I'm going to first take a bottle to another LHBS, where I've heard the owner is incredibly knowledgeable and can solve anything. If he can't...

Have you checked the gravity along the way? Three weeks should be fine, but you can never be too safe. This summer, I bottled a Belgian wit after only two and a half weeks in the primary, and...

Apfelwein has become my go-to drink. I almost, um, like it more than my beer.

I've only made two batches so far, with one batch still in the primary for about a month now, but it really is...

I hope I'm describing the off flavor accurately lol. The first two batches were fermenting in a better bottle. Initially, I thought the better bottle was the issue because it was the first two times...

Thanks for the support. I told my wife if this continues, I'm only going to make Edwort's Apfelwein. Of course, it was in the news this week that apple juice contains high levels of arsenic....

Wow, you got that quick. I couldn't find it on the site. Thank you for the advice. It could be the water, but my buddy who lives in the same town, who has brewed much less than me, just made a batch...

Not bragging at all, but I've read that Rhode Island has the second best water in the country (according to Providence Water). Of course, this may mean nothing at all when it comes to making beer. Is...

Oh yea, and after really analyzing my process, my next guess is the auto siphon. As I mentioned, I don't recall this taste when checking gravity readings and kegging/bottling. I'm wondering if,...

Off flavor three batches in a row.. so confused!

Hello,

I've been brewing a little less than a year now. I've made a little less than 10 batches, but a good portion of them have been great. Lately, though, my last three batches have had the same...

Three weeks is fine. I wouldn't transfer it to a secondary either. Three weeks in the primary, and then check the gravity a couple days in a row. If they're consistent, bottle or keg.

I bottled mine a couple weeks ago and threw in the standard 5 oz pack of priming sugar. Mine was a 5 gallon batch and although they're still conditioning, so far so good. I put a few in the fridge...

Union,

Do you modify your hop additions when you go with a late extract addition, or do you proceed as normal as if you were to add all of the extract in the beginning? This question is assuming...

So no mashing? Just steeping grains (including oatmeal) at 155 degrees for 30minutes and then continue on with the boil like a regular extract plus specialty grains recipe? Maybe I will do one...

Thanks for the help. I've read DB's thread on partial mash before. It's a great description of how to partial mash. My only question is when sparging, is it preferred to use the pour over method or...

Oatmeal Stout extract or partial mash

Hello,

I've wanted to make an oatmeal stout for a while now. Considering it's a good time of the year for a nice oatmeal stout, I'm thinking of making it my next brew. I was looking on Midwest or...

Do you always sparge the grains when doing extract plus steeping? I've never done that. I just soak my specialty grains at 155 for 30 minutes, take them out, and tea bag a little, allowing any water...
