I agree with this 100%. Of all the things that can go wrong, this would be the least of my worries for a stout.

Yeah, it would be helpful if you posted your OG, FG, and IBU. Generally, Irish Reds have little to no hop flavor or aroma, so you may want to reconsider the late hop additions. On the other hand,...

Brown sugar can be added any time during the boil. I've never used it in beer - only for cider. Don't expect to get much of a flavor contribution from it. Most of it will ferment and will impart...

I bought two 5 cu ft Kenmore freezers from Sears. Paid about $150 each. I used one as a regular freezer and one as a fermentation chamber/keezer, rigged to a Johnson temp controller. Both freezers...

Personally, I'd be surprised (and impressed) if you could tell the difference between the two. Unfortunately, there's no good way that I can think of to test that theory.

^^^ This. In my case, I use a hop spider, so I lose some liquid to the hop gunk left in the kettle. The amount will vary depending on the amount of hops in my boil, but I probably never lose 1/2...

Yes, cover your carboy or keep it in a dark place. When light strikes the iso-alpha acids, it will get skunky.

I only "conditioned" my aluminum brew kettle once - before the first time I used it 4 years ago.

As for the boil timer, I start timing after the hot break. If I'm doing a 60 minute boil, I wait...

I can't tell from the descriptions whether or not $1500 is a good deal. What I can tell you is that I've been brewing for 5 years (all grain for 4) and I'm sure I haven't spent over $1000 on...

The beer is average and the brewery is small, but you get a few free samples and can go next door for free samples at the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory.

You want to leave the beer on the yeast until your active fermentation is done. Since it doesn't seem like yours is done, definitely leave it for now. Many people don't use a secondary at all. This...

I don't think any of those things would kill your yeast or prevent fermentation. High temps (75F) during the first few days of fermentation may cause off flavors, but would definitely ferment. ...

I'm concerned about your gravity. 1.027 sounds high for a 1.050 beer after 5 days. I'd expect you to be below 1.020 anyway. If your ambient temperature is below 68 degrees F at your fermenter, I'd...
