This is one of the many reasons why Austin Homebrew Supply is so amazing. This makes me happy even though I am not the one getting free yeast. Much props to AHS!

+1 to Bobby_M. I found his video very helpful when switching to all grain. Good call on referring to YouTube. There are some great brewing videos on there (and some not-so-great).

What is your recipe? Yes, it will improve with time, but you must be patient. I usually start to take gravity samples around 3-4 weeks in the fermenter and don't touch my bottles until they have...

There is a Home Brewer TV podcast that shows how to make a blow off catcher that puts beer back into the fermenter. I think it just had a tube in half way up a container for blow off and then a tube...

From my experience, there are two ways people make starters:

1. Make the starter the day of to "wake" the yeast up

I'm not really worried about bottle bombs, but I am worried about foaming out of the bottle when I pop the caps. I tried to leave a little more headroom when I bottled, maybe about 1/8 of an inch or...
