I have an Irish red in primary now that started bubbling like it was pissed off within a couple hours of pitching the yeast, so much that I couldn't keep fluid in the airlock, it would just spit it...

You can't really carbonate syrup with yeast, for a number of reasons. First of all, that concentration of sugar will kill the yeast. Second, you generally use a little syrup with a lot of water, so...

Alright, I'm having a hard time imagining a batch size in which a teaspoon of sucrose would be adequate for sweetness, and four cups of maltodextrin would make for less than gelatinous mouthfeel. In...

Maltodextrin contains 4 calories per gram. At your rate of 12.8 Tbps per gallon, that comes out to approximately 13.5 grams of MD per 12oz bottle. That's 54 calories of maltodextrin. 54 is more than...

Not much interest in soda head retention, eh? I was hoping *somebody* would have *something* to say about it.

Well, I tried a more substantial partial mash with 8oz of flaked wheat and 4oz each of...

I've got a half-batch of this mashing right now. This will be my first batch of beer ever (yes, my first batch of beer is an all-grain stout). I'm using the BIAB method, and it seems to be going...

That would work fine, but it's not my point. You can stop the fermentation well enough by sticking the bottles in the refrigerator. The thing that makes me nervous is that sodas are carbonated to two...

Have you successfully used beer bottles? I've used the 12oz glass Coke bottles, which are built like tanks. I wasn't sure if the thinner beer bottles could take the additional pressure of soda.

Okay, the partial-mash root beer is done. It didn't help at all for head retention, but it is a flippin' amazing batch of root beer as far as flavor and body goes. I'll try using a larger quantity of...

The trick is that soda is not fermented dry like beer is. There is generally more fermentable sugar than you need for carbonation, so it will keep fermenting and raising the pressure until you stop...

Okay, so you're using baking yeast. That's supposed to work, but it will have a funky flavor, and it's more likely to be bad than fresh brewer's yeast. I recommend finding some wine yeast, champagne...

4 cups of maltodextrine?! I assume that's for a 5 gallon batch? That comes out to 12.8 tablespoons per gallon. I might have to try that. Does it actually cause some head retention, or just give the...

If there's a really bad smell, there's probably some infection going on. Don't give up, just sanitize everything that touches the root beer and give it another try. If you've been using the same...
