It is ok to add water before fermentation if your OG is 15 points higher than your target. I would make sure to boil it before adding if it is tap water, just to be certain there are no bugs in there.

I think all-grain made a huge difference in my beers. They taste much more like real beer now. I always found my extract brews to be lacking in grain character. I also find it a lot more fun on brew...

I've used smoked chili's in beer before. It turned out great in a stout. Your recipe looks pretty good to me. It's been my experience that hatch chilis aren't very spicy.

It's obviously a cleanliness issue somewhere. Those bugs aren't on there for no reason, they are after something. Might need to clean out the area where you store your stuff too.

As far as glass vs plastic - I would encourage you to go with plastic. Glass carboys are just too dangerous IMO, plus they weigh a ton. I have dropped one before and it was NOT FUN dealing with...

I have it. I have used it on about 10 batches so far. It works great for me. It's straightforward and works well for all grain brewing. I would definitely recommend the 10 gallon size. If you brew...

Do you sanitize the instrument you use to open the bags of hops?

Did you use Lager yeast? 73 degrees is very high for a lager yeast and will probably result in some funky flavors.

Looks ok to me... Could be carbonation or temperature changes in the beer raising some wort proteins and hop particles in to suspension. Are there any funky smells or tastes? If not I wouldn't worry.

Most likely, they will be ready in 3 weeks. Always remember:
