OK so they didn't rise like I expected but I think that is because I screwed up and had the seam side down. When I bake sandwich loaves I slice the tops so that some of the gas can escape and I...

This blonde ale I did finished at 1.003 or 1.004. You wouldn't even know it was a 5.5% beer it tastes so light and crisp.

I have used it many times in the past and knew it was fast but I guess I had forgotten. I have some Pacman yeast I have been using and that takes a good 8-10 days before it's done.

Nottingham yeast is a BEAST!

The krausen is gone, the yeast has almost completely dropped out and the beer went from 1.041 to 1.007 in less than 48 hours! I don't think I have ever seen notty work so fast before.

The longer you let the beer clear before bottling will have an effect on how long it takes to carb but there should still be enough yeast in there to do the job. I have had beers that I left in the...

That is what I did on Monday, I moved it upstairs and also pitched some nottingham but so far nothing. I think you guys might have hit the nail on the head with the gravity reading though. It seems...

I have noticed a small amount on beers that have finished in the past, but not at this level. Combine the large amounts of co2 with the fact that I need to shave off another 8+ points and I was a...

Beer carbonated in the carboy before it was done.

I brewed a 10g batch of beer 2 weeks ago and I split it up among two carboys and pitched my yeast. Everything seemed to be going fine except last week when I tested the gravity, one of the carboys...

so 2 pounds of Corn and .50 pounds of rice? I thought I saw in another comment where you backed off a 1/2 pound of each and replaced with 1 pound corn sugar. Also would corn sugar would give the...

I think they are fine and since they are just solely for bittering they really don't impart much if any flavor. I was even tempted to dry hop with cascade but decided against it, I do think it would...

Just made this tonight but used WL004. I undershot my gravity a bit and had a post boil of 1.052 and used cascade as my bittering hops.

I saw that BCS460 and almost **** a brick, that thing looks awesome and the price seemed pretty reasonable plus I think it would be easier to program.

Electric or gas for 25 gallons?

I want to build a system based on the brutus 10 but use 25 gallon pots instead. I like the idea of going electric but wouldn't think a 5500W element would bring that to a boil. So then the question...

I used organic hallertau and Notty it seems to have worked out well. If Kevin is going to the next grain pickup I will bring a bottle and let him be the judge. :mug:

I only use a blowoff tube if I am at close to the 6 gallon mark on the buckets, if you really only have 5 gallons you would have to have a boatload of krausen to make it to the top. The safe way...
