Yep. That's why you need a blowoff tube sometimes. Is that an empty milk jug your are fermenting in?

Did you calibrate your hydrometer in plain water? Mine is off by about 0.004.

The only difference you might notice is in the hop utilization. If you put most of the fermentables in firts you'll get a slightly lower hop utilization because you have a higher preboil gravity. But...

Yes, you can add chocolate to it. There are lots of ways to do it (cocoa powder in boil, cacao nibs in secondary, chocolate syrups in boil). The way I do mine is by adding cocoa powder at the end...

Bubbling in the secondary is pretty normal. It probably is just some dissolved CO2 being released after transfer. You might also be getting a little more fermentation because you roused the yeast in...

The Wyeast website says that 1010 ferments between 58-74F. If it were me I think I'd shoot for the low to mid 60s.

I think if you were to add 3 lbs of honey and 1 lbs of corn sugar that would be a LOT of simple sugars and you could have some fermentation/flavor issues. I'd probably pick just 1 simple sugar so...

I think this is a RDWHAHB situation for sure. I say let it ride. Might be another 5-6 days before kraussen settles down, no big deal. I bet this turns out great. Next time I'd use a starter...

How much yeast did you pitch originally?
I've found that the keys to proper fermentation are (more or less in this order):
1. Pitch the proper amount of healthy yeast
2. Proper (consistent)...

If you want to use a secondary I'd wait till you have almost reached terminal gravity. Since this is your first time brewing this beer that might be hard to know. But, I bet you'll be safe if you...

Need a little more info about the beer to fully answer the question, but your plan sounds fine. Honey is somewhere between 35 and 40 ppg. Assuming you are doing a 5 gallon batch that is about 7 or 8...

Short answer: yes, you can substitute the rice solids for syrup. It is not a 1:1 substitution though. I don't remember the conversion of the top of my head but I know you'll want to use fewer solids...

Thanks for the input. The problem I had with 1968 is that it flocked out before it was done and I couldn't get it going again. I'd like something that doesn't drop out so fast if the temp drops a...

What are your favorite English yeast strains? I tried 1968 and was very disappointed. I've read that S-04 is not very reliable. I'm looking for a go to English strain that can handle my stouts,...

I prefer my wee heavies a little drier. I'd shoot for an OG near 1.090 and try to get the FG closer to 1.020. I also don't think that is enough yeast. For a 5gal batch I'm guessing you'd need at...

I am still confused about your process. Did you mash with 1.5 gal? or is that the final volume? How was the crush on your grains? What temp did you mash at?

What about a 1-gal starter kit from NB or brooklyn? They are pretty reasonably priced. If he gets hooked the equipment is still useful later for test batches, yeast starters, etc.
