Give it some time. Saison yeast sometimes ferment in stages. I leave mine in primary for about 3 weeks, then rack to secondary. I've seen third and fourth waves of fermentation take place up to 4...

I think I'll follow jkarp's advice and run off some wort, heat it up and add it back.

I was using my 1500w element to warm up a mash. Some of the grain must have gotten stuck in it because after about a minute of stirring I started smelling and seeing smoke come out of the mash. I...

Is 2gal per hour too hard of a boil?

I use two electric heat sticks to boil. Since I switched from propane, I've been having trouble hitting gravities and getting weird efficiencies. I tested my system tonight and found out I'm boiling...

I think rye is a fine idea. It won't hurt.

At 1lb the crystal is probably ok. But I wouldn't excede 1lb.

Black patent will add color, but basically no flavor. I think the RB will add a little...

If this is for 5gal then I agree with dcp, way too much crystal. You'll be lucky to hit 75% attenuation with just base malt at that gravity. If you start throwing in crystal, your attenuation will...

I've looked at those recipes dozens of times but have never brewed one. I've never been convinced that they will clone the beer; they seem too simple. I'd love to hear if someone else tries though.

I used it in my RIS (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f85/pre-thanksgiving-ris-208446/) (OG=1.103), and it took it down to 1.025 in 6 days. I didn't rehydrate either.

Wiki page on commercial bottle-conditioned beers?

Lately, I've been looking around the web for information on commercial beers that are bottle conditioned so that I can try to culture the yeast from them for homebrewing. There are a lot of...

I agree!

It's been about 5 months since I last brewed a mild. I think I'll move it up on my schedule. Thanks.

Orfy's mild is great and I've made it three times. But now I own How to British...

I brewed this back in January. I replaced the Centennials with more willamette. I hit the gravity values perfectly. I've never had this beer commercially, but my god, it is good.

FG and attenuation of dubbels

I made a dubbel about a month ago. What a PITA.

I used WLP500 with a healthy vial of yeast. I made a 1.5L starter and pitched it on a 1.068 beer. It fermented poorly; only went down about 40%. So...

Why to rack a red but not a lambic?

A couple times I've read that it is a good idea to rack a flanders red after primary fermentation (even if the 1 includes the bugs), but a lambic shouldn't be racked.

Anyone have a good idea of...
