Give the gelatin a try. Or wait, gravity always works, even in Thailand (so I've heard).

My favorite trick is to name the beer "Unfiltered"

Do you have a chiller? Ideally you'd chill is straight to 68. If you don't have a chiller or if you happen to be somewhere where the groundwater is very warm, that's probably the best you can do.

So it's my guess that your beer is done with the main part of fermentation. The best way to tell is to take a gravity reading and see. The yeast will have an expected attenuation and you can see if...

I agree. I'd give most beers at least 10 days and that's if I'm in a rush.

I know this doesn't answer your question exactly, but you should consider boiling with your hops in a hop bag. That being said, I don't think you need to move things too much to get a good cone...

That amount of roasted barley will not be too noticeable especially at 1 ounce. Many folks use an addition like that to get some color w/o too much flavor. I use Crystal 120 and Chocolate Malt to...

The clarity thing is all about time and gravity letting the yeast fall out. I don't transfer my beers to a secondary, but I used to. Just keep them in the primary for about two to three weeks...

IPAs like this often start to taste really good after about 6 weeks of age on them I've found.

Relax.

It sounds perfectly normal to me. Your main fermentation was probably done around the time you transferred it. It will take some time to clear. There's still some work going on with the...

So it sounds like you are well on your way. 1.018 after 2 days means you've still got a little fermentation left to go. Your sample is cloudy because of all of the yeast still in suspention.

For the formula, you'd calculate based on the total volume in the keggle, so that would include what you leave behind.

Hopefully most of the fermentation work was done before you racked to secondary. Secondary is more of a clean up and clear up. Keeping the beer on the yeast for a little more time will help get the...

So I got 4 of these recently, mine have the white silicone gasket inside - it's a really tight fit to get them shut. What's the trick to get them latched? It can't be that I'm that big of a wuss.
