If it isn't settling when it comes time to bottle, the hops debris will settle out in the bottle. However, if the cloudiness is due to chill haze, it may not go away completely.

It's funny too because I'll go into the store and see a new DFH I haven't tried, read the label, and decide it sounds good. I...

Seeing how you realistically need at least two consecutive hydrometer readings over several days, I can't see how you can be certain fermentation is complete right now. But, it's possible...

Just an update:

Last night I decided I was going to use my other bottling bucket and probably get rid of the bleached one (something I was trying to avoid.) I left the bucket with the top on and...

Well that's a little piece of mind. I really hope it's not detrimental. I've considered using a different bucket, but at the same time I'm thinking it might be fine? I'd hate to ruin the batch...

I think this could work, but you'd lose beer in the process. While a lot of alcohol would evaporate, you'd also lose some water along with it which could lead to some unbalanced flavors in the...

I used a mild acidulated bleach solution (2tbsp each. of vinegar + bleach/5gal. water) to clean my bottling bucket after a slight infection I had a little while ago. The bucket was left to soak for...

If you're worried, make a starter.

I don't think you'll have a problem with an OG that low. I've used that yeast before and I think you're good.

Maybe someone else can shed some light on...

It's interesting because I've brewed JZ's Mild Ale before with an OG 1.036 and he doesn't recommend a starter in his book.

However, going to Mr. Malty and plugging in the same gravity for the same...

While I did enjoy this beer, I much prefer an Old Rasputin or Stone RIS over a Bitches Brew. Rasputin, especially, is ever so much more complex: the DFH doesn't even come close.

woah, step away from the fermenter!

Bottle in 2 more weeks and report back 2 months after that.
