Quit messing with is so much and let it do it's thing. Sit it on top of a towel in case you get some blow off.

I never **** with my carboys once I see they're fermenting.

I would keep it room temp if you're going to use it soon (3-4 weeks). Just a cool, dry place.

Get a food saver and some bags at Costco or a liquidation store by you. It'll come in handy when you want to buy bulk hops too! :)

Hmm--I think I'll try it and see how it works. If I want to build a station I'll just copy Revvys model!

Excited to try this out.

Do I need to build a setup like that though?

Can I just clip it to my counter and stick a bucket under it and do a little at a time by hand?

Anyone use this malt mill?

I have been getting my grain crushed at my LHBS, but I'm only getting about 60 efficiency. I suspect my crush has a lot to do with this as my temps are accurate, my thermometer is calibrated, and I...

I don't think it'll spoil but it definitely won't be fresh. I'd vacuum seal it if I were you. Keep it in a cool dry place in a container with as little O2 as possible.

My Hefeweizen Turned Out A Little Thin And Light--why?

My first all grain batch was a Hefeweizen. It has a nice flavor, but it's more subdued than I want. It's got a nice tartness, a tiny hop flavor, and really nice estery profiles like Franziskaner.

Haha. Tomatoes in the fridge are a sin. I am storing my hops in the freezer though. I have pellet hops, vacuum sealed, in a glass container.

I'll let you know how my beer tastes.

How is that?

I've always used liquid yeast and I'm about to try my first beer with dry yeast.
