So thanks for the advice and reassurance. I took a gravity reading and it is currently down to 1.008. Like I said before I didn't mix the wort very well and got a totally wacko OG. Is there a way to...

I'm not too certain about the OG. I tried the recipe from Brewing Classic Styles and that was the number in the book - it wasn't very clear as to when to add it. The guy at my brew store said to add...

Not sure what the OG was, I failed to mix the wort well enough and I got a reading of 1.132. The recipe says OG should be 1.072. I pitched the yeast on Monday and took a reading last night and it was...

Should I pitch more yeast to avoid stalled fermentation?

I took a stab at Jamil's Belgian golden strong ale. I added the 3lbs of cane sugar during the boil but am now beginning to question if that may have been a poor decision. I was listening to The...

Wort questions

After my OG reading was a 1.136 I realized I didn't mix the wort together with the water as well as I should have. You can even see two distinct shades of brown when looking at the fermenter (dark on...

Saison Fermentation Temp Question

So I brewed a saison a month ago (OG - 1.048) and it hit its FG (1.006) on Fathers Day. I didn't use the "Brewing Classic Styles" recipe but I was hoping to gradually raise the temp to 80 or so...

I am not certain as to how current it is but the BJCP style app I have on my phone says strong versions of this style (6.5%-9.5%) should be entered as a Belgian Specialty Ale if you look in the...

2012 Chimay Grande Reserve

Does anyone know if this is any different than the standard grande reserve (blue)? I haven't been able to find anything online that gives a definite answer. Also, would this significantly improve if...

Is a ring in the bottleneck necessarily a sign of infection?

I brewed an oatmeal stout 6+ months ago but it tasted bad so I put it aside to see if it would taste better down the line. I went recently to grab a bottle and noticed a ring around the top of the...

Thanks, y'all.

How long would be too long to age/cellar this beer? Should I worry too much about losing some of the hop characteristics?

If you purchase beer cold should you keep it cold?

I'm thinking of buying the 2013 Bigfoot but it is in the refrigerated section. If my intention is to save the bottles for a few years, can I keep them in the basement or will letting them fall back...

So when is Samichlaus in its prime?

I found a few 2010 bottles on a shelf at the local Bevmo and bought 2 of them. A few months earlier I bought 2 of the 2012 bottles and tried one. I wasn't impressed with the 2012 bottle but I thought...

Agent - It wasn't flat but it was too carved either

Revvy - thanks for the response. I opened one just to be sure there was some type of carbonation happening. A beer I made recently didn't carb...

I just took the first gravity reading since pitching the yeast and it's at 1.019 right now. I gave it a taste and it was a little yeasty but it wasn't bad at all. I'm hoping it turns out well

Thanks for the reassurance.

I have been keeping an eye in it since I got home. The smell is already gone and it's back at 63 degrees. Is it odd that it would smell that way for such a short period...

To answer both questions, I mixed the sugar into water and it was an oatmeal stout. I've had a few since I bottled it about 6 weeks ago. It's definitely carbonated more than I would like, but it...
