Partial mash. Target FG is 1.012 per Jamil's recipe. Seems fine to me.
I was mistaken in my earlier post thinking it was much drier than the recipe, it's actually quite close.

2 year old Oud Bruin questions

A couple years ago I brewed JZ's Flanders Brown Ale/Oud Bruin and, as it goes, life happened. The beer was left sitting in my parents' basement in secondary (after pitching bugs) for a very long...

EDIT:

It's possible the S-05 is just starting now...
Also, maybe take another gravity reading in a couple days to see if anything happened.

How do you store your yeast?

It's difficult to have sterile wort at pitching time. In fact, very difficult. The point of sanitizer is to eliminate as much bacteria/wild yeast as possible, but it doesn't kill them all. What's...

Excess clarity?


Haha, just kidding. Irish Moss won't change the flavor, at least not that much; I bet it'll be fine. Your beer should be super clear!

A couple of my IPA's developed a grassiness after only 7 - 10 days @ 63 - 68 degrees. I cut back my drop hop time to 5 days and I'm happier with the results. I've never gone longer than 10 days...

You could just use a blowoff tube on the 5 gal. and say "screw it" to whatever is lost. Not all fermentations are so insanely vigorous that you lose a ton of beer.

What kind of yeast are you...

I also agree that if read from the same spot each time it really shouldn't matter. The difference would be noticeable when comparing notes with another brewer though.

Unless, for some reason, beer hydrometers are calibrated differently... I'm not sure of this though.

OP:

1. Yes, it is normal. Fermantaion tends to slow down considerably after the first 48 - 72 hours. Continue to monitor and keep your temperature in check.
