When I try to convince people to brew, I always point out how favorably it compares to golf. Cheaper, doesn't require an entire day away from the family, less frustrating. . .

Arguing about differences in taste

I saw my first pumpkin beer of the year today--- Brooklyn's Post Road. Today is August 6, and most of the country is experiencing a heat wave.

Something to remember when there isn't a pumpkin...

Chelsea Brewing Company in NYC

I went to this place a while back for a few beers. It was beautiful-- right on the Hudson. And the beer was pretty good--- I liked their imperial stout. So my wife and I were back in NYC and went...

no, 5 oz of prime sugar does not make it sweet. But it is a little above the 10% max for my yeast, so I was wondering if adding more yeast would ferment too much sugar and cause bottle bombs.

Is there any risk of creating bottle bombs? If the yeast I used quit fermenting at a certain point, and I use something else, might it ferment a whole lot more than I want it to?

oh, so that's my problem, then, huh? I need to get some other yeast and add it to the bottles. Dumb mistake.

I used wyeast 1056. It said the yeast tolerance was 10%. This beer is actually under 11 (maybe 10.5). Would that be enough to kill it? I thought going a little above its tolerance risked off...

didn't carbonate

2 and 1/2 months in the bottle. 11% abv, dark brown beer. tastes great. Not a hint of carbonation.

Is it likely that the yeast died? It was only in secondary for 6 weeks.

What should I do? ...

Turned out pretty good. Still young, but, I think, pretty close to PSM. I threw an ounce of Palo Santo chips in the secondary for 3 weeks.
