I am not at home, so I don't have my recipe with me. I'll post the entire recipe, when I get back home. I do recall that it was around 4-6 pounds of sugar, I think.

The haha was aimed at the not having a clue. Can I pour the SG sample back in, with wine? I mean, taking samples takes a bit of the good stuff and I'm starting out with only a gallon, in the first...

OOPS! I meant bottling at 9-12 days! Huge typo, there. Hard to get a steady 3-day SG at 6 days, when I don't start reading it until day 6. Drank 2 25's of the 2 week in the bottle Lager, yesterday...

Actually, I was being careful not to upset them, when I bottled. Too late for that, now.

Irish Stout carbonation

I bottled a Cooper's Irish Stout batch, 3 weeks ago, today. It tastes great, and is a bit "stouter tasting" than either Guinness or Murphy's, which is a plus for all of us. The problem is that it has...
