I'd get away from those Brewhouse kits ASAP if you can. I started with those and thought they tasted watery and I couldn't get a head off them if you shook em up first. All grain is definitely the...

I'd add 1007 to that list. Ferments down to 55F, with very clean finish. Use it for all my brews except the more specialized yeast.

Just put the hydrometer in the bucket. Why complicate things and waste good beer?

For every month old the smack pack is, you have to allow one day for the pack to swell. I had a 6 month old pack that I smacked a week early. By the time I brewed, it was swelled just fine. ...

I always thought they did. Anything that's denser than water in the solution should add to your gravity, shouldn't it?

I believe that the Sorbate inhibits further fermentation, making the addition of sweetner for less than dry wines safe in the bottle. If you're making dry wine without a sweetening addition after...

The last wit I made I put 1/2 oz. in at flame out and it turned out really nice. Wouldn't change a thing. I probably wouldn't boil it, just like I wouldn't boil most herbs in a tea.

I'd doubt if a start would have made any difference. That mainly cuts lag time. Yeast multiply exponentially during fermentation. If you're using extract, chances are it's done. Depending on the...

Oh yeah, it's really sad. Thank God for home craftbrewing! Make sure you try out some nice hoppy APAs and IPAs(sierra nevada PA and Dogfish Head 60 min are awesome for hopheads, which I am)

If you're in Ontario, you'll find no microbrews except Anchor Liberty Ale. In other words, basically nothing. Here they even think draught beer is an actual distinct style of beer. Find a good...

Are you deactivating the enzymes in your first runnings while waiting for the batch sparge? I had the same problem, I used to let it sit there in the kettle, but now I heat it up to deactivate...

Moab's a great town and has some nice brewpubs, but it took me awhile to figure out why I wasn't getting drunk :drunk: I guess it means you can just drink more great beer!

How much aeration did you give the wort before pitching? Big beers need big aeration. For a hot mash like that, doesn't sound like you're going to get it down any more.

I'd say it's done. A bubble every few minutes is probably not fermentation, just degassing. You could try to rouse the yeast by gently agitating the fermenter, or by giving it a gentle stir. If...

Why bother with a carboy primary at all? It takes me under a minute to clean a bucket. A carboy? Not so much. IMO, a bucket is just as safe for the beer from a few days to a couple of weeks.

I'd put it in the fridge overnight and take it out in the morning before brewing. Starters, bah! :)

Great, will try 158F for a mash. It's possible my thermometer is a little high as well, so it could actually be a lower temperature then it shows. What a difference from my extract days, when I...

Will try that next time. I guess it will get my boil going sooner as well. I never thought about conversion taking place in the kettle without grain before, but I guess it happens.

Put some rice hulls, 1/2 pound to a pound, in the mash. Either that or get a SS braid. I've never had anything less than a gusher, even with 50% huskless wheat in the mash.

Should I be doing a mash out?

I've been getting extremely low FG lately, like 1.007, with mash temps of 151F. I tried mashing at 155F, and got a FG of 1.01. I think I'm not stopping the conversion when I drain my mash. It's...

Sounds good, but I don't understand why you can't adjust a corona mill crush. I can adjust mine easily. Works great!
