I checked again on another IBU calculator and it said 1 oz would get me 36. I'm pretty good at math but I'm not familiar with any of these formulae. I'll look it up and check it again, could be fun!

Planning for my first homebrew beer, could use a learned opinion.

I want to make just a 2 gallon batch, so I'm copying a kit from Northern Brewer (Dry Irish Stout) and scaling it. Also, I added a bit of honey. I'll use the same instructions from the kit as far as...

Thanks everyone. I'll keep my eyes peeled for hinge top bottles or just leave it in 2 litres. I hereby promise not to put it in wine bottles, and to buy a capper at some point.

Well I'm talking about plastic 2 litre soda bottles and I like to be a little more classy than that. Maybe I will just keep them in there, but for reference, can a wine bottle take the pressure if...

is it safe to put already carbonated cider in wine bottles?

I'm very cheap and I don't want to spring for a bottle capper or hinge cap bottles. Can I carb in 2 litre plastic bottles and than put them in wine bottles? As long as I keep them cool after...

I wasn't sure but I assumed that less than 1.000 meant nothing left to ferment. I just went below to figure out how much I needed to add. I hadn't really thought of why I wanted to go for a specific...

Lemon zest is blocking the top of my little carboy.

I'm making a lemon ginger mead and just put it in secondary. I decided to do the augmenting in secondary since I'm making two different types (other one is tamarind and lemon grass). I hadn't really...
