Tested tonight and I'm already close to my FG. Sitting at 1.012 right now and while having a hint of clove it's pretty smooth for the most part. Lagering should clean some of that up I hope.

I just got back from the welding shop where the guy talked me into re-filling my 5lb tank with a mixture of 75/25 Nitrogen/Co2. I decided to start to google it and found that everyone is saying that...

Zero Airlock Activity on 1st Lager

So I brewed my first lager kind of hastily on Saturday. Aside from just having room in a fridge to ferment I didn't read too much into it and now I'm paying for it. Here's my current situation.

I've seen people making something called Skeeter Pee or something like that? It's basically what someone above said, sugar water and yeast. I've considered giving it a try.

Flavor loss when using Gelatin for Finning

Should I expect any flavor loss when using gelatin as a fining in my keg?
I know it will drag anything in suspension to the bottom and this would include any hops flavor as well right?

Follow-up: Am I going to lose any flavor by dropping this stuff out of suspension in my beer? I'm worried it will take my dry hoppines with it.

From what I've heard, leaving it on the yeast cake isn't really a bad thing as previously thought. It's more about the commercial size batches that they worry about, not the home brew small batches....
