I think it was caused by an infection. Most of the beers looked fine, but the last one that I had this problem with was obviously infected, it looked absolutely disgusting. The last two beers I...

I have not, but I plan to whenever I make a Smithwick's again. I've been avoiding making anything that has roasted barley in it, as it dropped the pH too much with my tap water and every beer that...

What to do with braggot, and can I put fruit in the bottle?

Hey guys,

I made my first mead back in the spring, a braggot, and it has now been aging for several months. It's a pretty big braggot, about 10%, and it's about time to bottle it. It tastes...

My experience fermenting S-04 at high temps was not a good one. I made Biermuncher's Oktoberfast, and fermented between 68-70, as that was what temperature my basement was at the time. The beer had...

All dark beers have fizzy, dissipating head

I've made about 11 all grain beers now and I have kegged most of those. They all have a good, foamy head that usually leaves some lacing until the end. The exception is any beer I've made with dark...

It should be going into secondary at day 5?... Or when it's clear? I'm confused now. The instructions say when active fermentation slows down (around day 5) fit airlock, then rack when its clear. ...

I just used it for the first time on Sunday in a trippel, with an OG of 1.080. It was bubbling within 4 hours. By far the fastest I've had so far.
