Quite the ruckus :D

I usually just leave my "normal" gravity beers in the primary the entire time. Beers that are getting dry hopped, have fruit additions, are getting bulk aged, etc go into a...

Thread necro, but since I thought this was an interesting topic (as it seems like I had actually experienced the "autolysis boogeyman,") I figured I would post it up.

Interesting! I second the idea of making a reproduction if the yeast can be cultured.

Yep, I think I'm going to bottle it and forget about it for a while. I don't have a lagering fridge, but it can stay in my cellar at least.

Now that I think about it, this is a possibility too. The airlock got low at least once...not entirely dry, but it may not have been completely airtight. I've always read that oxidation gives a...

Yeah, I was pretty surprised when I tasted it to be honest. I left two other beers in the primary for nearly as long before due to another extended bout of laziness/low interest, and they were some...

Yes, boiling did the trick all right. The batch of caramel cider/graff with the wort boiled came out great! It has a nice cider taste, a bit tart, but with a slightly...

You'll be fine. I had two beers stay in primary for even longer than that last year due to life's insanities...when I finally got around to bottling them, they turned out great.

I'll admit, I did not take an OG. I guess I must have felt it wasn't necessary , since the sugar content of the concentrate should have been a known variable. Maybe Welches grew super grapes last...

I put a small space heater in the closet with the wine, and got it up to 72 degrees now. I gave the wine a gentle swirl for a few minutes as well just in case the yeast needed some rousing.

Yep, I'm pretty sure that's what did the 2nd batch in as well. I applied some of my ideas here (mainly the carmelized malt) to a batch of Graff that should be about ready to bottle. So, I'll soon...
