Spread it out to about a 1/2 inch thick. It shouldn't be in the oven long enough for it to stick to the pan really. You're just looking to drive off some of the moisture and brown the top of the...

No, but it is the corporate lust for ever-increasing relentless profits. I typically don't give a place a chance in the OP's case. I'd just go in and close the account. I'll tell them why if they...

Lactose does add gravity, especially a lb of it. I'd assume you added the lactose after you took your OG reading? It does not ferment at all, but I'd still expect that grain bill to finish out at...

Yeah, don't do that. I don't care if your temps were pefect. 3 day old beer almost always tastes like sewage. Yeast make a big mess of things in the first week and then they come back in like good...

Thank god for my sun porch (more of a covered deck, really). Even with all the windows open and both doors, it gets a nice toasty warm 45-50 degrees in there during the boil!

Good point. I think I figured it out.

OP - You're using your hydrometer wrong (I think). If you're measuring your gravity and it is at 1.040, that is the specific gravity of the solution. It...

It's my understanding that you don't ferment root beer- well, not all the way. Your final gravity should be fairly close to your OG. All the yeast is doing is converting a small amount of the sugar...

Did anyone participate in Homebrew Alley VI yesterday, 1/29/12 in Brooklyn?

This was the first homebrew competition I've entered and I managed 3rd in the specialty category for my oaked vanilla whiskey porter 'Muddy Dumptruck'. I was pretty ecstatic about it overall. Also...

Oh, yeah - WAIT longer. That trub will compact much more over another week or two. You could also cold crash it if you have the capability. That will help to settle a lot of things out too.
