It's just done. 1.020 isn't that far out of range. However.... you should *never* aerate the beer once it has started fermenting. It will probably taste alright for the first couple of weeks, but...

Even if it is mold (which it probably isn't) you can just skim it off the top. The wort is too thick for it to get past the surface. It's just yeast and/or bubbles, though.

I'm not sure what goes wrong. I had one that was extremely bland... lacked any body or bitterness. Might as well had been drinking iced tea. I had one that was waaaay too malty. I'm guessing I...

Which style haunts you the most?

I love bitters. There is something so right about this simple style of beer. So why can't I manage to make one. I have tried three batches of bitter this year. All of them are simple recipes. ...

Here's what concerns me... and correct me if I'm wrong. You said you got your kit "the other day" and it's already bottled? Did you skip the fermentation stage?

I use oxyclean to clean my carboys every time. Just soak overnight and rinse well. Never needed to scrub. Make sure it's in a sink or bathtub, though. The bubbles will overflow overnight.

I had a similar problem. Ruined 3 or 4 batches before I figured out it was from the rubber in the keg and not an infection. Replaced all the gaskets and never had a problem since.

Wormwood is a common ingredient in fortified wines. Vermouth has as much wormwood as absinthe. Of course, I didn't find this out until real absinthe did nothing for me and I did a little research.

Was this obvious to everyone but me???

When I was a kid... maybe 9 or 10, I ordered a "malt" thinking it was the same thing as a "shake." It was awful. At least by my standards back then. I'm 31 now and yesterday I decided I would try...

I'm not sure this would be more efficient or better than shaking. The bubbles would be too large to make that much of a difference. Maybe if you attach a length of tubing with an aeration stone. ...

Sue Bee Honey

I decided to make a Mead this weekend and didn't want to pay $6/lb for honey, so I got 15 lbs of Sue Bee from Costco for $21. Fair price. I noticed that they have a web site (who doesn't?) and...

I set mine at 11-14 psi depending on beer style. It's carbonated in about 5 days. I leave it at that pressure until the keg runs dry. I use 7ft of 3/16 ID tubing and that seems to balance it just...

For regular 5 gallon batches, a 5 gallon cooler is fine. Just don't expect to do a barleywine with it. I usually use between 11-14 lbs of grain and haven't had any problems in my 5 gallon.
