Aite so i have a 6 gal gal glass carboy full of *bread yeast* and 7 pounds of Muntons Cedarex A and I soaked some uncracked caramel barley. This brew is brownish black and thick! i tossed about half a can of bread yeast because I'm real poor, but it's only throwin a few bubbles. I've brewed hard juice with this type of yeast before from this can and it was quite tasty and neutral... i put some fuggle pellets in and i put some yellowed branning cross in its got a kinda high note aromatic in it, but i want advice on what dry-hop to use this next week.


i just joined. this is my first batch, but i've gotten a couple kegs at auction - want to take my 15.5 us sankey keg / cut top off, and use as boiler for my 13 gal keg and brew full batches.

Any Sanitary Stainless welders in the DC metro area who work for cheap?

Dude..... please take no offense at this whatsoever--

your brewing techniques are circa 1250 BC, at best.

If you want to make a good batch of beer, I highly recommend Papazian's book, the Complete Joy of Homebrewing, or read Palmer's online book.

You've got some work to do. . .

Bread yeast is not nearly as high-quality as brewer's yeast, so you're going to get a lot of really weird flavors (sour, acid, general bad) and probably weird scum layers on top of your beer. I'm not exactly sure what kind of beer style you were gunning for, but I guess that doesn't matter too much. My advice--check out a how to brew book, and if money is a problem, just use dry brewer's yeast. It only costs 50 cents a package, and it'll give you a much, much higher-quality beer. If you're careful, you can get good quality beer for not a lot of money.

Hell, Munton's dry yeast costs $1.25 at the LHBS.

Yeah, sure, I could get all the aspergillus, histoplasmosis, and candida to ferment my beers for free here along the Illinois River Valley but I'm sure it wouldn't have a desired "unique" flavor to it.

Ok, I'll play along...

Wear the same pair of underwear for a week. Dry hop with them.
