Ok guys I have two questions for ya. I made two different beers from kits. One was modeled after Serria Nevada the other off of new castle
Question 1: With the Serria Nevada style beer. I am using a two stage fermentation and this beer requires the addition of dry Hops on day 4 of fermentation. So I added the hops on schedule then waited for consistent hydrometer readings and transferred carefully to the second tank. I am getting ready to bottle it but I noticed that there is some things floating around at various levels of the tank. I think it is the hops but I would like to know if this is normal?
Question 2: With the Newcastle style ale I pitched the Yeast in about 20 hours ago and I just checked on it for the first time since I pitched the yeast and there is a head on it, but it does not appear to be a very tall head and I donít really see much activity in the tank. The last time I did this type of beer two things were different and it had a very active high head. 1 I was using a 5 gal Carboy vs a 7 gal that I am using now; 2 I used a different strain of yeast. Both used liquid yeast. In any case should I be concerned?
Thanks for your help
