    I might of made an oopsie..?

    I'm from Newfoundland, temperatures right now drop to freezing cold over night and my basement was around 4-5 degrees Celsius last time I checked! Is this okay for cold crashing?

    I might of made an oopsie..?

    The guy at my local brew shop recommended that after primary fermentation is complete I add isinglass to carboy then siphon my beer to the carboy and stir gently then let it sit for a week before bottling! So what should I do next time? Just wait for primary fermentation to finish then bottle...

    I might of made an oopsie..?

    Also this time i noticed after siphoning to the carboy i already have a inch of sediment built up in the bottom! I put the cap on the end of the racking cane.. Do you think it would be okay to double carboy the brew and transfer it back into the bucket after a week and then back to the carboy...

    I might of made an oopsie..?

    Okay so today was the transfer day for my third batch of brew, I transferred it from the primary to secondary fermenter and added the fining solution!

    Are you supposed to see bubbles during carbonation process?

    I dont have a dish washer, and this is what the guy at my brew store reccomended to me, actually on the bag of corn sugar I bought it said put 1 1/3 cup aside for priming! I made a 23L batch

    Clarifying homebrew beer question!

    So when you add the gelatin after fermenting, do you stir it into your brew or just poor? I feel like it would be a bad idea to stir it! Unless you transfer it to the carboy, then add the gelatin, stir and cold crash? Let it sit for a week for sediment to fallout then proceed to bottle?

    Are you supposed to see bubbles during carbonation process?

    I bottled my 2nd batch of beer about a week ago, added the recommended amount of priming sugar 1 1/3 cup and its been sitting in my closet at about 24 degrees Celsius but I do not see any bubbles forming inside the brew or at the head of the bottle! It looks flat still to me! I'm kind of worried...

    Clarifying homebrew beer question!

    Do yo need to have it at exactly 150 degrees? I do not have a digital thermometer, just a glass thermometer that goes up to 55 degrees Celsius is there a work around for this if you don't have a digital thermometer?

    How long is it safe to let wine sit in the secondary fermenter?

    The wine I make ends up being about 6 inches from the opening of the 23L carboy do you think that's too much head space?
