    REALLY strong ale after primary fermentation

    ok, so my first home brew so far seems fairly successful. after 7 days i am now transfering batch to pressure barrel. i had a taste (which seems good enough), but also tastes as though it has an incredibly high alcohol percentage. the ale ought to be about 4.5% but seems more like a wine or...

    Massive pressure but no airlock activity

    hello! my first batch appears to be fermenting well enough. but my 5 gallon plastic fermenting bucket looks ready to explode and there is no airlock activity. im using a plastic s-shape airlock, and there is no block because it bubbles when i press down on the lid. so why is co2 not easily...
