    Still Bubbling After 12 Days?

    you are fine, a double IPA needs time, even after the bubbles stop leave it for another week or so.

    First time Saison

    have you thought about using 3711?? ferments colder and is less of a hassle.

    mason jars?

    its odd that ive had a few 22's explode and no growlers. My advice to anyone searching for an answer: pressure in any glass vessel isnt safe. 12,22, growler etc. use PET bottles or go the kegging route.

    mason jars?

    this is what i used and they are safe up to 2.4 volumes of C02 not these which would most likely burst.

    mason jars?

    i continually bottled with growlers (whiskey jugs) for 1.5 years. never ever had a problem, that doesnt sound like russian roullete odds?? ive had 22 oz's go boom a few times. anytime you put pressure in glass its a risk even 12 and 22's. maybe i got extremely lucky i now fill those growlers...

    mason jars?

    i call BS, ive carbed various growlers without any problems. they are fine for bottling.
