So I dry hopped with 50grams target after decanting to a fresh FV and left it 7 days then bottles. Starting gravity 1.041 end gravity 1.08. Tried it yesterday and it's fab, really fresh and floral. I bottled some before dry hopping for a comparison, and without hops it has no body, very little...
I have a youngs pale ale kit, and ive heard it can be a bit bland, so i wanted to dry hop it with target hops.
Can anyone give any advice on when and how much to use? I was going to ad them at the end of primary fermentation and leave them 3 days or so before bottling.
What do you...
Ive got some 'better brew bandit beer', a desperados style lager but with an ale yeast.
I want to cold crash it to get a really clear beer-is it worth putting it in the porch which will probably be 4-7 degrees C or is that not cold enough?
How long would I leave it before bottling? 2-3...
lovely, well i think ill leave it in there till 20th or so which would be 16 days or so, then transfer to my bottles and leave them in the dark.
I think its quite airtight (enough to stop anything coming in), but not enough to carbonate, as the gas does hiss out.
Would you advise an airlock...
its the 25 litre fermenting bucket with lid
Im presuming it just hisses out under the edges when the pressure gets high enough?
if i shine a torch down the lid you can see a few bubbles joining the krausen at the top, though not very clearly.
Hi guys, jut had a few questions I was hoping you could answer!
Is it okay to leave the beer for a few extra days after all the bubbling has stopped? It looks set to stop just as I start exams so don't want the haste of bottling and revising at the same time, but do t wavy the beer ruined!
