So, I wanted to know if adding fruit or fruit juice before pitching the yeast will be different if I added it about three weeks after fermentation already started. I...

    I need help

    4-5 oz of dextrose, 5gal batches. I might try those carb tabs. Yes, FG vs OG is pretty much how I expect it to be. Temperature might be a little bit too hot, as I live in a really hot weather and humid place. Bottles are stored in around 78F, and opened cold. The bottles are new. I dont...

    So as the title says, I need help. Most batches I make, end up being gushers, literal exploding-when-opening beers.

    Cinnamon/Vanilla Porter

    So I had an idea for this "Girl Scout Cookie" type of recipe and came up with this. Not sure if it has too much stuff in it, perhaps it might do well without the Cinnamon.

    Coffee Blonde Ale recipe... thoughts?
