    I just bottled a small batch of wheat beer (1 1/2 gallon) that I added 4oz of honey malt to, made a nice flavor IMO. I say go for it

    Brewing Withdrawals

    I too have not gotten in a brew day this year. I've got everything ready to go... But I'm working 3hrs from home for the next two weeks. So ready to get my next batch rolling

    ABV in range but pre-bottle flavor seems week

    Hmm, I nah if it's a pre pitch gravity you used for your calculation then thats what it should be. Only other thing that comes to mind is if the water wasn't stirred in completely and threw your reading off.

    Did you happen to check your gravity before and after adding water? I'm going to guess your SG suffered.

    Well, you piqued my interest in vine and hop. I'll have to check it out. I've hit up label peelers 3 or 4 times, saves money not having it shipped. They usually have what I'm looking for. I ordered from last for an exact recipe of grain, that was kinda handy, guess my next purchases...

    How much hops and grain do you have on hand?

    Until I have a dedicated space for my brew supplies and equipment I usually have two batches worth standing by for when the planets align. With 4 kids it can be a challenge to pull off a brew day.

    My airlock fell off and i just noticed

    Replace it and let it ride. Open fermenting is a thing. Only way to know if it's good or bad is to wait and see. You might want to consider using a blow off tube next time as well.

    I'm a noob with general questions. Also, ready for a habanero beer!

    Heck yeah, you're only 14 yrs older than me, hard to beat a good deal. I'm enjoying this forum, wish I'd gotten into brewing sooner than this now.
