    Little to nop head.

    no i've been using the potasium metabasulfite solution to wash everything. and especially with the cream ales i would expect quite a good head on it. but nothing. could it be the glass that i'm pouring it into. They are washed with dishsoap but are rinsed after washing. We have no dishwasher.

The first batch i had made i undercorbonated it, by error, so i assumed that the lack of head on it was due to this. That aside it was a great beer. Now that i have opened my first bottle from the batch of...

    Bottled my first batch

    Well i stared and waited for my beer to be clear. The local homebrew store guy said to wait until i can read some newsprint through it. I was ever so anxious to bottle so i made up my priming solution of 2/3 of a cup of corn sugar and added that to my brew all at once then put my brew into...

    No activity.

    well i was hoping it was just a fast ferment. But this being my first brew and my uncanny ability to mess things up had me a little worried. Thank you for your reply. I was planning on sitting on it until tuesday to move it to my secondary.
