    So... bad to leave Wyeast packet out?

    Temps at 68f, its an english brown ale, and I used liquid Wyeast European Ale Yeast (i think thats the name), from the LHBS. Ill pop it open and check it out, this is only my 3rd brew, but the past 2 the airlock has been goin nuts, maybe the bucket has an air leak :D P.S What is a Fussel?

    So... bad to leave Wyeast packet out?

    Still no bubbles.... Yes I aerated, im afraid that I might have added the yeast when the wort was too hot perhaps? It was about 80f on my thermometer but... im beginning to think its not accurate +/- 10 degrees... shall I throw this batch out? Or is it possible to add more yeast? Thanks for...

    So... bad to leave Wyeast packet out?

    Hey guys, so I accidentally left a packet of Wyeast liquid yeast at room temp for 3-4 hours before I broke the nutrient packet... could the yeast be all dead? Its been 48 hours and no bubbling out of the airlock... my past 2 beers I made bubbled within 24 hours or so.

    Few questions from a noob

    Thanks for the replies, I do have a hydrometer and know how to use it. I should have mentioned that. About the part where it says rack the trub, the reason why it is confusing is because the way the recipe reads, it seems to say to transfer to secondary until finished fermenting, and then rack...

    Only 4.2 Gallons of beer for a 5 Gallon recipe...Will it taste bad?

    Oh, adding the rest of the water in while bottling will be ok? I plan to transfer to a secondary maybe in 5 days or so, should it be ok to add the rest of the water then? Thanks for the help!

    Only 4.2 Gallons of beer for a 5 Gallon recipe...Will it taste bad?

    Hey guys! Well I brewed my first batch of beer yesterday with my friend. As we were boiling the wort, we had an unfortunate accident where we contaminated about 2 gallons of water that was sitting in the primary... so we tried to boil/cool water as fast as we could before the wort finished...

    Should I keep my hydrometer in the primary?

    Ok! Looks like I will extract samples. I am planning to use a secondary so from what ive read, I will probably transfer in a weeks time or once it has stabilized. Thanks again for the help!!!

    Hello! I am new to homebrewing, my buddy and I just picked up a pretty decent kit from our local home brewing store (The Cellar in Seattle, WA). We just got the wort in the primary today, we are attempting to make a light wheat ale, seems to be an easy beginner beer. Anyways, just...
