    No more bubbles in my airlock

    that all makes a lot of sense. I do have my OG recorded, so I will just have to take a few samples to check my gravity now. Thank you for the help guys. It is appreciated

    No more bubbles in my airlock

    After my beer sat in my Primary for about 10 days, the recipe calls for 2 weeks primary and 1 week secondary, then it stopped giving me the bubbles showing in my airlock. I changed it to my secondary, mostly because I want to see how much it helps with clarity, and I still have no bubbles...

    Got a hose infected

    I agree. It is always better to be safe than sorry. A $2 hose vs. possibly losing an entire batch of beer, I'll take a new hose any day of the week.

    re carb question

    I just got home and opened up a bottle to double check everything, and it was good to drink. when i said 12 weeks earlier, that was quite an understatement. i remember brewing this beer before christmas, and then bottling it on time without any problems. i opened it up after a 4 week period...

    re carb question

    This is a style of beer that I have made before. The first time I made it, it was carbed fine with 3 or 4 weeks. This batch has been in bottles for about 12 weeks. I have not poured it out because I thought there might be a way to save it. It is an asahi extract kit. I do not know the fg/og on...

    re carb question

    I made some beer recently and after I left it in the bottles for more than enough time, it did not carb enough. At my local brew store the guy told me I can open the bottles and put a small amount of priming sugar into each bottle and reseal them. I have no clue how much to add though. Any...

    cloudy wheat beer?

    that makes sense about it being more cloudy as it's chilled. i prefer my beer cold, the colder the better usually for me, and it does seem a little bit more cloudy as it's colder. thank you for the help, this forum is still my first go to place for questions and help.

    cloudy wheat beer?

    i made up a batch of a wheat beer, but once it was completed and i got to open up my bottles, it's cloudy when i pour it. i don't know if it is normal or if something went wrong, but i can't see through the beer. i haven't had a wheat beer in a while, so i don't know if it tastes the right way...

    One step sanitizer and bottling

    that does sound kind of weird. i don't know if i would use it either. is it a good idea to put your bottles in the oven? that would worry me, but i'm new at this. i'm curious to see what everybody else says also. i know that the sanitizer i used for my bottles was just to swirl it around in...
