    Force carbonation, too much foam

    Just to add my experience - I've served after just about an hour using greatly dialed-back adjustable tap. It is no where near perfect - fighting the development of a lot of foam, and yes a bit undercarbed (because of the foaming), but wouldn't call it grossly undercarbed. But that's probably...

    Should I wash my yeast.

    I have pitched directly onto a yeast cake left in a fermenter I had just drained to the bottling bucket. Other than still having to bottle it was great.

    Adding DME to account for too much volume

    Have the results now - beer came out really tasty. Probably too dark because I scorched the added dme a bit. If I have to do again I'll use a double boiler. Hopefully won't have to, because it is taking chances. Better to be lucky than good.

    Green witch label

    Really appreciate the feedback. I've fiddled around a bit more and come up with this: I'll probably fiddle a little bit more since still have a couple weeks to bottling day!

    Adding DME to account for too much volume

    So obviously I couldn't leave well enough alone and added it. I can tell you all are shaking your heads and smacking your foreheads, but it was just gnawing away at me like an itch I couldn't scratch. Thanks for your thoughts Yooper, and thanks for the recipe. Btw, the yeast (from 1.5l...

    Adding DME to account for too much volume

    I just put together a Yooper's Ruination clone recipe (1lb of 20L caramel, 8lbs DME, etc.). According to Yooper's recipe it should have a SG of 1.077. In my excitement over my new 10gal kettle, I forgot that in my stovetop tests it wouldn't boil without the lid on, so I had put in about 6 gal...

    Green witch label

    Doing a Yooper's Ruination clone this week subbing in Centennial-type since tough to get the real thing for a decent price. Anyway, calling it Old Green Witch IPA after a nearby town (Old Greenwich). The "witch" is Dean Yeagle's "mandy" character, I just spent some time in GIMP coloring it the...

    5 year old hefe...

    Just to add on my results to a similar topic, I found about 15 hefe's I made 13 months ago in a room temp closet and results after chilling were not good. They were awesome at 6 months though. Guess you have to slow those yeast down in the fridge to keep that long.

    Storing DME

    I use those orange buckets from home depot. About 25 lbs fit into each. Have been brick-free for a year.

    Show Us Your Label

    npauley88 - my deepest apologies, but I thought your "brown victory" post was a continuation of jimmayhugh's post above yours, taking "wrong" to a whole new level. On the other hand, jimmayhugh - there's your next label if you want to push the envelope!

    Bronck's Brewery - Label Design

    Suggest taking out the second "(then known as New Amsterdam)" I like the picture; will these both fit on a bottle?

    Apfelwein label

    Quick design. I'll update if any changes are made. First Apfelwein; kinda worried about it because used cane sugar, and probably not enough. Just put it in the carboy, though, so I guess I could add more. If it's no good I'll try it again because it was fun to make, and follow Ed Wort's...

    1st Label for Wedding Favor

    Instead of exporting from inkscape, I've had good luck with zooming in and taking an alt-printscreen,then pasting into paint and saving as jpg. Might try that and see if you like it converting that way.
