    summer ale

    I need a really good summer ale recipe. I want something that my in-laws and other non real beer drinkers will enjoy. Also something that I can have 6,8 or 10 of, on these hot summer days. Any ideas? PS. Not an all grain recipe. I am not quite there yet. Todd

    Should I rack again?

    I racked an American Wheat to the secondary 5 days ago. There was some pretty healthy secondary fermentation for a couple days and it has now ceased. there is a lot of stuff on bottom. Should I rack the beer off of this to finish clarifying or let it stay. I figure that it will stay on the the...

    Am I OK? rack to early?

    Yes the "Krausen" as you call it was pretty healthy. I guess that I was concerned because the OG was so high, and I thought that this is going to take for ever to ferment. thanks for the re-assurance! Todd :D

    Am I OK? rack to early?

    I am brewing an American Wheat style right now. It has a high OG of about 1.066. It had a very vigorous ferment in the primary for 3 1/2 days, using liquid yeast. Today was four full days. The action had slowed considerably, bubbling every 15 seconds or so and I racked it to the secondary. There...

    How long to carbonate?

    I used 2oz of strawberry extract at bottling only. I have seen other recipes call for using alot more. I wanted more of the Pete's wicked strawberry blonde flavor. The strawberry is very faint, mostly in the aroma and a slight hint in the taste. I really didn't want a fruity beer, just a...

    How long to carbonate?

    Good morning! This is my first post on this forum. It has been about 10 years since I have home brewed any beer. I bottled a Pete's wicked Strawberry blonde clone seven days ago. I have been checking the bottles for clarity and signs of carbonation. I opened one bottle last night after chilling...

    Need Info on Equipment, etc...

    I know this reply might be a little late, but anyway.... I have had great success using the Wine Expert kits. They can be pricey, but it is well worth it. I have done their "Estate Series, Woodbridge Ranch 11 Cabernet" It is great and also a Wine Expert Crushendo Syrah, which includes a grape...
