    How do i calculate Final Gravity with adjunct additions?

During the first three days of fermentation i added 12 oz. of maple syrup a day for three days. In total i added 36 oz. of organic maple syrup to the...

    How long to fruit?

    I recently brewed a Kettle sour. I had a starting gravity of 1.048. I let it ferment down to a gravity of 1.015. I then racked it onto 5# of kiwis and 5#of green pears. I saw airlock activity for 3 days after i added the fruit. My question is how long should i keep it on fruit before i keg?

    Kettle Sour Yeast Harvesting

    I have a local brewery whose kettle sour beer i enjoy. I noticed that every time i drink one there is a little yeast in the bottom of the can. Could harvesting this yeast and growing it into a pitch-able starter give me a yeast more suited for low Ph beers? I've had low attenuation issues in my...

    attenuation help needed.

    Yeast strain cocktail

    I keep a sanitized mason jar in my refrigerator. Every time I drink a commercial IPA or IIPA, I put the last sip of sediment into this jar. Once I see a fair amount of yeast/sediment on the bottom of the jar, I then start to propagate the yeast to make a starter. Then I took the starter that I...

    What will this make?

    Where I live in Alabama the nearest homebrew shop is 60+ miles from me so I order all of my ingredients from the internet. I heard a rumor that a homebrew shop opened up about 15 miles from me so I went to check it out. This "homebrew shop" is a vape store that sells a very small selection of...

    Keg Aging

    I recently acquired four used ball lock corny kegs. I already have three kegs that I use in my three tap kegerator. I was wondering if I could age beer in my kegs. The one thing that stops me from making big abv. beers is that I don't want to tie up my fermenters for long periods of time. Could...

    Chunky Beer

    From time to time while sampling "build your own 6 pack" beer I run across chunky beer. It seems to be primarily in IPA. It normally doesn't have an off taste. I have a picture from one I encountered Saturday night.

    Peanut butter porter

    I just tried Beer Engineers Peanut Butter Porter. This is a new brewery out of Birmingham Alabama. I love porter so this one was right up my alley. It's a good complex beer. If you get the chance check it out. Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew
