    Ringwood Diacetyl rest

    Aprreciate the input! I moved it back to the warmer room and it seems to be getting better, hopefully a week at the correct temp will help it out. Thanks again!

    Ringwood Diacetyl rest

    I fermented at 65F. The LHBS told me to rest at 55-60F for 24-48 hours, that seemed to jsut make the diacetyl smell worse.

    Ringwood Diacetyl rest

    I'm brewing ORfy's hobgoblin clone and used ringwood. It fermented out and I hit my FG. However it has a slightly buttery smell and taste. I know I need to do a diacetyl rest but I've come across a range of temps to bring it to. Joy of Homebrewing states that it should happen at 55-60...

    Failed yeast washing?

    I washed the yeast from my last batch......however I seem to have not done a very good job, got a lot of trub underneath the yeast. Is it ok to make a starter from the whole thing or should I try to get the clean yeast off the top somehow?

    Converting Recipe to Extract

    I'm looking to make Yooper's EKG IPA (I have a half pound of hops in the freezer screaming to be used) Though my problem is that, while I have done all-grain in the past, my current set-up only allows for extract brewing. I converted the recipe in beersmith, but the amounts don't seem to be...

    Split boil cooling?

    Yeah it's all grain. I know there is a lot of debate about hot side aeration, should I jsut dump pot #1 into pot #2 and chill away?

    Split boil cooling?

    Due to the inefficiency of my stove I have to do split boils or 2.5gal batches. I only have one big sink and can cool only one pot at a time. My pot is big enough to hold the full wort after it's been boiled, can I put the split boils in one pot and cool in the sink? Or would I be better off...

    Fiddler's Elbow Clone?

    It seems to be a pretty elusive one, I've had trouble finding any thing on a clone for it. I'll do some playing around with that and see what I can come up with :-)
