    Grain Storage

    As a beginner I'm not sure how long I can store grain. I thought I would put it in a PET plastic canister, uncrushed, and pull a vacuum from a one way check valve on the top. This would eliminate any o2. Would this be advisable and how long will it last. Thanks

    Sediment yeast

    If I bottle the sediment yeast at the bottom for my fermenter, how long can I wait before I have to use it. Should I add additional yeast to the next beer batch or is the sediment yeast enough? The cost of liquid yeast is around $7 and I'm cheap so I would like to use the Yeast in my fermenter...

    Fermenter Sediment

    My batch is only 2.5 gal, so I'm using a Mr. Beer Keg to ferment in. I usually use a 2.5 gal PET plastic water container I got at Walmart. I drilled a hole in the top cap and inserted an air lock. Seem to work pretty well. Both have spigots and the problem is sediment in the spigot. Thanks for...

    Fermenter Sediment

    I have over 1 inch of sediment in my fermenter. Is there any way I can filter it when I go to my secondary. The sediment is clogging the spigot. Thanks

    Brass fitting

    I just installed a new spigot in my fermenter and the nut is brass. Does anyone know it the brass will affect the beer or yeast. Thanks

    Yeast temperature

    Yes, I can go colder than 47 F but it is the warmest it will go before the compressor turns on again or the frig shuts off completely.

    Dry vs Liquid yeast !!Cost!!

    Okay, I do have another question. I've been using liquid yeast from white labs and it seems to work well. Problem is I brew only 2.5 gal. each time, and the yeast bottle is for 5 gal. I use the whole bottle and it seems to work well. The problem is, it costs $7 a bottle. The recipe I'm working...

    Yeast temperature

    I have one more question for the experts. I'm brewing an Octoberfest beer and it calls for a lager yeast. My spare frig can only go as high as 47 F. I know the optimum temperature for lager yeast is around 55 F. Is 47 F okay or should I use an ale yeast, fermentation temp around 72 F. That...

    DME vs Corn sugar

    Thanks for the response, I think I'll just leave it alone.

    DME vs Corn sugar

    My question for today. I'm brewing a batch of Ale, all grain, and the SG is to low after boil. Should have been 1.052 and it's 1.042. I don't have any DME so would it be okay to use corn sugar instead. I used more water than I should have at mashing. Thanks Fred

    Grain

    Thanks for the replys. The grain was curshed, but I did seal them in airtight bags. I guess I should use them as soon as possible. The problem is, I only need 1.5 oz from a 1 lb bag. Kind of a waste. I'll try to find recipes that call for this grain. By the way, it's a chocolate grain. Thanks...

    Grain

    I have a lot of extra gain from previous batches I've brewed. How long can I leave the grain in the Frig, and still be usable. Thanks Fred
