    Re-PRIME help needed

    Give it more time at least two more weeks....depending on what your final gravity it may need more time I had a similar experience and the beer for some reason took 6 weeks to prime

    Build up on side of fermenter

    This is a pic of my two week old Barley Wine SG 1.14 it's down to 1.027 Pacman yeast Heavy on hops 100IBU Never seen anything build up on the side like this before ...smells and taste okay...think I should rack to secondary...looks kind of moldy from what I could tell but don't have experience...

    What happened to my brew?

    over carbed......1 cup of honey is way too much ...measure honey by the ounce for priming 3oz is what I've had success with Also what was your final gravity when bottling...you may have had too much sugar already if racking to secondary at 2 weeks....no way to know with out taking a reading...

    Bottling sugar vs honey

    I use honey all the time to prime....I usually can open bottles after 4-5 days after priming...it doesn't really leave much flavor IMO since it will ferment out...just make sure your measurements are right...Palmer has a great graph in his book on the different type of sugars to use for priming...

    gusher bug v. overcarb v. fermentation issue?

    1.030 is way to high of a gravity to be bottling....it wasn't done fermenting so too much sugar is causing your problem You either under pitched your yeast or your temps weren't right for the common yeast or both to get it to finish. FG for a common should be 1.011 to 1.014 per bjcp...

    Strange fermentation behavior

    I'm guessing its fine ...I've seen US -05 do different stuff If you want honey flavor use honey malt...all the honey will ferment out and won't add a lot of flavor I know from experience
