    When to take OG reading?

    Well that for sure answers my question, it was a full boiland actually was a litltle low on volume I think, bummer, thanks as always yooper. To be honest my og was dead on as planned for my efficiency I planned for but I was about a full gallon shy post boil, guess I didn't get the efficiency...

    When to take OG reading?

    Sort of a thread revival here but wondering if anyone had thoughts on how accurate your hydro reading will be if you take a gravity reading straight from the kettle right after I removed my chiller with no mixing yet?

    extract challenge

    my inspiration for the beer was when the SN Anniversary Ale was taken out of rotation and I failed to find a clone recipe anywhere online, it being my favorite craft beer i wanted to try and reproduce it but have yet been able to try them side by side, who knows they may be way different beers...

    extract challenge

    so this was my seventh i think extract brew and my fifth recipe i formulated myself, i have since brewed it once more and it was almost spot on except i realized after i placed my order the specialty grains i ordered were not the exact same which i attribute to the difference in the two batches...

    should i be worried?

    since its finished doing its thing for the most part, think i should park it in the fridge and cold crash it? (i have a fridge in my garage i can get to stay at almost exactly 50F) Also is it important to leave it in primary for at least two wks, I mean its done (reached my estimated FG) at...

    should i be worried?

    yah just hard being out of town to not keep a watchful eye till it was doing what i knew it should be, i usually am very patient and usually forget about my beer till its ready to rack or bottle.

    should i be worried?

    if i do have a leak in the airlock and thats why it was or isnt bubbling (still havent been able to ask SWMBO if it is bubbling again now?), is this considered an open fermentation? and if so do people still do this? and should i have any concerns about this or do anything special?

    should i be worried?

    yes that is what I did for sure, not acceptable? ive done this several times before with plenty of success? thanks for the help guys, dont know what I would do without this forum.

    should i be worried?

    I am planning on sticking the airlock back on after I get home tuesday after I take a gravity reading, and if fermentation has died down, SWMBO isnt the biggest fan of this wonderful hobby so hate annoying her sticking her head in the brew closet everytime I call her, she will give me an update...

    should i be worried?

    I formulated the recipe myself and would be happy to share, I used canned pumpkin as it seemed the easiest option outside of researching the ideal species of pumpkin for this sort of undertaking. I formulated the recipe based on taking ideas from several recipes and techniques I had found and...

    should i be worried?

    I guess I just dont see how it could be done in just a few hours? the OG was 1.072? I guess im just stumped as to why one minute I have a very active fermentation and now it seems as if I dont have anything when all I did was go from airlock to blow off tube? I havent talked to SWMBO again...

    should i be worried?

    so i brewed a pumpkin ale last night and poured it on a pretty big s-05 cake from a previous american amber ale. four hours after pitching it the airlock was going crazy and since i had to go out of town for a couple days i figured i should attach a hose to the stem on the airlock and make a...

    cake pitching question?

    the stout is a 1078 OG but i am worried about the hoppiness from the imperial ipa coming through. i have plenty of 1056 in the fridge so i will probably just make a starter.

    cake pitching question?
