    Measuring Priming Sugar

    Ok weighing sounds like the way to go...pun intended. But, since different sugars have different densities how do you know how much to weigh? I know dextrose is generally the most commonly used priming sugar, and perhaps DME is second. Histo stated that temperature has an impact so are...

    Measuring Priming Sugar

    Thanks for the info. I am a little confused as most of the books I have read, well ok the 2 books I have read, say to use 3/4 cup of sugar (Dextrose). Is measuring the weight a better way to go?

    Measuring Priming Sugar

    Greetings, A couple of nights ago I was bottling up a Honey Ginger Lager and found a package of priming sugar that had come with a beer kit that I got for Christmas. I have always used 3/4 cup of priming sugar which is what I measured out of the package. The package was labeled as having 5oz...

    Very occasional bubbling in the blow-off tube

    Just took another Hydro reading. 1.0055 so I racked into my secondary with 3lbs of Peach puree. So far everything looks OK. I'll probalby bottle in 2 weeks just to give the beer time to soak up some peachness. :)

    Very occasional bubbling in the blow-off tube

    OG was around 1.056 and fermenting temps around 65-70F. Haven't taken a final reading just yet. Getting ready to do that in a bit. I am hoping to see the FG around 1.010-1.005.

    Very occasional bubbling in the blow-off tube

    OK, I know the Hydrometer tells all but I was wondering about very intermittent bubbling coming through the blow-off tube. I have a batch of Wheat beer in the primary and it's been there for a little over a week (9 days). About every 1 1/2 mins it gurgles a few bubbles out. I'll take a Hydro...

    What's the deal with Yeast Starters?

    Wow and I thought I already knew everything about making beer...LOL...just kidding. What's interesting here is that I actually asked a question about the amount of yeast needed for a batch of beer when I first started some 6 months ago and no one pointed me to this calculator. Thanks

    What's the deal with Yeast Starters?

    What do you mean by yeast pitching rates? I always dump the entire dose in all at once. Is there a different recommendation?

    What's the deal with Yeast Starters?

    Greetings, I see people talking about yeast starters and propogating yeast from one batch to another. When I am at the LHBS I see about a million variations of yeast from dry to liquid, ale, lager, wheat, bavarian, american, and so on. First, does the yeast variant make that much...

    Pellet versus Leaf Hops

    Actually I picked up a Wyeast 3056 not realizing that there were more choices. I wonder how much of a difference that will make?

    Pellet versus Leaf Hops

    Greetings, I am going to try a little experiment on a Wheat Beer kit I was given at Christmas. The kit came with 2 cans of Unhopped Wheat Malt, a package of hops and some yeast. Looking at various Wheat beer recipies I have decided to do a little hops substitution. I will be using...

    Cream Ale - Any good recipes?

    I am interested in making a nice Cream Ale. Any pointers to recipies would be appreciated. I am also wondering if there might be a way to infuse the Cream Ale with a hint of Orange flavor for a sort of Orange Cream Beer soda. Thanks TC
