    Blow off tube or not?

    Starting gravity worries

    The temp was around 60-ish when I took the starting gravity. It is supposed to finish at 1.012-1.015. It is still bubbling about every 30 seconds I did not mix the wort and water at all above pouring it in from 5ft. I thought that would do the trick but now I'll make sure to stir...

    Starting gravity worries

    Brewers Best IPA kit with Amarillo hops thrown in at the end of the boil. Kit says the starting gravity should be 1.050 but I got 1.030. This was saturday the 7th and today it is down to 1.020. I thought I followed the directions to a T but looks like I suck. Any ideas on what caused...

    I've been in PHX for too long so I consider this "cool"....

    I was thinking about using a secondary...should I wait till it stops bubbling so frequently? How long should I leave it in the secondary before bottling? Instructions say to leave it in the fermenter for 7-8 days before bottling. THX
