    What did I cook this weekend.....

    I did some pizza but replaced 1/3 of flour with used grain from my Oktoberfest beer brew. It was not bad at all.

    Explosive fermentation

    I have no choice to stick with the 13 degrees because i am lagering a rice beer and i only have 1 freezer with temperature control 🤣. But to me the easier would be to put half of my starter and put the rest few days later. But didn't got any advice on that subject yet. The OG should be around 1.046

    How do I make a "Sparkling Wine"?

    Your wine need to be completely finished fermenting first. Then you can calculate your priming pressure you want and add sugar accordingly. I was going to get some champagne bottles as well but at the end i just put it into coke and pepsi plastic bottles. It's less esthetic but works fine 😅

    Food Processor for Crushing Grapes, then Carboy Everything

    The seeds if they are crushed they will give bitterness to the wine. I usually break the skin and leave it between 8 to 14 days. The skin will give color and develop tanin in your wine for some type if grape. But if the skin is blended and still in the primary fermentation i dont know what will...

    is there any way I can save my beer?

    Yes you are right. When i was saying that it could infect the batch it's because i was referring to... for me anyway, i hock up the immersion chiller with a garden hose that i never clean or treat it with any antibacterial agent and has a plastic taste as well. [Edit: Moved comment outside of...

    is there any way I can save my beer?

    Well you have a possibility of infection because some tap water went in your worth. You could boil again as FromzWolle suggested but you will need new yeast to pitch in. What is the OG now? You could just get a lowen ABV beer or use DME to increase the OG. But either cases you need to pitch...
