    Frozen Lacto yeast?

    Fridge was a bit too low, that's why it ended up freezing. I turned it down, and the lacto is back to liquid. I'm debating if I should take the chance and use it, or just buy a new lacto packet. I appreciate the responses guys

    Frozen Lacto yeast?

    Hey guys quick question. I'm all set to try my 3rd ever brew. I'm making a Gose. I have the liquid Lactobacillus Omega Yeast (OYL-605) which I heard good things about. It's been stored in my refrigerator.. when I went to check on it just now, it's pretty much frozen solid. Will that compromise...

    First Sour brew.. not sour?

    I was honestly thinking that something may have been off with the kit. I followed every direction 100%. Maybe I'll look elsewhere. Thanks

    First Sour brew.. not sour?

    UPDATE So today was the day we could finally drink the beer.. it had ZERO sour flavor to it unfortunately. Been doing research and reading and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong !

    First Sour brew.. not sour?

    Sure! So as per the directions, I did the Mash, Sparge, and added the Lactobacillus from a capsule that came with the kit. All of this was done on 12/05. I let it sit at room temp for 4 days, and on 12/09 I did the boil.

    First Sour brew.. not sour?

    Hey guys. Hope someone can help me out. I'm doing a Gose kit (Gose gone wild from Brooklyn Brew Shop) yesterday was bottling day. I did the mash, sparge, etc. And I added the Lactobacillus exact as per the instructions. When bottling/conditioning yesterday, I gave it a little taste and did...

    Bottling/Priming Help Needed!

    Excellent, thanks so much guys. How much water, and do I boil it, or just add the sugar to the water? Thanks!

    Bottling/Priming Help Needed!

    So today is bottling day. I've been on planning on using organic wild flower honey to make my priming solution. I just read this isn't a good idea, as there's no way to know the sugar level, and could lead to bottle bombs. My only other option is table/cane sugar. I can't for the life of me...

    Bottling into a uKeg?

    Bottling into a uKeg?

    I should have mentioned, I have the 64oz uKeg Go. I don't have the adaptor tho. I was going to use the 8 gram co2 cartridges that I bought from Growlerworks when I purchased the uKeg. But I guess that's not a good idea? Thanks a lot for the insight, I appreciate all the info I can get.

    Bottling into a uKeg?

    Hey guys, doing my first brew at the moment. It should be ready to bottle in 2 weeks. I own a growlerworks uKeg that takes the little disposable co2 canisters. I've read that you can bottle directly into them. Is this common? Safe? Any opinions on it? Thanks!

    First time brewing questions.

    Thanks for the info. I want to try some different stuff in the future, once I have a better understanding of the process.
