    Chocolate stout

    I wish I could take credit for it, it belongs to Midwest Supplies. I brewed it once before as directed and it was amazing, I am sure it will be with the chocolate also!!! Thanks for all the feedback!

    Chocolate stout

    2 in a 1/4 cup, so that would equal 4 ozs total. It will probably be fine, next time I will boil it longer and see what I get. Not due to keg it for another 6 days, I will post the results!!!

    Transfer to secondary fermenter

    I don't plan to brew any more lagers for awhile, takes to long for a product. Going with an amber ale and then a summer ale. Also going to try a Mike's Hard lemonade clone.

    Transfer to secondary fermenter

    It has been in the primary for 1 week, plan to leave it in for another week and transfer to the refrigerator for 4 weeks. Problem I am anticipating is my neighbor suggested I use the carboy for the primary fermenter. I have another carboy to transfer it into for the secondary fermenter, but...

    I am brewing my first batch of beer. Selected Tasmanian Light Lager, in 7 more days I have to transfer it to the secondary fermenter. Am I supposed to filter it when I transfer it? Thanks.
