    What's eating my hops!?

    Hoping someone can help identify what's eating my hops. This is the second year since planting and the first year of serious growth. Nothing else in the garden is being eaten like this. I've had Japanese beetles in the past, but they eat everything indiscriminately. I can't see anything on the...

    Cleaning flux from diy cfc

    Hi guys I saw a few threads when I searched, but I was hoping to get a little better answer for this. I just finished building my cfc. It's built with 3/8 copper interior tubing and all the fittings are copper as well. I did a TSP soak, vinegar soak, and then rinsed the hell out of it. Water...

    Stalling lager fermentation

    I'm fermenting my first lager. I raised the temp to 64 F after primary finished for diacetyl rest. Now I'm dropping to to lager temps. I've been setting my temp controller down 2 degrees every morning. I just thought to check if the airlock was still bubbling today. As far as I can tell it's...

    Is my regulator working properly?

    I just kegged my first batch. I'm not sure I can ever go back to bottling now. I set my regulator to 13psi and left it overnight. By the next day the beer was carbonated. However, my regulator read that it was set at 10psi. Does this normally happen? Do I have to continuously adjust my...

    Should I rack my sour beer to secondary?

    I'm brewing my first sour beer using wyeast 3763 roeselare blend (Northern Brewers Oud Bruin de Table). It just finished primary fermentation. I was wondering if I should rack this into secondary; which is something I don't usually do. Would I possibly be removing enough of the lambic cultures...

    Yeast won't dissolve in starter

    Hoping some of you out there have seen this before. I made a starter using yeast (WLP 007) that had passed its expiration date. It looked like the yeast never broke up, even though it was on a stir plate. I assumed it wasn't fermenting at all and tossed it. Yesterday I bought a new vile...

    Brewing Podcast

    So I searched HBT for some recommendations on a brewing podcast. I love this site, tons of great information. Only problem is I can't read it while driving. It seemed like a large majority of people liked BN's Sunday Session. I had a few assumptions going into it so maybe that's my fault...

    First partial mash...I think

    First batch- Imperial/US gallon mix up

    My first batch is fermenting, everything looks good. I noticed the label of the malt extract can in the trash says 5 gallons/6 US gallons. I followed the directions using US gallons. Does anyone know what problems this might cause, aside from a possibly thick beer. I will be racking in a few...
