    dry hopping pale ale

    So I dry hopped with 50grams target after decanting to a fresh FV and left it 7 days then bottles. Starting gravity 1.041 end gravity 1.08. Tried it yesterday and it's fab, really fresh and floral. I bottled some before dry hopping for a comparison, and without hops it has no body, very little...

    Cold crash

    Hi, Ive got some 'better brew bandit beer', a desperados style lager but with an ale yeast. I want to cold crash it to get a really clear beer-is it worth putting it in the porch which will probably be 4-7 degrees C or is that not cold enough? How long would I leave it before bottling? 2-3...

    An you sanitize bottles in an oven if they are cleaned first? As in stick them in a hot oven for 20 minutes or so like people do for jam?

    A few questions from a newbie!

    If you dont want air to contact the beer, how do you get samples for the hydrometer? surely you have to open the fermenter to get the sample, letting air in?

    A few questions from a newbie!

    lovely, well i think ill leave it in there till 20th or so which would be 16 days or so, then transfer to my bottles and leave them in the dark. I think its quite airtight (enough to stop anything coming in), but not enough to carbonate, as the gas does hiss out. Would you advise an airlock...

    A few questions from a newbie!

    Hi guys, jut had a few questions I was hoping you could answer! Is it okay to leave the beer for a few extra days after all the bubbling has stopped? It looks set to stop just as I start exams so don't want the haste of bottling and revising at the same time, but do t wavy the beer ruined! Are...

    first brew-worried about temperature!

    Great thanks guys, one more thing, I'm planning on bottling it into old beer bottles I've gathered up who caps from the local shop. Are that type strong enough for conditioning?

    first brew-worried about temperature!

    well ive wrapped it in an electric blanket, and hopefully that will save it. Is the yeast likely to still be viable or should I add more? Thanks for the help!

    first brew-worried about temperature!

    Hi guys, new to the forum and just started my first brew (muntons bitter) My beer doesn't have any signs of fermenting (though I know its early, its only been going for around 24 hours) I was wondering if my house is too cold? It is probably somewhere around 10-15 degrees C as I don't have...
