    Yeast cake from secondary?

    my friends and I are planning on brewing our 1st 10 gallon batch of a porter. Rather than making a starter, I am wondering if I could just use the yeastcake from the 2ndary of an irish red that I made 2 weeks ago. I am using the same yeast, but not sure if being in with the irish red would...

    Dark Mild Mild Mannered Ale (AG) (E) UK/US

    I just used this recipe to get back into brewing and show a couple buddies the process. They are really into it. My OG was a little low...only 1.032. What do you think my target FG should be? Now that I think back I wish I woulda added just a tad of DME to boost it to where it should...

    How to get Bazooka tube onto FLYGUYS cooler MLT

    I have the "T" bazooka tube. Its not threaded, but I wanted to know if anyone knows the best way to attach this to the FLYGUY MLT. I don't mind if I have to solder it, I just want it on there nice and snug so it doesnt come off and ruin my day. Thanks! Chris

    Getting the bug again...need some suggestions if you would

    S-05 or Nottingham for Blond?

    Well, making my first batch of the season today..ready to get the keg going for football season. I figured I would make a nice easy-drinking blond to start. I have a few yeasts..S-04, S-05, and Nottingham. I was debating which yeast would give me the best results with a blond. Any opinions?

    Can it be salvaged?

    I accidentally left two carboys with an Irish Red and German Dunkel in my closet over the summer. It got pretty hot (90+) in there over the summer and when I tasted it and checked the FG...the FG was where it should be (1.012), but it had that really hot...sweet taste to it. Is there anything...

    Help with Red Recipe

    first all grain, what a cluster %#@!

    Ive done a few AG, the first was a mess...but came out pretty good! Everyone drank it and liked it. It got rid of that funky extract/metallic accomplished. After the first one I realized there is NO reason to stress about beer. Follow your recipe, keep it clean, and you...

    Ive done a few AG batches thus far. They have all surpassed any of the extracts Ive made by far, but the only thing I cannot get is that they seem to be cloudy. I made edworts Haus Pale a few weeks ago and cold crashed it for 7 days when fermentation was finished, but its still cloudy. It...

    Why didn't someone tell me sooner

    i started brewing about 6 months ago and could not get over that extract taste. It was ok..but something about it just wasn't right. SO I rigged up a Mash Tun and got a 6 gallon pot for now and I have done 4 AG brews so a difference. Planning my Brutus for my summer project...
