    Oktoberfest Ale and Gellatin

    I am making an Oktoberfest Ale. It had malto-dextrin added in the boil. If I use gellatin will it take the MD out and reduce the body of the finished product? Also can you pitch on a yeast cake, or wash the yeast if you use gellatin?

    Thread Moving

    Just out of curiosity, why are threads about extract kits being moved? Aren't those related to brewing with extracts? I'm just wondering because thats where I would post one.

    Which Should I Age?

    I picked up these beers from a liquor store with a huge selection. They do a wild six promotion that gets you 15% off of each six. I bought two mixed six packs. Anyone have any opinions on what beers here are better to age, and what are better to drink now? I drank the Yeti, it was the best RIP...

    Stopping Carbonation

    I have a beer that was bottled after 1 month in primary. The FG ended up a little off from the expected FG. I tried everything to restart it, and it did go down some more. It started at 1065 and is now 1020. It was supposed to end at 1016. Through the question I have asked here it appears that...

    Stone Vertical Epic 07

    Banana Taste

I thought the banana properties came from fermenting over 70. It has been two weeks in primary. Is...

    Solution to Fermometer Peeling

    Hi all. I just wanted to pass along a technique I have been using. I noticed that some people were complaining that their Fermometers peel apart when they soak their carboys in a tub of water. I took a clear plastic stick on pouch for a FedEx package, cut the top non-adhesive layer off and...

    Fermentation Question

    I am making a Porter from a Midwest supplies kit. It has been in primary for a little over a week, but the gravity hasn't changed in a few days. It started around 1065 and got down to 1030 within a couple days. It is still at 1030. I shook it a couple days ago to get the yeast back into...

    Oktoberfest Ale

    I am getting close to bottling my first beer. It was the Power Pack Porter kit from Midwest. It will spend 1 month in primary then I will bottle. I have about two weeks until my primary will be empty, so I want to start ordering my supplies. I would like to do an Oktoberfest, but lack the...
