    Too long in bottles......

    Totally makes sense.......this actually just clicked with me, and I would love to be able to transfer from secondary to bottles while there would be just enough fermenting left to finish in th ebottles, but I don't think that is feasible at all. So.......I'll just go ahead and prime.

    Too long in bottles......

    OKAY! Sheesh.......was just wondering about something. All right already. I'll prime. I'm ecited about this batch....was my first AG, and everything went perfectly. Was just curious. I'll prime. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, I'LL PRIME!!!!!

    Too long in bottles......

    It's mentioned in couple different books about brewing British style beers. Basically, I really want to have a lot of patience and take all the time in the world with this beer.......think it's going to be awesome, so that's why I thought I would throw this whole idea out to you all and see...

    Too long in bottles......

    Hey Kahuna! Pretty obvious to me that you missed the humor of Bros Trout's post. Chill out man. Don't think he was attacking you or yours personally, but rather throwing out an interesting idea, or at least something to chew on. It's people like on you on forums across the board that are...

    Too long in bottles......

    I've heard and read the opposite, though. That if it's a properly made beer, there is no need to prime. That all priming does is just speed up the process.

    Too long in bottles......

    Got a question for you all. I've got a Fuller's ESB recipe sitting in my secondary right now, and I am planning on bottling this Thursday; I'm not going to prime it.....going to let it bottle condition for three weeks. Here's my question. I know it will be fine for the first week, but do I...

    Different mash temps....

    Elowe.....GREAT idea! Going to give this a shot. I'll let you guys know how it works.

    Different mash temps....

    Huh. :o Might try a different recipe. Not saying decoction is impossible......

    Different mash temps....

    Got a question for you guys. I just broached the AG brewing, and had a great (and successful) time doing it. I want to do a belgian wheat ale next, and herein lies my question. I am supposed to mash at a lower temp first, namely 122 degrees F, for 30 minutes, then raise the temp to 151...

    Adjusting Hydrometer readings for temp.

    Same link I would have suggested.....used it yesterday for my first AG, and things went smashingly. Damn near perfect. Good luck to ya man!

    Did I screw up?

    Hey, thanks guys for the input. I think I'll just let her sit tight for a bit and see what happens. Thanks again!

    Did I screw up?

    Thanks Yooper. No, I didn't check the SG.........my hydrometer is a little untrustworthy; haven't had a chance to get a new one yet. At this point, just hoping for the best. Thanks for your advice!

    Did I screw up?

    Hey all! All right, so I have a question for you guys about something I read, and then I tried it, and now I'm wondering if I just destroyed my batch of beer. So I let a Boddington's Bitter brew sit and ferment for four days, and then I was reading in Brew Your Own English Ale that he likes to...
