    6 Weeks Primary

    I have an oatmeal stout kit that has been in the primary for 6 weeks. Is this beer going to be ok? Why is 4 weeks seem to be the max that people go? I am also fermenting around 65 degrees in my basement. Thanks for the input!

    Boiling Issues

    Yeah it was definitely boiling. Hops were moving around well. Im just trying to finish it up right now. Doing a pumpkin ale and i just added in 60 oz of pumpkin and more LME and it dropped the temp down to 190. It says you should boil it another 5 mins and then add hops for last few mins but...

    Boiling Issues

    I just brewed my first batch at a new house im living in for the summer but the propane stove could not keep the boil going unless I left the lid on. I kept taking it off every few mins to get the hops off of the side. Hope it turns out alright since i couldnt keep a steady rolling boil. Once...
