    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    Once I empty the fermentor, I'm gonna test the gallon line theory. I have a strong belief that the lines are not gallon marks just from looking at the fermentor, but I could be wrong. My glass fermentor is pretty much one fo the most common fermentors. I will do the glass etch thing though...

    Brewed a Pliny The Elder clone

    I've heard good things about dry hopping in the keg, but since I bottle, I couldn't tell you about that. I will say that since this extract has SOOOOOO many hops in it, dry hopping in the keg seems like it wouldn't do much to add flavor or aroma to the beer. I didn't whirlpool hop, I only...

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    So do they or don't they? That is the question... I think my best bet is going to be to measure circumference and height to get the volume and convert that to gallons then I'm good to go. I could use the priming calculator and not have to measure for each bottle then. I still have a 4-5 days...

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    So how much sugar per bottle?

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    So about 3.25 looks about right to me. Do account for the large amount of trub in the bottom as well though?

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    I only have 1 carboy unfortunately.

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    Here's my fermentor: hosting image I'm thinking around 3.5 gallons seems right But I think the measure from the bottom and circumference idea is a good way to go. If I remember right, this is a 6 gallon fermentor.

    Question about priming sugar for bottling.

    My question is, I don't know how much beer I have in my primary fermentor. I lost some do to a flub in racking the beer to the fermentor and have extracted quit a bit for some testing purposes. I think I have around 3 gallons but no way to tell. I have a whole bag of priming sugar designed...

    Curiousness about my Pliny clone kit

    My kit also uses magnum hops @ 90 and most other's use Columbus @ 90. Just more of an interesting observation. The one thing I will say is, this kit for everything except yeast and grain bag/hopsack is $51.99. I used the exact recipe to put together this recipe on txbrewing.com and...

    Curiousness about my Pliny clone kit

    I bought a Pliny the Elder kit from morebeer.com about 2 weeks ago (They claim it is the official recipe given to them by Vinnie @ RR) and it's sitting in the primary dry hopping right now. Once fermentation slowed, I sampled the beer (while taking a hydrometer reading and adding the dry hops)...

    Just took a gravity reading and sampled my Pliny clone

    So, I just took a FG reading of 1.015 of my Pliny the Elder clone (OG being 1.085). It's still fermenting but the fermentation has slowed down enough on this day (day 4) of fermentation that I wanted to see where it was at, plus I wanted to go ahead and add the hops so they'd be in the beer...

    60+ hours since yeast pitch and nary a bubble

    Firstly, you need to get that wort down to at least 70°. otherwise if you pitch more yeast, it still won't ferment. As to adding more yeast. I would think that would do the trick, but I want some of the other veterans on here with more experience than me to answer that question. I've always...

    60+ hours since yeast pitch and nary a bubble

    From my readings, 76° could absolutely be a yeast killer. Plus the fact that you don't know if your other yeast was viable means it might not be working either, but even if it was viable in any way, the 76° could have killed it. ales should go no higher than 76° to 72° at MOST. And then only...

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    I wish I could cold crash, but I don't have an extra refrigerator to do that in. I've heard that letting the beer sit in the primary is pretty common these days although a lot of people who dry hop transfer to secondary. I'm just gonna throw the hops in the primary and not rack to secondary...

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    If I dry hop in primary, my beer will be cloudy as hell as there is about 2 inches of trub in the primary. Without moving to a secondary fermentor, how do I clarify the beer? I'm okay with keeping in primary and dry hopping there as long as I can make the beer more clear for when I bottle.

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    What I read from the American Homebrewers Association is that if you pitch too little yeast, they have to work harder to convert the sugars to alcohol and that is what produces the unwanted esters (except in a good Hefe!). The (hopefully) lucky part for me on this beer is, it has a CRAP TON of...

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    I thought about about that as well. I poured the wort in the fermentor first and the topped off with water so no mixing was done (my mistake). I drew my sample from below that so It could have been 1.070-1.075 on OG. I went ahead and bought a 5 gallon brew kettle so next time in a couple of...

    Take your spam elsewhere. You've been reported.

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    Yes! I Only have the beer in the primary so no other beers to share (other than commercial stuff) but I plan on brewing MUCH more. PM me your contact info.

    Should I double or triple pitch a 1.085 OG batch?

    I have a dry hopping addition so I'll be going to a secondary. I praying that the big dry hopping addition will help to cover up some of the ester aromas I'm probably going to get. I may take a sample once fermentation slows down. Also it would give me a good hydrometer reading to see how...
