    Grain Storage

    My experience is different. I've had grain in storage for 3+ years and have used it recently with excellent results. Some of the best beer I've ever made. I have them in sealed buckets with gamma seal lids.

    Bottle Priming a Belgian Tripel

    Absolutely. It's the reason I started the thread! I keep notching it down as the thread progresses!

    Bottle Priming a Belgian Tripel

    Thank you all for the sanity check. I think I'll shoot for 3.5 volumes

    Bottle Priming a Belgian Tripel

    I've done some reading (and searching) on this topic and I'm anxious about screwing up my Tripel that is brewing right now when I go to bottle. I plan to do corked/caged heavy duty bottles like the ones that Duvel come in. Recipe says to shoot for 2.5 - 3.4 CO2. I have read (and a long time...

    Wyeast 1318 London Ale III Slower Fermentation?

    Good call. I've tried "rousing" by gently rocking the fermenter and the gravity actually went up! I'm going to give it a few more days (day 6 and still at 1.021) and I might let US-05 try to finish the job.

    Wyeast 1318 London Ale III Slower Fermentation?

    Mine started 1.056 and had about the same attenuation as you had for a while. It just seems stuck. I don't have a great way to control temps, but I've been able to raise it a couple degrees. I'm guessing this one is going to end higher than I wanted.

    I'm actually an "elder" of the internet. ;-)

    Wyeast 1318 London Ale III Slower Fermentation?

    Just interested in others' experiences with this yeast. Maybe I'm used to fermentations going faster, but I brewed Saturday and I've gone from 1.056 to 1.026 in 3 days and it has really leveled off. Tilt says it is at 66F and I've been at (or around 1.025) for the past couple of days. I know...

    Starsan bottle has a crack

    Great point, and I have already purchased more. ;-)

    Starsan bottle has a crack

    32 oz bottle but I'm sure it's years old.

    PET plastic be okay you think?

    Starsan bottle has a crack

    I guess I could find a glass bottle? Or like any kind of plastic bottle work?

    Is there another way to store it? Thoughts?

    BrewFather Equipment Profile - Mash Water Volumes

    That's exactly it! I had a hard time figuring out how to manipulte it, but finally figured it out. Thanks!

    BrewFather Equipment Profile - Mash Water Volumes

    I know I'm probably doing something wrong, but I would like to essentially go to a 50/50 batch sparge setup and I can't figure out how to get my 8 gallons of total water needed into two 4 gallon batches. I realize it has something to do with my equipment profile (I have a 10 gallon mash tun)...

    Bottom Up Pouring? Anyone tried this?

    ;-). Okay, maybe I was being a little coy. I will need to do a little research though to understand the "bottom up" concept.

    What was your first brew?

    I think it was circa 1992. A can of hopped light malt and a bunch of corn sugar. And I loved it! ;-)

    Bottom Up Pouring? Anyone tried this?

    Is there a way to fill a glass from the top down?

    Second AG didn't work so well

    You might want to check your hydrometer. Something to think about. Mine reads .003 low all the time, so I have to add .003 to every reading. Just a thought.

    Ditch the dry hop??

    IMHO, dry hopping is almost purely about aroma.
