    I let my pumpkin ale ferment for about 7 months and now I just popped the lid on it and I have this clump of what looks like mold growing on the top! I really hope it's not lost, it smells wonderful! Any ideas?

    Burner Help!?

    What type of fermenter do you use?

    The question is as basic as it sounds, I personally own a large quantity of glass five and six and a half gallon carboys but hate cleaning them because I do a lot of dry hopped beers. I also feel that six and a half gallon plastic buckets are much easier to clean, cost less, and are just easier...

    Boiling fly-sparge water?

    I recently brewed with a guy I've never brewed with before. Heres the deal, I fly sparge with water roughly 168 degrees but in watching him brew he was using water that was almost a rolling boil. I tasted said brews that he makes and they were the best home brewed beers I've ever tasted, hands...

    Beer tragedy!! Help me recover!

    So I'll be short and quick about this as I'm in an extremely volatile emotional state. About a month and a half ago I brewed an all simcoe hops Ipa. I carbed it last thursday and this beer was amazzaazing! I only had picnic faucets left over from my wedding so I used those. I had about 4-5...
