    Can I make a 1 liter starter in a 1 liter flask?

    I don't have a lot of experience with stirplates. I have a 5L starter going right now in a 5L flask. I havent had a issue with overflow. YMMV:mug:

    What kind of beer are you making? OG? Ale or Lager?

    Need Some input please

    I did a IIPA with 2 oz of columbus early in the boil. I ran your numbers in my brewing software and you are to style with a IPA. Go for it!:tank: Let us know what you decide. :ban:

    1st beer tastes WAY too strong, need help

    I also made this recipe. Your gonna need to leave it for at least 4-5 weeks in the bottle. It was a little hot tasting first for me as well

    Forgot my bittering hops until late and low OG!

    Ran 5lbs dme and 2.5gal boil with 1oz willamette for 40min in my brewing software. I get 10IBU,s. and a BU:GU ratio of .27 So I think you should be fine. Might be a little on the sweet side but I don't think it will be cloying.

    Strawberry Ginger Ale

    Sonds good. I may have to try this. And thanks for the recipe :) Did you ever try using BMBF? It works awesome for bottling beer from a keg. Maybe it would work with soda? Not sure cause of the higher carbonation of soda...

    First brew gone wrong?

    Yea probably because of the lack of a boil. The boiling lets the hop oils become soluble in the wort. Probably didnt get enough bitterness from the hops. I dont know how to fix it. Maybe franks red hot?:D Was the fg close to the estimated fg from the recipe? -Nick

    2nd brew question

    Do you mean no head retention? I've never used, but lack of head retention can be caused by not waiting long enough for the beer to condition in the bottle. Dish soap residue on your glass can be a cause as well. -Nick

    My IPA isnt too pale at all :(

    I add around half of the extract at the beginning and then the rest 5mins until the end of the boil. Make sure you add some extract to the boil before you put hops in. Hop oils isomerize better with some sugar present. -Nick

    Wicked Foamy Beer

    I've heard that what can happen sometimes is the co2 produced didnt have enough time to dissolve into the beer. So when you open one you get a beer fountain. Maybe try leaving in the fridge longer? :mug: -Nick

    how does nottingham yeast behave?

    This yeast is a mad man. You will need a blow off tube for sure. It usually takes off within 24hrs (i've had as fast as 4hrs). After visible fermentation usually takes about 4 days for the krausen to fall. This yeast must be kept under 22c. Thats not just room temp either. Id...
