    Faster Carb in bottle?

    I almost always try one after 5 days, there's usually always carbonation except for the batch I made after the temperature break when my basement temperature went from 72 down to 62. They aren't fully carbonated, but I still always do it. :)

    I think I messed up...

    As long as you stirred it up good and it didn't scorch the bottom of your pot you should be fine. It's a good idea to take the pot off the heat while you add the extract and stir it, then bring it back to a boil so you don't get any scorching.

    Bayou SQ-14 question

    I just did my second boil with the sq-14 last night and had some issues. My first boil went great, kept 7 gallons boiling just fine. Last night it was a lot colder (probably high 30s low 40s) and I couldn't keep a boil going without the lid partially on. Is that normal? Every time I tried to...
