    Help with S-04

    Hi all, I've got 2 beers going with S-04 and I wonder if there's stuck fermentation or not. Both are NB extract kits, they had vigorous fermentation with blow-offs being needed for 24-36 hours. First one is the Brickwarmer Holiday Red brewed on Nov 18 and seems to be stuck or finished at...

    Unintended pellicle...

    Hi all, I've had a terrible time with my latest brew, a black IPA extract with steeping grains using WLP001 (no starter) OG of 1.06. Fermentation took it's sweet time and after 3 weeks I racked and dry hopped after seeing this (first 2 pics), gravity at 1.016. A week later the pellicle is...

    WLP001 with no starter

    Hi all, I brewed a Black IPA (extract with steeping grains) this weekend and used WLP001 yeast. It's my first time using liquid yeast so I just read the vial and pitched it without a starter. I'm just starting to have signs of fermentation after 48 hours. OG was 1.06 and room temp is 64 so that...

    Gushing bottles...

    Floaters...

    Hi all, I have a beer that's been in secondary for just over 2 weeks now. A few days ago I noticed a few floaters and more appear every day (they're all fairly small). I don't think it's an infection, does it look like yeast? Is there anything I can do to make it drop? I used Windsor...

    Crack in autosiphon

    Hi all, I just noticed what looks like a couple of cracks in the outer section of my autosiphon. I can't feel the crack if I run my nail over it so it might be on the inside, here's a pic. If I continue to use it am I risking an infected brew? Thanks, NK

    Airlock sucking back into carboy at secondary

    Hi all, I brewed a Tankhouse Ale Clone 2 weeks ago and flipped it to secondary after 1 week and reaching the target FG of 1.01. A few days ago I noticed that my 3-piece airlock has been sucking Star-San into the carboy! I'm not worried about the Star-San but wonder if there's a way to stop it...
