    Good Beer of the month club?

    Cousins birthday is coming up and he is really starting to get into good beers. His girlfriend wants to get him a subscription to a beer of the month club so she asked me. And I have NO idea. Sure, I can google all the clubs. But it would be nice to get some personal experience.

    Fermentation in the secondary

    I am brewing a watermelon wheat beer. I racked the wort and yeast on top of a little bit of watermelon puree to boost the gravity, and let it ferment.

Anyways, I just took a gravity...

    Question about going to a secondary

    My beer has finally settled down (after almost 3 weeks). Gravity readings are staying the same, no activity in the air lock. Some of you have told me to not secondary, is there any reason why?

    super slow fermentation

    I put my beer in the primary last wednesday (10 days). At the peak, I got a bubble every 5 seconds. Right now I am getting one every 10 seconds. I took a gravity reading and I went from 1.030 to 1.022. Is it going to be able to be transferred to the secondary by the end of this week?
