    Would you recommend adding this peanut butter extract to my kit?

    Interesting notion, you racked the first part, added the extract to the remainder, then put the lid/bung back on and let it sit for a couple days to mix in and racked and bottled the rest, so you really only introduced around the same amount of oxygen you would from taking a sample to measure...

    Would you recommend adding this peanut butter extract to my kit?

    I'm making this oatmeal stout kit, it's only one of my first beers and I haven't intentionally modified a kit yet, but I love peanut butter stouts, so I bought a bottle of Brewer's Best Peanut Butter extract and most people reccomend it as the size for a 5 gallon batch to be added at bottling...

    Just cracked open my first home brew! Thank you guys for your advice, here's the results and what I'm working on next.

    First brew, temperature higher than I anticipated.

    I came home today and it was down to 68 with much less bubbling in the airlock, but I cracked it open and there was a decent layer of foam

    First brew, temperature higher than I anticipated.

    I started my my first IPA brew last night, and I (like further research has told me might be a common mistake) didn't take into account that fermentation generates some of its own heat. I have my beer sitting in the bottom of a fairly small pantry/closet, and now about 20 hours after start I...
