    No activity after a couple of week

    I will check and post the result on her later. It is my understanding that when fermenting a wheat ale, noticeably more krausen will be produced. Is this true or could it have fermented without showing any signs?

    No activity after a couple of week

    I am brewing a wheat ale, wyeast ale yeast. This is the first time I have used wyeast. I brewed about two weeks ago. I broke the wyeast inner package as instructed, let it sit for about a half hour and then opened and pitched. The yeast was pitched at room temperature, with the wort...

    Extract brew - Didn't steep grains - problem?

    We brewed a wheat ale last week. Forgot to steep the grains, just tossed in the malt, hops and boiled as if it was done. Then realized the mistake and steeps grains at 160 for about a half hour. Are we going to have a problem?

    Beer isn't carbonated - how to remedy?

    In response to the bottler, it is new and has only been used for two other batches for a total of about 150 bottles. The caps are tight.

    Beer isn't carbonated - how to remedy?

    The sugar was mixed in with the bottling bucket. Only 6 beers were put into the fridge. One that was not in the fridge, at all, was opened and flat. Would it make sense to re-rack, pitch additional yeast, and prime again? Or, would re-racking oxygenate the beer and create a very...

    Beer isn't carbonated - how to remedy?

    It was at room temperature for about 4 weeks before refrigerating. I probably should have mentioned that this was an ale, with Knottingham ale yeast, so we kept it at room temperature, between 70-72 degrees. The first two batches, this is the third we've done, were fine with the same yeast in...

    Beer isn't carbonated - how to remedy?

    The latest batch was in the primary for about 3 weeks, skipped secondary and went straight to bottles. Corn sugar was used to carbonate the beer. It was refrigerated about four weeks after bottling. The first beer was opened last weekend and was totally flat, no carbonation at all. Another...

    What is the effect of a partial boil?

    I am planning on making this alleged Oberon clone but do not yet have the capacity for a full boil. I am curious to know if there is anything that needs to be changed with a partial boil (2 gallon) vs. full. Also, would the be any negative effect by only doing a partial vs. full boil? Thanks...

    Bells Oberon Clone

    I would like to know how this turned out? Oberon is one of my favorite beers. I live in Chicago and haven't had Oberon in over two years.

    When to go from Primary to Secondary (If at all)

    I have batch #2 in the primary right now, it is an Ale Pale, I have an additional Ale Pale type bucket with a tap on the bottom that was used for bottling in the first batch. The first batch was in the primary for 12 days, then siphoned to the second bucket, bottled and drank after 14 days...

    Oops, we measured only 1 gallon of water for the wort, what will the results be?

    Great! Thanks for the replies. Strainer was sanitized, it's in the fermenting tank. Now, the first batch called for two weeks in the fermenting tank, then bottle and leave for another two weeks in the bottles. It turned out ok, a little bitter and very light. It was a blond and we used...

    Oops, we measured only 1 gallon of water for the wort, what will the results be?

    My friend and I made our second batch last night, we are making 5 gallons. We made the wort with some light grains, 1oz. cascade hops, 1oz. hallertauer (I think) hops, 6.6lbs of malt extract. After the boil was finished, we cooled the wort to about 80 degrees, but as it was cooling we...
