    Brew Kettle Selection Help

    You will start to have issues using the stove at any higher volumes. As for kettle price sometimes you get what you pay for and sometimes you don't.

    Software or pen and paper?

    I did my first batch pen and paper, upgraded to iBrewmaster for a few batches and then upgraded again to BeerSmith. I have it on my iPhone as well and I can view/edit recipes and share vie their cloud server with other people and get their opinion. I think that it is easier to actually design...

    need advice - low ABV and OG

    a couple questions. 1. Are you using a beer software or doing lang math to figure your ABV? 2. After you transferred was there still airlock activity? If it was my batch I would allow it to sit for a while longer and see where the FG goes. If all activity has stopped than you can attempt to...

    WTF happened??????

    you gotta also be careful when cold crashing too quickly because if you shock the yeast too much it can release esters that you may not want in your beer. Personally no more than 3 degrees per day is what I would recommend

    Most annoying response when you tell someone you're a homebrewer?

    Yeast starterfor Oktoberfest

    if that is the case and the yeast was new you would need about a 2l starter so I would do a second stage. You SHOULD be fine pitching what you have though.

    Yeast starterfor Oktoberfest

    would it be safe to assume that you used a 100 billion cell pack, liquid type yeast?

    it would depend a lot on the projected OG and the volume of wort you are going to be fermenting. If you shoot me the details I am more than willing to do the calculations for you.
