    First Brew, (BIAB) method. Belgian quad

    Hi everyone, so I wanted to give an update, I was concerned about the lack of activity in my airlock, so I actually ended up putting the rest of the yeast in the fermenter with some fermaid K Tuesday night, then I swirled it around a little. On Thursday there was little to no activity. So I...

    In all honesty, I’ve touched that bag too many times, I was considering just getting rid of the rest, if you think that I should skip it, I will, I’ll just let it ride and keep it as cold as possible. Thanks and I’ll keep everyone updated when I get closer to bottling I’m thinking Nov 5th

The brew is saying it’s at 72°F. I can’t seem to get it colder, so I hope it comes...

    First Brew, (BIAB) method. Belgian quad

    I reserved some wort from the 60 minute mash, before I added my hops and the Belgian candy syrup, I didn’t take a gravity reading before I started my 60 minute boil. So what I did was take 4oz wort, and 2g of fermaid k boiled them in a pot then put them in a beaker, cooled it to 72° f. Then I...

    Thank you, I’ve been obsessing over it, but your reply calmed my nerves. I’m going to take a hydrometer reading on Nov. 5th and hopefully bottle that day, wish me luck!
