    Boil went out after 30 mins

    Good day! I was brewing a Session IPA and my boiler (basically a 25L jam cooker) just stopped working after 30-35 mins into the boil. It's always worked fine until this batch, despite spending a bit of time fiddling with it, I just couldn't get it to start working again. At this point, the...

    Question about airlock for primary

    Yeah I was thinking I would still need it. Thank you for the advice with the saran wrap! :) Might be good enough until a new airlock arrives.

    Question about airlock for primary

    Good afternoon :yes: Quick question... I've had an IPA in primary for exactly 3 weeks and I was going to dry hop it today before I bottle it next week. Do you think I need to keep an airlock on it after 3 weeks or can I put a cap on the carboy after I dry hop it? I ask because I ordered a...

    Olive Taste and Smell in my beer?

    I think this may be the issue. I put about the same amount of yeast in as I did for a previous Pale Ale, I thought that should be adequate. (I'm fairly new to home brewing) On top of this, it's recently become summer and every day is about 25° C, and my apartment is quite warm. I'm not sure...

    Olive Taste and Smell in my beer?

    Hey, I tried looking around for an explanation is similar threads, but the only useful answer I could find was possible oxidization... One person said old hops, but I doubt that's the case for me at least. Another said that it may have come out of primary too early. Does anyone else have any...

    Alright, my fiancé's family arrives on the 26th, so I might open a couple at the 2 and a half week point, and we'll just have to wait for the rest! :) Thanks!

    Question about primary fermentation.

    Fortunately my building is over 100 years old and the location I store the bottles in is about 14 inches thick of bricks on 3 sides! :p But I will definitely take this into consideration and wait a few more days before bottling just to be safe! :) Would you still recommend about 3 weeks for...

    Question about primary fermentation.

    It funny you should mention if it is warmer. Yes I'm doing it at room temperature and in the past 2 weeks the weather changed from -3°c to +20°. So I can only imagine that my entire house is warmer too. I'll get a hydrometer soon! Thank you! :)

    Question about primary fermentation.

    Hey! Thank you for a super quick reply! "Krauser" is what I meant! I'm still pretty new to home brewing... I've read a few mosts that say 99 times out of 100 the air lock is not an indicator for how it's going. What other information can I provide to be more helpful?

    Question about primary fermentation.

    Hey folks! First I just wanted to say thanks to all the people out there that put time into helping others with their home brewing questions! I've gained a lot of knowledge just from reading the forum posts, but now I have a question that I can't quite find the answer to. (I'm pretty new to all...
