    No Air Lock Need Plan Two

    LOL Here is the update. The Foil air lock approach is working and just my luck I am having a rather violent fermentation. Bubbles coming out of the top. So things are going well. :-) It smells absolutely wonderful in and around the bucket. No time to get to home depot so I will have to go...

    No Air Lock Need Plan Two

    Great thanks. For now I will try the sanitized foil and watch closely to see if it blows off. On vacation and this IPA is my vacation brew. Broke the airlock in travel. Excited to see if it comes out. I might be a noobie but love this hobby. Now I have a memory. :-) Thanks for the...

    No Air Lock Need Plan Two

    Man - in the middle of brewing an IPA and discovered that my airlock is broken. No back up. Any suggestions or solutions to hold me over until I get an air look to replace it. I am not close to a brew store so it will take a few days to get one here online. Help. :-) What do you do when you...

    Condensation in Carboy

    Getting ready to bottle tonight. American light from Brewers Best. Not excited about it but wanted to try a light beer after my first batch. An IPA that turned out great! Anyway, condensation on the inside glass of the carboy. Thinking it through and considering the process it makes...

    What are some of the mistakes you made...where your beer still turned out great!

    Thanks for both of your feedback. Fermentation started strong so I suspect I am fine. To me I am not worried about losing a batch. :-) Sounds like it happens to the best. :-) Cheers

    What are some of the mistakes you made...where your beer still turned out great!

    This weekend, second batch ever. Chilling my wort in the kitchen sink. My wife put her hands in the ice water to see the temp. Picked her hand up - and moved it across the brew pot. Saw a drip in slow motion come off her hand and into the wort. It was like a nightmare, virus spreading...

    priming sugar to beer when hot

    I have followed the instructions on my brewers best IPA kit for bottling. Told me to dissolve my sugar in boiling water, put in the pale and add beer. Did that. Thought about it. Should I have let the temperature cool before adding the beer to my bucket? Seems the high temp would kill yeast...

    Broken Air Lock Secondary Fermintation

    First batch and making an IPA using the Brewers Best kit. Moved to a glass carboy for secondary fermentation and noticed that my air lock had a crack in it. Had a very aggressive primary fermentation. I am pretty sure I am ok but wanted to ask. The air lock is holding water and it is holding...
