    Skeeter Pee

    just finished clearing my first batch of pee with sparkalloid.. racked into new container and backsweetened. its still tasting a little hot though.. should i wait on bottling even though the directions say there is no need to age?

    Skeeter Pee

    ive got my batch fermenting like a champ right now, but looking at the directions it calls for what seems to be like 4 or 5 racks into different vessels.. how important to you think this is? i understand its for clarity, but if the recipe calls for the use of a fining agent.. why all the...

    a very effective way to "start" skeeter pee

    yeah it does.. the thing thats tough for me is that ive never done a wine or anything other than beer so the activity is very different looking than what im used to. i see tiny bubbles rising to the top.. which i know is a good thing.. but at what bubbling point should i feel okay about adding...

    first brew question..

    I just racked my brew into secondary after 7 days, which from reading the forum I've got mixed readings. Went from 1.072 to 1.018 in that time.. brew instructions say I should rack to secondary before the fermentation is complete which I know has slowed but not completed. Just curious what the...

    Racking snafu question....

    Im curious as to the seasoned pros answer to this as well. Im a new brewer but as far as what I've read you should be fine as long as you didn't aerate it too much when you added it.
