    Density decreases but no bubbles

    Hi, Reaching out to the community for a brew we made last Sunday. At the end of the brewing, we diluted the yeast in slightly warm water before adding it to the fermentation bucket. We also added sugar (17 g/l) as per the recipe in the brew kit we bought. Here are pictures of density measures...

    Saving My Mead

    Hi all, I decided to make my first mead batch yesterday night. I will start by saying I decided on making a strawberry-pineapple mead, and I wanted this batch to be a sweet mead. The whole thing may have been a bit more advanced than I was ready for, and I made what was probably a few rookie...

    Help? Maybe?

    I started a one gallon batch of mead last night. It is my first time, woke up this morning to look at it pictures to show, is something wrong with it? Do I need to fix it? How do I fix it? What went wrong if anything?

    Strange Bubble Issue

    Hello there, First time wine brewer here. I have a weird situation and couldn't find any explanation on the net. The problem is when I place the airlock, it starts bubbling approximately in 1 hour. It keeps bubbling for 3-5 hours. Then it stops, water in the airlock stays at the same levels on...

    Bubbling for over a month

    Just did a small batch pilsner smash and noticed it bubbling in the demijohns for a very long time. Did a gravity reading and it had definitely finished up but it was still bubbling like crazy, this is over a month in primary. I bottled and primed with dextrose today. I got a mentos and coke...

    Another One of Those No Fermentation-Activity Posts

    Hi all, Sorry to kick a dead horse. I've seen a lot of "no bubbling" posts, but none that hit the mark for my situation, at least not exactly. Here's the scoop. 1. I'm 48hrs past pitching 2 packets of White Labs Belgian Wit Ale Yeast (within date), which I let warm up to 70F and agitated (no...

    Beginner Needs Advice (Mead Stopped Bubbling)

    I recently started trying to brew mead (June 2nd), I used 3 flasks of water (0,75l), into which I gave 165g/~0.35 pounds of honey each, as well as 6-8 raspberries, and added some common bakers yeast (just to give it a try before I move on to better yeasts). It started bubbling an hour after I...

    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...

    Cloudy secondary.

    Hello everyone, This is my first time posting to The Forum. I have some questions about a cider I was making. My first attempt at cider actually. I got a cider brewing kit from Midwestern Brewing Company. I then received a 6.5 gallon carboy from a friend. I picked up some freshly pressed cider...

    Mead bottles under pressure!

    After 3.5 months I bottled mead because it was at 1.000 F.G. I opened one flip top bottle and it foamed up like crazy. Why? after 3 1/2 months would it still be fermenting?
