  2. Thanks guys! @RickBeer and his Precise measurements... love them! Makes things easier!
  3. Hey guys! Picked up a bottle of StarSan ... Questions on StarSan.... Do you mix it in 5 gallons at a time like the bottle says or do you mix smaller amounts? How do you store it once it's mixed? How long can you keep it once it's mixed before it is no longer effective to use? Any general tips and tricks appreciated!
  4. Well... after 2 months of waiting... popped open first bottle of first batch (Classic American Light) 3 weeks fermentation 4 weeks carb/condition 3 days in fridge.... perfectly carbonated, clear, and tasted like a lite beer! I am happy with my achievement and I could not have done it without the help of everyone here on this forum, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you guys! Cheers to you!
  5. Well done @bikermedic108! I pop open my first tomorrow....
  6. Yes. 3 weeks is the recommended time for fermentation.
  7. Homebrew wont be ready till mid week, had a few nice local crafts though....
  8. yes, completely normal. sometimes the foam doesnt fully recede. give it another week then cold crash and all will be well
  9. It will change some but not sure on how much.
  10. From what i have read around here....Ales LOVE (wort temp) 65-68 during fermentation, 70-72 for carbonation (1-2 weeks) and then back to the mid 60's for conditioning......
  11. YAY!!!! Congratulations on the success!! I dont think the carbo drops added sweetness as the yeast would have eaten that up to create the CO2... but i could be wrong...
  12. Congrats!! im about a week or two away from testing out my first batch!
  13. If you follow the recipe exactly as it comes from MRB then the info they have on the site for it is going to be roughly accurate so as they say... Relax, dont worry, have a homebrew! (well in this case a local craft brew since this is your second batch and the first hasnt hit bottles OG: 1.055 (approx.) -- FG: 1.014 (approx.) Flavor: Malty ABV (alc/vol): 5.5% SRM (Color): 14 IBU (Bitterness): 21 BJCP Style: 15. Irish Beer - 15A. Irish Red
  14. Or get a can opener that cuts around the outside of the lid..... that's what I use.
  15. Just finished reading this book... I rather enjoyed the knowledge and information it has! Thank you @D Kristof for the recommendation!
