  1. I really appreciate everyone's input. Monday is zesting day for my wheat brew, so wish me luck!
  2. Not to sound totally stupid (I’m the OP noob), but when do you add the juice? At the same time as the vodka/zest?
  3. You guys are awesome. Thanks so much for your input. These forums are really helping a noob get better at this.
  4. Awesome! Due to the way the beer looks now, I am totally going to cold crash, I just wasn't sure about that mess on top, but I've been watching some videos and am starting to think it's perfectly normal. Actually, it's quite a bit less than I've seen in some of the videos. Thanks!
  5. Hi guys. I've posted a few questions already, but I'm a total noob. I'm about to bottle my first batch (Diablo IPA). It has been fermenting for 15 days. The beer still looks cloudy, and there is a lot of yeast like bubbles/sediment floating on top of the beer. Is this normal? I'm questioning weather I should bottle or let it set another few days. I did taste it, and it wasn't sweet, it tasted like flat beer. But, the stuff on top makes me think it still might be active? Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  6. Awesome. This is exactly the type of thing I was looking for. Thank you!
  7. Ok, so I've been making basic Mr. Brew beers to get myself started. Now, I want to take the Bavarian Weissbier kit, and add some orange zest to create a light fruity aroma. So, this will be my first time adding something to my brew. It appears that maybe the zest of 1-2 oranges would be enough for 2 gallons, correct? And when is the best time to add the zest? Thanks in advance. I am a huge fan of delicious beer, but making my own is still new to me.
