  1. i bottled 3 or 4 days ago in the 1 liter pet bottles, i used the 1 3/4 sugar measer that came with the brew utensils package....
  2. i bottle primed my beer and then realized i didnt add enough sugar...can i go back and open the bottled and add more sugar, or is this batch doomed to be flat beer.
  3. so last week i brewed up a batch of hop head red wtihout booster, and added honey..i just took a sample of it, wow..this beer is going to be awesome...it is ready to bottle so i might be doing that tonight.. i just bottled, the recipee i came up with will be botteling hop head read and last night i just brewed witty monk... mmmmmmmm...go pipe line.
  4. i just bough "LA's Totally awesome oxyclean chlorone free" cleaner...havnt used it yet...would this be safe to use?

    The Plan

    i was thinking about it and i will probably give this a couple more days in the keg, maybe bottle it on fathers day...a few more days in the keg shouldnt hurt.

    The Plan

    still a little bit of foam on top, but i did another hydro, same as yesturday, 1.010..still sweet.

    The Plan

    ok so i took a hydro reading today it was at 1.010, og was 1.042.. anyways i tasted it it was still sweet... should i let this sit longer?
  8. But sometimes you just want a beer.

    The Plan

    No the water was not too hot, oh boy maybe 10 minutes after i added it it definatly jump startedmore kerousen... i did the same this with my hop head red, i omitted the booster and added maybe a cup or 2 to the hop boil...these are both going to be good.

    The Plan

    added the honey today, i know a lil bit early, but the us-05 yeast is a beast...used 1 cup warm water and mixed in 1/2 cup of honey...stirred and added to keg.....mmmmmmmmmm...i cant wait for this one

    The Plan

    ok here is another question, how do i add 1/2 cup of honey...do i warm it up and just pour it in the fermentor?
  12. Cold crashing is basically a preferance, it help with the clarity and amount of trub after botteling..as for the one step it is a no rinse sanitizer, so a drop or 2 will not hurt your brew one bit.

    The Plan

    did i use too much yeast using a whole packet of the us-05 yeast?
  14. Chugalot

    The Plan

    i was hoping to add a little bit of flavor by boiling the hops for 15 minutes, i wish i had known it wouldnt...i got my hop boil info from http://brewsupplies.com/hop_characteristics.htm anyways it was my first time doing a hops boil, so i am very excited too see how this will turn out..checked the keg this morning, not much keroseun..but the yeast is doing its job
