  1. Hi guys, on 9/3/12 I tried doing an all grain brew. I did brew in a bag. I got an og of 1.048. Today I got 1.042? fermenting temp was 70-75. I think the yeast that came with the kit must have craped out. Thinking of pitching new yeast. Got the mix from Brooklyn brewery it is the bruxelles blond. dont seem to be have luck with all grain. but I'll keeping trying. thanks forany input
  2. Well this turned out to be a disaster. First off I forgot to recalibrate my refract meter. Probable why I only got an OG of 1.024. Next after 5 days of fermenting. I was running late for work & when I switch out the frozen water bottle in my igloo cooler I must have placed it in a bad spot. Because next time I checked the keg was ¾ emptied, the bottle had pressed on the spigot lever. Beer all over the bottom of the cooler. Beer smelled great though. Lesion learned I picked up some new spigots with twist valves.
  3. forgny to say 8/14 was also my 52th b-day any idears what I should call this beer?
  4. have'nt brewed in a long time, but Im back. On 8/14. I brewed my first batch of all grain. :banana: . it a peanutbutter stout I got from the brooklyn brew shop. I used the brew in a bag . My og was 1.024 I'll let everone know how it comes out in about 7 weeks. wish me luck
  5. Took a little break from brewing. Decided to try the Nogs orange sider. Used 2 gal. apple cider , 1 lb. lactose, 600gr brown sugar ( could not find my zester) so just used 1 pint Tropicana pure premium orange juice ¼ tsp cinimin ¼ tsp pumkin pie spice . Used. Used Champaign yeast. Brewed on 5/27 my og was 1.083 today 5/31 its at 1.026 . I ‘m going to let it ferment for 3 weeks. I ‘m guesting I should it carb & condition about 4 months?

  7. I will be bottleing tomorow. 4/4. I want to try using dme. to prim with. how much should I use?. same as sugar 3/4 teaspoon. thanks. Ed
  8. Welcom to the Borg we have beer. I dont thing 6 deg difference in temp. is that bad. But you should get something like a igloo cooler that you can put the keg into with 1 or 2 zrozen bottles of water. try getting some oxcy-clean free. to soak the keg in.
  9. First off Welcome to the Borg. We have Beer! To answer your question, Yes if you make rootbeer in the fermentor you use for beer. it will have an affect on batches of beer brew. best to order a fermentor to use only for rootbeer. You should also get a hydromoter, and a extra fermentor for beer. this way you can brew more beer.
  10. On Monday 3/15 I brewed up a batch of the Stickty Wiicket Oatmeal Stout with dme and chocolate & crystal 40 malt. been fermenting a 60 I went to swap frozen water bottles & saw I had a little blow over. The lid did not come off. its still snug. I wiped off outside of fermenter. Should I loosen the lid a little? Thanks Ed
  11. on monday 3/14 I brewed up 2 cans of the Sticky wicket oatmeal stout with 1 ld light dme, 1 oz chocolet male & 1 0z crystel malt. used s-05 yeast 11 grams pack. OG was 1.060. 4:00 am this morning has a good 2 in of foam on top. when I got home from work @ 415 pm checked my sample it was at 1.050. Plane on leting this ferment for 21 days . anyone think I should tranfer to secondary after 7 days?
