  1. wasnt prepaired for the 9 hours ago, dude. my bad, though sorry
  2. not at all.....just let it go 3 weeks before bottling, you are golden
  3. all has been stated so........................................................................................................................ welcome to the borg jumiller78 :cheers:
  4. how long ago did you put it away?, if it was just a few minutes, go ahead and stir it up the put it where it will stay between 68 degrees F and 72 degrees F. leave it there for 3 weeks then bottle. EDIT: 9 hours????? wow, never mind just let it go for 3 weeks do NOT stir now, do NOT shake. after 3 weeks just bottle and let it sit for 4 weeks at room temp. then put one, two or three in the fridge a day to a week before drinking
  5. it seems last years batch of new brewers is starting to use the 3-4 method of describing the fermenting and carbing/conditioning phase. it is basically the same as 3-2-2, however, it is based on a football play. 3-4, 3 weeks in the fermentor and 4 weeks in the bottle at room temp then a day to a week in the fridge for "cold conditioning" or just cooling before drinking.
  6. after you've been here awhile, "Radical Brewing" by Randy Mosher. also, get "yeast" by Chris White with Jamil Zainasheff
  7. welcome to the borg bernarde :cheers:
  8. i just dump some in my cleaning bucket and put some in each of my bottles and let them sit over night. all i have to do then is rinse them out. as for how much i just put a scoop in i dont really measure.
  9. welcome to the borg Justice. also, to help with the waiting part, go get yourself some craft beers from the store, i personally like sam adams, but any kind with the pry off top will work. drink the free beer inside them and then rinse the bottles, when you get enough wash them in oxyclean free and if you can remove the labels and you got some bottles for bottling day. :cheers:
  10. + 1000 to what everyone said sooooooo............. welcome to the borg bradmecca :cheers:
  11. "Hominid" post=307050 said:Hey gents, I'm new here... like the original poster, I have a couple refills that are old, and I will indeed just "brew it", but I'm wondering if the yeast itself in the little envelopes... are they OK too? They've been stored in a box in the basement, so it's been relatively dry and cool. The 2 refills are from 2008 & 2009. Thanks in advance! :chug: i do believe you need new yeast, as philm00x said. US-05 is my normal goto yeast. it is a good yeast. Now, i would be a bit worried about the HMEs that you are talking about. they more than likely are ok, but their profile will also be a bit off. but if you brew them as is, and they taste good, good on you. oh, and welcome to the borg :cheers:
  12. all has been stated, so......................................welcome to the borg kc2hsu :cheers:
