  1. Also, you have to account for the temperature at which you took your gravity readings. Your MB hydro should have come with a chart giving you different readings depending on temps.

I know once I bottle I take the FG and multiply it by 131. If someone could give me an idea if I'm heading on the right track it would be greatly appreciated. I just brewed the Oval Office honey amber. Followed the recipe as stated. MB said you should have an OG of approximately 1.078 for this beer. I came in with an OG of 1.056. I know I didn't do anything wrong and I know how to read a hydro. I think MB uses a higher OG and ABV than what you will really get. Don't be discouraged, just focus on making a good beer!
  3. So I am bottling an international ale next week. Instructions state to ferment at a constant temperature of 55-68 degrees. My question is, when I bottle the beer, do I carb/condition at the same 55-68 degree range or should I go to the 68-76 degree range?
  4. Yes I did. I wanted to see how the head retention was. Needless to say, it was good! Lol

  7. I tried uploading it from my phone.... I will have to get it done with my computer.
  8. This was a good beer. I did a middle pour to check out head retention and it was great! This was my first IPA and it is a little too bitter for my taste but it's a good beer!
  9. So, I brewed a batch of beer last night. I was in a hurry and pitched my yeast at about 84 degrees. I checked it out this morning and it dropped to 76 degrees and it was fermenting away. I dropped the temp in the room (opened a window). Question is, I know the yeast didn't die, but if I get my temps to about 70 degrees, am I still going to have off flavors?

Most consider it bad form to make multiple posts of the same content in differnet topics especially when there is a dedicated topic for first pour pics. http://community.mrbeer.com/forum/12-community-drain-pipe/69154-first-pour-sticky Thanks for this! Goll, if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have noticed I accidentally posted this twice! Keeping forums in check one person at a time....
  11. Yeah, im not too upset by cracking open one bottle early. It still tasted pretty good and just makes me more excited for it all to be done aging! :stout:
  12. [attachment=10603]Firstpourwittymonk.jpg[/attachment] So this is my first pour of my first brew. Witty Monk Witbier. I know, I know, I broke the cardinal rule of letting it condition for the full 4 weeks, but, I couldnt resist! Had decent head retention but still needed the time to condition. All in all, it was a good beer and I cant wait for it to fully condition and clear up! I went three weeks in the fermenter and two weeks in the bottle.
