  1. Is there trub on the bottom? If there is then its fine and RDWHAHB. If not then we need more information such as procedures, pitch temps to tell what happened.
  2. I go rabbit hunting in that area between you and Edmore.
  3. Congratulations on the first brew. +1 to what others have said about flavor. I had the same taste but was almost gone after 5 weeks and couldn't taste it after 6.
  4. I find Screwy's calcs very helpful found here
  5. Thanks for the tip, I'm not up to AG brewing yet so I don't have mine set up yet but I do intend on trying my first AG by the end of this month if weather permits.
  6. Hi and Welcome, Along with the stickies you can find on this forum I would also suggest reading John Palmer's How to Brew, you can find that here. Don't be afraid to ask question, many here have answered many of the same question and will still happily help. And please, STOP YELLING
  7. I find this chart to be helpful. [attachment=12578]hopsgraph.jpg[/attachment]

I heard it that way in a video and that's not how I would have pronounced it. Yes its supposed to be pronounced 'troob' but I say 'trub' instead. Otherwise its close to rhyming with another word that usually gets me into trouble.

Ya know so far I've had the gas (just ask my wife) but not the other (knock on wood).the other usually hit me the next morning, all part of the hangover. the trub is full of vitamin b and protein. Maybe that why, I just don't get hangovers. The worst I get is cotton mouth and hunger. Once I eat and drink some water I'm fine and ready to go again.
  10. I was able to build my stir plate for about 12 - 15 dollars and that includes shipping a pulse width modulator from Japan.

Its more equipment to clean but IMO easier to do. Cold crashing would also help. No Straining after fermenting make good beer taste bad. :sick: Now I'm confused. If I'm going to transfer to a second LBK, why can't I run it through a strainer? Is it the strainer that's adds oxygen? My ultimate goal is to keep all the stuff floating on top out of my bottles. Its how it runs through the strainer. Even when racking to a secondary or bottling bucket you want to be careful to not splash the beer. Its best to start it out slowly until the end of the hose is covered then you can open it full. At this point I prefer the bucket as I can use that motion to swirl the beer any sediment is then moved and collected in the middle and I siphon to the bottles from the side. The consensus is cold crash for a few day prior to bottling day.

  14. I've done both. When I'm at home I enjoy it out of a nice beer clean pint glass so I can enjoy the whole experience of looks, taste, aroma, nice foamy head, and watching the beautiful lace. How ever I have taken some of my home brew to a few parties and enjoyed it straight from the bottle. I do prefer it from the glass.
  15. Wish I could help with that but I don't have Beersmith set up with a mash yet as I'm still doing extracts.
