  1. Can't I just pop it open, shove a half a cube in there and cap it back up? I do have 45 beers to do it to...
  2. My last batch was my first using a siphon. It was awesome!!!! So easy and all I did was put it in soapy water after and pump the heck out of it. Recommending that for sure This was a 5 gallon batch though. For normal 2 gallon batches I just just towards me. The new LBKs are slightly bigger as far as opening goes.
  3. People actually open up the bottles and dump more sugar in right? Are you supposed to add a little more or add what you should've in the beginning? If that makes sense. I have an under carbed batch too
  4. Y'all use a website to figure your ibu's and what not? Or is this a software?
  5. Great thanks guys. Brewing that up next. Then I'm almost all out of extract... Never thought I'd see the day
  6. I feel your pain. Make sure you're controlling the temp of the wort and not just the ambient air. Do you proof your yeast. It's like giving the yeasties 30 cans of redbull before they do their job. Are you aerating your wort before pitching the yeast? It helps reduce fermentation problems. Out of my first six batches only one has tasted like a real commercialized beer. Big hopes for batches 9 & 10 though.
  7. How do you feel about the same recipe but Smooth Soft packs instead of Robust? That would be an excellent way to use my last 2 cans of WDA.
  8. Rickbeer and I are thinking of starting a brewpub (because were best friends and what not) and we need someone to hand out towels and cologne in the mens room. Im thinking slym2none has a perfect personality for this position!
  9. I hold it up to the light / window while I pour and wait until I see a tiny cloud like fizz mass on about to come out, and then I stop. #perfectpour
  10. What do yall fill your air lock with? Ive always used water but i saw someone in another forum using Star San How long can I store my mixed StarSan? I store it right in my fermentation fridge. Guesstimate without using PH strips? Anyone ever try to bottle your overflow and drink it??? Dont lie... I read up on using quick oats with my new free stout refill but Im wondering if I need another grain to accompany it or can I just steep my oats and use the HME as my accompanying grains? Yall see that beer that has a hop cone in the bottle? IPA by Ale Asylum maybe? I think thats a waste of hops
