  1. I think there a bunch of factors to determine how long,,,, a high abv definitely takes longer how complex your recipe is,,my pumpkin rising at four months was ok but after 8 months was fantastic ... I've tried beers if mine after only two weeks and some seemed very drinkable then,,but of course the ones that I waited for are always better... Now that I've been doing this over a year I bottle one small bottle for early tasting but pretty much try to wait at least six weeks now for the rest....
  2. I have yet to try this one.... They have on amazon for 16.85$... Think I'm gonna pick up three of em,,do one straight up,,see how it is ,then definitely tinker with...definitely wanna hear what ya do and how it comes out.... ?
  3. not at all... just gonna be a nice bubbly beer....
  4. I have three different spigots with all the LBKs I've purchased over the last year or so... I'll take pics but they're all different ,,how do I take apart all of em...
  5. not really,but maybe mad scientist in the making....
  6. I never said there wasn't a difference...just said I use table sugar and batch prime...
  7. I've been using table sugar since I've started,,dont see any reason to use anything else .... Dialed in where I like my carbonation,,,,, I usually go 48 grams for my ales and 36 grams for my stouts,,, I batch prime ,,,works for me.... Everyone is different so you'll have to play around till you find the levels you like..... Good luck...?
  8. welp I did it .. Went mad scientist ...velvet Elvis.... Gonna call it FAT ELVIS... 1 Bavarian wheat 1 st Patrick st 1 golden Lme 6 ounces 2 row 4 ounces red flaked wheat 4 ounces carapils 6 ounces cocoa nibs 7ounces lactose sugar safale -06 wheat yeast.... this is gonna be a beast 9 months.. My baby
  9. cold crashing is the way to go....with out going into the whole science of making beer...which I am know where close to understanding yet....but cold crashing will get you a very clear beer...simple......
  10. after I steep my grains I throw my peel in a hop bag and throw it in the boil for five mins or so,then flame out add everything else,,I usually just leave the peel in for the whole fermentation process... ,,,good luck!. ?

    Help

    pour some in a nice martini ?... Jk definitely let them condition longer..
  12. love it... Looks great!!!... Congrats.... Here's to many many more....?
  13. looks good.... Deer tenderloins.. Yummmm
  14. yes pretty much always go three weeks,,the third week lets the yeast clean up your beer of off flavors...
  15. then let it carb/condition for at least four weeks... The longer you wait the better your beer will be... Patience is your best friend in the brewing hobby.... Good luck!!! ?
  16. always go three weeks.. The third week is where the yeast cleans up those off flavors your tasting now...
  17. rinse well after using OBW...
  18. sure as long as they're not twist off,,,and you have caps and a capper, and of course washed and sanitized ....
  19. sure why not... Do a five gallon batch split between two LBKs...
  20. totally normal... Every batch will be a little different on how it looks,, my last batch of powerful patriot ale had these big hanging yeast cakes floating around right up until I cold crashed....my long play had very little krausen at the top,,, my orange wheat was about an inch away from the top of the LBK.......
  21. all I know is with flaked corn you need a grain like 2 row or 6 row to help convert the sugars or something...a base malt grain for conversion.....
