Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermenter?

I started a sour mash last night for what will be a semi-funky Saison. I have a session IPA (missed my OG by a lot and ended up with a low abv, high ibu beer) that I really need to get into bottles...

I built the exact same controller to that exact same thread.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Yeah, it's a full size fridge and I've been using it to cold crash, but now I'll be able to hold temps anywhere I want them. Been sitting rock solid at 68 all week.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I've got a Wit and a Coffee Stout in my fermenters right now. Might try to bottle this weekend. On Monday I should be getting grains to do 3 different SMaSH's, but I'm not sure when I'll have the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I've got ingredients for an AG coffee stout and an extract Wit on the way. Should be here next week. Might do a big brew day next weekend depending on what I've got going on.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I've got a blonde (AG) and an amber (extract) in primary right now. Probably bottle the blonde this weekend and I've got plans to brew a big IIPA on April 13th so I'll probably reuse the yeast cake...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

My vanilla bourbon stout got bottled on Friday. It tasted great with just a little hint of vanilla. I'm hoping the bourbon I added at bottling with bring out a little more of that as it conditions....

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Should be bottling my vanilla bourbon stout today. It sat a few days longer in secondary than I had intended, I hope it didn't get too much vanilla.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

A fermenter should never be completely air-tight or it's just a bomb waiting to go off. That's why we use airlocks, which allow the Co2 to escape, but don't allow oxygen to get in. The sweetness...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Happened on a store selling Simcoe pellets while we were out of town so I grabbed half a pound of them. Planning out a Pliny clone and another high test hoppy IPA to use my bounty.

Today I'll...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Sometime this week I'll be racking my stout into secondary on top of some vanilla beans that have been soaking in a little bourbon for a couple weeks. Smells awesome, can't wait to see how this one...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I bottled my first brew (California-style Pale, probably end up similar to Sierra Nevada) on Saturday. Ended up yielding about 4.6 gallons, which is just slightly more than I anticipated. Yesterday...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Looking like I should get my bottles this week, so my first brew should get bottled this weekend. Then I'll be brewing a vanilla bourbon stout.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Checked the gravity last night and I'm about 1.012 so it looks like fermentation is about done. I think another two weeks in the primary to let it clear a little and I'll bottle it. I tasted the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Yeah, it was about 70-75 degrees when I checked, so that brings it up to 1.041-1.042 and I did a partial boil so it probably wasn't completely mixed with the clean water at that point. I'm not too...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Ok, got all my stuff from Midwest today and got my first batch brewed and into the fermenter. It's definitely a learning experience and next time I know what to watch out for and do differently.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Ugh, I was hoping to be able to brew my first batch this coming weekend, but my stuff from Midwest was supposed to ship last Friday and still hasn't been picked up by Fedex yet. I guess maybe next...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

From everything I've read you need to just let them sit in the bottles and give it time. Give them a few weeks and give it a try and it should get a lot better. This is all advice pertaining to all...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I think I'll just go for some new bottles. I don't have anywhere near that many empties and I don't drink that much beer over the course of a month. Plus I was thinking of going with 22 oz bottles...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Well, I placed an order today for some equipment to get into homebrewing. I should have pretty much everything I need to get started except bottles and an ingredient kit, both of which I'll be going...
