    Author: Paul Amico These days, there are numerous types of IPA that have their own unique qualities, though one thing they all share is a strong hop character. One of the most popular methods for imparting beer with heaps of hop aroma is dry hopping, which involves adding a dose of hops to the beer

    Author: Steve Thanos Every once in a while, a commercial beer comes along that I feel is so uniquely good that I feel inspired to brew a version myself. Unfortunately, attempts to clone recipes are often unfruitful, as brewers are left to guess what ingredients are used in the original recipe, which given the abundance

  • Is this a Pellicle?
    by invalid@example.com (homebrewingrocks) on September 26, 2022 at 6:56 am

    Beginner here on my 3rd batch. It is a Single Hop IPA kit from Craft A Brew. My OG was 1.063 and FG=1.010. Fermented 2 weeks at 68°F in a plastic Nortbern Brewer bucket w/ airlock. I never opened lid until kegging day. A. Is this a pellicle? B. I will not be brewing any sour beers, so do I need to replace all my plastic equipment? C. I kegged it. Tasted a small sample and it tastes fine. It’s safe to drink right? D. Does anyone see mold? Thank you very much! I’ve learned… Read more

  • Is a cup too much juice too much for the yeast?
    by invalid@example.com (Dex Pistol) on September 26, 2022 at 6:54 am

    Hello. I’m making 6 gallons apple cider with EC-1118 and nutrient. The way the juice is packaged I have 22.89 litres of juice. 6 gallons is 22.7 litres. Since each packet of EC-1118 is rated up to 6 gallons, would it be better to remove the 0.8 cup of juice extra, or does that small an amount not make a difference?

  • Bottling carb issue with priming sugar vs fizz drops
    by invalid@example.com (youngson616) on September 26, 2022 at 6:05 am

    Ive been having a recurring problem of my beer bottles not carbing with priming sugar. I recently made two batches, using priming sugar in one and opted to do the NB fizz drops for the other. Its been 10 days since botting, and the fizz drop beers are carbed and ready to drink. Once again – the priming sugar batch – flat. Does anyone know if the priming sugar takes longer?? Its a hefe extract kit

    Howdy. I have a bunch of screw top Stoli bottles, as well as a screw top wine bottle. Assuming I screw the top tightly after bottling, would there be any issues with carbing in these bottles?

  • Barke Pils FG 1014
    by /u/Daedalu5 on September 26, 2022 at 6:38 am

    Brewed a 100% Weyerman Barke Pilsner a couple weeks ago. Did a Hochkurz mash, single decoction, fermenting with 34/70. OG of 1052. Big healthy pitch, took off great On day 16 of fermentation, 9.6c whole time. Gravity is sitting at 1014 and has been for a couple days now which has me concerned. Will give it more time of course but should I be considering adding enzymes or anything while it’s still semi active? submitted by /u/Daedalu5 [link] [comments]

    Welcome to the Daily Q&A! Are you a new Brewer? Please check out one of the following articles before posting your question: How do I check my gravity? I don’t see any bubbles in the airlock OR the bubbling in the airlock has slowed. What does that mean? Does this look normal / is my batch infected? Or if any of those answers don’t help you please consider visiting the /r/Homebrewing Wiki for answers to a lot of your questions! Another option is searching the subreddit, someone may have asked the same question before! However no question is too “noob” for this thread. No picture is too tomato to be evaluated for infection! Even though the Wiki exists, you can still post any question you want an answer to. Also, be sure to vote on answers in this thread. Upvote a reply that you know works from experience and don’t feel the need to throw out “thanks for answering!” upvotes.

  • The Oktoberfest gambit
    by /u/unique_name4 on September 26, 2022 at 2:39 am

    Wanted to run a plan past this sub before I end up with a disappointing festbier as I haven’t done any pressure fermenting before. I’m a student going home for Thanksgiving next weekend and I won’t be home again until Christmas break. Would it be possible to brew an Oktoberfest beer and then use a keg as a pressure fermentation vessel and lager it for the 3 months I am away? The plan being that the beer would carbonate itself and I wouldn’t have to force carb it when I come home for the holidays. I have never done any pressure fermentation before and I’m worried about off-flavours from skipping the primary fermentation. I’m also worried that having the entire fermentation happen in a sealed keg would result in a massively over-carbonated beer. Just curious what people’s thoughts are or if anyone has advice about pressure fermenting in general. Cheers! submitted by /u/unique_name4 [link] [comments]

  • Spigot has smallest leak. Will this affect the fermentation?
    by /u/SeanWhelan1 on September 26, 2022 at 1:50 am

    I use a glass 1 gallon fermenter with a spigot (from northern brewer). During the sanitation process I didnt see any leaks. Usually I fill it up with water + star san, then inspect for any leakage before filling with beer. I check for wet spots on the area its on etc. It seemed good to go. However, once I poured the beer and checked on it there seems to be the smallest of small leaks near the spigot hole. I placed a napkin near the spigot to keep an eye and there’s 3 – 5 drops in a course of 8 hours. I can’t tighten it anymore, its the 0 ring around it that seams to be the source. Will this affect fermentation at all or am I overthinking this? Specifically with the small amount coming out. submitted by /u/SeanWhelan1 [link] [comments]
