    by Jordan Folks on May 29, 2023 at 10:00 am

    Author: Jordan Folks An essential part of beer, carbonation occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is dissolved into a liquid, which requires both pressure and a gas source.

  • Strawberry yeast water …
    by (lacto) on June 8, 2023 at 6:48 am

    Hi folks, Just saw a video for making strawberry yeast water. So after 5 days it seems to want to climb out of the bottle. So I want to attempt at using it to make a 5 leaf wine. Any tips? There is about 200ml of it and I intend to add all of it to 2 liters of strained leaf juice. What say you?

  • First time water adjustment.
    by /u/Lower-Tank-9742 on June 8, 2023 at 5:45 am

    Tomorrow I’ll be doing my first brew with salts. I’ve punched in my water numbers to the Brewfather app for Melbourne water, which is quite soft I’m led to believe. I’m just wondering if these numbers seem about right before I move on TIA. (this is for an American pale ale water profile) Calcium chloride 2.4g in total. Epsom salt 4.3g in total. Gypsum 9.5g in total. submitted by /u/Lower-Tank-9742 [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. That will help distinguish community trusted advice from hearsay… at least somewhat! submitted by /u/AutoModerator [link] [comments]

  • Advice on capping bottles?
    by /u/10art1 on June 8, 2023 at 2:44 am

    I was looking at bottles on amazon and honestly they’re pretty expensive and looking at the reviews is kind of sus… people saying their bottles exploded, or it arrived with obvious manufacturing defects… I have a case of angry orchard, my uncle drinks beer a bit, and I think I can scrounge up just what we drink and reuse those bottles, at least I know they’re commercial, and they were destined for the recycling anyway. But what’s the deal with bottle caps? I heard that there’s several different sizes. How do I know what size to get? And what should I look out for when buying bottle caps? I read that it’s good to get caps with an “oxygen barrier”. I don’t really know what that is. Is there anything else to look out for? Anything to look out for when buying the actual capping mechanism? submitted by /u/10art1 [link] [comments]

  • I bought flaked rice on accident. Wat do?
    by /u/insertcleverSNhere on June 8, 2023 at 2:28 am

    Excited to buy a bunch of beer ingredients I ordered 10 lbs of flaked rice instead of rice hulls. I like Japanese lagers and I’ve heard rice is used in them, so maybe that is an option. I have a bunch of azacca hops laying around as well. Thoughts on what to do with all these extra ingredients I now have? Any recipes anyone can share that are heavy on flaked rice? submitted by /u/insertcleverSNhere [link] [comments]
