    Bottle Storage.

    I stored them in milk crates and then just had a sheet or two over them. I also had some in sealed storage boxes from Bunnings. It would have been expensive to store them all like this (we had 200-250+ bottleS) and the milk crates were also much easier to move around once the bottles were...

    First time brewing need help

    As stated below, it'll be fine. Just be careful of stirring lots until dissolved so it doesn't sit on the bottom and scorch. Good luck and welcome to homebrewing!

    Ginger beer from scratch

    Made one a little while back. It was bone dry. No sweetness to talk of. Mine definitely required sweetening at serving and I used Sodastrean style cordials. I definitely couldn't drink it without it!

    Damn Good Stout recipes

    My o My only food for thought is in regards to the bottling. For a beer with such a high ABV it may be worth looking into/researching adding yeast at bottling time. The yeast would no doubt have been worked hard chewing through so many fermentables and may have not been restarted at bottling...

    WLP800 yeast: What is the recommended temperature to make a starter for Bohemian lager?

    The yeast (lager even) can survive and thrive at much higher temperatures (i.e. for starters) the recommended temps are foe using the yeast in 'beer' to have the best 'taste'. I.e. no off flavours, unwanted esters etc. You can certainly have the starter at those lower temps if you want, it...
