    Lightning Fast Fermentations?

    I've started brewing at my new place after a downtime of almost a year, so I'm still shaking out the cobwebs and the rust. All of my brews of late have been having some incredibly fast ferments, my latest Bitter dropped from 1.048 to 1.020 in two days and even a belgian pale I did previously...

    Quick Gravity Question

    I brewed a 22L batch of porter on 18/11/07 and prepared the yeast into a small starter using the a dash of the LME i had floating around. It got off to a roaring start in the jug and started to tear through my wort when pitched. It's now 3 days later (21/11/07) and the gravity has dropped from...

    It's Like A Friggin' Rubber Rubicks Cube...

    To the point: My rubber stopper sitting in the top of my glass carboy is defective. That is, it wont.... stop. It keeps on wanting to slide out, so it's now perched quite precariously, kinda wedged just ever so slightly in the top of my carboy with the airlock in. However I am quite concerned as...

    Creative Ideas For A Stout

    I've just done an extract stout, I've mixed it up to be about 15L, OG was 1.042 and it's bubbling away nicely at this lovely 23C summer weather we've got in Melbourne. I'm just looking for something creative to do to the sucker, either now or at the secondary fermentation. I was thinking of...
