Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bleach in bottles

I think the bleach should take all the nasty malt and hop flavors out of the beer.  The wildflower Clorox tastes really good in a Hefe Weizen. :D

I used the Wyeast Bavarian lager smack pack.  Boosted the temp up to 52 and noticed more activity.  Thanks for the helpful advice. :)

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / More Yeast, Temp boost?
« on: January 08, 2010, 12:50:39 AM »
I started an approximate version of Imperial Pilsner from Extreme Brewing on 12/26.  Started with an OG of 1.1. Fermentation did not take off for close to a week. ( Storing carboy in 48 degree fridge)  On 1/8 I noticed no more bubbles in the airlock.  Took another hydrometer reading at 60 degrees with 1.060 as the result.  Bubbles started again after I put on another sanitized airlock.  My questions are should I just let it keep going again, should I adjust the temp, and will I need a diacetyl rest before adding the final hops for secondary fermentation.  This is my first batch in over 7 years and don't want to mess it up.  Any help is appreciated.
