Kegging and Bottling / Failed carbonation ....?
« on: January 05, 2012, 02:07:34 AM »
My first 5 gal all grain batch (a Pale Ale) did not carbonate at was a huge disappointment. I am not sure if there was a problem with the bottle caps, I didnt use enough sugar, or there was some other problem. I have never had this problem before...with more than a dozen extract brews. Is there any way to recover this brew (re-bottle) to get it carbonated? The brew is not too bad....but just tastes flat.

Any help is appreciated!

Yeast and Fermentation / Ferment 3 gal batch in a 5 gal bucket????
« on: January 05, 2012, 02:00:52 AM »
Is there a problem with fermenting 3 gallons in a 5 gallon fermentation bucket? I thought I heard or read at sometime that you wanted to have as little space in the bucket as possible, but I'm not sure about this. I have a grain bill that would be good for a 3 gal batch that I'd like to BIAB, but only have a 5 gal ferm bucket. What problems could this cause?

Any help is appreciated!
