General Homebrew Discussion / Did something go wrong?
« on: March 30, 2013, 10:38:37 PM »
Look at the amount of trub. I know it doesn't look like much but its been fermenting for a week untouched and the bottom 4 inches of the carboy is this weird color. I've never had that much sediment at the bottom before. Its a blue moon clone partial with rice hulls and oats. I had them in a grain bag and the grain bag had no holes and was brand new. I put a tsp of coriander and 2 tbsp of sweet orange peel but I don't think either one of those ingredients has anything to do with this. 

General Homebrew Discussion / Absolute NEWB with a question

First of all, hello! My name is brad. I have been brewing for many years but have mostly stuck to the kit stuff. I recently moved into the boiled kits to hopefully some day make recipes from complete scratch. So anyways, I have a batch of what I call "lake Houston pale ale" because its literally made from the water from the lake.
My question is I'm trying not to force carbonate the beer in my corny this time, I'm trying to add about 1/3 cup priming sugar to the batch and let it carbonate naturally. I put about 5psi on the corny to help with the seal. Should I just let it sit for two weeks no matter what the internal pressure ends up being or do I need to keep relieving the pressure down to 5psi? What's a safe pressure level? Obviously since I put some sugar in there the pressure keeps rising. Thanks for everyone's help WAY in advance. Cheers
