This Thursday will be 3 weeks in primary at 62*.  I'm going to bring it into the 70* house Friday because I need the fermentation chamber for a beer I'm going to brew that day. 

Here's the question: For best practices, how long can it (should it) be left in primary before racking to secondary?

My latest purchase turned out nicely.  20 Torano Hogshead robusto's for $40.  A very nice smoke for $2 a stick!  here's where I found them:  http://www.cigarsinternational.com/cigars/80032/torano-hogshead/

Other Fermentables / Apple juicer setup
« on: April 13, 2016, 09:23:45 PM »
I'm thinking about buying an apple juicer setup.  I am wondering if I can get some recommendations.  Does anyone make a crusher/press combo?  I'm thinking it would be nice to have it all in one unit.

It takes 10-12 years and 8-10 million to bring a hop to production. Why not protect your investment?

People often forget this point in a discussion of this sort.  Thank you for the reminder.

Beer Recipes / Re: Belgian Red X
« on: April 08, 2016, 01:21:37 PM »
I recently brewed an IIPA, which had 50% Red X, 45% Pilsner and 5% sugar.  It was a beautiful color though not red.  Do you find the 100% Red X a little cloying?  I found the flavor to be a bit like a crystal malt which makes me wonder.

The bottom line is that I want a RED beer, but one that tastes good and which showcases the hops.

My experience is somewhat similar to yours however I have found the sweetness to decrease considerably after a few weeks. My friend did a red IPA with it and had the same experience.

Very interesting!  I may go 100% next time.

And other places as well.  This one seems to be the most up to date as well as to-the-point.  I love instructions that are not overly wordy.

Other Fermentables / Degassing
« on: April 08, 2016, 11:50:29 AM »
It seems odd to me that for days 1-7 I need to degass my melomel twice a day, but on day 8 and beyond there is no need.  More specifically I am curious why the instructions are not a taper off - like on day 8-10, once per day, then day 12 is the last one.

Does everyone stop on day 8?

I'd go!

I have only dumped beer to make room for what is new.  But I do it fairly regularly...  2 weeks ago was the most recent.

Wow that's crazy!  Please post a picture of the capper so any who have one like it can be prepared.

I don't know, but they will ship them if you're not needing it today.

Great product by the way.

A quick question:  Is there a good way to get the Fermaid into solution?  It seems to just clump up and float.
