Wow!  You guys actually keep records? I figure if I don't know how much I have brewed.......nobody else will either ;)

I only keep records of my recipes, but unfortunately they all have volumes associated with them so I'm self-incriminating I suppose.

Just curious.  I've done 116 gallons so far, but hopefully I'll double that by the end of the year.

Lol. I'm of no help, just wanted to say I had two fridges just go a minute ago. Now I'm down to 3. :'(

Thanks for the tasting notes. I've never had any of these hops so that'll help in the future.

I don't use a filter with pure O2. I think that's just to filter out particulates in the air like you said.

Glad I don't watch TV.

+1 and I like Sam but that's a bit much.

Buy a carb stone for $12 on morebeer and a 12" piece of tubing and stick it on the gas in post inside. Set to serving pressure and leave 2 days. It'll be ready then.

BTW I didn't read all of the other posts but I think this is a good solution, as it's what I do and it works GREAT!!! 

Also, to your original post, it's not done carbonating yet.  I too get impatient like that and had the same issue in the past. Cheers!

Isn't it sort of like growing your own tomatoes for a tomato soup? Your not selling the beer as "beer". So it makes since to me that you wouldn't need a license. However, my opinion means absolutely nothing when it comes to matters of the law.

It depends on how long they've been like that and, like others said, if they are sealed good. You can look at them and tell if they're bad.

Great feedback...thanks. Quick question: I'm fermenting in a plastic carboy- what's the best way to take a gravity reading without making a mess/disrupting the process? Thanks!

I use a turkey baster.  Make sure it's sanitized before you plop it down in your beer.  Try not to stir the beer up either, so as not to oxidize.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: vigorous fermentation

I can't say if you should pitch more yeast because I don't know what the gravity is right now. I would guess the answer is no but you will have to measure the beer and see.

 gravity right now from 1.078 on 8/3,  is 1.020 today 8/5

Should still be going.

ok I'll  check  it when I get home  just needed to be sure that  it'd be ok sitting in primary for a  month or so, I  have heard that it's  not great to leave it in primary for more than a week or so.  my next one is a pumpkin ale

Old wives tale. Leave it in primary. There is weight to the statement about leaving it with yeast if you're dry hopping it. Vinnie with Russian River said he tries to remove it from as much yeast as possible before dry hopping IIRC. But at a homebrew scale YMMV.

Best decision you will ever make. My advice would be to start as big as you can. Get to know your equipment and brew as often as you can. Make sure you have a couple of refrigerators. Other than that, it's mostly just trial and error (hopefully minimal error).
