All Grain Brewing / Re: Weizen: too low gravity in 9 days

Euge, i will try it!!

It's still there, half is bottled, half is not (probably will toss this half).

Thanks!

Hi Euge.

I bottled it and it is not drinkable. I have lost 40 liters of this weizen. The fruity flavor made it kinda acid, something like that.

The important are the lessons learned! haha

The bag will work for me to brew some ales, test recipes. I will use the freezer to brew lagers and larger batches of ales.

Thanks! Take care

Hey guys!

I got a bag like this one made for me: https://www.cool-brewing.com/

I use frozen bottles of water to get the temperature i want. When i have results i will tell you if it's all fine.

Soon i will invest in a freezer with a Thermostat controlling temperature.

Thanks a lot for your insights.

Take care!

Hi morticaixavier.

I using a biab system and i was checking the mashing temperature all the time, so i THINK it was ok. Also, my gravity was near the expected in my recipe. Is there another way to know i did something wrong?

I checked my thermometer temp using the water boiling temp and it was ok for my altitude. I will recheck! I also checked the hydrometer with my water and it was pretty close to 1. So i don't think that's a problem

Thank you very much for the info!

Take care!

Thank you all for asnwering!

I tasted it today and i think Its a fruity flavor. So Its probably the temperature.

@duboman, you mean my meshing temperature was lower than expected? Could you explain about the relation between it and the low gravity or post a link to some explanation?
Also, should i verify If the hydrometer and thermometer are measuring correctly?

Thanks a lot!

@morticaixavier, i can't describe the taste exactly...didn't bring up anything familiar and i think i'm not good at that! haha

@bboy9000, never worried about temperature control. I think i will buy one of those big thermal bags. I pitched at around 22C and the quantity was the appropriate for 5 gallons (11.5g).

I used my chiller and it went down to something like 29C then i isolated it with the airlock and pitched only next day (22C).

Probably i will buy one of these big bags and use frozen bottles.

Do yout guys think its all lost? Seriously, i don't believe in contamination...but who knows?

Thanks a lot!

Yes, thats a problem i face here. The temp is probably around 20C in the colder corner where i leave it. What you think about the gravity and taste?

Thanks!

Hi guys!

This is my second all grain batch (weizen) and i doubled my recipe so i could have some nice beer by the end of the year.

The problem is that i took a gravity reading today (9 days fermenting) and Its extremely low! (1.004) my OG was 1.045.

My yeast was WB-06. I live in Brasil, so my average temperature is around 25.

The taste is weird...but Its my first weizen.

What are your opinions? Contamination? =(

Its my 5th batch (counting extracts) and im even a bit paranoic about sanitazing stuff.

I read in some post here that we should not give up and have patient, so i'm bottling this, even for the sake of experience.

Thanks for your attention! Take care!

Thanks for the tip!

Ok! I Will follow the instructions!
Thanks denny

Thanks for the answers!

I think I will use half the suggested and check what happens!

I only have cane sugar available. Do you think Its bad for the taste?

Also, how much sugar should I use for priming? Or should I use part of the extract?

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

I'm about to use a brewferm hopped extract (makes 19l) and was wondering how can I brew it without adding sugar (using part of the extract for priming). The instructions say I need to add 1kg of sugar before fermentation.

How can I avoid putting that sugar? Brewing less beer?

Thanks in advance!
