Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast
« on: September 15, 2014, 11:30:01 PM »
The recipe was just one i found online. I have several other recipes that say the same thing. ABV is suppose to be 9.7% so maybe next time i should only use 2? I am fermenting about 65. What do you mean by a blow off? If i want to use liquid yeast home much would you say to add?

Yeast and Fermentation / Yeast
« on: September 15, 2014, 04:35:22 AM »
I recently made this scotch ale. When fermenting the lid blew off several times each time it got worse making a big mess. Im not sure if the beer will turn out but I am wondering if this is to much yeast or why it blew off or is there a way to fix it? I used a 6 gal fermenter and had an air lock on the fermenting bucket too. I used 4 dry yeast packets.

o i am getting into making lots of all grain beer. I am wanting to get a mash tune and am looking at different options. I am looking at using a cooler but also looking at getting a 15 gal stainless steel brew kettle with a false bottom and a spout on it. Im not sure if i could use that same kettle for boiling? I guess im not sure what the best option would be? If I use a cooler then I will be getting a bigger pot to boil so i dont have to go add more water after im done boiling the wart to make a 5 gal batch. It would be great to get some advice from you on what to get. I have a 5 gal pot to boil in right now and a fermented bucket. but if i ever want to do a bigger batch or anything it would be nice to have the option. Also i am wanting to make some higher alcohol beer around 8% how do you get a beer with that high of content? Any other suggestions on equipment or beer making would be great! there is some much to learn!
