Your starter will be fine. If you are brewing tomorrow then just leave it on the counter. If you aren't brewing in the next few days you can put it in the fridge. I suppose if you want to stall the fermentation of the starter you could put it in the fridge now, but I would be inclined to let it fer...

[quote]In these contests 90% of people are going to do something fairly predictable... Change yeast, spice it, dry hop it, fruit it[/quote] So then the question becomes do you try and go big or go home OR just do the basic flavor change better than everyone else ? Do you think there is a hope...

Curious if the specialty stuff from any of the breweries will be available in BTR. I know the Chafunkta/Gnarly Barley collab will be but I doubt the NOLA sours or the new Parish one offs will be. :banghead: Not really in the business of heading down to NOLA on a week night for a beer. Having a ...

A buddy told me this morning that he found some wild persimmon trees yesterday in a park, so our minds immediately turned to beer. Now just trying to figure out what to brew. Figure we have another like 2 weeks before they fully ripen. Since I am on a huge sour kick, obviously thinking sours. An...

I try to follow the "rule" of over carbonate but push with low carbonation when bottling. I have never really felt the need to keep the bottles really cold but I have a beer gun so IDK if that matters. Length of tubing makes a huge difference as well. I tried to use a different piece of tubing th...

[quote]BMoney S14suspense[/quote] Works for me. I have to work late on Thursday night, but that wouldn't really get in the way. If you want to coordinate the visit we could try a couple of beers. I put a JK Provenance in the fridge on Saturday but we didnt get around to drinking it, so I would...

I took a sample of the American Amber I brewed last weekend yesterday to check for gravity. Gravity was great, fermented out. I noticed though that the color was just a bit off. I realized that I had not asked the LHBS to add the chocolate malt to the grain bill since I had a bunch of it. Every...

We added our first additions of dry hops to our project dank beers. One carboy got 2.5 Oz of Amarillo and 1.5 of Citra the other got 2 of Centennial and 2 of Simcoe. After 5 days each beer gets a second dose of the same schedule for another 4 days or so. The beers may not have been completely finish...

I will measure the empty bucket I have at the house to see if it is 5 gallons. I believe I have an extra spigot which I could just add to the bucket in lieu of buying a bottling bucket. ...

That does not appear to be homemade alcohol though. Just appears to be homemade infusions. If I pay you for the ingredients to make some infusions, you go to the store and buy it all, then give it to me once it is infused, are you really selling me the alcohol? ...

I have 2 versions of a pale ale, an English mild that needs to go, and an amber that I'm not happy with. In the fermentation chest I have a better version of an American amber and the crazy hoppy ipa. Next up will be a holiday saison to go into my barrel ...
