Homebrewing Thread: racking day


I am racking my breakfast stout today and still a little concerned about my high initial gravity

I don't think I topped off with enough water after the boil

Would it be ok to add water now?

I guess my biggest concern is with adding the package of priming sugar to less than 5 gallons resulting in over carbonation

Think ill just cut back on the priming sugars

What effect does gravity have on brew quality for stouts?

Just bottled a bud clone and a strawberry beer. I got the brewing kit for Father's Day this year. I believe this is a Top 5 gift I have ever received.

You don't appreciate a fine bavarian-style lager, zappas feet?

I guess I could soak my feet in that fine beer. Might help my stink foot after wearing python boots all day.

The only homebrewing thing I did all weekend was find my other temperature controller. It was the only thing I hadn't been able to locate since moving back in April. Found it in a box of wine bottles. I was super excited. Did a little dance.
