    Amoretti Extracts?

    I picked up a bottle of cappucino extract at a meeting a couple months ago, and I'm thinking of giving a try in a stout. It is one of the small 2 oz. bottles. Has anyone else tried using these yet? How did it work out? How much did you add? Dan

    Corny Keg as Secondary Fermenter

    Is it done fermenting when you put it in the keg? If so would it make sense to not release the pressure to let the beer start carbonating? Just a thought. Or you could remove just the pressure release valve or gas post and use a stopper and airlock?

    Go to Bittering hop

    For British beers I usually use Target or Challenger or a combination of them for bittering, they have higher AA then goldings , fuggles etc. I while ago I did a beer with all Pilgrim hops that came oput really well.

    Batch sparge: to stir or not to stir

    I always give it a good stir and vorlauf again. With my hose braid it only takes about a quart before there are no grain bits. It doesn't long at all.

    No activity in primary ;( >>

    http://www.wyeastlab.com/faqs.cfm?website=2#r42 Wyeast says with shaking you can get max 8ppm's, and you only need to shake for 45 seconds to get there. I usually go longer then that but not 15 minutes.

    refractometer or hydrometer?

    I have a refracometer and like others I use a hydrometer post fermentation. I had one of these http://www.williamsbrewing.com/BREWERS-EDGE-BOTTLING-HYDROMETER-P529.aspx till it broke It reads 1.000 to 1.040 so it was alot easier on the eyes to get a accurate reading.
