    Razorback opa

    Yes I did take an sg reading on the 28/12/21 which was 1.062, it's now down to 1.004 which I'm very pleased with So do you think I should leave it until day 14, dry hop for 4 days the cold crash to 4 degs for 4 days, rack then bottle and keg. Does that sound OK

    Razorback opa

    I am currently brewing a razorback ipa and about time to add the hops, the instructions say to add on day 5, I think that is a bit early. So I was thinking about dry hopping on day 8 for 4 days then cold crashing to around 3 degs for 3 days then kegging and bottling, does that sound OK

    How long did you leave the hops in, also how did it turn out, does it need a few weeks conditioning

    So if your last batch finished fermenting in two day, did you still leave it till day 12 to add the hops and bottle or keg on day 14

    Festival suffock strong ale

    It's now the 9th of November and the sg is at 1.017, I thought that this was a little bit quick to have dropped that much in a couple of days. Also the instructions say that I have to dry hop on day 5 but I was going to leave it to day 8 and leave then in for 5 or 6 days then take them out, my...

    Festival suffock strong ale

    I started this kit yesterday and it seems to be fermenting rapidly I know the temperature increased this morning as the fermentation started, is this normal for this kit as you can see I have an ispindel I use it only as a guide bit it does look like a rapid fermentation
