Browse 8 questions Browse 8 questions and 29 answersWhat should the finish specific gravity be for the Front Porch Pale Ale recipe??BEST ANSWER: Mine finished @ 1.015, was my second brew, was very please with it compared to my first. even after a couple of months in the bottles it needed a couple of weeks in the fridge to really taste best.Does it need to condition for two weeks after primary fermentation. Mine is down to 1.011 in less that a week and looking like it may be done. Should I keg and force carbonate it or condition for 2 weeks?BEST ANSWER: Transfer to a 2nd fermentation for two weeks (helps with clarity and conditioning), then keg/bottle (keg: charge with co2/bottle: corn sugar charge). Then be patient, very patient, for two or more weeks.
Love the Front Porch Ale, and, wife approves whole heartedly.Is this a 5 gallon batch?BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a five (5) gal kit. and a very good one for it's intended place in life of sitting on the porch, enjoying a bit of quiet time or time with some friends. I preferred mine at 50-60 degrees F rather than the American 40.
Is all gone now, have to start another batch soon.Put in my fastfermenter over 48 hours ago, sg was within range and everything well sealed. Still have no activity from blowoff. At loss what’s wrong?BEST ANSWER: First thought that comes to mind is the temp of the wort & the condition of yeast. Usually 60 - 70 for yeast. Also if Yeast was in fridge you need to allow warm up or create a yeast starter to get them fired up. Always good to keep a spare pack of yeast available just incase. Hope you figure out. - GlennThis really done in 2 weeks? No secondary needed? Anyone add fruit to fermentation?BEST ANSWER: Fermentation is done in 2 weeks, yes. It carbonates in the bottle for another 2. An excellent, easy, quick beer.
Why would you ruin it with fruit?What yeast to use?BEST ANSWER: I used the Safeale US-05 for mine and I had very good results.Put in fastfermenter over 48 hours ago. Sg within range on instructions. Still no activity from blowoff. I know everything in fastfermenter well sealed. What’s wrong?BEST ANSWER: If you can see activity from the yeast inside the fermenter(down in the bottom). Then your lid is not sealing.What are the IBU's and can you dry hop this kit?BEST ANSWER: international bitter units. Just a level of bitterness. Higher the number, the more bitter. You can dry hop any kit as far as I'm concerned. This kit did very well for me.
