Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Re: Sugar Swap Bitter
Eleven days in primary at 68F, racked to secondary to sit at 64F. Two weeks later still hanging at 1.013, I may have been a bit high on mash temp. Moved to beer cellar yesterday to condition at 50F and dry hop. Keg/bottle just after Christmas, serve New Years Eve.

Taste is good with healthy hop bitterness/flavors. May be too high when carbonated. I think I am getting some flavor from the blonde sugar. Normally I wouldn't have used 1.25 lb of sugar in bitter, but wanted to stay with the plan. I finally realized that 1.25 lb of sryup is not equal to 1.25 of the moist sugar, and should have reduced to about 14 oz.

Last week I made my first cider and wanted to boost the gravity a bit. I mixed 3/4 lb of the blond sugar in a quart of hot water and was surprise by how dark brown the mix became.

Re: Sugar Swap Bitter
As of yesterday, mine was in the primary for fourteen days. The head dropped at 10 - 11 days.

Unfortunately, I couldn't rack to the secondary today due to an unforeseen work-related issue which has me in New Jersey all week.

However, I did move it to a cool location in the basement, about 63*F for the remainder of the week.

Hopefully, the yeast doesn't mind three weeks in the primary.

Happy New Year

My first batch resides in the composter.

I had enough syrup left so I went ahead and brewed another batch. Fresh yeast, strong fermentation. Should be ready to bottle early next week.

Hey DBear;

Happy New Year to you too. Don't feel bad, I just dumped two Saisons.

Re: Sugar Swap Bitter
Howdy all,

Sorry to be the last one. My bitter (ESB) should be ready the week of Feb 4th. How do you want to proceed?

-Cheers
