comment I used too much malt. What should I do? Suggestions how to salvage?
Bubbles do not necessarily indicate fermetation. They simply indicate CO2 coming out of solution and there can be several reasons for that.

comment Where do I start reading?
I find homebrewtalk to be a cesspool of misinformation. I think the AHA discussion forum homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php has far better info and a friendlier atmosphere. Check 'em both and decide for yourself

I say skip the Element series...not only is it not geared for a beginner, it's hardly even geared to homebrewers.

Have you tasted it yet? I haven't found priming with brown sugar to add any flavor at all.

comment Where to find clear glass beer bottles?
Corona uses a specially processed hop extract that does not do that. But knowing you're making kombucha makes a difference....no hops, no problem!

comment Where to find clear glass beer bottles?
Probably because using clear bottles is such a bad idea. Unless you store the in the dark, the beer will become lightstruck, also called "skunked".

I'll disagree...the best way to achieve even carbonation is to boil your priming sugar with some water. Put that in your bottling bucket and rack the beer onto it to get even mixing.

Yes, I use a homemade immersion chiller. I also use a March 809 pump to do recirculated chilling.

It's still not impossible for the plastic ones to explode if the pressure gets high enough. Store them somewhere safe.

comment Homebrewing Soda, Safety Concerns
Since they're PET bottles, that's a very minor concern. At least I hope that's what he means by 2L soda bottles. If he used glass, he should get rid of them as soon as possible.
