comment Ginger Beer recipe, how do you finish up?
OMG, let it sit for a couple of months, amazing flavors, added a little simple syrup to each glass, as it is dry, dry, dry and a bit tart. A little sugar rounds it out nicely. Hmmm, wonder if a shot of rum would make a good Dark n' Stormy?

comment What are the other good santizers when StarSan is not available?
As a wine maker I always use Potassium Metabisulfate. When I started making beer I just used the same. Never a problem.

Cold crashed for a little over a week, yeast dropped nicely. Primed the batch with corn sugar, bottled in nice strong Duval bottles. Now the hard part...waiting

I've made a lot of beer but never cold crashed a batch, right now I've got them in the refridgerator. How long should they go or just play it by ear as they appear to clear?

comment Looking for a WARM ginger beer
Mine finished very dry so priming should be okay. I did use a strainer bag for the ginger and citrus rine which made clean-up a snap. I have always use some yeast nutrient in any wine or beer that I have made in the past and accordingly I think it helped the fermentation as it only took about 3 weeks to go completely dry. It's going to have some geddy-up as we say and I'll have to adjust the alcohol in the future batches if this proves a little on the strong side.

comment Looking for a WARM ginger beer
I just made a 2 gallon batch according to your recipe. I smells great, fermented dry, I have transferred them to jugs with airlocks. What would be the next steps prior to priming and bottling? I am planning on a fizzy, dry, alcohol drink. Thanks. Q

comment What hops are a little less bitter than Warrior?
I am making good beer, but still learning. Less bitterness is the goal, I didn't know there was more then one way to get there. Thanks.

comment My beer is clear, what did I do right?
I think you have something there. This is the first beer that I have made during the summer season. Fermentation was quite quick finishing in about 4 days. Also I used US-05 instead of a Belgian liquid yeast as it was unavailable. I guess a few things that I forgot to add into the mix of this success. Thanks.
