    I am about to brew this beer myself, but I do have a few questions beforehand. Does the 5 galons mean. I have 5 galons of beer in the end or does it mean I use 5 galons to mash the grains in?

    Also what is the aimed for SG before fermenting?

    Thanks for your help!

    Brewed this one about 3 months ago – very good. Should be re-named the memory eraser. My beer ABV was around 9.2% and is almost gone.

    I am brewing this today, debating whether to use an amber balanced water profile,
    or an amber bitter water profile…

    I’m brewing this right now. It’s been in primary fermentation for 10 days. There is still a lot of foam or krausen on top and airlock is still bubbling. Seems like it should be done by now. Is this normal? How long should thus take for this particular beer? It’s fermenting at about 63 degrees.
