Hey guys, New to the hobby, took a year to educate and equipped myself. I did everything backwards, I started doing all grains, I wanted to learn the process and understanding each step. Made some mistakes along the way but the worst so far is a bitter that turned flat but still tasty. I now have 9 batches under my belt. since winter is here, brewing all grains outside can be a pain so I decided to try those cans of LME and bought 2 kits. My first one was a light lager. I couldn’t believe how easy it was, boil a gallon of water, dumped 2.2 pounds of sugar add water to desired 5 gallons pitch yeast ferment and bottle. Easy right? In my kit, it said after pitching the yeast, ferment with a hard bung or full cover NO airlock for 5 days then rack into secondary with an airlock for 15 days. Fermentation ends when no bubbles or same reading over 2-3 days. Simple. However, when I racked into secondary and applied the airlock there was NO movement whatsoever in the airlock. I must say my lid looked like it was about to explode In those 5 days with a full lid but it held on to my amazement, I was even considering burping it! I’m bottling this batch next week, I’m really curious how it turns out. Is it normal to have no activities in the airlock? Should I be worried? My 2nd kit is a Muntons Connoisseur Wheat Beer and I am baffled by the instructions. Same kind of process, really easy. This kit says Fermentation with airlock (ok that’s normal) and fermentation will be done in 4-6 days. Then you rack into bottling bucket with sugar to bottle the batch. Then let bottle condition 14 days and enjoy. I’ve always used 3-4 weeks as rule of thumb for carbonating ales. So in all grains I would ferment for a month then bottle and condition for a month (3-4 weeks) and enjoy it. I’ve always had good success and never had too much carbonation. My pattern is easy, 2 months from grains to drinking. With this kit I’m looking at 20 days for the entire process which seems extremely short. I’m afraid to have under carbonation, should I be worried? In my all grains, should I take it off the fermentor faster than a month? compared to the lager kit, it was 5 days in primary, 10-15 days in secondary and 3 weeks to carb. For a total of a month and a half...roughly This kits is 4-6 days for fermentation and 14 days to carb for a total of 20 days?!? thanks for the comments! A.
