There's no easy way out. There's no shortcut home.

Also the amount of sugar that can be boiled in water is pretty substantial, I usually use a very tiny amount of water.



56g-113g into 1/2 cup of water or less I've used in the past works fine.

Come to think of it, I had to move a carboy still hooked up to my recirculation device much similar to this:



and I added a very tiny amount of SMB in preparation for bottling about a week ago. This device allows me to fill my carboy to the top and in fact I had to take samples just to get enough room for the bung to go in. Never had to worry about losing any blow off this way (so far).

I've dumped two batches of APA that were mostly bittered with whirlpool additions. Something about the SMB is not interacting well with the extra hoppy beers that I've made. I may try a greatly reduced dose on my next batch, but right now SMB and massive hopping rates are not for me, although it could be a yeast issue.

Wyeast 1332, which I'm told is an English strain.

I've not had this issue with the Belgian strains or German ale (alt and hefe) yeast.
