After two weeks of priming, my beer is tasty, but kinda flat. I realized that it was below the 70-75F priming temperature range. I've moved it to the furnace room. Here's hoping.

What kind of brewing setup do you have?

Nothing fancy. A 2.5 gallon stainless steel pot for the boil, a glass 5 gallon carboy for secondary fermentation, and a plastic 5 gallon bucket for primary fermentation.

I don't even have a cooling coil. This time I just left it covered overnight before adding the yeast.

Mostly malt extract or a mash with mostly grain?

I'm curious about the details if you use a lot of grains - everyone seems to have their own system mashing and separating.

I have the right equipment to do brew-in-a-bag brewing and helped some friends brew beer, but so far I've stuck to 1 gallon fruit wines.
