Hey to maybe reduce the amount of "what is a secondary fermentation?" questions why don't we change our sigs to say "Clearing Tank" instead of "Secondary"?
Who knows.....might just catch on
Unless it is a fruit beer, then it can be a secondary!
I think you have a longgggggggggg way to go. It's been called secondary for a long time probably by millions of people in many countries. I like the intention but I doubt it'll be worth the effort. You'd need to campaign on many fronts.
Good luck if you want to go with it.
I dunno, I racked my Long Trail Ale last weekend, and it started fermenting again in the 'clearing tank', krausen and all.
Yeah I know it won't change the homebrewing world as we know it but maybe this forum...
Your right though with a fruit beer it could be a true secondary fermentation.....i guess you could call the tetriary a clearing tank
in all reaility it's just me being bored at work
Nice thought though and I do agree with you.
It confused me when I first started to read up.
