Big Island this time around. Sunny Kona coast and its dozens of world-class dive sites, not to mention night dives with Manta rays

Sunday can't get here soon enough!

w00t good to see you again janx

i figured it was so nice in sunny ca that you were outside and today was prolly the first day it rained

desert, i wonder why the hbs told you not to use a six gallon to primary in? i've used a six gallon to ferment several five gallon batches. i had to employ blow off tubes just about every time, but they keep the beer in and the nasties outside out so i see no real problem.

So how do yous guys who put the yeast into 22 oz bottles get it fluid enough to siphon/pour? I tried it once and ended up failing.

It just seems too thick to move easily from a bucket to a botle.

Dunno, I'll give it a try on my next batch and do the blowoff "in case". Nothing else I'd like to see a primary go Just something about smelling old fermented beer from plastic no matter what you do... I know its clean but I'd prefer the glass (until I have to clean my 1st primary fermented carboy perhaps)

a good twenty four hour soak, and the stuff falls right off the sides of a glass primary, but you got to get it wet straight away, or it dries up into a nightmare

I swish it around with any remaining beer and pour through a sanitized funnel.
