My wife brewed her first solo beer on our beer rig (I left detailed instructions, but had to run errands, which was fine with her). She forgot to cut the heat to the MLT when she was doughing in, and by the time she realized it and cut the heat, the mast was up to 175-180ish. I told her to add some ice, and we ended up mashing for 2 hrs after getting it back down to where it was supposed to be. This took a while though.
On 2/29, we pitched the brett (which variant I forget as well) because the sach strain (I also forget which at this point) could not get it lower than 1.050.
The carboy sat around 68* in our little closet, and we tried it again yesterday (6/3). Down to 1.022.
This is our first time playing with Brett. Admittedly I have not done a large amount of research, but will Brett go further? Where does it stop? For the time being we just put another airlock on it and put it back in the closet. Will this drop out if cold crashed?
