Default 2nd AG ingrediants will arrive tomorrow

Well my first allgrain/first brew ever oatmeal stout went great and I finished the last bottle on my birthday yesterday. The ingrediants for my second batch will arrive tomorrow along with a new 6 gallon better bottle so that i can start doing multiple brews. My second attempt will be a Edworts Hefeweizen since that seems to be a popular receipe. Wish me luck everyone, and if anybody has any tips for me for my first hefeweizen feel free to help me out!!!! YEP I HAVE CAUGHT THE HOME BREWING BUG!!!!!!

Get ready for a blowoff! Seriously, the hefe yeast blows up big...I had mine in a 6.5 gallon carboy and it still blew off. If you don't have one already, rig up a blowoff tube. Other than that, congrats on your second AG and good luck with the hefe!

damn i hope im gonna be safe with this brew, lol, Im pretty sure that im going to have this brew day and then go 1000 miles away for work through the whole fermentation process. guess i really need to rig up that blow off tube especially with only a 6 gallon fermenter huh. I do use my kegerator with my temperture control unit to keep constant fermentation tempertures, that will help keep the mess down if things to get ugly....I hope.

If you've got a blowoff tube, no need to worry. I have an improvised one built from a small section of racking cane and siphon tubing. It fits right into a normal stopper, and you just put the other end of the hose in a jar of water big enough to hold some overflow if you get it.

keep it in a pan of water with a towel or shirt around it to suck up water constantly. then put a fan blowing indirectly on it

I have a kegerator with temperture controls installed on in, so fermentation temp won't be a problem

thanks for the info buddy, but 7 12 hour work days is hardly a vaction plus daily hangovers since you can get way better beer in the northeast vs. the southeast, lol, im like a kid in a candy store when i get around those yankee brewpubs, lol
