Okay, I just pitched, the starter was really active, the fermentor was down to 66F. 18 hours after "current off" the yeasties are in and I am being smart and setting up a blow off.

Do you have a cool room or a fridge with a temp controller or what to get 66F?

I have a fridge that is controlled by a Love Controller, and a thermowell into the carboy, so it actually controls the temp of the wort, not just the ambient air.

Larry is Mr Fancy Pants... I have a freezer that has a temp. controller on it so that I can adjust it. Probably set it to 64F to achieve 66F in the fermentor.

Cool, Exactly the answers I was looking for..

I'm going to tape the probe to my fermenter on the next batch.

26 hours after the end of the boil, we have fermentation! It is sitting pretty at 66F....

Thanx for sharing the webcast POL. I caught most of it. I am just getting back into things and hadn't been aware of the HERMS system at all until I watched you use it.
Definitely a sweet setup for consistency.
Something else to put on my future wish lists.

Awesome, I was glad to see so many viewers! It was a lot of fun, I will be doing another broadcast in June! So be sure to catch that. That one should be my Hugh Heffe... but I am not certain!

Larry... hows the brew coming? Did it blow off? I got called out at 3AM, so my ferment will take place in my absence this week!

Blowing like crazy! I was in my garage and thought the compressor was running on the fermenter. It kept going and going and I thought - WTF?

It was the blowoff tube in a 1/2 gal of starsan. Burrp..burp..burp... about every second!

I love this yeast.
