I just realized that in the last recipe (AG) I did at home, I made some changes, and I think it made it better. Here it is:Attachment 4778

I think that's the most recent. Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't know. What are your settings like? Here's a file from one of my Dead Guy brewdays (I had to make some subs, so the recipe might be sublty different). I start with about 6 gallons, because I don't boil off that much.

OK just got back from Disney Land and I needed a beer. So I went to the Fridge and poured a nice frosty glass of this.

I just brewed the AG version of this yesterday.. I made a 1.5 L starter, and about 10 hours later this is what I had.

The krausen looks different than all of the other beers I've brewed. Also, I had a ton of hot and cold break, so as I was pouring from the kettle to the carboy, the wort almost looked like it had a coral reef inside of it with all the oddly shaped precipitates. I've seen break before, but this was a lot different. (maybe due to first time using whirl flock?)

Here's another picture. The precipitate is swirling around like a tornado inside. Ambient temperature is 55F. The thermometer on the side of the carboy reads 64. Whoa!!

At one week primary at 64 degrees. My first brew in glass carboy. All others in plastic bucket.

I used a White Labs Liquid yeast, it was 1056 American Ale. My OG was 1.062, pretty close to the target of 1.066. I will update the FG when I bottle.

As a side note, I placed my beer filled carboy into a Beer keg bucket, like the one you find in any big department store like #$%mart. Filled till half way up the carboy with water and kept the desired temp at 60* by using alternating bottles of water I froze. When I woke up and in the evening I would switch them out. I found that two one liter plastic bottles were enough to use. I had four frozen and would place two at a time in at those times. I did the recipe by yooper to the T and it worked just fine...I will bottle next Wednesday and update.
