  • Posted in thread: Can I take my FV out of the chamber now? on 04-04-2016 at 12:23 PM
    If you pitch plenty of good, healthy yeast the fermentation and most flavors are mostly done by
    5-7 days. Assuming you aren't going to let it sit at of 80F or 40F you can take it out of the
    chamber. A...

    It's easy to break down the proteins that give your beer head and body. Trust me, I've done
    it.Took the words right out of my mouth. Can't say I'm shocked. :)Interesting... and awesome,
    thanks for the...

    And another one more thing: Don't do a protein rest at 122 F. It will hurt your beer, today in
    the 21st century, where we have well modified malts and just don't need to do a protein rest
    anymore, unl...

    I ferment at 51F until it get to about 75-80% (4-5 days), then d-rest 4-5 days, then keg and

    I check my beer's gravity twice, when I pitch the yeast, and when I transfer to keg.I used to
    do an additional check with lagers to see if they were ready for the d-rest. Eventually it got
    to the poin...

  • Posted in thread: fridge with an ice shelf (fermenting chamber) on 06-26-2015 at 12:29 PM
    I have a fridge I removed the ice shelf and wedged it on the back wall of the fridge. It holds
    one carboy for fermenting, and 2 kegs for kegerator. I use a temp controller to set the
    temperature, not ...

  • Posted in thread: Issues with Lagers & Pilsners on 05-27-2015 at 12:19 PM
    Interesting, I was feeling a bit disappointed by this summers batch of lagers and light ales.
    All seemed to be lacking something in the hop flavor, all are tried and true recipes I've done
    for years. ...

    From what I can tell, ABCD would be hardware dependent but most likelyA = 3B = 0 based on 1st
    postC depends on your sensor typeD = 0E = 1, assuming output on turns heat on (0% safety turns

    That looks like a spec sheet, hopefully you have a manual to explain how to nav the setup menus
    and lists all options. For your needs it should be simple.Set sensor typeY1 heatY2 coolControl

    If you're confident the outputs are wired correct it is most likely something in the controller
    configuration. Possible it could be how outputs are configured heat/cool/alarm, deadbands,
    on/off vs PID...
