Posted in thread: Fermentation temperature on 02-23-2016 at 02:17 PM
It's the temperature of the wort that really matters. Also, that 3-5 degree range is pretty

a thermowell ...
Posted in thread: Corn sugar question on 02-04-2016 at 02:56 AM
Yes. In the context of this thread, LME is much less shelf-stable than DME, and the sugars tend
to oxidize moreso than DME. So over time, the fermentability will decrease from its already low

When the "starkiller" fired at a bunch of planets at once and everyone was watching.... I was

I think what you are trying to build is what BobbyM recommended to me in this thread here,

Your brew will most likely benefit from oxygen and I would bet you would taste a difference,

a US$10 contactor in place would give you the ability to completely shut off the electricity to
