    Warm? US-05I have my chest freezer set for 66-69 degrees. Based on what I've read, that's where
    it should be. If I'm mistaken, I could very easily lower the temperature. Thoughts?65-66*F
    (measured on ...

    I think it will be fine. Consider it a heavy bock or a slightly light doppel.

  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl rest timing, is it ever (within reason) too late? on 02-10-2016 at 04:15 AM
    It's best to do it when the beer is at 75% between OG and expected FG (while there still some
    yeast activity going on), but better late than never.

  • Posted in thread: Bottling cold crashed beer - How much sugar? on 02-10-2016 at 04:12 AM
    Yes, totally possible. At 70 it would take less time to carb, but will it affect the taste? I

    effect on ...

    By the way, I'm brewing a 1.068, 5 gallon IPA extract kit. I have the temp set at 66-69 degrees
    in my chest freezer.With what yeast? For some strains, that's a bit on the warm side.

  • Posted in thread: Did I cold crash too quickly? on 02-10-2016 at 03:57 AM
    I am not sure what you think the problem is? What is it that you think cold crashing too
    quickly will do?EDIT - Oh I am an idiot. you mean did you stop fermenting the starter too
    quickly. LOL!I think ...

    First off, your OG using extract. If you used top off water and didn't mix it well (which never
    happens by the way), your OG is going to measure either high, low or near normal. Water and
    wort don't m...

    Keep it simple.38*F, 10-12 psi, 10-12ft 3/16" beer lines. Pour the stout and let it off-gas
    while it sits in the glass 15 min and warms up to proper English ale drinking temp (50-52*F).
