Posted in thread: how long can I have wort without Yeast? on 10-28-2015 at 09:33 PM
I do the no chill method every brew now since it makes my brew day shorter. Typically go about
20 hours before pitching yeast. I like the method because I can guarantee the perfect pitching

Ive moved to spring water from tap / distilled and really enjoy the results.

I think it will be just fine. I did an experiment to try and get the high and low off flavors
with that yeast and used ambient temps of 62 and 68. Both brews came out tasting the exact

About to start a brew and instead of cooling to ~70f immediately after boil I am going to place
the wort in my temp. controlled fridge at 65f. I am uncertain if it would be better to transfer

I am kegging. My conical has a side spout to run fluid hose to bottom of keg and fill. I would
imagine some floaties could come off the trub just based on the fluid movement but surely the
