    You input the highest temperature the beer saw between fermentation and priming. This gives the
    calculator its baseline for how much yeast-produced CO2 stayed in solution. So in your case,
    70°F.Some h...

    Awesome! So what temp exactly do you imput?Lets say it's at 40F in the fridge for 1 day after
    fermenting for 20 days at 70FI just created a few temp's in BeerSmith and follow whatever it

  • Posted in thread: After five days in the bucket, what should I expect regarding the airlock bubbling? on 08-27-2015 at 09:20 PM
    Question time...What are you brewing? What kind of yeast? What's the temperature at? What temp
    did you pitch at? Has there been airlock activity up to this point and now it's died out? Or
    has there be...

    one gusher...

    I always go w/the first reading. The way I understand it is that that one drop you put on it
    cools so fast that you don't need to let it cool more.

    I use a refractometer to take intermediate reading of my beers and only take a single
    hydrometer sample at the very end to save on sample losses. I also get my initial hydo sample
    from wort gleaned fr...

    I've done a coffee stout many times. I cold brew and use 8 oz in to the bottling bucket. This
    is for a 2 gallon batch. My advise is to add cold brewed at bottling time TO TASTE. That means
    don't just ...

    I don't have the ability to do a lager very often so I'm lagering vicariously through you :) I

    that I un...
