I had this happen 5 batches ago. I boiled the bag in water, rinsed it, boiled again. It is

It's possible you missed the krausen entirely. This one takes off like a rocket. The 3787/530
is a much slower fermenter.Ah, I hadn't considered that. It was only 2.5 gallon batch... I
forgot to menti...

Anybody use abbaye and notice a distinct lack of krausen? I have a split batch going right now

will see the...

Solid cake, good for dark beers too... Loved it for my recent porter.

Hey Hanso, really want to try this within the next couple of days. Had a sour cider the other
day for the first time and the sour/tartness basically fried my tongue, and I loved it! Quick

Newbie question as I have not brewed a beer this big before. I have a 13 gal rectangular cooler
MLT and I have scaled up the grain bill for 62% efficiency as I am expecting a big drop off
with this mu...

That stuff will rise and fall with temperature change as well as CO2 formation as it collects
on the fermenting fruit, which physically holds its sugars in harder to get places for the
