Longer than necessary fermentations. Yeast health, proper stir plate starters, pitching the
right amount, I am typically grain to glass in 8-10 days unless I'm aging something or
secondary fermenting ...

If you can tell us the amounts of each ingredient used and summarize your brewing procedure, we
should be able to help answer your question.

I've been using the Son of Fermentation Chiller for years now. It's a great CONTROLLABLE means
of managing fermentation temperature, and doesn't cost much.

Please sir, may I have another?
Posted in thread: Quick question re: pre boil vs post boil gravity on 01-13-2014 at 04:09 PM
the 42.7 was the pre-boil SG - correct?That's right. When you do those calculations, use 54
instead of 1.054, and so 1.044 becomes 44. The 42.7 is very close to 44, so it looks like
you're right about...

Divide the final wort volume by the starting volume: 4.75/6 = 0.79. Now multiply the ending
gravity by this number: 0.79 X 54 = 42.7.Looks like pretty normal figures for a 60 min. boil.

Hi drinkinfool,The beer you left in the bottles may actually be OK. If your gravity was 1.040
to start, and you had an active fermentation, I seriously doubt that it only dropped 10 points.
Are you su...

I see what you are saying but nothing outside of the pan ever makes it into the flask, just
wort.you could also let it cool on the stove a bit and then pour directly into the flask and
cool the flask ...
