    No worries on the yeast energizer. In fact, your beer will probably be better for it.

    GENIUS! I will be trying this next brew day. I generally keg so this will give me an extra six
    pack or so to bottle each brew session. Very cool idea. I always think about when I'm brewing
    but never '...

    Actually, the O2 part of your assertion is false. While it is true that a stir plate helps to
    force CO2 out of solution, CO2 is heavier than air. The culture is also under positive
    pressure, which gre...

    So, as a follow up, I have a couple questions:1. Does krausen form before an airlock starts to
    show activity in your experience?2. I still don't really see why a stir plate would help
    besides not havi...

    I bought one of those stir starters for $40, online. Sure, I could have built one from magnets

    struggling a...

    Well the optimum fermentation temp for this yeast is 66-71. So, you were 11 below the optimal
    temp. But it attenuated down all the way, so no stalling etc. Fermenting too cool is better
    than too warm....

  • Posted in thread: Water Bath Fermentation Temp... Issue? on 12-08-2014 at 02:56 PM
    What are you using to contain the water bath? I used to use a rope handle bucket and experience
    big swings like that. Then I started using an igloo cube cooler and now I am able to keep my
    temps in a ...

    Just a question on the science of this. Assuming you mash around 150, runoff, then sparge at
    168, then combine the two and they are greater than 160* when combined -- is this adequate to

  • Posted in thread: What happened? on 12-04-2014 at 02:37 PM
    This can also happen when you use a kit and they provide 5oz of priming sugar for 5 gal of
    beer, and after brewhouse losses you have 4.5 or 5 gal of beer getting bottled and mixed with
    5oz of priming ...
