    No, you'll get off flavors if you pitch your yeast at too high a temperature. Splurge for
    copper coil wort cooler you'll shorten your brew day time, and lessen the chance for infection.

    Mine came out hazy like yours but a little too bitter (but I added a little freshly ground
    ginger) but I have to say this got BETTER as the keg aged! When I make this again I'll skip the

    Thanks for the reply, the hot break was so good it went over the pot onto the stove because I

    I have a digital thermometer that I use only to get the temp. at the beginning and end of the
