If I'm using the pellets that came with the kit would it be bad to squeeze out the bag to get a
few last drops of goodness out? If it introduces oxygen is there anyway to counteract that,
possibly by ...

Old thread, but hoping to maybe get some info from you perc. After you cold crashed and racked
did you lose a lot of beer to the trub and hop mess at the bottom? I'm trying to avoid that, I

My biggest concern was losing too much beer if I put them in loose as I'm using pellets. Will
the screen over my auto siphon work with the muck that the pellets turn into also?Thanks.

desire to tr...

Well, fermentation went gangbusters in the first 24 hours. I had the temp down into the 75-77
range the first night, I was hoping it would have been a little lower, but not quite cool

Thanks for all the feedback, now I'm just trying to get the temp down to the low 70's - upper
60's. A little tough this time of year when you don't have a basement or a lot of space. Wet

So I was brewing my 4th batch today, went with NB's Pro Series Surly Furious Extract Kit. It
was a rough day, I turned away for about 10 seconds after adding the DME at 45 minutes and got
a small boil...
Posted in thread: Dead Ringer IPA from NB, any experience? on 09-26-2011 at 09:58 PM
The Dead Ringer is a clone of Bell's Two Hearted Ale. Not sure if you get that out in CA, but
