Posted in thread: Lost about 6 litres of water tonight!! on 05-27-2015 at 03:50 AM
I boil off any where from 4 to 6 liters, not counting loss to the mash. I generally use 9 to 10
gallons of water pre mash to end up with 5.5 gal in the fermenter.

Ok, glad to know we're experiencing the same things. With conan, my airlock will bubble for up
to 2 weeks which I have never had happen with any yeast. This last IPA i did was at 1.018 after

end of ferm...

commercial stuff. I get a ton of sweet and fruity esters, but none I would call
bubblegum.thought maybe I had...

Just curious if people are noticing a difference in harvested yeast vs the commercial stuff? I

loving the ye...

my advice is to get one of those rope handled Rubbermaid tubs and fill it halfway with water.

with an old c...

is like lea...
