    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
    10 days a...

    Did you ferment in the low 60's for the duration of fermentation? I used to do that with most
    of my ales and then I learned about how its generally good to let it get up to 70 right at the
    end of ferm...

    I'd like to remind people that in certain areas you may need to have your water checked several
    times a year, since the source of household water can change seasonally.I had my water checked
    a few yea...

    I haven't but I've fermented cool. Low 60s. This was yeast I harvested from a can. Not the
    commercial stuff. I get a ton of sweet and fruity esters, but none I would call
    bubblegum.thought maybe I had...

  • Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 05-25-2015 at 02:21 AM
    Just curious if people are noticing a difference in harvested yeast vs the commercial stuff? I
    have my first heady clone fermenting now but I did brew a few pales and ipas already and am
    loving the ye...

    Check your thermometer in an ice bath to make sure it reads 32. It could be the cause of the
    problem. I would expect your beer to finish at 1.010 to 1.012.

  • Posted in thread: Temperature - how low is to low? on 05-22-2015 at 01:50 AM
    my advice is to get one of those rope handled Rubbermaid tubs and fill it halfway with water.
    get it off the ground by putting a few boards underneath, put your fermenter in and cover it
    with an old c...

  • Posted in thread: Same wort 2 very different beers on 05-22-2015 at 01:41 AM
    That seems like an abnormally long time to oxygenate wort. A few minutes should be enough to
    get your maximum dissolved oxygen content. Remember, using unfiltered air with an aquarium pump
    is like lea...
