    After 2 days, they (5 gallons in bucket, and 5 in conical),both volcanoed out the tops. Cleaned
    up the mess and loosened the lid on the bucket and conical for a couple days, til things calmed
    down. It...

    I have a 1.050 kolsch going in my fast ferment conical. The thermowell temperature says it is
    53* (ambient about 50*). It is bubbling vigorously every 4 seconds, . I pitched onto the yeast
    cake from a...

    How many wrappings of teflon tape are you all using to stop thermowell leakage? So far I've not
    been successful in getting a good seal with the standard 3 wrappings.I stretched a keg post "0"
    ring ove...

    Great idea! Will have to give it a try. Do you clean the thermowell after every brew? The fact
    that it leaks just a little bit tells me it's probably a good place for contamination to
    happen.By clean,...

    Thanks! Ya i realized afterwards that tape on the union fitting threads was wrong, It's off
    now. Only problem I have is the thermowell leaks ever so little. Not enough to actually drip
    but still has a...

    Hi,Just like to say that the customer support at Fastbrewing is A1. There was no Canadian
    option to purchase the pre-order of the TCJ, so I emailed Casey on Sept.22, he got back to me
    on the 24th, and...

    I would just keg it. I doubt you are going to get much of a difference in the amount of
    suspended yeast in 24hr if you already waited weeks. My experience was like yours, lots of nice
    clean yeast coll...

    Hi all,Finished my first batch through the fastferment conical. A pilsner with wyeast 2278, 6
    liter starter split between two 5.5 gallon batches into a 1.053 wort. Dumped wort in, then
    waited 6 hours,...
