Posted in thread: Cold crashing - Step by step vs. All at once on 11-23-2014 at 01:33 AM
So for those of you who go to the target temp all at once, do you remove the airlock and use
foil to avoid suck-back?I turn it down all at once. Sometimes I use foil or I take a piece of
rolled up pap...

I did 20 lbs last weekend for a 11 gallon batch and it was pretty simple. I calculated my batch
as usual then took out 3 gallons and figured the strike temp based on that amount. I added the
