  • Posted in thread: Adding fresh wort to an active ferment. on 11-24-2013 at 11:41 PM
    I would do it. If you're worried about aerating the fermenting wort, I can't believe aeration
    would hurt the final product. The yeast will have plenty of time and energy to scrub the oxygen
    out of the...

    The Brett C batch has a pellicle on it? That seems odd. Brett C is a yeast strain with no
    bacteria in it. I was under the impression that yeast did not form a pellicle. I would sample
    all three and ta...

    1/2" NPT threaded thermowell w/ a 1/2" NPT nut and o-ring. I siliconed the temp sensor directly
    into the thermowell after wrapping the electrical connections in shrink tubing.

    Well, I came in short on my pre-boil gravity so I sparged a bit to much to compensate and am
    now in the middle of a 2 hr boil to get my volume/OG correct. It's a blessing and a curse to
    have a refract...

    Brewing this as we speak. Slow day at the office so I left 30 minutes early to come home and
    fit in a weeknight brew.

    Pretty slick, but datasheet specs only rate it to 150F, so would probably fail in brewing
    conditions.I highly doubt the stream over 12" above the liquid is 150F in an atmospheric

    I have used ultrasonic for many years for measuring levels of various materials. Most are not
    affected by dust or turbulance. I would think that foam would not be an issue but if your using
    it to meas...

    I can, and will when I complete the project. I haven't yet because it's not where I want it

    Ok so then I suppose my question is now, can I re-pitch my washed yeast I took from the
    primary?Yes. I would also re-aerate the unfinished wort a little bit to help the yeast along.
