  • Posted in thread: I think I did something stupid with my yeast... on 10-08-2015 at 02:19 PM
    Oxygen is a good thing during fermentation, the yeast need it, not so much good after
    fermentation is done.Some of the things I make that are harder to ferment will have you
    vigorously stir every day ...

    For a 5 gallon batch of porter-Put 4 ounces of course ground dark roast beans in 20 ounces of
    cold water in a french press or something else that allows you filter out the grounds. Let that
    sit on the...

    Chlorine will gas off in th boil or over a few hours at room temp. However some districts use
    chloramine instead of- or in addition to chlorine. Chloramine will not gas off. Either use a
    carbon filter...

    Most of those computer fans are 12V, but you'll want to run them at a lower voltage to knock
    the speed down. I use a cheapo eBay step down voltage control on my 12V wall charger to do
    that. Instead of...

    Personally, I'd stay away from a side-by-side for a ferm chamber. You'll get more usable space
    out of a fridge with a top freezer or, better yet, an upright freezer. Age is important, but so
    is condit...

  • Posted in thread: Another temperature probe thread on 08-26-2015 at 06:46 PM
    I stuck the probe into a bottle of water on the bottom of the freezer.This is all you need do.
    Nuthin fancy and it works. The water serves as a buffer and mimics the liquid temp inside the
    kegs. I use...

    No, Beersmith is fairly useless at predicting FG. Oh so true, yet not nearly as bad as some
    batch kit instructions. Some of those expected FGs are laughably low.

    As said, you're fine. To kill the yeast with cold, you have to get it below freezing with
    enough water present so that ice crystals form.Think about where home brew suppliers store the
    vials/packs of ...

  • Posted in thread: Cold Crashing - Then Bottling? on 08-26-2015 at 06:24 PM
    Cold crashing is fine. There will be plenty of yeast left in suspension to bottle with. You
    could also use Irish moss or whirlfloc in the boil (10 mins) and/or gelatin after
    primary.Bottle carbing aft...

    I took a spaghetti sauce jar, filled with water, poked a hole in the top of the lid and
    submerged the STC-1000 probe in the water. Works just fine to buffer the temp reading (which is
    what you want).
