    So how did the brew day end up? Now the hard part - waiting!It went pretty good, no issues
    besides it taking awhile to get the wort cooled down. The wind was blowing pretty good here and
    I was out in ...

    I'm currently in the process of brewing an Octoberfest. I've been out of brewing for a few
    years. My floating thermometer broke in my last brew with a pumpkin beer two years ago and it
    kinda ripped my...

    It won't get better, if anything any slight hint will disappear with time. The good thing is

    from the br...

    Just so we're clear, this is a food grade thermometer that came with the brew kit I orginally
    received as a present. Those thermometers don't contain mercury and from what I understand
    thermometers ha...

    I forgot to add we racked it off the trub and left that in there and that's where we found the
    glass.

    So what we're doing is we found all of the steel bb's so there is no issue there. We found
    three large pieces of glass, but of course we are missing a few. We took a clean t-shirt, cut
    it up to act as...

    **** I know that's the right answer too and I spent a lot of time on this beer. Just when you
