    Huh. I've read multiple times on here that the rapid introduction of acid when force carbing
    takes a while to blend with the blend with the the flavor of the beer. I've read for this
    reason, whether y...

    You guys are correct, my way is more complicated, but... my method will end up with better
    beer, right? I mean, your recommended method will definitely leave me with a carbonic acid off
    flavor on day ...

    You're not getting it. 64 would be the coldest for my yeast. Yeast has a temp range that I pay
    attention to. 64 was not going to do much more or less than 66 would. I've fermented on the
    coldest end a...

  • Posted in thread: using a trash bag on my primary on 06-09-2014 at 12:20 PM
    That is incorrect. I've fermented at the correct temperature and had a great deal of blowoff. I
    had 1 gallon in a 2 gallon bucket and still had blow off. My yeast temp range was 64-72 and I
    was fermen...
