Posted in thread: False Bottom BK Bottom Drain Keggle? on 09-20-2012 at 04:52 PM
I'm currently building an E-HERMS setup. I'm using 3 keggles but instead of using a diptube I'm
using a bottom drain for two main reasons:1) Ease of cleaning in place2) Improve efficiency due
to less ...

Bah I just read up and found out there is a lot more to calculating fg with a refractometer and
using the excel file from morebeer it agrees with my hydrometer

Ok I got out my hydrometer and it's saying my tripel is at 1.004...I don't understand how my

Would it be alright if I went ahead and bottled this at 1.034? It seems to be done fermenting

I'm stumped...made up a starter last weekend and pitched it and the airlock always had bubbles
in it all week long...although i never actually saw it bubble. Went to take a reading with my

Well I roused the yeast and brought the carboy upstairs but the gravity hasn't really changed.
I'm going to make another starter and pitch the yeast to see where it takes me.

I browsed through about 15 pages and didn't see my question so hopefully I'm not being
redundant. For my setup I'm using 3 kegs. Single Tiered E-HERMS system. For the mash tun and bk
