    Give it some time. Saison yeast sometimes ferment in stages. I leave mine in primary for about
    3 weeks, then rack to secondary. I've seen third and fourth waves of fermentation take place up
    to 4 week...

    I think I'll follow jkarp's advice and run off some wort, heat it up and add it back.

    This type of element can be used in a mash?

  • Posted in thread: Heatstick = awesome! on 05-19-2011 at 02:55 AM
    I was using my 1500w element to warm up a mash. Some of the grain must have gotten stuck in it
    because after about a minute of stirring I started smelling and seeing smoke come out of the
    mash. I turn...

    I use two electric heat sticks to boil. Since I switched from propane, I've been having trouble
    hitting gravities and getting weird efficiencies. I tested my system tonight and found out I'm
    boiling o...

    Since the solution is mostly sugar, it will go higher than 212*F and higher than 290*F.And yes,
    with a stove.

    I think rye is a fine idea. It won't hurt. At 1lb the crystal is probably ok. But I wouldn't
    excede 1lb.Black patent will add color, but basically no flavor. I think the RB will add a
    little character...

    If this is for 5gal then I agree with dcp, way too much crystal. You'll be lucky to hit 75%
    attenuation with just base malt at that gravity. If you start throwing in crystal, your
    attenuation will sta...

    I make my own everytime I make a dubbel now. Before I would buy it, but once I tried making it
    following the guidelines on HBT (IDK where the thread is currently) and compared it to the
    commercial stu...

    I've looked at those recipes dozens of times but have never brewed one. I've never been
    convinced that they will clone the beer; they seem too simple. I'd love to hear if someone else
