Brewed a 5 gallon batch with 1.066 original gravity. Added Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale. It's been
almost 5 weeks now and the gravity is only 1.022 and it still tastes sweet. Should I just give
it more ti...

What was the temperature on the night that you set it out? I believe that mid-50s are the

Made a starter with some DME and dried wild hops. Left it out overnight on a cool spring

Looks like hot break to me ... Just a lot of itThats just one piece. There were many pieces of
that size and even bigger. Any idea what could cause this much hot break?
Posted in thread: Too Much Hot Break ? on 02-29-2012 at 04:18 PM
looks nice!!So it's safe to assume that a bunch of that stuff moving around in the boil is
fine? Wonder how come it hasn't happened to me before. Maybe it did but I just didn't notice
because of the h...

I have always used pellets, and they do produce a lot foam. I just throw mine in the boil and
strain them after. I have never seen "golf ball " sized egg dop soup looking stuff. Did you
happen to take...
