    Brewed this last Sunday. Fermentation began about 20 hours post pitch. Bubbling has slowed way
    down at this point. Wort/beer is nice pumpkin color but very cloudy. I am going to leave in
    primary until...

    Just made a home made fermentation chamber. I live in Houston area where temps have been 100+

    Going to brew a pils and a stout tomorrow if weather is not too hot. Forecast to be 107 in

  • Posted in thread: Dunkleweizen in the bucket on 10-05-2010 at 02:33 PM
    Don't depend on airlock. From all research I have done on Dunkel, give it 21 days primary, then
    check for 3 stable days of hydro readings, then bottle. Even though my krausen is beginning to
    fall, I k...

    Leave it. I have a Dunkel, brewed 10 days ago, krausen just now starting to fall. Gonna leave
    mine another 2-3 weeks, then straight to bottle. No need to rack to a clarifying carboy (
    secondary ) as t...

    keep the banana ...
