Posted in thread: Fermentation temp dropped for 4 days - is all OK? on 07-27-2015 at 01:11 PM
Hi All,I recently brewed an AG IPA w/US-05. I pitched, threw it in the fermentation chamber,
noticed visible signs of fermentation the next day. ~36 hours after I pitched, my temp
controller failed, a...

I've been using my CFC for some time now, and it's worked like a charm. My ground water has
always been cold enough to bring it to 60-65 degrees. I did not, however, anticipate the crazy
heat we've ha...

Hi All,I'm an AG brewer who puts EVERYTHING from the boil kettle into the fermenter.Before

Now, with that said, why would you need to "suck" on the line to get the flow started if you're
using a gravity system? Do you not have an outlet and valve at the bottom of your boil kettle?

with my new CFC, I think I need one to get the flow started (it's worked without one, but I
need to suck fr...
Posted in thread: STC1000: If I can do it.... on 02-26-2015 at 12:15 AM
