You really need a stainless basket (I got one custom built with feet and hooks from Chad at
arborfab.com) to replace the bag and your system will be similar to mine - no problems with
stuck recirc - w...
Posted in thread: Strange yeast behavior. Is US-05 getting weird on you? on 02-17-2015 at 02:31 AM
I too am having this problem. No appreciable krausen, moderate bubbling that seems to have
slowed down only 2.5 days after pitching commenced. Never seen this with US05. Bumped up the
temp a little to...

are more pieces...

I remove blo...

Open fermenters at Eisgrub, nice! I didn't notice that when I was there.

There is something enchanting about Mainz. I often stay there instead of Frankfurt when using
the airport (its close to the airport). Eisgrub Brau in Mainz is a pleasant enough brewpub,

This BIAB basket is exactly what I have been looking for. I have asked Chad for a quote for one
including feet similar to yours to keep it above the pickup - only problem is I am in Australia
so the p...

add the dark grain to the main wort, the kettle wort pH will drop similarly to as if you mashed
