Posted in thread: My Yeast Are Climbing the Walls! on 04-28-2016 at 06:02 PM
Ive had this happen to a lesser extent with some strains of lager yeast. The krausen falls...
to the sides of the fermenter half way down. They eventually fall out when I lower the temp
after the d-re...
Posted in thread: Getting water checked and Chloramines on 04-27-2016 at 09:52 PM
Chloramines are bad for brewing and can create phenolic off flavors. However, they are easily

tablets, at a ...

Ugh. I dont have a direct fire-able mash tun. This is getting problematic. Perhaps i should

without a la...

Did you jostle the keg? It could just be yeast coming up. Might just need to resettle for 24
hours. (most lager yeasts are powdery) Other than that it could be colder now, and you have a
