You really risk oxidizing (and hence ruining) the beer that way. Careful racking is generally

racking can help...

What yeast did you use?
Posted in thread: STC 1000 "Ebay" Temperature Controller Build on 03-23-2014 at 09:15 PM
I have my temp probe between some foam insulation and my fermenter. My stc1000 reads 17.1, but
the thermometer on the carboy reads 66F. How do I change the stc to read 18.8?Sent from my iPad

I also wonder if it's your hoses. New hoses can be plasticky for a few pours, but will go away.

Posted in thread: Base grain 50# sacks, which ones? on 02-05-2014 at 07:49 PM
Thomas Fawcet Pale Malt, Rahr 2 Row and Marris Otter are 3 that I've bought. Join a Homebrew

I've used cascade in some American style stouts. It's good. I'm brewing a stout Sunday with
them. I agree with the above suggestions and personally I would drop the flakes wheat. Don't
add too many sp...
Posted in thread: Blood Orange Honey Saison on 01-05-2014 at 03:49 PM
