    Whether it is quick or slow depends on the temp and strain. For S04 at 9.5C two weeks is about
    right. At that point you have a tiny batch of beer on top of the yeast and they are better off
    if you dec...

    Yeast live longest in wort, not beer or water.Just so we are all aware... If you try to store
    your yeast in wort, it quickly becomes beer.:mug:

    I use Starsan. Related to that, I "know a guy" who forgot to pull the hose from his blow off up
    and when he crash cooled his beer it sucked at least a cup of starsan back into the carboy. The
    beer car...

    Maybe it does, but it tasted awesome!

    Here's my trick for pizza on the grill.... put 3 or four empty soup cans on the grill and place
    your stone on top of them. This gets the pizza up into the top of the grill where the heat is.
    I always ...

    Judging from the vinyl tubing in the background of the picture, it looks like he has a blowoff
    in place. Good thing, because he's going to need it.

    Sounds like you need a Brewpi. Controlling the overshoot Is what it was built for. Because it
    is PID driven, it learns your system and turns the fridge (or heater) off prior to reaching
    your set point...

    I tried to get into building water profiles, then realized how much actual science is involved.

    get. It ...

    Ok, dry yeast t58 rehydrated plenty of yeast, sg 1.064, fermented in the 70's, 1week
    fermentation - pretty standard stuff and process I use for 5-10 gallon batches which always
    attenuate. That's why i...

    It's doubtful that the shape of the fermenter is causing it not to attenuate. You don't mention
    the temperature you fermented at, the o.g. of the beer, starter or not, or length of
    fermentation. My be...
