    just pulled the empty US-05 packet from the trash. i'm assuming the bottom line of numbers is
    the expiration date...04...2015. the top line reads 87384...120...0704.

    hooray for live yeasties. 18 hours post-pitch in the porter and there was the slightest layer
    of krausen. now 24 hours in, a solid 1/2 inch layer and plenty of bubbles in the blow-off
    bucket. your ana...

    Glad to see this post this morning cause I just started wondering the same thing. I sprinkled
    DRY for the last couple years, aerated with a venturi tube, and didn't really bother
    controlling the ferme...

    acafro, forgive me for being thick...i'm not an electrician (nor do i play one on TV), but if
    the STC-1000 is, in fact, only rated to 10 amps, and a 16GA extension cord to 13 amps, wouldn't
    the OP be ...

    Just built mine, and used 16GA throughout. According to the label on my chest freezer, it only
    draws 5 amps, so I figure 16GA ought to cover it. Haven't actually tested it with a full load
    yet though....

    Hey Yoop, how much would the 16 oz of bourbon alter the FG? I'm guessing I should have taken a
    reading on the porter BEFORE adding the bourbon, but I neglected to do so.

    Thanks Yoop...good to know. Was afraid I may have two cases of bottle-bombs conditioning in the
    spare bedroom.

    So I'm a bit perplexed. Brewed up an AG version of Northern Brewers "Bourbon Barrel Porter".
    Held her steady at a 153 degrees through an hour mash, and hit my target OG of 1.065, with 5
    gallons into t...
