    Taping your temp probe onto the side of your fermentor won't get you good temps of the middle
    of the wort. It may be fine for smaller batches but 10-15 gallons of wort get really warm from
    fermentatio...

    I ferment 1056 at about 64 degrees. I do not raise the temperature at all unless I take the
    fermenter out of the chamber to make room for another. I have always had good results.I started
    fermenting a...

    73 is too warm. Second, bubbles don't mean jack. Take a gravity reading if you want to see how
    the progress is going. If you can see through your fermenter then just take more gravity
    readings to see ...

    Hi,I have an Irish Red Ale in the primary, using Wyeast 1056 (American Ale). I pitched it
    around noon on Friday, so it's been going for approximately 3 days, 6 hours.On my last several
    beers, I've bee...

  • Posted in thread: Dry Hop In Secondary - A Lot Of Activity on 05-03-2015 at 08:10 PM
    Hi,I'm brewing an IPA that calls for dry hopping. I had it in the primary for 10 days, and the
    gravity had leveled out. It was a little on the high side for the recipe (1.016), but still
    within the ex...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast ACT1000 vs Wyeast 1335 on 04-25-2015 at 02:41 PM
    I have no idea on flavor yet, and I haven't taken any gravity readings other than my OG
    (1.057). But this yeast is showing the longest measurable activity of any I've used.I pitched
    it at 11:30am Satu...

    Thank you very much for your time and detailed information; I'll have several new things to try
    on my next brew - hopefully next weekend.

    Unless there is a problem, my preference is more of a hard boil than a softly roiling boil. I
    boil off nearly 2 gallons/hour in my relatively dry climate. That's ok, and my beer is nice and
    clear as a...

    Ok, after reading the replies in this post, and other related posts, I have two items to work
    on for my next beer.First, I'm going to reduce my starting volume to 6 gallons and back off the
    heat on my...

  • Posted in thread: Does the boil intensity matter? on 04-20-2015 at 04:37 PM
    On a second note, are you adding all your LME/extract at the beginning of the boil? That could
    cause excessive caramelization and wort darkening. Better to add only a third to half, and the
    rest at fl...
