Posted in thread: Is it ok to have controller probe immersed in water? on 05-19-2015 at 12:02 PM
I re-did mine so only the probe is in the water. The crimp is now just outside the cap. The
probe just fits through the hole, and I have some paraffin around it so I think there should be
little to no...

Hi,I'm using a Johnson A419 controller in my keezer. Initially I had used Velcro to attach the
probe to one of the kegs; I'd also covered the probe with a piece of neoprene. I noticed the
keezer was s...

I'm late to the party, but I just got a plastic 5-gallon BMB to use as a secondary when I dry

Next time consider tying a bit of fishing line to the draw strings of the hop bag and run it

beers, and cold crashed as well. My cold crash up to now has involved putting as many ice jugs
as I could i...

Hi,I have an IPA that has been dry hopped in the secondary for a week now. I'm planning to cold
crash it with gelatin findings.Should I remove the hops before I crash it? The hops are bagged

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

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
