I also missed the ideal gravity range and hit 1.017 (was stuck at 1.020 so better then
nothing). I was doomed after having unexpectedly high efficiency in the mash giving me a 1.061

For those batches that you are cold crashing around 1.010 and kegging, how long do they stay
fresh in the keg at fridge temps (i.e. what is the shelf life of these quick not fully
fermented batches in...

CVilleKevin Question - I like the concept of reaching desired FG, racking off yeast to
secondary and cold crashing, then after crashing racking into third as a method to try to stop

degree steep is...

(shouldn't impact d...
