    What is a hop stand/whirlpool?Hopstand is a hop addition after the boil. Sometimes they are
    added immediately after the boil, and sometimes after it has cooled to the 160-180 deg F range.

    I did this recently. With the kettle lid on, the wort temperature after 30 minutes was at 180
    degrees F. From what I read in the literature, the temperature range of serious concern wrt
    contamination ...

    Demus,Good point - there sure is a lot of information out there on that subject. It is just one
    of those issues that will remain like so many other choices for techniques. Cooking is pretty
    simple, an...

    I'm curious as to what brands of dry yeast say not to rehydrate them. When you say that
    generally it speeds up fermentation by 24 hours by rehydrating, that is a good thing, not just
    a side benefit. W...

    By no means am I at the advanced stage, but I'll add a thought or two.1. Hydrating dry yeast is
    an issue for a number of reasons, some of which are pretty complex. Some dry yeasts

    I'll add a bit on priming sugar at bottling time. Add the priming sugar solution to the
    bottling bucket before transferring the beer to it. It helps to mix it. It is good practice to
    coil the siphon t...

    I have the same problem using my immersion chiller. You could try to fill the sink with ice
    water and sit the kettle in it during the normal chilling.One of these days I plan to buy a
    roll of soft cop...

  • Posted in thread: Why won't my Krausens go away? on 06-29-2014 at 11:38 AM
    For what it's worth, I have had about 10 of my first 15 or so batches so far leave a stiff
    krausen on top after fermentation. There was no waiting it out, even after a month. They had
    just turned stif...
