    Also make sure you are hitting your temperature for your spare water. 168-172 is a good range.

    Higher temps result in more rapid fermentation and create fruity esters from the yeast. Cooler
    temps (62-68) are slower but ferment cleaner and more to the flavor profile of the yeast.

    I have a pumpkin ale ready for transfer to the secondary. I was thinking about adding more

    another 2-3lbs...

    fermentation to where my lid is coming off and I've had to replace my airlock with a blow off
    hose. Should ...

    It's not an absolute necessity, but if you're a stickler for detail and procedure then it
    should be done. It adds a couple of minutes and the grain bed helps filter stuff really well.

    All things being equal, I would rather plant my hops in the ground. However, due to constraints
    with renting a duplex, having a typical garden isn't feasible. I have 4 planters right now and
    they are ...

    also made sure that the hygrometer you use is correctly calibrated for the temperature?
