For the record I'm a brewer at a local brewery. I have a degree in biochemistry and molecular
biology. I'm not saying I know everything or that what you are saying is wrong. I was merely

I wasn't intending to be rude, I was trying to correct a statement that wasn't entirely true.
So I shouldn't have said not true at all. My apologies. Fast ferment test Refractometers are
way easier an...

If everything went well the predicted FG and real FG will be the same, but I wouldn't risk
crash cooling at predicted FG.Not true at all. FG is based upon the health of the yeast and the
size of the ...

Gravity readings, my friends, gravity readings!!! Then and only then will your beer be done. On
top of that, you should crash cool before you rack. If you are trying to hit 1.016 and you rack

Lol! If only I...

How do you aerate? what was your mash temp? Stuck fermentations can be easily attributed to an
improper oxygenation level (or the O2 level was too high, probably not the case though). If

what was your aeration method? A quick shake will just not suffice. I swirl the **** out of
mine for a good 5 minutes or so or until there is a good 10" on foamy head on my wort. Or you
can pump air i...

to the original poster,the oxygenation is for pre-fermentation, like the others have stated

But after the wild sex is overBrewers yeast has lost the ability to have sex since it has been
