    Racked today, 25 days in primary. There was still some remaining floating chunks but not much.
    Smelled of alcohol, more than I would expect. Guessing the coopers didn't finish. Maybe should
    have left ...

    Thx, DS. That makes a lot of sense. Gonna try to rack over today (24 days in primary). If it
    hasn't finished fermenting I'm assuming the yeast had issues in addition to this aeration
    issue.

    Thanks for the info. That makes a lot of sense. Does anyone have a take on this aeration
    issues? Do you brewers do it? Pretty sure it was increasing the chances of gunk in my airlock
    but does it impac...

    18 days in and it seems to be clearing up some but still has some krausen on top. In the past I
    had been aerating by tossing the batch back and forth between the brew pot and fermentor five
    times as s...

    Wow! Optimism. I've moved all ten batches after two weeks and haven't seen this before. I
    upgraded to a freezer and controller recently and lowered temps to 65 but pulled another batch
    two days ago th...

    Well, 10 batches in and I think I lost one. This is a wheat beer using coopers dry at 16 days.
    At 14 it looked like the krausen just may not have settled. The bubbles in the pic appeared
    more recently...

    I set and forget at 12 psi and the keg gets very drinkable at 5 days, 7 and I'm digging in. The
    temp of your fridge is not the same as the temp of your beer. Put a glass if water in the
    fridge and tes...

    I've been using the chart below which suggests 45 and 40 degrees should both carb fine at 12
    psi. I certainly wouldn't expect it so over carbed that co2 would be in the line. Am I missing
    something?

  • Posted in thread: Co2 T split = foam? on 04-10-2013 at 08:10 PM
    Thanks, guys. Since moving to the new keg alls been good. The keg getting low plus the temp
    change due to adding a second keg may have done it but the temp change was minimal (5 degrees
    or so) and I'm...

    On a side note, loving this hobby but lots to learn. Really appreciate the help.
