Posted in thread: Well crap, temp just skyrocketed, help? on 12-03-2016 at 02:52 AM
No worries this late in the game. Once initial fermentation slows and the krausen starts to
clear, temps are no longer something to be concerned with.Edit to add: if you're rousing the

I would think this would be difficult to pinpoint exactly due to all the variables in play, but
you really only need one doubling of the population to give you enough cells to ferment double
Posted in thread: Batch -> Pitch -> growth phase -> Batch Again on 11-30-2016 at 06:40 PM
So, if I'm understanding your question correctly, you want to begin a fermentation with 5
gallons of wort and then add another 5 gallons soon thereafter, taking advantage of the yeast
growth and the f...

Would there be much of a difference to make a tincture with bourbon instead of vodka other than
the spirit taste itself? I'm assuming Vodka leads to a cleaner taste of whatever flavor your

Add a dose of spices and pepper during the last two minutes of the boil. If you find you need
more, add another dose to the keg.What are you using for chocolate? If using cocoa powder, add
it to the b...

If you have had 48 Hours at 30 PSI at 38 Degrees....your Carbonation will be around 4.25..That
is higher than Typical German HefeweizensI have to say, this has not been my experience going

May seem obvious, but did you check that the on/off switch is working?I'm pretty sure it is.
There are two, actually. There's the ice sensor arm that is manually raised to stop ice
production when the...

Sounds like a fairly easy test. Maybe the wiring to the solenoid is bad.Until you get water in
that cube tray there's not much else that's going to happen. I was going to suggest pouring
water in the ...

I've checked the supply line multiple times and verified that it is clear. I've replaced the
solenoid valve (twice!). I suppose I could still have a bad one, but I'm skeptical. I guess I
can attempt t...
