Yeh lesson learned. But I'm sticking to carboys. I started a bucket brewer and was converted.

It was little too sweet to judge before dry hopping. My hop schedule during boil was: Simco (

minutes. I shou...

At this time during the dry hopping it is at room temperature ranging between 60 to 70 F. So is

OG=1.065, pitched a good starter of Lechuof yeast, fermented at 63F for 2 days, 65F for 3 days

Hi guys, I know it is an old thread, but I have this question about digital temperature
