    You can stir the wort with a sanitized spoon while chilling to help with the heat transfer. Of
    course, a pump "whirlpooling" your wort will do a much better job.what would that setup look
    like to inco...

    It helps a lot to stir the chiller in wort as you cool. Doing this got me from 45+ min cool
    time to 15-20 min cool timei did stir quite a bit, and even gently hit the coils periodically
    thinking that ...

    i started out all grain recently, and to go along with that, built myself a nice simple
    immersion chiller out of 20' 3/8"D copper tubing. it worked pretty well i thought, but had a
    tough time getting ...

    You can also buy a 5 gallon nylon paint strainer bag and strain all that break/hop material out
    after it cools. This will also help aerate the wort prior to pitching. They catch pretty much
    all of the...

    let's see... more details... i got my supplies from austin homebrew, so i kind of used their
    suggested directions, which was 1.25 quarts/pound (10 lbs) so i mashed with 10.25 quarts (plus
    about .5 qua...

    I did my first all-grain on Saturday, and it mostly went okay I thought... except I didn't take
    into account the amount of wort I would lose due to avoiding the trub/hot break material at the
    bottom o...

  • Posted in thread: Worth it to make a yeast starter from yeast cake 12 hrs before brewing? on 04-30-2013 at 05:11 PM
    Thanks for all the advice. i ended up not making any starter as suggested, and just went with
    the washing process Friday night. I boiled my mason jars, and used some of the boiled water
    once cooled as...

    I'm about to attempt my first time doing all grain with a pretty standard american pale ale,
    and also have a pretty standard IPA that is ready to be bottled (from primary, no secondary). I
    wanted to t...

    You have quite a bit to learn. At an OG of 1.065, you under-pitched by a significant amount.
    You also pitched much too warm...low 60's would be more appropriate. And for this type of beer,
    there is no...

    Don't do anything. Check your gravity again in 3 days. If it is still at 1.017, then your
    fermentation is complete. You didn't really hurt anything by moving it to secondary early --
    there is still pl...
