    The extract doesn't get boiled off, so you should never add DME to make up for water lost
    through evaporation.At flameout, if you discover you boiled off too much water (taking into
    consideration ther...

    And how low is the spigot? As low as it would be for a bottling bucket? I ask, because I think
    that would be below the trub. I was thinking of putting the spigot about halfway up the side of
    the bucke...

    I happen to be fermenting some lagers in a friend's garage refrigerator/freezer, which I do
    several times a year, and I need to check the gravity to see if it's time for their diacetyl
    rest.I have to ...

    I use a mylar baloon, held onto the airlock with a rubber band. It collects CO2 during
    fermentation, which is then sucked back in during the cold crash.

    I use an S-type airlock, filled with cheap vodka, and I attach a mylar balloon to the top of
    the airlock after a couple of days of fermentation. The only thing getting sucked back in when
    I cold crash...

    And if you poured your top-off water through the grain in the bag, letting it collect in the
