    you need to do a water bath. place the carboy or fermenter in a rubermaid like rectangular
    container that has about half as much liquid (in height not gallons) as the fermenter. switch
    out bottles of ...

    I did check the gravity again... Maybe this hydro is out of whack... So I hold the hydro up,
    drop it in... Goes to 1.020.... Do it again.. Goes to 1.054... give it a little spin to free it
    up, drops a...

  • Posted in thread: Not enough water added to wort? on 10-16-2009 at 03:30 AM
