You will be good. I got rid of that monster air lock. Get a rubber bung and use a regular air
lock. Or you can make a setup that you to use a blowoff hose.I also realized that I did not
turn the spigo...

Cool. Thanks. That's sort of what I was thinking. Just thought about it more as it got a little
sloppy with all the yeast that cropped out. I just cleaned it all up pretty good to get it
ready for som...

I just got one of these. I learned to late that it would not fit in my fermentation chamber
with the airlock on and it was too late to make another adjustment, so I just sanitized the cap

I have had issues with scaling recipes. Everything I read for the most part just says that hop
utilization is the big factor. When I try to use the "scale up" on Beersmith, my grain

I usually buy my grains from the LHBS the evening before I brew and brew the next morning, and

prior to the...

I've always pitched the same yeast.With only ~7 points to go, you probably won't pick up much
secondary yeast flavor unless it's a Brett strain. Saisons yeasts usually have high attenuation

With 75% attenuation and adding 6 points to your FG with lactose, your FG should be around
1.021. So I agree you probably have a stuck fermentation.The only thing I found that reliably

My OG on milk stout was 1.060 for 10 gallons and 1.8 lbs of lactose. The mash was a 20 minute
acid rest at 104, 30 minutes at 140, and 30 minutes at 158. The fermentation started about a
little over 2...

you are fine, you killed a bunch of yeast pitching dry yeast into wortso no worry S_MTrue. at
~200 billion cells per packet, I routinely over pitch because I usually need a more than 200
cells but not...

Did you hydrate the yeastNo. I never rehydrate US-05. I just sprinkle it in the wort.
