    If it's reading 70 that usually means 1.070 on the specific gravity scale. Double check the
    scale inserted in the hydrometer, it may say somewhere on there.

    I love this place: Ask 10 brewers a question, get 15 different answers. LOL Here's yet another
    answer:I simply pasteurize any fruit that's going into secondary for my beer. Put the fruit in
    a large po...

    Definitely contact them. In a tablespoon sample size I would expect to see a few whole grains,
    definitely not that many. :(

    Have you poured more than a pint? Pour a couple and see where you're at. If you're just pouring
    a small sample you're only getting what's in the beer out line in the keg. More than a pint and
    you'll b...

    Well, we're in Canada and I understand what you're saying. We've got a ton of crap weather
    here, too. In winter when I cool in to the fermenter we still set the cooling for 70F
    regardless of the ambi...

    In my brewery if we wanted to ferment warmer we would just leave the cooling off or set it for
    a higher than ambient temp. 23hl of fermenting wort can easily climb up to north of 80F in the
    early sta...

    Oh, and if you ask 10 of us this type of question get ready for 15 different answers. LOL (as
    evidenced by the above)

    In my process, and in an ideal world, I would transfer onto the hops, let sit for a week or
    less, cold crash, gel, keg/carb, serve. Reasons for the above: I reuse my yeast so I don't want
    the hop debr...

  • Posted in thread: Dry Hopping in Primary Fermentation on 05-26-2015 at 11:56 PM
    Why not? I do it all the time. Wait for fermentation to finish, transfer onto the dry hops,
    wait 5-7 days, package. I would add that after the dry hop period is done I will cold crash and
    gel before k...

  • Posted in thread: Hop schedule ideas needed for session ale pls on 03-15-2015 at 12:26 PM
    I just did a session ale as a one off for my brewery. It was well received and had the
    following schedule for hopping: 50g Cascade FWH50g Cascade 10 min50g Centennial 10 min50g
