  • Posted in thread: Aeration for delayed pitching on 07-02-2015 at 12:19 AM
    I can't imagine it would have too much of an effect only 24 hours later, but if I have to delay
    pitching like that I'll aerate just before pitching. Less chance of infection with less
    agitation/things...

    Make a starter with some of it and call it a day. Been there. There's probably a good amount of
    healthy cells in there, but I wouldn't use it straight into a new brew without a starter.

    Designing Great Beers has a pretty interesting history on many styles, and yes, according to
    them many historical brews were made only in certain geographical areas or during certain times
    of the year...

  • Posted in thread: 80 hours and no fermentation; infection risk? on 06-24-2015 at 01:52 PM
    Besides pulling a sample and looking under a scope, only time will tell if it's too late. If it
    were me, I would reoxygenate and get a proper amount of fresh yeast in there quick. It will be
    said, so ...

    Yeah, this is a to each their own kind of debate, but I agree, you have to know the beer temp.
    With 5 gallons, I doubt (and it's been shown) there is little difference between the inner beer
    temp and ...

    Djones, what kind of chamber do you have? I think that makes the most difference in the ideal
    parameters.

  • Posted in thread: Thermostat temperature swings due to differential setting on 06-21-2015 at 10:16 PM
    I used to do 2 degrees, now do 1 degree with coolant jacket, notice no difference. If it makes
    sense for safely cycling the heating/cooling system, within the ideal bounds of the yeast, I
    doubt 3 degr...

    At that temp, I bet it was done before 24 hours. Take a gravity reading to be sure, and let it
    clean up for a week before doing anything.

    It ain't pretty inside, and kind of hard to see, sort of a strange fridge. Each shelf was a
    chilling coil, so a couple hours of careful bending and I got almost all of it in the 48qt
    igloo cooler full...

    Here's my newest addition, fridge coils submerged in a 12gal glycol bath, pond pumps
    circulating to copper coils on the outside of the buckets. Has enough juice to keep at least 3
    buckets at lagering ...
