Raise the temp slowly up to 72 to finish out. There is no certainty with predicting yeast
progress. It'll do what it will do.

If the wort is heating up or was oxygenated it will off-gas before fermentation. Your extremely
unlikely to see active fermentation/krausening at 6 hours. Give it 24-48 and if it's not going

Posted in thread: American Wheat with Citra or Hallertau? on 01-24-2015 at 11:44 PM
Citra is a distinct and powerful hop. It would be a waste to try the hallertau as you're not
likely to notice it's contribution if the citra is added late as it should be.
Posted in thread: oxidation at dough in? on 01-24-2015 at 11:40 PM
It's unlikely to be during your dough-in. When you boil it removes a lot of free oxygen from
the liquid. I had a similar issue once and it turns out the grain I was using was past its
prime, but the b...
Posted in thread: Is this a good way to oxygenated the wort post boil and post cooldown? on 01-24-2015 at 11:36 PM
There's a bigger chance of introducing spoiling organisms with an open system like that, but it
will oxygenate to some extent.

You may be fine depending on the pH and alcohol content of the beer hindering spoiling
organisms, but you'll find out sooner than later.

BLC is the way to go on lines. Oxyclean is OK in a pinch. Don't use chlorine chemicals on
faucets as it can pit the metal.
Posted in thread: 5 or 10 gallon mash tun on 01-16-2015 at 04:04 PM
Go as big as you can afford. No upgrading later. Also, if you decide to do a big beer, the 5
gallon tun may not hold enough grain for a 5 gallon batch. To help insulate the 10 gallon
cooler, drill 4 s...
Posted in thread: How do I use what I learned? on 01-15-2015 at 11:04 PM
That's a simple question with a ridiculously complex answer. There are so many resources
available for brewers right now. If you're looking to brew German beers, start with German
ingredients and go f...

I doesn't matter if you lay them on their sides, but you're going to stir up the yeast before
you pour if it's collected in the side of the bottle rather than the bottom. Not so bad for a
hefe, but ma...
