    Are you routinely consuming large portions of yeast? Like, bottle conditioned and drinking the
    whole thing? If so, it'll happen.

    I think I have a problem .. My pot of boiling / mashing has a pipe under a pot that connects to
    a water pump. Perhaps to turn on the water pump to pass the wort into the fermenter, the turb
    which is i...

    Never heard that it can produce off flavors. Control the heat to keep the foam from overflowing
    the pot. It will subside. There is no reason to try to remove it.Probably the trub lipids and

    That does sound like a refractometer reading. You can't use a refractometer for FG without
    correcting for the presence of alcohol (there are a number of online calculators to do so).
    Uncorrected, it w...

    Yep, sounds like hot break to me but pics would be helpful to confirm. Some folks try to skim
    it off (and a select few experts who's names escape me actually advocate doing so), but
    generally there's ...

  • Posted in thread: Wort chilling in kettle vs chilling in fermenter? on 11-26-2015 at 05:01 AM
    Glass may shatter if you put boiling wort into it. Plastic buckets MAY be ok, or may melt or
    crack as well (I got a stress crack in one one time after storing hot sparge runnings in it
    temporarily, bu...
