  • Posted in thread: Do you Cold Crash? (everyone vote! especially if you don't) on 04-05-2013 at 12:30 AM
    Used to cold crash every batch. But don't do much anymore, I figure the bottle in the fridge is
    the equivalent to clod crashing and my beers seem to be just as clear (providing I don't
    disturb the tru...

    I just took the lid off my fermentor after two weeks and found a fairly thick layer of what I
    think is yeast and hop particle/trub on top. I was expecting a little on top but thought the

    for Christmas. It also is the two week mark for my Northern Brewer 1 gal kit. Both are my first

    fermentor that just sits there because I don't want to submerge the spigot. Not sure how I
    would ensure it w...

    Obviously new here and I had no idea you had to let your yeast soak for 15 minutes so I just
    pitched my yeast, that's a crappy term IMHO because you can pitch it when it's wet, but anyway
    is my beer g...
